My best friend, Shannon and her gorgeous man Al married yesterday in beautiful but freezing Tasmania. We have had the most wonderful time with their family and friends, decorating and celebrating their wedding. Shan and Al shared their first kiss at Richmond Bridge, Tasmania five years ago exactly, which is why they chose the 4th of August to exchange vows. Truly sentimental, the poignancy of the day was heightened at every step. The bouquets, handcrafted by the bridesmaid (me) and the groom, included handmade sugar hearts that Shan and Al made together last week; Al composed the music that Shan walked down the aisle to; and Shan recited some of the “80 things she loves about Al” as part of her vows, a list she wrote when they first began dating. This was a truly romantic celebration of love.
Here are some of my favourite happy snaps from the day.
David (my husband) and I took these cute happy snaps during the day, so I can’t wait to see what the professional comes up with! This was a beautiful wedding – filled with tears and laughter and love. Congratulations Shan and Al – may your lives together be as filled with love as the past few days.
