Angels.

I really do believe in Angels.
On this day My Angel was born, so Happy Birthday Sweet Daughter J.

On Saturday 6th of November 2010, our Angel got married to her Sweetheart, of 10 years.
They celebrated in a Park in a simple ceremony tailored to their wishes and their circumstances.



Though Gom is ill, he was able to walk his daughter down the path to be married.

There was a photographer for the ceremony, but we had forgotten about 'Leaving Home'.

Our Angel Neighbours, Mr & Mrs NN came to the rescue, with a video, and also photos.




Here is the Bride leaving in her brother's rather special car.




Such a proud Groom. He had the biggest smile I have ever seen and it lasted all day.



 Here they are with their proud Son our SG. He looked so nice in his suit and he was so proud to read a poem with the Celebrant.
 Nerves were apparent, for our Daughter J.

It was a very unseasonably cool day. It had poured with rain for the preceding hours, but fined up in time to dry most of the worst wetness off the grass.


The "Mums" bore Witness, in front of their offspring.


A Sand Ceremony was performed, for the blending of the two families.




Their happiness warmed the cool Park.



And Meggie and Gom managed to stay quite late.

                                                           
We left the party just after this photo was taken. The rain had returned and Gom was very chilled.

Angels had ensured that the rain stayed away for the Park Ceremony, and the serving of the Buffet Meal. It later rained, but there was a Marquee, and a Jukebox and much fun was had by all.

I would like to thank my wonderful Angel Neighbours, Mr & Mrs NN and my Beloved Brother for these photos. The official ones wont be ready for some time, but I think these have captured the happiness very nicely.

Woo Hoo. We are having SG for a few days while the Newlyweds go off to Honeymoon in seclusion at a Resort. Our wedding gift to the Happy Couple.

This song was played before the wedding.

It's lovely to see the flow of generations in celebrations of major life events such as these, Meggie. Congratulations on becoming a mother-in-law.

These are beautiful pictures of a beautiful bride... Of course we know who she gets her good looks from...her mother!! I'm so happy for all of you. Enjoy GS as they enjoy their honeymoon. Keep GOM warm. *big smile*

Alice said...

They do look so happy. I love the simple outdoor weddings, although I like Church ones too, but there seems to be a relaxed, informality about the outdoor ones, and with so many beautiful places at which to be married, why not?

A good omen, I'm sure, that the weather stayed fine when it was needed.

I hope you and your husband are relaxing and reminiscing now.

Oh Meggie, I've had you on my mind lately, wondering if either or both of you are better, or hopefully no worse. I was so excited to see the photo of you and GOM... such a good picture......and your daughter--O Meggie, she is such a beautiful bride, and what a handsome family the three of them make. :) I love the "witnesses" photo. :) I too believe in Angels, and I'm so happy for all of you that the rain cleared away for the celebration. Hugs to you and Those Special Pups---and best wishes to your daughter and her family.

Oh Meggie - thanks for sharing the wedding with us! Your daughter is lovely. Wishing them every happiness. So glad GOM could participate. My daughter had the sand ceremony at her wedding too. A small vial of it rests on my bureau.

Enjoy that grandson!
