We Did…

So, as many of you will already know… we got married.

20th May 2010

We decided quite a while ago that we wanted to get married, but we just weren’t quite sure how or when. We thought maybe we’d do it when we got back to London when we finished travelling, but we weren’t too keen on the stress of organising a big wedding. I must admit that the thought had occurred to us to get married while we were away travelling, but we hadn’t really taken the idea that seriously until we were in Cairns in January. We took my Dad’s bike out a few times and rode up the coast and decided that Palm Cove was where we wanted to do it.

20th May 2010

So we made some pretty big decisions in a pretty short space of time, booked the venue, chose a dress and then jetted out to India. We didn’t give my Mum all that much notice, but she managed to organise the fine details with about 6 weeks to go.

20th May 2010

Anthony’s family flew out from the UK and joined my family and some close family friends for the ceremony on 20th May. It was small, calm, and for us, perfect.

20th May 2010

Thank you to those of you who made such huge efforts to be there with us, and to everyone else for understanding why we did it this way.

    So beautiful.
    That last picture looks like something out of James Bond, and the first few look like a video by Abba.
    Take A Chance On Me?!

    Great idea for a first dance. I think I’ll take it.

      Excellent… I’m looking forward to that first dance already – roll on November!

        Well I won’t let Chris have Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison and he won’t let me have (I’m gonna be) 500 Miles by The Proclaimers so Abba it’ll have to be!

        • June 24

          How about an interpretive experimental dance to Bohemian Rhapsody?
          I’d pay lots to see that… in fact you could probably make up a significant portion of the wedding cost by selling tickets!

    Thank you mum for sharing this slideshow. Alexandra I noticed both your shoes (call me carrie) and I love the setting. Elegance meets remote beach setting with jagged rocks and windswept palm trees. Like the purple lights wrapped around the trees. Have a beautiful life together! xclaire

    We wish you both every happiness for the future and as we say in Bournemouth – Mazeltov! Hope to see you soon & will be ringing Flossie for all the news.

      Thanks guys.
      Yep… Swanage. How did you know? I thought I’d get away with just using a bit of Photoshop!
      I’m sure my mum will be MORE than happy to give you every last detail of the day.
      Thanks for the lovely comments and we hope to see you when we get back to the UK. xx
