Wow! So much planning and so much preparation, and the day has come and gone... now I pause every so often during the day and find myself smiling when I remember some little detail or happening on our wedding day.
But would you believe, I don't have a single photo to show you yet???!?!?! Our professional photographer estimated another 2 - 3 weeks before we get the cd of her photos - and the friend who took lots of photos at the reception has gone back to The Big Smoke with promises to send a dvd of photos as soon as possible.... but I promise to post photos as soon as they are in my hot little hands.
For now you will just have to picture this.... 2 little flower girls (age 7 and 4), in simple cream satin dresses, with some pink ribbon flowers, pink bows in their hair and carrying flower balls of pink and cream roses. Followed by 2 bridesmaids, wearing pale pink tea-length dresses in soft floating chiffon, with some roses silk-painted onto the skirts - carrying posies of burgundy symbidium orchids, pink tulips and soft pink roses. And then the bride, wearing a dress of cream satin, overlaid with soft tulle which is embroidered with flowers, and a scalloped lace edge around the short train. A simple ribbon and single gardenia in short hair. Carrying a spray of gardenias, hyacinth and cream roses attached to her father's prayer book.
Now, where can I possible wear that dress to again?? It and the veil hang in the cupboard now, calling out my name.... I am not going to have it cleaned and boxed away. It can show its somewhat grubby hem and slightly torn lace train with pride - as memories of the most wonderful day of our lives.
