5th Anniversary ALready

Five years ago this moment I was preparing for a wedding. NOT all that unusual given my profession but this one was different. You see this wedding I wasn't going to do much talking at. ANd yet despite that I was more of the focus of attention.

IT was a great day. Weather co-operated for outdoor pictures. Well almost, the wind was a little troublesome -- someone always had to have a hand behind the loved on to hold down the veil. The wedding was grand.

It was an evening wedding. Candles lined the sloping aisle of the church. THe choirs came out to honour the day (loved one had been in both the singing and the handbell choirs so they had to take part). Minister from l.o.'s childhood officiated and gave a wonderful message. WE recessed singing "You Shall Go Out with Joy".

THe rest of the day almost made up for the fight with the women's group about how to set up the hall for the post-service tea/reception. But that is another story.

HAppy 5th Anniversary love of my life!
