Last weekend we were lucky enough to be invited to a family wedding in Cornwall - It didn't rain which constitutes at least a minor miracle this summer! It was a truely wonderful occasion with reminders of the brides heritage (Russian) the groom's heritage ( English / Dutch) and the country where the happy couple are living (India). Which is the provenance of the gorgeous umbrella featured in this photo. In a traditional Indian wedding the groom often arrives on a white horse carrying a decorated umbrella ( I have seen this but a long time ago so hope I have the details right). There were no horses at this cliff top wedding but there was a gorgeous umbrella.
