A few weekends ago we ventured with Mister B’s mother to the wonderful The Cheese Shop in Chester to order some cheeses for an alternative to the wedding cake. We realised after we invited Mrs B that she actually dislikes uncooked cheese and this was possibly her idea of hell. Oh dear!
As Mister B and I are huge cheese lovers we thought it would be nice to have some at the wedding for everyone to nibble on.Walking into the shop was like heaven, the smell was amazing. The Cheese shop has so many different types of cheese it is difficult to know where to start. We tried a few cheeses hard and soft which were all lovely. Some nutty, some sweet, some salty, some garlicky. The first layer will be a lovely Garlic Yarg, which is quite subtle and is wrapped in wild garlic leaves. Next will be a Barkham Blue, a lovely creamy blue, followed by a Wigmore Brie for the top. As I am a vegetarian, I have made sure that they are all suitable for us veggies.
When Mister B cut up the tree trunk we had an extra board so this will be perfect for the cheese. We will look to cut this as the wedding breakfast finishes and the evening guests arrive. Mister B’s Aunty Ruth has kindly agreed to make some of her award winning chutneys to go with the cheese which is jolly nice! I have visions of the cheese not making the reception…. we MUST not eat the cheese before then.
After all the trauma of the cheese shop for Mrs B, we headed to get coffee and cake and then strolled around Chester walls. It has been ages since I walked the walls and the city centre. I must admit it was nice to get back and see it all again.
From one cheese to another. We would like everyone to say cheese on the day for the rather talented photographer Naomi Bullivant. I know, I know that was a shocking link. Honestly I have never worked in local radio and have no ambition to. Anyway back to saying cheese.
Naomi will be capturing the preparations the night before and mingling with everyone on the day/evening. Mister B and I will miss out on a lot as we will be too busy messing up our vows, making our faces ache with smiling and trying to negotiate using the toilet with a wedding dress on (that is only me I am hoping). So photographs will give us something to look back on and smile. So if you see a lady with a lens then smile, gurn or give a wave-Mister B and I will love you all forever if you do.
Welcome to our party Naomi!
