31 years ago tomorrow, I got married. It was an unbelievably hot day, and I remember that my makeup melted twice before the ceremony, which was in the morning. The reception was in my parents' garden, and it was a stunning day. There is a photo in my woman to woman post for Tuesday 13th March. A lifetime ago. My dress was made of French lace, by the same designer who made my mother's wedding dress, and I remember how wonderful it felt to have a train. The official photos are all very stilted in a way, but my sister's friend took informal photos as a wedding gift, and there is a wonderful photo of me running along the side of the pool,with my dress billowing out behind me. I must find it to show you. It is somewhere in the black hole of the study, I think. Auntie Myra made the wedding cake, and Mum and her friends did the flowers on the tables, and with all the sunshades up, the garden was spectacular. My uncle had spent weeks getting it all perfect for the day.I was 21 and Geoff had just turned 33. It was the perfect, casual, informal reception, and in the end, Dad suggested we leave as they were running out of food and drink..... this was after morning tea, a wonderful buffet lunch, afternoon tea, and evening drinks. No-one wanted to leave. Sometimes it seems as though it was just yesterday. And sometimes a million years ago.
When Andrew and Ann got married in 2003, their wedding was just as wonderful, and the reception was also in a garden, but this one was in Switzerland. I will post about this soon. It was a magical time.
