Making me happy this week is ..... Weddings!!! And this wedding of my niece's was absolutely wonderful. I am so happy to see this gorgeous, perfect, happy couple finally marry and have the time of their lives at their wedding
My niece and my mother in law (her Grandmother) who made the beautiful wedding dress.
My niece and nephew looking absolutely stunning....
James blowing bubbles...
My husband who was actually at Bathurst for the weekend race... drove the 4 hour trip there in the morning and back (another 4 hours) much later that night after the wedding!!! He would have been so tired....but he wasn't going to miss the wedding.
Me and the boys...covering up all their injuries from the motorbike accident 2 days before....Aarrgghh!
How wonderful is this signpost? Made by the Brides step-dad..
There were so many wonderful things to take photos of...
The tables were beautifully set with old tin teapots and kettles filled with flowers. Fireplace ablaze...amazing wedding cake with cute exact replica figurines on the top...other family wedding photos set up near a book of messages from the guests...a bucket of dancing shoes (thongs) for later that night...a wonderful framed painting of a tree - which we all added a leaf to - by printing our finger and finger painting a leaf onto it in all different colours.. I just loved that!
Everyone had their photo taken with frames like this and added a written message to the couple My boys wrote "Grow old, grey and more in love"... All the photos were shown to the couple on a big screen after the speeches.
The reception was held nearby in a beautiful hall next to the cricket oval. So while the wedding party were having their photos taken, we were able to play cricket, bowls, and croquet.
It really was a wonderful wedding... and such a happy, fun wedding too..This couple could not wait to get married ... and this photo just sums up how happy and excited they were to tie the knot....
I don't normally put up photos unless I've taken them, but this photo (I'm sorry, but I don't know who took it) just makes me smile so much... I absolutely love it... this photo captures the pure happiness and joy of the lovely couple proudly displaying their newly signed Marriage Certificate.
I'm so glad I got to be a part of their celebrations and their wonderful day.
And what a beautiful place to go to for the ceremony as well... the gorgeous Hunter Valley.
I am still smiling, remembering the day!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend... and Happy Monday!!!
