10 years ago (on the 2nd of March) DH and I got married. It is still one of my most favourite days of my life. From the fun and excitement, to my Mum thinking she had an extra hour in her day and being late to arrive with my dress. It still feels like yesterday sometimes.
It was a family affair - Mum made my dress, 2 of the bridesmaids dresses and 2 of the flower girl dresses. We got married on the beach in front of DH's Nan's house. The reception was catered for by many family members bringing dishes. It was decorated by us and our families - we were blowing up balloons at lunchtime before going home to get ready.
Apparently there was even time for a game of pool before the ceremony :)
My Grandma made the cake. Two of my uncles did the photography (one in colour, one in black and white - you know, back when they used film for photos).
It wasn't expensive or flashy, just fun and simple, like us. If I did it again - I would do the same. We had all of our friends and family with us, and that is what made it so perfect.
So this year the gift was tin. And look what my hubby made just for me :)
A little colour bond tin shed all of my own. Hehe. It might fit a reel of cotton and a needle in it.
