Wedding: The Ceremony

After the drama of nick beig sick we pushed the wedding ceremony back to 4pm. We were hoping it would be cooler and had our fingers crossed for a little cloud cover. We were lucky, just before the ceremony we got some cloud cover, which vanished again for photos. It allowed us to get some very dramatic cloud pictures looking out towards the sea though. I'll show them tomorrow.

The ceremony was everything I could have dreamed off and more. I was very determined not to cry, and I made it through the whole day with out tears. I go very red and blotchy when I tear up even a little...not a good look for a bride.

Anyway on to what everyone wants to!

The boys waiting by the Wedding Arch. Nick and his older brother Tim
My Bridesmaid Christine. Apparently I made her wear a nice dress, so she's still talking to me!
Everyone turning to look at who's coming...Me.
My lovely younger brother walking me down the isle...beach.
Nick still a bit sniffly. My dad and the marriage celebrant jointly taking the ceremony. She was very excited to be taking a wedding with a minister.
I still kissed him, even though he was sniffly... I showed my kids a few photos. The girls were "ooooo kiss!" and the boys "ewwwwww is gone yet?"
I just liked this picture of Tim giving me a hug.
Anyway I couldn't have asked for a more idyllic setting for a wedding. It was amazing. The archway was beautiful and smelt divine. The sand was golden, the sky was blue and the waves were in the background. My closest family and friends were there. In short it was amazing...oh and I married my best friend.


    the "i maried my best friend" part was completly adorable!
    many prayers, & love
