A VERY SPECIAL OCCASION


Phew! We've just returned from Sydney where we spent a week to celebrate the marriage of our son Brett to his lovely partner, Sarah.


(The view from our apartment of Hyde Park)

The wedding took place in the courtyard of the Mint, the oldest building in Sydney.



It was a lovely occasion with the weather being very kind - not too hot or cold, morning showers clearing so that the outdoor ceremony could take place as planned in the late afternoon.



The bride looked absolutely stunning.
So did the groom !



With both of them around 6 foot they made a very handsome couple don't you think ?




Mum and Dad made the trip down from Hervey Bay with my brother and his partner making the trip possible for them.





It was a lovely, happy family occasion.



The celebrations continued the next morning with a lovely ( guilty) brunch in the Sydney Botanic Gardens. 





Yum !!!

Back home now and back to the diet !

Cheers.

    1. Yes Lorrie the dress was superb. Such a shame we only get to wear them for a few hours isn't it ?

  7. Lovely news! One of life's special milestones - not just for the married couple but for their nearest and dearest too. A bride needs something borrowed and something blue. With your stylish wedding outfit she got the blue but what about the borrowed?

  9. Hello Helsie, I had a browse of the wedding pics and Sydney. The weather looks very British summer, not too too too too hot, just too hot. We have a Hyde Park in London too of course and that confused me at first. Good to meet you, Anna from across the world
