Hello! How extremely overdue my first post of 2015 is.
I had good intentions to post on January 1, truly I did. But I’ve been juggling the kids on holidays on top of my client work and writing projects, plus hosting visiting friends, regular day trips down the Coast to soak up the Aussie summer, a week in Melbourne, a birthday, and my son starting school.
I have lots of new recipes, work projects and travel experiences to share in upcoming blog posts but I wanted to kick off 2015 with some photos from a lovely outdoor wedding I recently attended.
The ceremony took place on a bright, sunny afternoon in the stunning grounds of Carclew in North Adelaide. How adorable are the flower girls and page boys in this photo? And I’m not just saying that because my niece and nephew are leading the way!
Following the ceremony, drinks and canapés were served on the lawns before guests were invited to take their seats.
The wedding speeches were full of loving anecdotes that provoked roars of laughter.
The groom’s hilarious speech — revealing his bride’s quirks, happy nature and non-stop energy — made me laugh and cry.
Guests were then served a plated entrée and family-style mains by seriously good-looking servers. I prefer family-style servings at weddings because I don’t want to have to choose between two options: I want to try everything!
The day was a bit of a family affair, with my brother’s family and in-laws all playing supporting roles.
It was a wonderful day. Weddings are usually joyful occasions but Missy and Andrew’s wedding was one of the nicest I’ve ever been to. Congratulations to the happy couple! xx
