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

Such a handsome pair J

"Our Mums"
(and the chairs I decorated) J

Waiting and getting a tad nervous...

The arrival in my Dad's 1954 Mark 1 Ford Zephyr

Dad was the driver...

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
