Opawa School and Wedding

Amanda & Michael {Married}

We are all a little weird and
Life’s a little weird,
And when we find someone who’s
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love!
-Dr Suess

 

It was finally here. When I first lay eyes on Amanda and Mike and saw them so intertwined in each other (not to mention Amanda was decked in purple, our mutually favourite colour ;-) I just couldn’t wait for their wedding day. They are one of those couples where you look at them and say to yourself. ‘Yip, that’s True Love right there!’

Amanda and Mike chose not to have a bridal party. All they wanted was their best friend and Mike’s ‘Best Woman’, Rayleen. Ray was a rock of support all through the day.

Amanda is all ready and beautiful and Ray goes to join Mike.

Then I was left in a beautiful garden with an absolutely beautiful bride and all this gorgeous time on our hands.

While Amanda and I chatted and played a game of Hangman. This is the name of the poem to be read at the ceremony.

And then it was time to become Mrs Crofts.
