The wedding!

To have and to hold for ever and ever!!
A beautiful couple and they are making a beautiful life together.

My little sister's daughter was married last Saturday
and my other little sister and I along with our husbands did the wedding supper for about 130 people and it was hard work and a lot of rushing about but I think in the end the effort was worth the rewards of the smiles of delight from our other sister (mother of the bride), the bride and even our mother, who was simply "proud of her girls" I heard her say to someone.

we loved every moment of the afternoon.

The wedding couple and their two beautiful darling daughters.

Our sister and her husband and their daughter and son-in-law.
Sis you look lovely I was so proud of you!! what a wonderful day.

The bride (our niece) and her husband already have two beautiful daughters and so it was a wonderful family wedding and the happiness was everywhere. As the event unfolded on a beautiful Autumn day in Adelaide it was enough to make me want to hold onto the moments forever. So here are some of those moments that we share with you now and I will hold onto forever more.

A darling little girl who was so beautiful and like her mother (the bride) stunning! and a happy dear great niece.

And their second daughter is a beautiful little darling as well and looked so cute in her "wedding dress" as well.
The bride and my mum her grandmother mum is a great gran to many now and looks good don't you think!!

A beautiful bridal party with such as happy life ahead of them. they are truly blessed.

There will be more photos I am sure at the reception we were to get out of our working clothes and get out of the kitchen but it just never happened, there was so much to do. So the bride insisted she come into the kitchen and have her photo taken with her aunties and uncles as they were so busy.....so I guess that photo will show up soon (smiles)

This is my Tuesday ! a blessed family for of joy!!
