At 5.30pm we set off for the Queen Victoria Building, where the wedding was to be held in the Tea Rooms.
Mel (the bride) was just radiant as she walked down the aisle. I loved her dress and it was just what I’d pictured her wearing.
The wedding service was beautiful. They had written the vows themselves which made it extra special. And I just love this photo of my cousin Chris – he just looks sooo happy (as you should do on your wedding day).
After the ceremony we chatted with family while enjoying some canape’s. Christy had fun blowing bubbles.
Then it was time to be seated at our table. Unfortunately we weren’t with my parents, or anyone that we knew well, but I do understand how difficult table seating can be for events like this. We still had a great time. The table was beautifully set.
My meals comprised a vegetable salad for entree – it was nice, but cold, and I didn’t eat much as I wanted to leave room for the main course. So glad I did becuase my main course – a corn rissoto – was to die for.
Here’s a photo of us at the table.
And one of my Mum & Dad… we never did get one taken together.
After speeches and cutting of the cake, there was dancing. Later Kevin told me was thinking about asking me to dance (we haven’t danced since our own wedding) but he never did. Not sure if I would have wanted to anyway as I still have issues with people watching me. Maybe next time I’ll give it a go.
The cake is apparently a French wedding cake and it was served as desert – oh, so delicious.
Amy managed to miss a good part of the wedding, having fallen asleep shortly after her dinner was eaten. My girl is definitely no party animal.
Christy started to complain of being tired around 10.30pm so we said our goodbyes and were lucky enough to get a photo with Chris and Mel before we left. I also got one with my beautiful cousin, Tara.
Then it was a short walk back to our apartment where the girls fell into bed. I had a cup of tea and read for a little before it was lights out for me as well. It was a fantastic wedding and certainly a night we will remember for a long time.
