Love, sunshine and sea breezes...

... made for a fantastically fabulous day :-)
In my last post I mentioned that our daughter's wedding was approaching - now it's been and gone!!

We haven't had many photos to share - yet - but I thought I'd give you a quick peak of the ones that I do have :-)
Yes, we have got to the right place....
(Don't forget you can click on the photos to make them larger and see more detail.)
...the father proudly giving his daughter away...
...a beautiful happy couple...
..well and truly married...
...her sister does her proud...
...beautiful flowers everywhere... 
...scrumptious food and a great night was had by all...
...mother of the bride..'scuse the sunnies :-)...
Part of what made the wedding so special is that we all stayed out at the beach for the (long) weekend.
..love these communal meals...
...taking advantage of the summer sun...
.. I love this action shot of my brother and niece...
Did I already say it was an amazingly awesome wedding and time?
We're still coming back down to earth... I hope to land soon as there's plenty in the real world that needs doing!!
I hope to get back out into blogland again very soon, till then, happy stitching,
