Wedding Bells ....




One of the most significant days of your life is when your eldest gets married. On Friday our son Michael married his long, long time partner Donna. She's gorgeous, with a personality to match, Nola and I are so proud to have her as our Daughter in Law. He's not a bad lad either. They make a stunning couple.
A fabulous day was had by all the family and friends, over 100, at the marriage at Cottesloe Civic Centre and the reception in the Indiana Tea Rooms, which are a classic location above the Cottesloe Surf Club right on the beach.
We partied long into the warm night overlooking the Indian Ocean.
A magic day - I've got the headache to prove it.
Back to caricatures today ............. sigh !

.......... glad you put that bit in Ken !
It was a fabulous day, it was very informal, no 'sit downs', everyone had a ball - the location was pretty special too.
Cheers mate.

Hey Tel,

Congrats from over here in the states. Looks like they picked a perfect day to get married. I like your montage of the photos. You should of volunteered your services and drew the whole time. Na, just kidding. Where's your signing board of the 2???

Tel said...

Thanks Rick - I did the invites and the signing board - BUT - I wasn't happy with it so it doesn't get a berth here - everyone liked it, I didn't, that's me !!
Perfect day alright but this is Perth and you'd be really unlucky to have anything but perfect weather in March.
We've got the climate California thinks it has !!!
