What a day!

Sunday, May 1, 2011

It was an early morning with the alarm going off at 5.15 am, but it was SO worth it! It was actually quite quiet on the streets and the bus as we made our way in to central London with our friends. Once we got to Hyde Park, though, there were already a lot of people around with costumes ranging from wedding guest attire, to flag wearing, to men dressed as brides, to those wearing masks of the royal family. Even at 7 am there was already a party atmosphere. We were able to set up our picnic spot close to one of the 3 huge screens. We had various friends and friends of friends join us throughout the morning and the party just grew. The crowds swelled and by the time the wedding started there 300,000 people there!

It was fantastic watching the wedding with such a large, enthusiastic crowd. At the first sighting of the queen the crowd was on it's feet and through the pre-service and service there was much cheering, oohing and ahhing and singing. When William and Kate said I do there were corks popping all around as people toasted to their wedding and after the wedding there was confetti shot in to the sky over us.

My highlight was when Kate and William met at the top of the isle and as the organ played triumphantly the sun finally came out to the cheers of the crowd.
