In which there are even more wedding pictures

So the post about the wedding were dwindling away, and real life has very much returned to my world. However, there are still left over bit and pieces that we have to do. Get new passports, change our names on everything, and of course make the photo album. Our photographers were utterly amazing and sent us 1300 photos! It's more than we ever imagined there would be, but  they are amazing. We wrestled it down to 200 for the album after going through them over and over. I thought today would be nice to share a tiny snippet more of the top selection. Last time we only had the sneak preview, so I am going to share a few more of the moments that you didn't see. Especially the cake. Because if you do read this blog a lot you might remember the posts about the cake-making and testing or how to make an origami bouquet. You might remember my wedding planning montage so now you can see all those final bits of making, happening in the real world

Wedding rings, in the box Andy used to propose to me with.

So that's what the boy were doing in the morning.
I wrote a little love letter to Andy to be read on the morning of, and delivered to him in this little tin.

Shoes! With hearts on them!
Me, reading from Now We Are Six at our first ceremony.

Jumping right to the second ceremony.


Apparently I really like pictures of shoes
I love this picture! I love it so much it's going to be the cover for the wedding album.
Pimms. Mmm.
We had some giant games.

And a giant parachute.

There was in fact a bit of a games theme.
Kingdom Hearts themed centrepieces, which took forever to make. I do love Kingdom Hearts.
The guestbook. Also a lot of work. I layered origami paper over each other on the page behind, then cut out our names and the date with a craft knife. Then glued together.
It's the cakes! Exactly what you've been waiting for I am sure. Aren't they just the best? My mum made these!

There was dancing
and briefly sushi. People ate that so fast I barely managed any myself.
And more dancing!

So there we have it. As I said, that's down from 1300 so I'm not showing it all and perhaps my choices were a little odd. However, I hope you are interested/amused/entertained/confused by the things you have seen.


  1. Hooray! I love wedding photos! The first one is especially sweet. It looks like it was an incredibly sweet and amazingly fun day!

  2. What lovely photos! I love your lego cake! That must have been some job narrowing it down to 200 out of 1300!!

  3. These photos absolutely epitomise what a wedding should be: fun and joyful. Looking at that Lego cake, the pictures of you and Andy skipping and the giant parachute shows me that you also have a beautiful friendship. Lovely, lovely wedding photos. The one you're using for your album cover is my favourite, I love the first shot too.

  4. You look so beautiful and I really really love how much of you and Andy is in the wedding. This is clearly a wedding full of personality. And I love the unique gaming theme throughout. So perfect. And the cakes? I mean, if there wasn't some lego reference in your wedding...I would question if it was actually yours :)

  5. The photos are all so lovely! You look so beautiful. I love your dress and that giant parachute looks like so much fun!!! And the cakes?!?! Your mom did a great job :] Congratulations you two.

  6. Ha- so many fun details and I've already mentioned how cute your attire was! Love it all!

  7. Oh my god, I love the location of your wedding! It's so cute! And the giant parachute! <3 Congrats! ^--^ Everything looks so gorgeous and A+ for those cakes.

  8. These are such immensely joyful photos and it's an uplifting experience looking through them. What beautiful details of your wedding day too, especially the lego cake (so inspired), the scrabble place settings and the games and the smiles - just look at all that smiling - it's infectious, I'm smiling as I scroll down through the images.
