Well, my blog isn't the place for personal/family revelations - but here are a few photographic tidbits from my niece's wedding, without the people- but they still give a taste..
The wedding ceremony was at St Francis de Sales church in Devonport. I took a quick drive in the morning to spy out the lie of the land. It was a showery morning, but the sun was shining when I visited. The wedding was at 3pm and at 2pm it hosed down. But in the event, the weather was glorious.
When I arrived to visit the venue I was gobsmacked: it was right on the shoreline at Cheltenham Beach, right opposite Rangitoto.
The wedding candle they lit together in the ceremony.
And the afternoon, sunshine view of Rangitoto from the venue. I really wanted to jump in and gave a swim!
