Flower girls in the countryside

This year the M family welcomed another family into it when the girls Uncle N married Auntie R. We couldn't attend the official wedding as it took place in Oman during term time. However they had their vows blessed here in the UK during June and asked the girls to be their flower girls. The girls had been looking forward to the day for months knowing they would have 'princess dresses' and fairy wands.
The blessing took part in Grandma and Grandad M's village church at Crosby Ravensworth and the party nearby in Morland in a big country house that they had hired out for the weekend. Dressed in 'almost' identical mid calf ivory dresses (thanks Ebay) and Ivory ballerina shoes from H&M we decided to add a touch of colour with a dusky pink flower headband, again from H&M. Auntie R wanted the girls to have fun so opted for them to have wands instead of a heavy bouquet of flowers. They looked the part of flower girls. Trying to get a picture perfect pose those proved difficult due to the excitement.
