Wedding Pictures


I didn't think I had any photos of my daughter being bridemaid at my niece's wedding in Ireland. But tah dah, there were some hiding on my husband's phone. The dress is really more purple than it looks here. Click Here if you want to read a bit more about the making of the dress.
 


And a few from the reception, where there was pottery painting, face painting, balloon modelling, and I think a lot of fun. I wasn't there as my son had some school exams, which still makes me sad. They have the coolest ever wedding video on Youtube which I will try to link to, though I am not sure if it will work. It makes me well up whenever I see it, although I am someone who cries very easily. The setting by the river is beautiful, but my favourite moment is at the beginning where my husband and daughter arrive at the hotel.

  1. Your daughter looks beautiful in the dress. Really pretty headdress and flowers. It was so sad you couldn't attend. It sounds like it was an amazing day with all those wonderful things to do. Will you be making her more dresses now? You certainly did a fantastic job.

  4. What great face painting- a clever idea for the reception. Purple can be quite difficult to photograph- cameras don't like it. You're very clever to be able to make such a gorgeous dress.

  18. I was so busy over the summer and didn't get time to visit blog land. I woke up last night and suddenly remembered that I hadn't seen the finished dress, what a funny thing to think about in the middle of the night! Anyway, here I am now and it looks ever bit as beautiful as I expected, your daughter is gorgeous too xx
