The morning after our wedding party, we said exhausted, tearful, grateful and slightly hungover goodbyes to our families and set off for our pre-New York few days of calm, quiet and rest in Somerset.
Several hours later, we arrived in Mells, dropped our bags in our beautiful room at The Talbot, and headed across the road for a much needed cup of tea and piece of cake in The Walled Garden.
Hay bales, long tables, gingham tablecloths, a fabulous range of cakes and lots of teapots are hidden away amongst the tall, roaming plants, polytunnels filled with sweet peas, dove cots, and splashes of sunshine.
We meandered through the vibrant greenery, and sat, smiling sleepily as we drank our way through pots of tea and slices of perfectly homemade loaf cakes: exactly what was needed after a week of planning, the most fantastic party, emotional goodbyes, and a long drive.
