So … I got married a few months ago now, but I was sooooooo happy to be (mostly) free of wedding-related tasks that I’ve hardly visited Weddingbee for a long time! But I missed y’all and have been reading again lately.
Our wedding was really lovely, the weather was perfect, and everything more or less went to plan – though I did manage to forget my bouquet! Crazy huh! I was about to walk down the aisle with Dad and suddenly realised there was nothing in my hands … oh well. I wouldn’t be me if I let this ‘being organised and onto it’ thing go too far 😉
Anyway, I wanted to share some pics of the day. Well, a lot of the pics, because they tell the story of the day.
And two hilarious photos that I love – my moment of ‘eeeek!’:
And Mr Velveteen’s moment of ‘OMG’ (he says he doesn’t remember feeling so desperate, but I think this photo says it all 😛 )
**Ok – editing to add that Mr V just walked in and read my caption and indignantly insisted that he posed for that, he wasn’t that anxious at all! Regardless, we both love this photo! **

More – the ceremony:
I cried through my vows! I couldn’t believe it. I was so sure that Mr V would cry (he gets sentimental) and that I would not, but the reverse was true. Lucky I had bullet-proof make-up!
My parents looking on:
After we’d signed the license thing, and our witnesses were signing, I asked Mr V for a quick make-up check (was a bit worried after all the tears), so he helped soak up tear-tracks for me.
Note the ‘L’ (learners) plates we’re carrying! Mr V’s aunt gave them to us right after the ceremony:
I love this photo because it is of my mum (in the middle), my dad and his partner. It means a lot to me that they get on and are fine together (danced together at the wedding etc).

A few more, for anyone who’s wading through them 🙂
We went to a local park (anyone who lives here will recognise it in the next few photos!), and there’s these big seating terraces above the cricket ground. So we tramped up the stairs and communicated with our photographer (who was on the far side of the huge cricket grounds) by calling each other on our cellphones. There was even a cricket game going on at the time! Thankfully noone was sitting on ‘our’ side. This looks amazing in full-size but you’ll just have to imagine it as I resized these tiny!
A little closer (I love the trees at the top).
One of our favourites – simple, but it’s us and we’re happy. This photo made me realise that the artistic photos that are so common now (and which we got our share of) aren’t the most important ones. I wish I’d gotten more photos with family and friends (I haven’t posted those here).
We also have this one printed on canvas:
The boys – look at that backdrop! It looks painted, it’s so perfect and beautiful. But we went to the gardens where Mr V proposed (different location to the photos above), and this is just what the trees and pasture looks like 🙂

Last lot of photos, and there’s not many!
The beautiful cake that my aunty made. It was so gorgeous, she was so good to do it (and then transport it 3 hours to the wedding!).

Yeah, more pictures. Maybe one with you in your dress so we can see more details. I love the gray vests and purple ties, the cake looked gorgeous, pic with your hubby getting the tears is priceless, and I feel the same way about artistic shots. It’s like “smile, it’s your wedding day!”
