We even had some blog-related confetti made up of cutlery, wine glasses, aeroplanes, black cats to represent our pet Fred, and uncooked macaroni pasta (which hurts when people through it at you!)

The top three swapped places quite a bit during the count which made for a day of excitement in addition to our wedding!

Paws up no fix for The Butterfly and the Pig South winning even though our wedding was held there – Fred would never let that happen! The scores are provided by those who take part and return their scorecards.
