A perfect day

Receiving this bouquet was the first of many happy surprises on our wedding day.

On 24th October 2014 we entered the British Consulate, Sydney, Australia as bachelors.
We were the twelfth couple to be married.
We left the Consulate as bachelors.
We have been married in our hearts for the last 20 years.

4 March 1972

Two boys aged nine and six put on purple velvet trousers and shirts with a small floral motif in shades of purple, lilac and lavender against a white background.

Glimpses of a cold Sping morning can be seen through rivulets in the condensation collecting on metal framed windows.

As page boys they make their way to the Church of the Redeemer, Hagley Road, with three bridesmaids dressed in full length pale lavender gowns. The bride wears white satin; white daisies encircle her waist, form the puff sleeves of the dress and are scattered on the veil.

A chill grey urban scene provides the backdrop for an unhappy decade and a half of marriage.
