LIFESTYLE: A family wedding

Summer Family Garden Wedding

I’m a big lover of love, happiness and marriage. And of course this is all started from a wedding. And I loves me a wedding. If you want me to cry during a film, pick one with a wedding, it is pretty much guaranteed (note, I don’t often cry at real weddings – I cried at my mums wedding in 2009, that’s it… I didn’t even cry at my wedding… well maybe one tear… but Dann more than made up for it with his tears! He’s such a cutie!).

Anyway, last weekend we attended the last Bradford wedding for this generation as Dann’s brother got married. As the older brother, Dann played Usher/Groomsman, and looked dashing as usual in his tails from Moss Bros.
*warning, this post is photo heavy as I just loved so many of the images!!*

Traditional for the Bradford family, the boys started at the pub opposite the church – the boys always start in the pub – and then attended the ceremony at the church in the middle of Hambleden Village. This church means so much to me. It’s where I got married to Dann, and means an awful lot to the entire family as all three Bradford children (Dann, his sister and his brother) have have gotten married there. It’s one of my favourite places in the world, with so many happy, loving memories. 

As expected with the bride and groom, there was much laughter, drinks and fun to be had, and we were totally honoured to be a part of their special day… they really are the funniest pair and deserve every happiness together.

Their beautiful summer garden reception was a perfect representation of the new Mr and Mrs Bradford, with pretty pink and white flowers, and a soft elegant, country feel.

Spending time with our super smart niece was one of the highlights for the day – teaching her how to use my camera and letting her take her own photos. At the end of the weekend we had taken over 550 photos between myself, Dann and Erin-Mai.

I spent time with my lovely new (well two years but still) family, and I’ve honestly not felt so happy and relaxed in such a long time.

    This is the place for a beautiful wedding. The ceremony was held in the dining hall, which commands a breath-taking view of the city. I only wish I appreciated wedding venues NYC more when I was there. Oh well. You live and learn.
