Sorry for the long delay ladies, but here are some photos from my first wedding reception (the second one is in December)

I am remaining anonymous so these photos were chosen accordingly.

Enjoy, and thanks for looking! :))

All good threads should start with one thing: SHOES!

I had two pairs (I had an outfit change)

First up, some blue butterfly heels from Aruna Seth. They were quite comfortable, despite the heel.

the reception room, with a glass ceiling that maximised the summer sunshine until sunset at almost 10pm.

Well it's about darn time, missy! :lol: :nono: ;)) :appl:

Aside from that, you have pretty much rendered me speechless, rosetta. Everything (including and especially the bride!) was stunning. I am dying for one of those teeny little spherical cakes with the loops of royal icing...just to DIE for! I'm sure everything was quite tasty, too! :lickout:

Best wishes for a smooth second reception in December, and thanks for coming back to share! :appl:

YAY! I'm so happy to see your pics at last! The cake and the peony's and the teasing shots of the dresses! My favorite is the pics of both your shoes on the stairs! Can you post a few of you in each dress so we can see -- if you want to blank out your face I totally understand, but I'd love to see full on shots of you in those gorgeous dresses!

Thanks so much ladies!

I'm restricted to the iPad for the next 3 weeks so can't edit and post any more photos at the moment (sorry Gypsy!)

Your comments are so lovely, we worked hard on this wedding and it all paid off :sun:

I wish I could post photos of all our smiling guests and my husband tearing up at the alter, it's all those little things that make a wedding something special :love:

Rosetta, everything is sooooo verrry beautiful! What a lovely day. Everything looks fabulous! Did you do it all yourself, or did you have a wedding planner? I love love love the flowers. I always think it is the flowers that really add that special touch. It is the one thing I wouldn't skimp on, although I know a lot of brides on a budget do. The cake: stunning! Please tell me about the little round cakes all around. Did you cut them and serve them to guest?

I love your blue shoes and the sparklie golden ones. You look gorgeous, I just wish we could see more pics of you in your lovely outfits, but
I do understand. Thank you for sharing your photos of your wonderful day with us!

Edit: I just noticed the flowers down the stair-omg I wish I could have seen that in person-wow!

I love your hairstyle. I wish I had long enough hair to do that. Maybe I can grow it out for 7 months and get there. Oh, and the decorations and the cake are awesome.
