The day was perfect, we had the wedding at a private club and stayed there too, my lovely husband got ready with his groomsmen in another part of the club to me. He had cute propeller cufflinks (he’s in the Airforce):
Meanwhile I got ready with my bridesmaid (matron?) and my little cousin as my junior. Here’s a pic of my bridesmaid pinning on my ‘something old’ which was given to my great grandmother by my ggf on her 21st birthday. There’s also a pic with my Mum (who walked me down the aisle.)
We had the ceremony on the lawn of the club, luckily it was a sunny 28 degrees celcius! We had a bit of a vintage/book theme (40s/50s). When we had our photos taken after the ceremony, guests had a surprise 50s rock’n’roll dance lesson (and drinks to loosen them up!)
The reception was upstairs at the club, there were flowers in teacups and teapots and a library card catalogue directed guests to their books/tables. We had a 3 course meal and then a quick change before the first dance to our fave 50s rock’n’roll band. Instead of doing a bouquet toss, I gave mine to my grandma during the speeches.
