The BIG Day (lots of photos)

A few photos from a very tired but oh so happy Mum.

Peta and her wonderful apprentices. I learned how to wire flowers and decorate banisters.



A finished area.

Elizabeth had her heart set on having a cheese table. Peta made it look spectacular.


Peta also decorated all the tables. Elizabeth made jars of Chipotle Chutney and Tomato Relish as wedding favours.

The "official table" for signing the register. Elizabeth and Matt asked their Mums to be their witnesses as there were no wedding attendants. Patti and I were thrilled.



The happy couple arriving for the ceremony. No walking down the aisle. Matt was already downstairs mingling with the guests; when Elizabeth was ready Jenni, Elizabeth and I walked downstairs, Elizabeth put on her shoes and the ceremony began.


Michael and Jenni reading a poem.


Matt's sister Samantha read a poem about the meaning of wedding rings.


The newly married couple.



The shoes: 6" high, no wonder she didn't want to walk down the stairs in them.


Love this photo.


The happy groom.


Jenni, John and Joanne, John's sister.


Jenni, my friend Lynell and Peta.


Mum


Michael

With Patti and John.


Elizabeth and Diann


With Barbara, Lynell and Diann


The wedding cakes: Devil's Food Cake (made by me); Guinness Cake (made by Elizabeth) and Red Velvet Cake (made by Patti).


I'll re-load the photos once they're on the computer so they should be clearer and I'll make an album on Facebook.
