dress: missguided | shoes: daisy street
This is going to be one of my shorter posts but I couldn’t let Saturday’s beautiful wedding go by without sharing a few photos. I hope that the bride, Carlie, won’t mind me sharing these photographs here but she is currently off on the trip (honeymoon) of a lifetime across America so she has much more exciting things to think about!
For everyone attending the wedding, it was always going to be an emotional day. In the ten years I’ve known Carlie, she has battled (and overcome) two life threatening illnesses and coped with these, and their recurrences, with a characteristic bravery, humour and strength that few would find possible to match. I have never known anyone quite like her, and I have also never known a day so full of love and warmth – there certainly wasn’t a dry eye in the house when she walked down the aisle (have you seen how beautiful that dress is?). It warmed my heart so much to see a couple so utterly in love, and it was such a perfect day from start to finish, with wonderful speeches, a brilliant band in the evening, great food and lovely people. Definitely the perfect wedding. Oh, and a chocolate fountain – I need one of these in my house!
Thankfully the weather held off long enough for some outdoor photos and I braved getting my suede heels muddy to watch them getting showered with confetti. I had to include the last photo as she was just such a beautiful bride and I thought I’d end this post on that rather than me blowing bubbles and eyeing up the bread rolls on the table!
