My Sisters Wedding!

My sister got married on Saturday afternoon, and oh my! It was so super loverrrrly! It was one of my favourite days I've had in such a long, long time! The weekend started Friday afternoon with a family bbq/mini reunion at Rafferty's Resort Lake Macquarie where the wedding festivities were held. I got to see a lot of my cousins & family friends whom I hadn't seen in months. It was such a nice night.

Saturday Luke & I slept in quiet late, well, late considering our apartment was the desired breakfast haven from around 7 in the morning! We kept putting off getting up because we both had way too much whiskey at the bbq & combined with the atmospheric excitement in the apartment I was sure it would make me nauseous. At 9.30 am we got up & had coffee with everyone, & watched my Granny stress over making (very!) last minute alterations to the bridesmaid dress. My cousin Sophie was one of my sister's bridesmaids & she has been living in Europe for the past four months & the day of the wedding was the first time she had seen her dress. Although my sister is usually the resident stress-head, she was very, very relaxed - almost too relaxed - about the whole come together of the wedding!

Luke & I went for a drive to Swansea to get some things for everyone, & on our way into town we saw a burnt out car on the side of the road, and 2 kms down the road another car on fire with nobody around. On our way back the road was heavy with emergency services & there were people everywhere. It was quiet weird. When we got back to the apartment, we had some champagne, glued some bows to bells, & quickly dressed for the wedding. I put my dress on at 2.40 pm and the wedding was at 3 pm! It was all set up so beautifully, the were rose petals for the isle, flags to mark the spot & cute little white chairs.

The ceremony was over just as quickly as it began, and there was a little while before the reception started so we went back to my aunty & uncle's apartment for drinks and a catch up. My cousin Jay, who is possibly one of the biggest babes ever, and who I hadn't seen since Christmas last year, flew out the next day to China to live for 12 months :( However, when he'll be back, Luke & I should be happily settled into Sydney so we'll see each other more thankfully.

The reception started at 6 pm, the second we got there we hit the bar up for some wine to start our evening. Ash (my sister) had bought some stuff off my friend E for her wedding, that she had at hers. The hot spot of the evening was the 'crazy photo booth', and Jay & I went straight over, donned some costumes & did our best Subo ! After a little bit, we sat at our tables & the bridge & groom made their entrance to 'thunderstruck', it was so much fun! On the tables for everyone's name card, we put personalised titles/inside jokes under their names, it was also a bridge for guests who didn't know each other so well. Everything & everybody looked so brilliant & beautiful.
