Happily Ever After

Laura and Scott

As regular readers will know, my family and I were in Canada in July of this year, so I was especially grateful to be able to travel back to Ontario at the beginning of this month for my cousin’s wedding.

The lovely church was set in beautiful countryside and the weather could not have been more perfect.


So much love went into the wedding preparations, right down to the tiniest detail. The bride designed the bridesmaid’s jewellery herself.  The minister was a dear friend of the bride’s family, a friend played the violin, the bride’s aunt played the piano and her uncle sang during the signing of the register.

The bride wore a beautiful strapless white silk dress accented by beading at the waist, its full skirt edged with embroidery. The four bridesmaids wore matching strapless gowns with narrower, flowing skirts in wasabi green, and the groomsmen’s tuxedos were accented with patterned waistcoats and ties in the same shade. The bride’s bouquet included bright pink roses, green mums and creamy orchids, and the bridesmaids carried bouquets of bright pink Gerbera. Calla lilies in cream and shades of pink also featured. The flower girl wore a beautiful white dress and fabulous pink shoes. She was totally adorable, as were the two little boys who walked down the aisle with her. The groom was very charming, especially as he was meeting many of the guests at his own wedding for the first time on the day!

Most of all, this wedding was fun, with lots of laughing, dancing and sharing.


It was fabulous to see so much of my family all at the same time, and we were all so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful celebration.


Wishing Mr & Mrs Stevens a very, very Happily Ever After.
