I took myself off to get me hair done by Jamal and also make-up.
I then headed to the Ladbrooks Hall where the family had all come together and done the preparation for the New Years Eve party.
Unfortunately, Mum and Dad are no longer with us and David's. Mum Ivy, passed away, as well as Max the gorgeous lab. On the day they were all present, and it was very special to have my Dad give-me-away. It was very special as he slapped his knee "and said at last". So a lovely garden wedding and then Shiree White Photography took David and I off to Lincoln University for wedding photos.
After sharing in a catered meal, we all went to the Ladbrooks Hall for our New Years Eve party! Surprise we were married.
Thanks David for putting up with your determined and independent wife, who chose to keep her maiden name! (Reminds of the parents who took each of their surnames and made a new name for their daughters - creative thinking!) Together we created an amazing child who is growing up so quickly.
So I am off to marry two couples today - it wouldn't be natural for me to have the day off.
