Y4 - 301/365: Good A Day for a Wedding
The morning started out 'oh so quiet.' Ryan slept in his own little bed under his duvet the entire night and didn't join us in bed until just after 9am, at which point he promptly fell back asleep with us.
I eventually got up to shower and the boys got dressed shortly after so we could meet up with Em & Amy at the Beefeater Grill for our breakfast.
After brekkie the kiddos had a nice run around on the grassy lawn just outside. The weather was gorgeous and couldn't have been more perfectly celebrated than with a wedding of good friends.
At the venue, Oldway Mansion, Emma & Amy smile for the camera while Daz was off performing his Best Man duties at the front with Groom, Tony. (Forgive me for the condensed version of the day as the majority of the photos are on my Facebook and I didn't want the blog post to be too overwhelming.)
We kept the kids content with lollies. Not typically a treat Ryan would ever get, but it was enough to keep him sitting and quiet for the ceremony.
Bless, look at the daddies with their littles.
I'm sure the photos of the wedding party will turn out beautifully with such a lovely backdrop of the gardens at Oldway Mansion.
Ryan made some friends in time to cut a rug and dance around. I think this was surely his favourite part and it was nice to let him release a bit of his energy as all the stimulation was a bit much.
All in all it was a wonderful day and we were all happy to have been a part of the festivities. We definitely wish Emma and Tony a lifetime of happiness together! Batman, too.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
