Oh what a blessed day it is because Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have allowed us a hint of a glimpse of their nuptials, that they
sold ’graciously shared’ photographs of to Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.
I’m a bit disappointed so far and feel vaguely like a toddler who’s about to vomit following a sugar splurge after clicking through images of close ups of the sweets on offer at the dessert table.
At least we know there must have been quite a few Hollywood types there as the cakes look totally untouched. But couldn’t they have got the cleaner to give the table a polish first?
The bouquet reminds me of a dusty old fake one that my nan on the side of the family we don’t mention kept on her spare downstairs lavatory, but at least I finally got to find out what the feck s’mores are (below) and what coffee and cream-covered espresso beans look like.
I think they must have been penny-pinching a bit as there were only 35 people there (must of whom were probably from Martha Stewart Weddings) and I see no evidence of the near-compulsory free champagne bar you usually get at a reception as a reward to the guests for forcing them to go to church and certainly no disco balls or a dance floor.
What’s most interesting is MSW Editors claiming that Lively and Reynolds didn’t sell them the photos, oh no, they ‘graciously’ let them share them after creating the ‘elements’ together.
“We quickly discovered that Ryan and Blake are not like the many altar-bound celebrities who sell their big-day photos to the highest bidder. While they remain protective of images of them on their most heartfelt occasion, they graciously let us share pictures of the elements we created together.”
So did they basically blag a freebie from Martha Stewart Weddings in return for letting them have the photos, because surely that’s just same as selling them to People magazine?
Oh and I nearly forgot to say that if you’re sober enough to be walking past a newsstand on Dec 24th you can see more if you BUY the magazine.
Blake’s going to end up like Carrie from ‘Sex and The City’ when that magazine did the article on her that she thought was entitled ‘Forty and Fabulous!’ and it turned out to really be called ‘Forty and Fabulous?’ and she wound up at the end of the episode walking past bundles of them strung-up, unsold and waiting to go back to the publishers.
But I’m sure it was a lovely day and that’s the main thing eh?
