With Wayne and I celebrating our 25th Wedding anniversary on the 30th Sept this year.. (WOW - lol).. I scrounged out my old wedding album.. you know the type.. those real 1980's sticky page horrible ones. lol. It's gone all yellow and was all falling apart. So I decided maybe it was time to get it into digital format for future safe keeping.
We didn't have much money in those days, my dad had just lost his business, Wayne's mom was just starting treatment for breast cancer, and his sister was undergoing treatment for a brain tumour. Did it stop us.. oh hell no. The families rallied around and all helped pull it together.
Hours were spent cutting out little table decorations with nail scissors in front of the TV at night, no dream dress (my moms friend made it but only to a pattern she knew) with me scouring second hand/thrift shops for sequins.. and as luck would have it I found a 1970's full sequined dress in mother of pearl white that we also sat pulling apart to use for my dress.. lol No fancy photographer (just a good friend from work) and a sports hall venue my dad could get for free....Mom made my wedding cake and my bridesmaids, sister in law and mothers did all the flowers for the church and tables...The girls and I sat at work hiding behind closed doors hoping the boss wouldn't work in while we made wall and roof decor.. lol. I also made all the flower girls little accessories. Not a dream wedding for many.....but oh man it was one of the happiest days of my life and a dream for us to be able to say "I Do" with all our family and friends present and together.
25 years on we are just as much in love... maybe even more so and Wayne is not only my husband he is also my best friend.
I hope you enjoy this new collection as much as I had fun creating it and remembering all the happiness that came from my special day ;-)
