Waiting while train and dress rearranged



I must point out the lovely Phillip seen over on the far right next to Fiona( his girlfriend and a bridesmaid), Phillip, my hero who assisted me over the uneven and wet sloping path, when Paul was nowhere to be found, he cast off poor Fiona,( who did also offer his help,when I paused in front of them to look back for the missing husband) and Phillip allowed me to clasp his arm and stagger in my new , by now, pinching heels down the path, safely , therefore saving me from tumbling head first into wet shrubs or a trip to A&E from head first onto the brick path !

Kim , me and Gill

Tom, Paul and Tony

  6. your daughter looks stunning .....looks like you all had a wonderful day.....and well done for finding the perfect purple coat :) xxxx

  7. Very, very lovely Dee! Your daughter is very beautiful and what a stunning dress. She looks like an angel! I love your purple outfit and I do remember that is your favorite color! What a perfect day! :) xxx

  8. How beautiful Courtney looks, What a truly fabulous asnd perfectly fitting dress and with the addition of it's sweet little cover-up bolero for the Church ceremony. Love how the train evolves from almost nowhere and then fans out magnificently for the up and down the ailse walks and the before and after photos.

    Being very interested in colours I was thrilled to see the white and shades of purple themed overall picture. Congratulations too Denise on being able to get the perfect toning coloured outfit for you which just completed THE whole look superbly!

    I was very impressed with the bouquets with the purple and white good luck heathers. (I'm loving this new popular bunched straight style as opposed to the longer more old-fashioned trailing varieties.)

    Was disappointed though to see that my prayers weren't fully answered and that you must have had some rain down there as with it being the perfect Autumnal day up here I had thought that you too were enjoying it down there as well.....but at least you were able to have these lovely outdoor photos taken and from which it certainly looks to have been a truly wonderful day.

    Again my best wishes to Courtney and Mike for a long and very happy life together.

    PS. Search as hard as I could I was't able to spot THAT LUCAS in amongst the guests ...though perhaps it was just as well!
    PPS. Gill's looking very smart!

  9. Wonderful photos - thank you for showing them.
    It looks and sounds like you all had a fantastic day.
    Congratulations to the Bride and Groom, wishing them many happy years together.

  10. Thank you all for your kind words. We are very proud of Courtney and thought she looked beautiful in her wonderful dress. We all had a fabulous time and have lots of lovely memories to look back on.
    I will pass your good wishes on, cannot quite believe it's all over and next up is Christmas!!
    love Dee xxx
