a nice day for a white wedding

The weather here in the Wairarapa is glorious sunshine, still and warm, perfect wedding weather! Forecast for London is white cloud and 19 degrees, maybe they should relocate the wedding here :)

Kate Middleton and her sister Pippa have now checked into the Goring Hotel in London, a five star hotel next to Buck House.

Looking at the rooms on their website it looks like this will be mostly likely the one Kate and her family will be staying in.

this suite is known as the Splendid Silk Rooms

adjoining rooms that are elegent

and pretty perfect for the future queen of England!

I wonder if Kate will have time to reflect in the gardens

All the best Will & Kate - Aroha!
