A Special Day in 1977 | April 09, 2010

When my mother and father got married, it was in a registry office in Sydney with 10 guests. Simple, small and intimate.

My mother wore a beautiful floral summer dress that cost her $45. She carried three red roses.

They married on New Year's Eve 1977.  I arrived 2 years later...


Just thought I'd share this sweet, nostalgic moment with you all :)

I'm still eagerly awaiting the engagement photos. So much so I'm having dreams about it.

    I am sitting with Rolana right now (the beautiful bride in these photos). She is visiting England and currently staying with my parents. I have popped round to say hello (it just happens to be my 38th birthday). Rolana is my mother's, mother's adopted sister's daughter. I believe that makes me 1st cousin once removed. This is the first time I have ever met her!
    We are relaxing in the lounge after our walk and picnic, getting our strength back before going to the local pub for dinner.
    Hello to Amy, love the website.
