My sister in law and her Welsh partner were married at the end of last month. I'd done the table names, place names, and today the table plan. Davies? Check. Evans? Check. Jones? Check, check, check. Yes - a wedding in Wales alright!
I am very grateful to a Welsh speaking friend who checked the welsh tree names for me. Although they'd come from a reputable Welsh university website, it seems that the word given for the Ash tree (LLUDW) was in fact the word for cigarette ash, ash in a bonfire, even ash after a cremation - not quite the perfect word for a wedding table! The correct word, for those of you interested, is ONNEN.
