The Wedding Part 2

August 27, 2012 | Personal, Wedding

Well, I’m back with the second half of our wedding photos today, I hope you weren’t wedding’d out from the last lot!

These photos are all about the ceremony and reception. We held the ceremony at a little old railway station called Spring Bluff, on a beautifully green patch of lawn just metres away from the track. There was a train scheduled to go through the station 10 minutes into the ceremony (which had me sliiiightly worried), but the driver *bless his heart* instead stopped around the other side of the mountain until he was sure the ceremony would be over. What a nice guy! He then put on a show for us all by driving through and tooting his horn while we were all eating cake and chatting. Couldn’t have worked out better :)

After the ceremony, family photos, cutting the cake (we decided on cutting it early while people were hungry and enjoying a cup of tea), and more photos in a beautiful field with the setting sun, we headed back to my parent’s house for the reception (held in their backyard). Something I hadn’t expected though, was that our 80 guests had been waiting to welcome us, lining the path, armed with confetti they were all too happy to throw at us. It was honestly one of my most favourite parts of the day because it was a surprise from my Mum, and I had no idea it was coming. On a day that you plan for months and months, meticulously, down to every detail.. it was so special that there could still be some surprises!

Anyway, enough talking.. I’m sure you can get the idea from the photos :)
