What is more wonderful than a family wedding?
It brings together family and friends for the joy of celebrating the love between two people.
Today it is Rob and Jordan we are celebrating. Such a beautiful couple who have been together for 8 years. We have followed their love around the world and today witnessed their love in a beautiful wedding.
My heart is full.
The wedding was planned from New York and it was stunning. No fuss but thoughtfulness went into their decisions. No big wedding party. Just their two brothers Peter and Joseph as witnesses.
It was just them up on the altar with eyes just for each other.
Jordan looked stunning in an elegant dress with a stunning back embossed with jewels.
On the shoulder of her dress she pinned an antique diamond and opal brooch which belonged to Rob’s Grandma Betty.
Notice the little diamond opal brooch. Borrowed. It’s was Steve mother Betty’s. Such memories.
We gathered outside in the warm sun. It was the perfect afternoon.
Pete and El looking happy.
My two sons are perfectly matched with their lovely wives.
Then it was a walk down the street to the Historical Museum. The setting simple and stunning. What an afternoon.
By the time we were seated the afternoon sun warmed us. It was perfect.
The food began. Lots of finger food. Then family shared plates. So pretty to look at and oh so tasty.
So many of Robs friends young and old had travelled across from all parts of Australia , the US, London, Spain, Belgium , Switzerland to celebrate with him. The family – aunties and cousins. It’s magic.
A late but wonderful night was had by all. The drinks flowed , the dancing continued, the photo booth and the laughter was infectious.
The bride was exhausted and had to be carried home.
