Today we attended the Great Dane Rescue fund raising picnic, where many of  the rescues and their owners came to socialise and meet each other.  Hosted by Tanja and Louisa, the Founders of Great Dane Rescue.

These two dynamic women go out and rescue Danes from abusive homes, those that have been abandoned and some who’s owners just don’t want them anymore, all at their own cost and 100% reliant on sponsors.

It was a great morning, watching all the Dane’s mixing with each other. Really showing their loving nature, wanting strokes and pets from everyone they could

A Flower girl becomes a bride

Posted: November 26, 2016 in Family, wedding

On the 6th of May 2000, I watched a little 8 year old girl dressed in a beautiful pale yellow dress, with flowers in her hair,  walking towards me down the aisle in a chapel.

 

Little did we realise, that 16 years later, she would, again, walk down the aisle. This time in white with the man of her dreams.

Yesterday we attended the wedding of Nicole’s cousin Leigh, as she married the man her dreams, Kyle, who clearly, swept her off her feet.

It was a beautiful ceremony at a most incredible venue Galagos Country Estate. Despite the pouring rain hampering an outdoor wedding, the ceremony went off perfectly in their little chapel.

Whilst Leigh and Kyle had the photos taken…

… the guests were entertained by live music…

There was a bubbling happy vibe in the reception, where excellent food and elegant decor made the night even more special

It was a very special evening for us, experiencing our flower girl getting married.

Leigh and Kyle, a perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.

Oh, and lets not forget the dessert plates, on which chocolate print screening thanked the guests.
