Friday morning I walked into Louise and Keith's house and was greeted with cheers and big smiles from Louise and all her girls getting ready. Louise was on her way out, tiara and all, to grab some bacon sarnies to set them up for the day and was so kind to offer me one. If I hadn't had stuffed my face before I left I would have definitely obliged! I just loved how calm and chilled she was, and still thinking about everyone else on her big day.
Her twin nieces (identical!) were so excited and couldn't wait to have their hair and makeup done. They were adorable and I was useless at remembering who was who! Once in their dresses I wasn't the only one struggling to tell them apart! It was all laughs and happy moments.
I arrived at the venue with stormy clouds looming but found Keith in high spirits and it was clear to see how excited he was to see Louise. The ceremony was beautiful and Louise had an incredibly infectious laugh which had the room laughing. I had a surprise too when I saw one of my past brides as the registrar! I did a little happy dance.
We all went onto the golf course for some photos and again everyone enjoying every moment of the wedding, then myself, Louise and Keith were driven around on the golf buggy for a bit of exploring for some gorgeous photo opportunities!
It was a wonderful day, and I was so happy to have been a part of it. Everyone was so welcoming and happy, and it was beautiful seeing Louise and Keith surrounded by so much love and happiness. And it stayed dry! Those stormy clouds waited until my very last group photo in the evening and on my way home at 9pm the heavens opened and it did make me smile! How lucky were we?!
