Over at Eli’s Lids there is a wedding carnival this week and I have decided to join in the fun.
Finally I came across Flash Back Friday at My Tiny Kingdom, so have joined in there too.
Just how many birds CAN I kill with one stone!
Apologies for the quality of the photos, all photos taken of the photos still in the albums, as my scanner is not co-operating.
It was a very hot (for Northern Ireland) sunny friday in June, 1992.
First my Mum and I the morning of the wedding, trying to look relaxed and pretending there isn’t a photographer in the room, but not managing very well! We are sitting in the upstairs living room of my parents last house.
One of my favourite photos of my Dad and I, on the way into the church.
My bridesmaids and little flower girl. (They include my german childhood penpal, my now sister-in-law who introduced me to my dh-to-be, my youngest cousin, and the daughter of another cousin). My aunt made all the bridesmaids dresses.
The vows. The church is a Reformed Presbyterian Church – the interior is quite plain and simple, no stain glass windows etc, and the singing is unaccompanied Psalms (so no organ or piano). The congregation sang Psalm 100 as I walked down the aisle.
Coming out of the church (can you see the relief on both our faces!)
My brothers and my cousin at the reception – I love this photo with their sunglasses. The reception was at The Culloden Hotel, Cultra, Co Down.
I gave my flower girl a doll dressed in the same fabric as the bridesmaids dresses.
All the men in the wedding party, including best man, grooms man and 4 ushers. When one of my daughters recently saw this photo she asked “Is that the day you picked daddy to marry out of all those men?” !!!! (Like it was Pop Idol or something, and dh won!)
My Mum and Dad
My dh’s mum and dad, brother and sister – in – law. This is a very special photo as my mother-in-law has since passed away.
The cake cutting, the cake was baked by Mum and decorated by a cousin. Not sure where the 70’s hair on the groom came from for this photo, and the sleeves of my dress appear to have grown too!
Our “going-away” outfits. We drove to Dublin that night, to the Shelborne Hotel on St Stephens Green. The next day we flew to Florida for 2 weeks.
Thanks for joining me for this tour of both my wedding album and more informal pictures too.
Now for my photo of the day for Project 365.
Every weekday, at about 7am, I make the sandwiches for the kids packed lunches. Every day it seems to be ham sandwiches. The type of bread may change to rolls or wraps, but the filling is nearly always ham. They assure me they will NEVER bore of ham.
When my dh saw me taking photos of the sandwiches at 7am this morning he rolled his eyes, but then commented on the Depth of Field when he saw the images. Seems like you cannot avoid picking up the lingo even if you never have to take any photos!
