Family & Friends

After the family had all feasted on their six course meal we rolled ourselves outside to have photos taken before starting the dancing. We'd arranged for hog roast buffet to be served for the evening guests and i'm told it was very very good but personally, I couldn't eat another morsel after the formal dinner! The sun was causing some problems for our photographer but every time a cloud came over we all smiled and got the photos taken. These are a mixture of family and friend shots...

Our reception pt.1 (the feasting part!)

The country club we held our reception at was so beautiful and the staff were brilliant. The maitre d' organised his staff and our guests in such a low-key professional way that we didn't really notice anything going wrong. We kept the first part of the reception for just family and friends joined for the second part. The dining room was gorgeous and the food was so great I think I ate a little too much for a corseted bride!

Festive loungewear

Does anybody else come home from work, realise they have a night in and reach for the comfy PJs instead of actual clothes? It can't just be me surely? For those of you who are done with adulting for the day at 6pm, here are my best picks of festive PJs this season:

Our ceremony

It went by in a flash. Seriously. One second I was arriving outside the Church and the next it was time to walk down the aisle and everything kept rolling along and I felt swept along on the tide. It was a great feeling though. After all of the months of planning and stressing over details, the day itself seemed to be taking care of itself (obviously with a lot help from family and friends!). It was such an intimate ceremony which was conducted by my parent's friend (who is a minister and has known me since I was a baby). I walked down the aisle on my daddy's arm to Yiruma 'River Flows in You' and we signed the register to Einaudi 'I Giorni' - perfection.

How cute are my flower girls?!

You may kiss your bride!

Signed, sealed, delivered

Leaving the Church an hour later as man and wife!
