The "I DO's" of two families uniting

What a weekend, on Saturday the 28-01-2017 my younger brother Ashley got married to the girl of his dreams, Ms Harriet...

It was a cloudless blue sky day and the water was clear as diamonds while the Groom and the groomsman waited on the beach under the sun shining like a crystal ball above we all wearing a light navy blue tailored suit, sunnies on having a laugh water bottles in hands, a half an hour goes bye before we see a white laced umbrella rising from the sand dunes my brother turns to face us while we all watch the bridesmaids wearing a beautiful light apricot dress smiling a giggling while continuing their walk towards the groom to stand in a semi-circle line like the crest of a moon with the groomsmen for the Groom’s first sight of his beautiful Bride, what a sight it was, the bride shining in white, long blonde hair with gems sparkling thought-out a veil as long as the dress free flowing in the air as light as feathers…

My brother shaking with happiness as he turns around unable to retain his blushes and smiling fiercely as his jaw drops to the ground saying wow absolutely stunning and he softly pressed his lips against hers in a passionate kiss of happiness... The bridesmaids wiping tears of joy from their eyes and the parents glowing with the same joy start laughing, as the photographers and the videographers do their work in capturing the special moments of their day... The first sight settling the nerves of what’s yet is to come the best day in history of two families it was a quick run to the van for air-con, the photographers madly clicking away for some fantastic images as we jump into air-con our shirts wetter than the ocean itself the girls a couple tan shades darker than that first stepped on the beach. After the many water bottles handed around it was off to the famous Gull’s rock for a photoshoot of the couple, with the cliff face below us the ocean bed meeting the waves and blues sky above it was only right the shoot would be amazing. The Groomsmen, bridesmaids and parents all stood a pond the hill watching the drone flying around, the photographers like a whirlwind of leave blowing in the air captures veil and hair flying, kisses in the sparkling sun, silence dancing of the couple and smiles and joys from everyone…

Then it was time, time to head to Paxton’s winery in McLaren Vale in South Australia, to officially unit the couple, while the boys walk around doing last minute touches of the seating arrangements and ceremony, allowing the girls to getting ready worry free, the cold coronas and lime were breaking the thrust for the guys and champagne bubbles creating a laugher atmosphere backdrop as the girls are preparing the lipstick and eye liner for the walk down the aisle…

4:30pm the Grooms and groomsmen move to the arch, the guests all gathered around where the white rose pedals laid on the ground to form a footpath toward the archway covered in flowers for the bride and groom to hold hands for the last time before than are announced as Husband and wife...

The wedding sounds start to flow thru the air the Bride steps out and everyone turns in amazement of an angel walking towards them followed by her 5 beautiful bridesmaids. The wedding celebrant starts to fill the air with her voice welcoming everyone here not to long after Ashley voice has started to take over declaring his love to his fiance thru his vows, there wasn’t a dry eye in the crow, the best man in shock of what his brother has just said the smiles and the pulsing hearts of every romantic could be heard like bells ringing in the stables miles away, Harriet stood still, holding back the tears under breath “how can anyone top that” she takes a deep breath there it was a short from the heart vow left her lips them both equally in love of each other, right there It was up to the best man to hand the rings so they can be placed on the finger of each the one with the vein line straight to the heart once they both look at each other the whispers of “I DO” have been wittiness the celebrant lets the words echo for all to her for an entirety “I now pronounce you Husband and Wife” a cheer and claps of happiness from all the guest leave the vineyard for all the neighbors to hear the celebrations as the couple walk down the footpath made of rose pedals with more falling down from the skies above as people throwing handfuls of pedals high in the sky letting them rain a pond the couple as they walk path…

Now the fun starts, the celebration the couple have been waiting for ever since Ashley got on his knee and ask if Harriet would take his hand in marriage, It was a great night, fine food, great speeches, dancing and of course drinking not one head woke up without a hangover or a smile permanently left on their facet for the best evening to start of a beautiful marriage and the start of 2017...

Congratulation Ash & Harriet...
