We decided not to hire a professional photographer, so I don’t have many wedding photographs. But please let me share these few with you. These were snapped by my nephew. The weather on my wedding day was truly dismal. If you look closer at this picture you can just about make out a raindrop splashing on the pavement. Regardless of the weather the day was lovely, made even more lovely by the attendance of family and some close friends.
Once upon a time, I would never ever have considered novelty figurines for any cake of mine, let alone my wedding cake. But with age, I have become much more comfortable in my skin, more laid back and able to laugh at myself.
My wedding dress, jewellery and bouquet were all gifts from my mother who was so glad that her daughter finally got wed. Mothers 'ay. If it wasn't for her, I probably would have just turned up in a skirt and blouse. I am also forever grateful to my nephews who made the day even more special for me, trying to make me laugh throughout, when the pressure of organising a wedding got too much. I will hold such memories dear.
