This is the first wedding that I can actually remember the groom in nappies (not the bucks night, like 24 years ago!) Andrew spent the first few years of his life living down the street, our Dad’s even worked together for a while. Now he is all grown up and met Clare at Relay for Life a few years ago and now they are all married.
I’m not sure if you saw the weather on Saturday in Launceston. It was a little wet, little being an understatement. It poured. Which meant that I got all excited with all the possibilities that rain brings with it.
Andrew and the boys started off by showing us how to not play golf, while the girls got all nice looking in town. Andrew likes cars, and hearing his commentary about his dad’s car mauvering abilities were great. I’m not sure why it took so long to get it out of the garage, but it did!
St Johns Church in Launceston was saw the coming together of the two families, it was so impressive that both Andrew and Clare’s parents and grand parents had all been married in the same church. It is fantastic to see such an great family tradition.
After the ceremony we ventured off into another different location. Somehow along the way it was decided to go to Andrew’s work to take some photos. As this was a timber yard I was up for it. Very different, very fun and look at the pubbles! It was worth getting drenched for these shots.
It all wound up in at the Grand Chancellor, which put on a great spread. We enjoyed surprising most of the guests (and the bride) with a same day slideshow of their photos.
Thanks again Andrew and Clare for being up for anything! I hope you guys are enjoying New Zealand, look forward to catching up with you when you get back.
