Wedding Day

Well its happened! We’re finally Mr and Mrs Brown.

Everyone dreams of the perfect wedding, walking down the aisle, the perfect dress, feeling like a princess. Ours was as close to perfect as we could hope for.

We’re now off on our Honeymoon.

Until then heres some pictures our Best Man took with his phone, some of which he emailed all round our work friends!!!

Yes! Thanks Alison for all the Confetti!!!”

Can we also say a big thank you to all our family, friends and the Hotel and Photographer for making the day very special.
Especially to the two Angelas for the readings, the two Roberts for being our Witnesses and lastly to Paul for not revealing to much about us in his Best Man’s speech.

Caroline’s Graduation – Number 2

Not satisfied with one graduation; Caroline sponsored by Mouchel under took a second higher education qualification, this time a HNC in Computing.

“The last two years have seen much change in my life, many highs, of which Richard proposing to me, on the Wales biking tour has to be the most memorable, to terrible lows, the death of my Mother. Its been two years of fun, sadness and many late nights. I would here like to publicly thank my family and Richard for all they have had to put up with, and now with much shame here are the pictures… they may not stay up for long …

Thank you; Caroline”.

Congratulations Caroline

Welcome to the Brown Family Blog:

I first started blogging on 24/10/2005.  This was a simple hand written website called www.br0wn.uklinux.net.  Since then the site has moved to www.brown-family.org.uk and now to this new WordPress site *since  13/11/2010.  See the computer category around that date for how we got this new site up and running.

I must thank the open source community for there efforts in producing such wonderful software as mysql and WordPress.  And to my work colleague, fellow  photographer and friend, Chris Bennett.  He got a wonderful site up and running and this is a pale copy. Thanks Chris for the inspiration. And also thank your for getting my photography up and going again. It was Chris letting me use his Canon 1D that got me back into photography.  Moving to digital and now back to film and digital.

The majority of blog entries on this site are Photography related, but with a bit of Family New and Motorcycling news thrown in that will not interest most people but may be of interest to family members.

This is the first entry from that site, now moved to this new WordPress site.

Myself and Caroline have wanted to visit the Eden Project and Gardens of Heligan for sometime and Alan, Caroline’s father who had been before also wanted to visit again.

Most people would have visited in summer and Alan was somewhat surprised that we wanted to visit in January but we both had leave to use up so off we went.

We stopped at a nice bed and breakfast in St Austell’s and using the computer in the hall we checked with the BBC website’s for the weather forecast. We decided to go to the Eden Project first as the weather was suppose to be worse tomorrow, and the Eden Project is mainly undercover.

The grounds to the Eden Project are much better in the summer but the domes are well worth seeing no matter what the season.

We did not make the mistake my mum, Christine made when visiting. We took the land train to the first dome!

The picture to the left was taken in the temperate dome. They had a display all about the grape and wine with lots of sculptures. In fact there are sculptures all over the grounds.

The following day we visited the Gardens of Heligan. These were magnificent gardens and there is plenty to explore, if you have children then don’t forget to try and find the face in the wood! If you get the chance do read the book, all about how the garden was discovered, and restored.
