Hello Everyone
Last weekend we had a very special family get together in Sydney celebrating the wedding of our beautiful daughter Beth to her partner Noah.
Leah and Stuart flew up on the Wednesday and along with Beth made the wedding cake. Stuart was chief bottle and cake tin washer. Josh very kindly offered to hold  up the bottom layer so in the photo you can see just how big it was. Layers of chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and raspberries between each layer, then kilo's of chocolate ganache all over it. Thin rectangles of dark chocolate standing upright all the way around the bottom layer to finish it.  The top layer was vanilla and lemon cake with white chocolate ganache.   Looked stunning and tasted amazing and big enough to feed an army. Lots left over and in the freezer for another day or two!

The weather was beautiful, lots of lovely late winter sun streaming in. Made taking photos a bit of a challenge, so will need to wait for the photographers as mine are a bit washed out.

Noah walked down the pier to the "the Eye of the Tiger" and really nailed it.
Beth chose to walk down the pier with her Dad and to the song to "feels like home" by Edwina Hayes and I must confess to a tear or two or three.

It was so nice meeting all of Noah's family and Beth & Noahs friends. A great time was had by everyone attending. Beth had booked a trio to play a bit of Jazz. Anna spent the night dancing with everyone there and having a great time.
I had done a page for August using Graphic 45 Time to Flourish collection, as part of my gratitude album and left the spaces for the photo's so I could add some from the wedding. I will now wait for the photos from David Henry who was amazing. His pre wedding photo's are stunning so the wedding ones will be amazing.

I love the sunflowers on this months page. They will look amazing with Beth's beautiful red hair and her cream vintage dress.
I now have one wonderful son and three wonderful sons-in-law. Each one of my sons in law are different but they all share a common link. They each love and respect one of my special daughters. I am so grateful the my girls have wonderful partners to share their lives with. Strong men who love them and cherish them - so blessed.
Will share more photo's of the wedding once I have some better ones.
thanks for looking
