Inspired to share…wedding photos

I have been inspired by restlessjo, a wonderful blogger of many beautiful places and things, to share my wedding photos. Jo was reminiscing about her wedding day and expressed a desire to see the photographs from the weddings of other bloggers, I’ve always loved weddings and am happy to oblige Jo in the hope that maybe the sharing will be contagious šŸ™‚

We had been together about 15 years before getting married on New Year’s Eve in 2007, it was quite a casual affair and more of a party with family and friends than a traditional, formal wedding. My Nanna was disappointed that we didn’t get married in a church, however my father told her that getting married outdoors meant that we were closer to God and that was the end of that discussion. In the weeks prior we had constant rain, thankfully the sun came out for our ceremony and the weather was unusually mild for an Australian summer making it the perfect day for a wedding.

Thank you Jo for inspiring this post and for causing me to reminisce about a very special moment in my life.

    Oh these are gorgeous! All that blue sky and happy faces. I love the line about being closer to God outdoors (it may well be true). Thanks so much Sam for following up on this, and the kind words. It’s great.

      Thank you, it was so much fun and our bridal party was full of our childhood friends which made it even more special. I truly hope that more share their special day, it was a wonderful idea of yours šŸ™‚

      It had been a while since I had last looked at the photos, certainly brought back some happy memories of the day and I’m so glad that you enjoyed them – makes a nice change from travel and dog photos šŸ™‚

    Wow – I love the one with the flower petals and the ocean in the background. Really beautiful.

      That is one of my favourites too and the ocean on a clear day makes a spectacular backdrop šŸ™‚
