The Wedding

Here is the bride and groom and the proud Dad (DH) and myself.
 
It was a beautiful day, weather was warm and sunny and the whole day was wonderful.
I think you can see how beautiful the bride was.. I don't know why DH has his eyes closed, but this was the only pic of us with the lovely couple.
 
The ceremony was lovely in the old church, (consecrated 1829) and the vicar quite a case, with funny asides to put us all at ease. All planned by my step daughter as just the sort of wedding she wanted.
 
The hotel was very nice and very organised so everything went according to plan
 
The food  was delicious  and everyone kept saying how very tasty it was.. we enjoyed the whole day and evening.. Dh and I danced a dance or two and I loved it all.
We left every one at 11 pm... dropped into bed and slept till 8:30 the next day, I was shattered. We had gone to the house where my step daughter lived before the ceremony so it was a long, long day!
And then suddenly it was all over.. the happy couple went to Sardinia for their honeymoon and we came home for a rest!!!  But it was a super day!
 
At the last minute on the Friday, before we left we realised we had no confetti, so I dashed into the garden and plucked some yellow rose petals, some marigold petals and some forget-me-nots heads and the scent from the roses was still powerful when we threw it over the married couple the next day!

How lovely you all look, I love the turquoise of their ties and your outfit is gorgeous Chris.
The homemade confetti sounds like a great idea, much better than the paper stuff.

Lovely photo of you all, Chris! I love your outfit and hubby looks very dapper and proud! The newlyweds look very happy and I'm sure their honeymoon will be spectacular. I like your idea of the flower petals for confetti, even if it was because you forgot about it. Best wishes to everyone!
