oh thanks cinderella; they are a lovely couple, they worked very hard to make this wedding really memorable, [for all the right reasons] as did the bride's mum and family.

9 Sep, 2011

 

They look idyllically happy. I hope they enjoy a long and happy married life together.

9 Sep, 2011

 

me too ~ thanks scotsgran; they were/are very happy.

9 Sep, 2011

 

Is this your son who we all listened to on Radio Cambridge not so long ago. Sorry to have to ask but there is so much going on that I am struggling to keep up.

9 Sep, 2011

 

oh what a good memory you have scotsgran ~ im really touched that you remembered ~ yes this is the drummer son who was on the radio ~ he also played the drums during the wedding!

9 Sep, 2011

What a lovely photo. They look so happy and contented. And lovely flowers.

9 Sep, 2011

 

thank you Costas and Marshmallow; i thought it might be ok to put on here because of the flowers ~ i think there was a dutch antique rose included??

9 Sep, 2011

 

Lovely photo!

9 Sep, 2011

 

Lovely Photo Stickietoffee, they look so Happy, you must be so proud..

9 Sep, 2011

 

thanks sheila and young daisy ~ they are a lovely couple.

9 Sep, 2011

 

What a lovely couple!! When was the wedding Sticki? I think you should do a blog with many more photo's...please!

9 Sep, 2011

 

That is a good idea if they would not mind. I think you said they had decided on a cup cake wedding cake? I'd love to see that. The brides bouquet is lovely and very different from any of the ones carried by my daughters and daughter in law. They all chose exactly the same bouquet.

9 Sep, 2011

 

Lovely pic Sticki....and such a handsome son you have...All the very best to both of them from Ireland xxx
Ps...More pics please...:>)

9 Sep, 2011

 

13th August;
thanks Lil
do you know my mother hasnt said anything nice about the wedding ~ all of you have said nicer things than she has. i dont understand why.

9 Sep, 2011

 

you are all so kind. i dont like telling people about things i do and i dont like pictures of me so i havent said much, but you are a lovely lot.
thank you motinot ~ from ireland ~ the best man was irish ~ he was just fantastic.
i can put a picture of the cupcakes on for you scotsgran ~ they were really pretty. a friend did them for them.

9 Sep, 2011

 

what a beautiful couple ,, you must be so very proud .

:)))))))))))

9 Sep, 2011

 

oh, thanks mark ~ im very lucky!

i have 2 lovely sons but i still wish they lived at home.!!

9 Sep, 2011

 

we have one son who is house trained and on hire as he his at the stage of nearly entering the teens and he is too cool to speak to mum and dad if you want him lol

So special offer he his free to a good home comes complete with clothes,food,and spending money lol

We wouldnt swap him for the world though but still willing to hire him out lol.I also have two grown up daughters which you have probably seen my blogs on my grandchildren.:)))))

9 Sep, 2011

 

Sorry I am so late in seeing this Sticki,after Ba and I have been pestering you for so long..:o) but well worth waiting for..Absolutely lovely..such a handsome young man,and his lovely bride..,this is such a wonderful photo,and you are right to be so proud of them both..The flowers are just gorgeous..Thank you for sharing it with us..:o)

9 Sep, 2011

 

if it was up to me i would hire him tomorrow mark!!! sadly [for me] both my sons are going skiing at christmas ~ im very pleased for them; i have threatened to invite the lads from work round for christmas dinner!!!

thanks bloomer, i was lucky to get the photo ~ just popped my head into the car [driven by bride's sister!!] as photographer finished.

9 Sep, 2011

 

So glad you did,Sticki..the chance ones are sometimes the best..you did good ! :o)

9 Sep, 2011

 

thank you, its not so hard to get photos of these two they are both quite photogenic.

9 Sep, 2011

 

:o)))

9 Sep, 2011

 

My very best wishes to this lovely young couple. May they have many, many years of happiness together....

9 Sep, 2011

 

Thank you Breda, I hope so too!

9 Sep, 2011

 

What a lovely picture Sticki....best wishes to them both.
A very handsome young man and a beautiful girl. Mum's and their sons eh!!
Shame your mother hasn't said much. Is he her favourite? I feel sorry for the poor girl who gets my son - my mother will be a nightmare!! He is her favourite. She more or less brought him up as I ended up a single parent and was out working most of the time.
You will miss them at Christmas time....the neighbours would be talking if all these young men turned up at your door!!!!

9 Sep, 2011

 

Thanks Scottish! The lads from work won't really come round!
My mum has always liked him and she likes Zoe too, it was a church wedding which I thought she approved of, I just can't understand it.

10 Sep, 2011

 

Sticki, what a beautiful photograph! I bet this is better, more intimate, than any of the official ones. Your son has such a gentle face, a lovely couple :-)) I only hope the bride has an equally lovely Mother-In-Law!:-))

10 Sep, 2011

 

I try BA! She is a lovely girl, I really like her.

10 Sep, 2011

 

That's a start Sticki lol:-)

10 Sep, 2011

 

A lovely lovely photo Stickie, one of many I would imagine .You should put some more up. Best wishes to them both and to you.

12 Sep, 2011

 

Thank you Rose, I'm going to see them next weekend when I should see their photos properly?

12 Sep, 2011

 

Oh, Sticki, what a beautiful photo of a lovely couple on their wedding day! Handsome guy and gorgeous girl - you must be so proud! Congratulations and much happiness to them both.
Shame about your mum, though.

12 Sep, 2011

 

thank you constance, they are a lovely couple and im very lucky.
dont know what to say about my mum ~ still cant understand and there have been other problems since with a different person in the family ~ thankfully not these two!!

12 Sep, 2011

 

Families, huh - who'd 'ave 'em?!! (well, we would, most of the time.....but sometimes.........could see them far enough!)

12 Sep, 2011

 

Oh dear..there is always one,isn't there ?..or two !Such a shame to have a damper on your special day..Are you going to ask your mum what is the reason ? I'm afraid I would have to..just to put my mind at rest..it might only be something very trivial..you need to know ,Sticki,or else it is going to niggle away at you,and you need to put it behind you,and clear the air,or at least put a closure on it..

12 Sep, 2011

 

no i shant ask ~ i have a feeling i know why ~ its always been the same. im not sure she realises.

12 Sep, 2011

 

Oh well,Sticki..as long as you have an idea..but still a shame to mar the big day..

12 Sep, 2011

 

it makes me sad. and it has upset me but i wont let it take away from what was such a lovely day.

12 Sep, 2011

 

Good on yer,Sticki..lots of other lovely things to remember about your day..:o)

12 Sep, 2011

 

i sent you a PM bloomer.
there were certainly lots of lovely things to remember and some amazing people. these two have really nice friends as well ~ not surprising i suppose!!

12 Sep, 2011

 

Read it and replied,Sticki..

12 Sep, 2011

 

thank you!

12 Sep, 2011

 

You're welcome,Sticki..:o)

12 Sep, 2011

 

Huh secretive are we....well I'm going to pm someone else with..erm.. something:-}

12 Sep, 2011

 

...and where have you been,young lady ? I put a recipe on,just for you..and have you looked at it ? NO.!!
Lots of other friends have..so there !

12 Sep, 2011

 

yes i have nearly made it by now!! well in my mind i have!!!
i can PM you if you like BA!!!

12 Sep, 2011

 

Oh Sticki, just saw this, and what a great photo of a gorgeous couple! This is a really lovely share my friend. You must be so very proud..

12 Sep, 2011

 

What a beautiful photo of two people so obviously deeply in love with each other. Smashing Stickie, thanks for sharing it with us. I love weddings..........I wish them a wonderful life together full of happiness, sharing caring and love. xxx

13 Sep, 2011

 

Thank you flori and Linda, I hope to be seeing them - and the photos this weekend!

13 Sep, 2011

 

Trouble with wedding photos is that they take so many you never know which ones to choose............

13 Sep, 2011

 

I have seen some of these already and that will indeed be a problem! They chose the photographers carefully - they were a really nice couple. There is one photo I love - bit unusual - background of meadow type flowers and then a close up of hands clasped together, I loved it!

13 Sep, 2011

 

One of the guests had taken lots of photos at my daughters wedding. They sent me a disc of what they had taken which i thought was really thoughtful of them. I chose some of their photos to add to a big album I got to put the best of the photos taken throughout the day on disposable cameras we had placed on each table for the guests to use. My daughter and son in law were very pleased to have that as the official photos were not as good as what we expected. It gave them an insight of how their guests enjoyed themselves too.

13 Sep, 2011

 

Yes i have heard of that done before ~ its a nice idea; someone we know took a few photos for us ~ as its usually us that takes photos for other people!!
the photographers they chose came as a couple and stayed from morning till evening ~ both taking photos ~ good thing its all digital now!!

13 Sep, 2011

 

Everyone's said it already Sticki, but what a lovely intimate, romantic photo of two stunningly gorgeous people. Lucky you to have them, and lucky them to have you. :-) It must bring back happy memories of a momentous day for you all.
Lots of love XXX BT

13 Sep, 2011

 

What a lovely comment Beattie, thank you!
Nice to see you back - you haven't been on for a while have you?

13 Sep, 2011

 

My son in laws old Scoutmaster did a brilliant video for them of them getting prepared, then in the church and throughout the reception speeches and right through the whole day. He send both sets of parents videos too. People can be very kind.
You can be so proud of this young couple. They look so good together. I always cry at weddings and every time i come backto your blog I well up because this is how people should be.

13 Sep, 2011

 

I've been away from home a lot Sticki - keeping in touch via the miracle that is a dongle, but not on line or in the garden as much as usual. Now getting ready for another foray out of Cornwall towards the end of the week.

13 Sep, 2011

 

thank you scotsgran, i dont think anyone did take a video which is a real shame cos the music was exceptional and there was one speech in particular i would love to have heard and kept.

hope you are ok beattie, all the best.

13 Sep, 2011

 

Thanks Sticki, same to you. :-) XXX

13 Sep, 2011

 

I can understand that. The minister asked if we wanted a video and we said no. We felt it might distract people but he said the photographer can stand up in the organ gallery and he will be out of sight. We did not arrange to have one however. We had a party for all the guests the evening before the wedding and this chap asked if it would be alright if he came along in the morning to catch a snap shot of the chaos that is the brides home on her wedding day. I said preferably not. My OH and I went to deliver the cake and when we returned he was making a video of my daughter having her hair done. I got the same treatment. He had already been all over the church and church yard getting a feel for the place. After a coffee he went off to capture the toils and troubles of the bridegroom and best man donning their kilts etc for the first time. My OH had explained to my son in law how everything was put on and he was pretty self assured about it but the best man was a scream. He is a character and was probably playing it up for the camera. Nobody sees the bride arrive if they are in the church so it was especially nice to see my OH walk our daughter down the drive heralded by her cousin playing the pipes.
We are so lucky to have those happy memories and it brought my own wedding day back as that cousin had been a page boy at my wedding. my brother piped me to church and he piped my daughter and new hubby in to their reception.

14 Sep, 2011

 

Wow! Scotsgran you have some great memories!

14 Sep, 2011

 

Thankyou Scotsgran for sharing with us it ounded great. Love the pipes and the kilt, in fact we love Scotland and take holidays there. Going to the Edinburgh region next year for the first time.

14 Sep, 2011

 

edinburgh is a wonderful place linda ~ try to get to the botanical gardens if you can, they are free.

14 Sep, 2011

 

Sticki, Grandmothers see grandsons as a replacement of their sons or sons they didn't have.(or as they get older their husbands)

She has lost a son I think in her mind. In her mind no-one is good enough for your son. Given time she will come round. ( i know, I speak from experience)

Wait till the next generation comes along!!!!!!

But above all else rejoice in the fact your son has found his soulmate.

i dont think it is that grannyb but thanks for the thought ~ my mum likes zoe very much.

you never know about a next generation do you ~ i dont know if there will be one or not ~ have to wait and see. unfortunately both boys [and their wives] live 2 and a half hours away.

14 Sep, 2011

 

better late than never , just seen that fabulous photo, they look so content and happy.it's my wedding aniversary today 48 yrs, so it brought back a lot of happy memories.

14 Sep, 2011

 

Many Congatulations to you both,Tulsalady..what a great achievement..Hope you have been celebrating,or are going to do ,this weekend..:o)

14 Sep, 2011

 

my congratulations to you both too tulsalady!! 48 years!! that is quite something ~ well done you.

and thank you for your lovely comments.

14 Sep, 2011

 

That's a lovely photo and, I agree with - just scrolled back through all posts to find this out - Bornagain, probably nicer than many official pics, although you do say that there are some lovely ones. Personally, I hated most of my official wedding photos and took much more pleasure in those taken discreetly by friends; I am not comfortable in front of a camera. I can't wait for mine to start getting married. Your son looks lovely and his bride looks both beautiful and blissful. Hope your Mum says something nice soon, as I can imagine how upsetting it must be that she hasn't. Maybe you could try something along the lines of ,'How did you enjoy the wedding, Mum? Son's name (which I can't find) and Zoe were so pleased to have you there as so many young people no longer have their grandparents to share their special day.' Or something along those lines... Anyway, glad you had a lovely day,Sticki. Lots to look forward to.

14 Sep, 2011

 

thanks tuesdaybear! i hate having my photo taken too ~ much prefer to be behind the camera!!

14 Sep, 2011

 

me too sticki.

15 Sep, 2011

 

Thank you Bloomer and Sticki for your lovely comments. We had a lovely day and went out last night with the family for a meal.Now looking forward to our 50th, do you think it will last LOL.
I hope your mum will will soon accept the happy couple, and wish them many happy yrs together.

15 Sep, 2011

 

.I think you have had a long enough trial,so I'm sure you will reach your 50th together !My,how time seems to fly,doesn't it ?Glad you had a lovely time with your family..and wish you many more.My next door neighbours have just celebrated their 60th,,and still devoted to each other..:o)

15 Sep, 2011

 

Aint love grand eh? What would we do without em. ??

15 Sep, 2011

 

Congratulations from me too Tulsalady we celebrated 48 years in March. The years have flown by. Congratulations to your next door neighbours too Bloomer, 60 years is quite an achievement. It is lovely to think of their life time of ups and downs and that the bond which drew them together has stood the test of time.

15 Sep, 2011

 

thank you Scotsgran congrats to you to.:o)

15 Sep, 2011
