As you know we were away for the weekend. A rarety these days but we managed to find a lovely little house, understated but with a wonderful view and not too far from town. Adam, Clare, my sweet friend Tina and I wondered down to Kiama about 2 hours south of Sydney ostensibly to have a relaxing weekend together and to attend a wedding.
The view was all we expected and some . . .
The natives were so friendly they ate out of our hands . . .
Our Christmas gifts came in handy . . had a bottle of Moet and a bottle of Verve!
We played silly games after Chicken and Capsicum Skewers and Rocket salad . . .
Adam le Chef, does Bono with Clare's sunnies . . .
The next day we wondered around Kiama which I'll post another time, before getting into the gladrags and frankly hanging in the shade until the big moment because it was hot! The ladies looked lovely . . .although their high heels made Clare look 'short'.
The groom and long, long time friend Adam don't look too fazed . . .
Well maybe just a bit, waiting for the girl to arrive, that's the groom on the extreme right .
And she did . . looking gorgeous and happy and confident . . .
Vows were self-written and made inside a heart of rose petals on the grassy knoll beyond Kennedy's beach. The Bridesmaids had a few difficulties with those shoes. Don't you just love the lady in the pink hat!
Then on to the reception after an hour in the pub . . . the motley crew and yes Kate the purple top worked fine . .
They even bottled their own Coopers Ale!
And that my friends, is a happy couple . . .doing a happy dance!
Breakfast on the beach the next day . . .
Billy tea of course . . .
Fruit, eggs, bacon and buns . . . totally lovely.
This was the wedding of my best friend in the world's son and was truly wonderful. The speeches were fantastic, the catering awesome, Markyboy did us credit with really nice wine and champagne and Tom and Belinda looked awesome and happy and relaxed. Totally wonderful weekend.
Apologies for minimal activity this week, it's filled with drama and distractions but hopefully I'll be back on the ball next week or over the weekend.
