Happy Wedding Day - Photos and a Card

Hi again,

My partner and I went to a really lovely wedding yesterday. The bridal couple were former workmates of mine who had met at work and started a relationship which had this truly 'Happy Ending' or should I say 'Beginning' ?

It was a second marriage for both so it wasn't the traditional 'White Wedding' but it was actually one of the most colourful weddings I'd ever been too.

(The bride was the 'Hen' I mentioned on my blog a few posts ago when I told you about the 'Hen's Weekend Away' bus tour which I went on.)

The ceremony was held at the edge of a small lake in a Reserve close to the couple's home - the day was very sunny and warm and just perfect for the outdoor event.


The bride looked beautiful in a stunning red dress with matching jewellery and she carried a lovely bouquet of Gerberas, her favourite flowers.
There were quite a few laughs during the ceremony which was led by a Wedding Celebrant and also some tears as the emotional groom declared his vows before his bride and guests.

I think we all had a few tears in our eyes listening to his words - they were truly beautiful !



It was a real family affair as the bride was 'given away' by her two handsome sons who walked her down the path towards her waiting groom, his daughter was one of the bridesmaids (looking gorgeous in a yellow dress which looked fantastic against the colourful Gerberas) and his son and grandson were also in the bridal party.

Another lovely girl was the other bridesmaid and she was wearing a pretty dress in a lovely shade of Oyster Grey.


























(Sorry about this photo but the sun was directly in front of us and it was very hard to get a good shot of the bridal party from the top of the stairs where all the guests were standing.)

Below is a photo taken from the bridge on the other side of the lake - you can see the happy couple and attendants on the decking and all the guests on the stairs coming down from the Rotunda.

and lastly a photo of the stunning wedding cake -


The reception was held back at the couple's home and we all had a great night - I'm sure the happy couple had a wonderful day and will remember it for a long time to come.


Now, on to the card which I made for the occasion.

I used the SU Together Forever stamp set with Certainly Celery and Groovy Guava inks to stamp the floral image and the greeting.

I then punched out the floral image with the scallop circle punch and the greeting with the large oval punch and sponged around the edges with Certainly Celery ink.

I embossed the Whisper White card with my 'Birds & Swirls' Cuttlebug embossing folder then attached the stamped images with 3D foam dots and finished off the card with some lovely white and silver organza ribbon.

Here is a photo of the card I made - just a simple design but it worked out well.


And so, another weekend gone. Haven't done much today but relax and put up these two blogs.
Want to try to get some more cards done later tonight.

Please drop in again soon to see what my next creations will be.

Have a lovely day - see you all again soon!
