WARWICK AND AMANDA'S WEDDING

A massive photo share tonight as I share the photos from Warwick and Amanda's wedding.
It was a perfect day.... you couldn't have asked for better weather..
We had had three weeks of very cold weather, and then on this particular day the sun came out and the day was warm.
It was the first day in three weeks that I didn't need to wear a coat.... Good thing too as my outfit for the wedding was short sleeved.  I didn't even need a jacket at night.

Not only had it been cold, but we had had rain too for at least the week before the wedding,  and it rained again the day after the wedding..

I truly believe that God blessed them with the perfect day...

The ceremony was held in Bulimba in this beautiful little church..

Amanda and Warwick had their reception accross the river at St Eve's at Teneriffe...
Beautiful spot right on the river bank...
All we had to do was walk down the end of the street at Bulimba to catch the ferry here...

Catching the ferry to the reception..,
 We caught it right on Sunset.... it was just beautiful cruising on the river at night with all the city lights....

The service at the reception was amazing..
The staff were continually coming around and clearing the table and refilling our drinks..
We were so well looked after...

It was a great wedding...
We left at 10.30pm and it was still in full swing...
I missed the throwing of the bouquet, but we had a baby to get home too.
Willow was being babysat, and we knew the couple that were looking after her had an early start the following morning...
Ast it was we didn't get home until after 11pm.
It was a great wedding...
Very special... I have know Amanda since the day she was born..
We have been good friends with her parents since before they were married.
In fact, her mum got dressed at our place and had her wedding photos taken at our place when they got married....
Amanda has been good friends with Sarah all her life...
She feels like part of our family..
It was a real honor to celebrate her special day with Her and Warwick...

One more wedding to go..
We got an invitation to another wedding at the end of August....
Think that will be if for the year then..
Lots of weddings this year....

I stumbled across this while searching for an article Amanda told me about that was published a while ago and I couldn't find the web address. This came up in the google search results..

Karen - you have done a wonderful job capturing the day of their wedding. The pictures are beautiful and put together so nicely. Thoroughly enjoyed reading and reviewing about the special day :)
