It's not everyday Jake Gyllenhaal's in Taunton... In Somerset for the wedding of Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford - and an Interlude

Jake Gyllenhaal is back in England! As we'd suspected, Jake didn't attend the LA Conservation Corps awards on Friday after all, due to its clash with the wedding of his good friends Marcus Mumford and Carey Mulligan. It's not often you spot a Hollywood movie star walking down the street in the West Country but this weekend Jake has been spotted in Boots chemist in the lovely town of Taunton, Somerset, and in the local pub. Mind you, after I saw Kate Winslett in one of my local country pubs the other week, I now kind of expect it.

According to US Weekly, Jake is not the only star to attend the glittery but lowkey event at a farm. Colin Firth and Sienna Miller were also there to throw confetti. Somerset is a beautiful and very historic part of England and I hope Jake enjoys it. Many congratulations to Marcus and Carey! Very sorry about the weather...

In the absence of wedding pics, I thought I'd use the opportunity to repost a couple of pictures I took of Carey when I saw her (and Peter) filming An Education in Oxford back in April 2008. Of course, in those days, very few people knew the name of Carey Mulligan.

WDW Interlude

Today, we went out on the motorbike to dodge the hail and the torrential rain to venture into the countryside. We took a peek at the windmill used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and went inside the church in the beautiful village of Ewelme where the granddaughter of Chaucer is buried in an unusual alabaster tomb. Other highlights included a lot of goats.

Ha,ha. Is it that bad?
Thanks for the post. That would be a nice surprise going to the chemists and find Jake before you. :o)
Nice interlude. So many nice things you visit. Thanks.

I wonder when Jake was invited to Marcus and Carrey wedding, cause one week ago media still were announcing him at LA Conservation Corps awards. Looks like it was top secret. It's nice to have Jake so close again :)
A wedding in the British farm - sounds very fine.
Nice interlude, Kate. Looks like you spent a great day on motorbike, despite your illness.

Not bad at all, Eureka :) Thank you!

I bet it was quite secret, Mermon, and Jake didn't know but sounds such a lovely event.

Thanks so much Carlotta - and that's a good saying!
