Here's a few photos from my niece's Prom on Friday.
We offered to drive her to the event in one of the cars a few months ago.
From what I can gather there was a serious case of "Teenage Prom politics"
which meant that a lovely lad from her German class ended up in the second car...
Mark proudly drove his niece in the blue car..
and I was 'chauffeuse' to her friend, N.
It took an hour to get across Worcester in the rush hour and out to
Whitbourne Hall (on the border with Herefordshire).
This beautiful house is divided into flats and was featured on the TV
series 'Country House Rescue' a few years ago.
They now make money to maintain the building through weddings and Proms.
The grand portico is a fantastic backdrop for photos
It also resonated superbly to the sound of two V8 engines!!!
We parked the cars up and went for a little wander around.
The old Orangery at the back of the picture has seen better days..
but it's still beautiful in the mid-summer light.
The main reception rooms at the front of the picture were laid out for the meal.
The tables looked lovely - but it was hard to get a good image through the glass.
It was my sister's birthday on Thursday -
so we all met up at her house for a curry later in the evening.
I was shattered from the busy week at work but it was a great way to start the weekend!
