I Love Autumn


With it's spectacular sunrises


And equally beautiful sunsets



The weather has been warm for this time of year. And there has been rain, so that is a good thing.  More rain is expected tomorrow J

Do you have a favourite season?

Getting Hitched - Part Two

We never paid a fancy photographer for our photos.

Instead we asked a few of our guests to take them.

I think they turned out well.

After the ceremony, we enjoyed champagne and cupcakes with a few other nibblies.





Then it was onto the family photos, 
here are just a few J







 This one was taken from the first level of the water tower...



 Then we made the climb to the second floor...


And down again,
not easy in high heels J


All of our family members.


With my dear Dad.




 The pic below was taken by our grandson.  He is ten years old, and we gave him a camera and were really surprised at the great photos he snapped. I think we may have a up and coming photographer in the family.



After taking photos at the Water Tower, 
we went to another lookout in the Arid Lands Botanical Garden.


 With Redbanks and the Railway Bridge in the background.


 Mount Brown behind us...




With our driver, my Dad J


One of my favorite pics

Next was down at the local wharf. 

The water was calm but because it was overcast the darkness was closing in sooner than we anticipated.






I love this one with my Dad in the background.





And finally the wedding cake.


Hubby chose the topper, and it caused quite a stir at the reception lol!



Well that's it for the wedding pics, I wont bore you with anymore lol.

Now I can get back to everyday living without the distraction of twenty four hour thinking about a wedding.

Getting Hitched - Part One

Tania and Phil were married 
on the 17th May 2014.

Here are some photos from our day.  The weather was overcast but warm J

The first six photos below are of our set up.
 It was just as we wanted it, something really simple, 
for our wedding day.

 Our chosen colour was sky blue and white (blue being both our favorite colour) with daisies for the flowers.

We used things that we had on hand, some we borrowed from others and we bought a few things too.


The signing table,
I decorated this myself J


Hubby made the signs J



From a distance


Father and Son 




Our boy J

I was escorted by our Son.


Getting ready for the walk down to 
my husband-to-be.


Our three daughter's joined us...


To walk down with me,
I was so proud J


The vows...






And finally the "kiss"


Signing the official papers with our witnesses,
my best friend and our Son.


I have over two thousand photos,
so this is just a sprinkling.

We didn't have an official photographer, just wedding guest with cameras.  We are very pleased indeed with all the photos J

I will be back to share some more J
