The Second Anniversary Of The 'Wee Folks' Wedding.

June 21, 2012, marks the second wedding anniversary of Fidelina the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey the garden gnome. May we relive the joy of that most special and enchanting of celebrations. Below is the reposting. The events that led up to the wedding and the link at the bottom, takes you into the land of magic, where no judgement is ever made. Indeed, where stigma is an alien concept. Savour the wonder, the allurement of it all. Immerse yourself in such sweet innocence.


Today would be a day of magic, wonder and inspiration.  For today was the 'wee folks' wedding.  A joyous celebration of the deep, powerful love of Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey, the garden gnome.  The above photograph is Fidelina posing with her sister bridesmaid, Venetia, as they make final preparations in anticipation of the event.


Above is a photograph of Teagan, the best gnome, and of course, Geoffrey, the happy groom.

The wee folks were a bit reluctant to have the wedding in the day time.  Yet, the day and the starting time were symbolic of the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere.  As if by magic, the ceremony commenced and the sun hid behind the moon.
The wee folks would be most honoured if you have a look at the photographs from their wedding.  The wee folks wedding, a profound statement that true love conquers all.

Clicking on the link below will take you to this truly magical wedding.

  9. What an astonishing party Gary, I suppose you were invited and thus had the occasion to kiss the hand of the bride. She is a most graceful little fairy, I am sure her touch can turn rocks into gold. You're so dear to me :).

    1. Hi unikorna,
      It was an amazing, inspiring event. They quite graciously allowed me exclusive access to the wedding and yes, I bestowed a gentle kiss upon the tender cheek of the beautiful, blushing bride :)
      I must go and see if she can turn rocks into gold. Ah yes, make me rich, Fidelina :)
      You are a very dear lady and the world of passion, the world of magical possibilities, is better for having you and your kind, caring demeanour :) Thank you.
      Enchanting wishes, your way, Gary

  10. Hello Gary:
    How lovely it is to think of F and G living in wedded bliss at the bottom of your garden! We like to think that not even the endless rain has dampened their ardour and that their passion for all things fairylike and gnomelike continues unabated. Are there signs of the patter of tiny fairy-gnome feet yet?

    1. Greetings Jane and Lance,
      It is lovely that Fidelina and Geoffrey live in sweet wedded harmony within my magical garden. The rain has not dampened their spirits. Although they are spending a lot more time under the cover of rather large mushrooms.
      This is an ongoing series and the label 'wee folks' beside the title of this posting, if clicked upon, takes you, if you so desire, to the previous tales of wonder. They have a wee one and his name is 'Einahalk' If you wish to see their beautiful son, you can find it here :

    I don't remember that wedding mr klahnie. My invitation must have got lost in the post. Was there booze available? I might never be able to forgive myself.
    I raise my glass to the happy couple; Cheers!

    1. Ah yes, it's the one and only, thank goodness, Sir Tom Eagerly,
      The wee folks were most puzzled why you didn't show up. Your invite was send direct to your mansion, via a fairy. You missed out on the booze. The goblins were goblin all the food and finished of the mushroom cider.
      They thank you for your bottoms up wishes. Cheers to you.

      And yes, 'Better Gnomes and Gardens' tried to offer them financial reward for the more private stuff. With their morals intact, Fidelina and Geoffrey, refused.

  19. Stud entered the room to see what the laughter was all about and I showed him the photo of the bride getting closer and closer to the altar. LOVED IT!! Did they register anywhere for gifts? And where do I send the Congratulations card?

    1. Hi lotta joy,
      I can imagine that "Stud" may have been a bit bewildered by the photos on your screen :) So glad you enjoyed this.
      They were on the gift registry of 'Wee*Mart' :) The congratulations card can be sent to 'The Magical Garden Sanctuary' in Leek, Staffordshire, England. Yes, Leek a place frequented by JRR Tolkien and evidently, inspiration for his "Middle-earth". And noting some of the locals, I can see why! :)
      May you have a magical, enchanting weekend.

      It is a intriguing idea to put the their adventures into a children's book of all ages. I believe that the enchantment of their sweet innocent love and their message of living in a non-judgemental world, works on many levels.

    Ah, we know Summer has come when the wee folks celebrate their anniversary. How wondrous, how enchanting their little world is, where no judgement is passed and stigma is an alien concept. If only life were more like this, my particularly hirsute pal.
    Very Best Wishes,

      Now David, make sure you get a nice smooth shave.

  24. Two years already? Wow, kewl. As long as it doesn't feel like 20 years. That wouldn't be good. But in the land of magic dreams and wishes, love abounds, eh? Of course. Why else live in the land of magic.

    Congratulations to the lovely couple. And best wishes to you and your family, Gary.

      Indeed, two years have past. I couldn't believe it. I thought only one year had past. I'm sure to the happy couple it seems more like two days.
      This land of magic has the underlying lesson of peace and harmony that humanity could learn from.

  31. Hi Nancy,
    A happy love story with the wedding of the summer, hopefully touches the hearts of those who view the photos.
    I have met Heather M. Gardner. In fact, I have left comments on her site and she is aware of the 'wee folks'. She has left a comment on one of my previous postings. I even invited "Stormy" to pay a visit on this posting. I think it would be an enchanting experience for Stormy and the wee folks :)

  32. My hearty congrats goes to Fidelina the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey the garden gnome on their 2nd wedding anniversary.

    'The wee folks wedding, a profound statement that true love conquers all.' It's a touching statement. I think true love does conquer all. And I would say that 95% of the time, love is all you need- along with the willingness to truly listen to your mate, spouse or significant other.

  33. Not long to go before the third anniversary now. I especially love the photo sequence of the bride walking down the aisle. I stopped believing in marriage when I saw so many unhappy ones, so every time someone asks me, I say no thank you. I've never stopped believing in magical unions though, and my sweetheart still asks me to marry him, esp. when he's had a little too much to drink, he even cries a bit when he tells me how much he loves me. We laugh about it the next day and just keep on loving each other, maybe one day I'll say yes to him. This marriage certainly looks like a magical union.

    1. Hi Ida,

      Firstly, I want to thank you very much for commenting on this archived posting. Indeed, on June 21, it will be the third anniversary of a marriage of ideals, of peace, of no stigma. I'm most heartened that you liked the photos and it was a magical union.

      I believe in the ethos of sincere marriage. Personally, after having my wife get pregnant by another man, while still married to me, has left me rather numb. Still life goes on. You two will do what is right in your hearts. All the very best, whatever you choose, to you both.

      Your friend,

      Gary
