The Wedding

On July 15 family and friends gathered at the RACV Noosa Resort for the wedding of DsD1 and Dan. Most of us stayed at the resort and as luck would have it, the unit that DH and I shared with DD2, her partner and baby Holly, was just beside the grassed area where the ceremony would take place.

It was very comfortable accommodation with plenty of room...

I won't waffle on, I'll get straight on with sharing photos...😉
The wedding was at 2.30 but DH had to head over to the bride's unit at 12 for photos...dad, mum and 2 sisters.

The beautiful bride with her attendants...

Her proud parents walking her to the ceremony...


My girls and I...

Holly also had a special outfit...

Anthea was wearing a headband which I admired, but I think she rather coveted my fascinator, a bit of fun that I had bought at the urging of some friends...

At the reception, even Holly had a place card...how thoughtful was Aunty Meg! Don't know whether Holly will remember much about the wedding though!

DsD2 made the cake...she did a great job.

The next photo was taken while the function room was being set up. The centerpiece of each table featured a pile of books ( representing the bride's love of reading) and the replica kerosene lantern represented the groom's rural background.

During the 2 and 1/2 days we were at the resort, there was no shortage of people who wanted to nurse the baby!

And Anthea had a great time too!

On the Saturday morning, ( and again on Sunday morning) we were visited by 2 ducks, obviously a couple...I may have given them some bread 😉

A lot of planning by DsD1 went into this wedding and she can be justly proud of how well everything went; result? a wonderful weekend with lots of memories for all.

Such a happy day for all your family. It's wonderful you could spend several days together in one place and not just the few hours of the wedding and reception. Congratulation to the newly weds -- and to you, Maria, for choosing such a pretty hat, obviously well approved by the little girl set!
