Getting back into the swing of things after a holiday is always hard, you spend time relaxing, doing what you want to do rather than what you have to do, enjoying later mornings and eating out then just as you're thinking, yes, I could get used to this, it's all over, normal service must be resumed. It hasn't helped that I've been plagued with a migraine and a touch of hay fever for the last couple of days, but I'm at the end of the first week back to normality and I'm sure by next week all will be fine :-)
So, the wedding, it all went well and without too many hitches, just a few niggles to do with how the table decorations were done, but that was just me I think, no one else noticed, and Joanne & Gavin's hotel room was on the small side, she had a bit of a rant about that, (how on earth were 1 bride, 3 bridesmaids a photographer and a hairdresser going to get in that room!!). All turned out ok because the hotel provided a second room on the wedding day for the bridesmaids to get ready.
Here are a few of my photos from the day.
A bit of fun with cake!

And for everyone to the reception
The brides and bridesmaids flowers were lovely, loved the
simplicity of the gypsyphilia for the bridesmaids
Everyone said what a lovely day it was and how much they enjoyed themselves, I was worried that the heat would be a problem but it was just perfect on the day, not too hot and with just a bit of a breeze.
It's a strange feeling to have a married daughter, to think that now she has a different name and is someone's wife, I never really gave much thought to that before the wedding, although she is 27 years old I suppose I realise now that she is all grown up, does that sound strange?
Gavin is a good lad, and I know he will look after her.
Until next time
