BOY I AM STILL EXHAUSTED! ANYONE WHO HAS HAD CHILDREN GET MARRIED WILL KNOW WHAT I MEAN. IT’S NOT JUST THE DAY BUT THE LEAD UP AND ALL THE FLUFFING AROUND..IT COMPOUNDS AND DAYS AFTER YOU STILL FIND YOURSELF TIRED!

HAVING SAID THIS …WHAT A DAY..THE WEATHER FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR WAS A SHOCKER!! THE DAY BEFORE CLOUDSΒ  AND DRIZZLEΒ  SO I MADE THE MOST OF THE BREAKS IN THE WEATHER TO TAKE SOME PICS.

WE WERE AT A LOVELY PLACE CALLED THE HARVEST FARM AND PHIL AND I ,CHRIS (THE GROOM) BRAD OUR ELDEST SON AND MICHAEL (CHRISTOPHERS TWIN BROTHER) AND HIS GIRLFRIEND ALL STAYED IN THE FRONT COTTAGE… BRAD’S WIFE SARAH WAS AT THEIR PLACE ON KITTY DUTY AND RHIANNON OUR DAUGHTER AND HER BOYFRIEND WERE ARRIVING ON THE DAY. THE BACK COTTAGE AMBER THE BRIDE TO BE AND HER SISTER SARAH WERE STAYING.

SO THE MEN GOT BUSY..ALL CHAIRS WERE BOUGHT IN TO THE BACK COTTAGE AND ROSE PETALS STREWN ON THE FLOOR..THE BRIDES MUM AND I HAD A TIME TRYING TO CONVINCE HER THAT IS WAS OK..POOR KID WAS INCONSOLABLE..

THE PLAN HAD ALWAYS BEEN TO MARRY UNDER THE BIG OAK TREE..THE WHOLE PLACE WAS CHOSEN FOR THIS REASON..AND NOW IT WAS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN..

  1. I’m sorry to hear about the bad weather. When my wife and I got married we had to move the ceremony inside because of an approaching hurricane. The hurricane then changed direction and met us almost 200 miles away in St. Augustine the next day for our honeymoon. None of that mattered. We had a great time and in the end, it is the marriage that is important, not the wedding.

  2. Oh dearie me……well it was a beautiful setting inside or outside….the one thing about planning an outdoor wedding though is never knowing FOR SURE if the weather will cooperate. Sounds like it was gorgeous anyway and no doubt it’s that “I do” moment which will always be remembered – not the clouds and rain!

  3. That’s so beautiful, even when the weather was not the best. Maybe the thunder& lightning was a firework to celebrate this day. btw: do you have a clue why all moms get watery eyes only when they read the word wedding?

  4. Drats with the darn weather. Sounds like our weather. I am sure despite it the ceremony was lovely in the cottage. Maybe they can have a blessing some other time. Have a terrific Tuesday.

  5. Beautiful – BEAUTIFUL pictures my friend. It sounds like a wonderful wedding. The day was full of love and that’s all that matters. Mom/dad had thunder and lightening on their wedding day as well. Someone at their wedding looked up the meaning of that and told them it was a sign of abundance and a long and happy marriage! That is great news πŸ™‚ Happy future to the Mr and Mrs with years of happy bliss. XOXO – Bacon

  9. Your pictures are beautiful. When a friend of mine got married the minister told her that “your wedding will be perfect because you and the person that you love are getting married.” “Everything that happens that is unplanned will become part of your story.” It is true. Judy
