Ain't Love Grand?

At the weekend I went to a wedding.  A beautiful wedding (as all of them are) with lovely people who I have known for as long as I've been living here.  It was a whole weekend affair in the middle of the bush and we camped in our tent, whilst others chose the 'glamping' option of the onsite cabins.  The bridal suite was a shipping container all done up and the reception was held in a tin shed.  The surroundings suited the wedding theme 100%.  It was a 1920's bush dance themed event and people came dressed for the occasion.  

D'you want to see some pictures?

We drove down red dirt tracks to get there




The tin shed had wood burners on the go inside and there was plenty of bunting around the place.  We gathered in here just before the wedding

Where we were greeted by the bride and groom who led a procession to the little chapel

The little outdoor chapel with the accordion player greeted the bride and groom. He played the bridal waltz!  It was ever so romantic


And the deed was done, Hoorah!  I had a little tear ....      



People chatted whilst the papers were being signed
Beautiful sisters in beautiful outfits
All grace and decorum went out the window for the bouquet throwing skirmish
Then it was back down to the hall for the reception.  I'm afraid here is where my pictorial story gets a bit thin (I blame the Bulmers!)  It was lovely to be greeted by the smell of the fires as we came back towards the reception.  As well as the wood burners inside there was a fire area outside which was just lovely.  It was great to sit and get to know people around the fire; there were such a broad range of people there.


I made the bride a different kind of good luck charm that is nestled in there with a few horse shoes
Wanna see?

I used a few beach bits as they live by the ocean and surf, I cut a heart on the band saw and added a Buddha's head for good luck.  It all hung from a bangle that I sprayed white and covered with heart ribbon.  She loved it and I've gotta say I was rather taken with it too!
It was such a relaxed and informal wedding; and very true to the type of people that the bride and groom are.  There was so much lovely food and drink, really great company, new friends to be made and even the celebrant spun a bit of vinyl in the evening.  

I think this week will be full of early nights to recover though! :)
