Tired but happy

Well folks, I am now officially married. Everything went very well on the day, and at the Chinese banquet the day after. I wasn't concerned about the weather because I decided well in advance of the wedding that as weather is the one thing none of us can control, I was not going to stress about it. That said, it was a sunny day and we were able to have the ceremony outside, which really helped as the indoor part of our wedding venue was small.

One of the stand-out moments for me (apart from the whole marrying-the-guy-I-love bit which was incredible) was that we had a friend of my mother's drive up from the States to play the harp at our ceremony, and at my request she played Robby Burns' 'My love is a red rose' while we were signing the marriage license. The surprise was that my father sang the song. I didn't expect that. Luckily they did that during the rehearsal so that I wasn't completely taken by surprise during the ceremony itself.

It was a small wedding so I got to talk with all my guests.

Like anyone notes, months of planning and over in a flash. Now onto the real challenge - marriage!

Kat: You have a new blog! Yay! Jumpy claps. And thanks for the wishes.

Torn: We were a tryin' but my body is not cooperating. Maybe now that we're married god will sanctify it?

Matt: Soon it will be you! And ya got a good one.

Ponita: Thanks! It was my ideal

IDV: And in a wedding of 30, we had 2 members from the UK. My beloved Scotland of course, but still, your island was represented.

Lesley: Thanks!

jkg: I deliberately avoided blogging about it much - not surprising you missed it. In the frustrations leading up, I didn't want to complain about all of our nearest and dearest

Rox: Thanks Rox! You can give me tips on making a marriage last.

CD: You and the missus are welcome to come and stay with us anytime at all, and have a Canadian wedding while you're here.

Eros: Thanks sweetie! CL and all the pets and I are happy in our home
