6 years ago, on August the 2nd 2009 my lovely wonderful hubby and  tied the knot. This year August 2015 It falls on the exact same Sunday as it did at the time.

Although it seems like forever ago 6 years is not nearly as long as the rest of eternity, I cant wait till I can proudly say: we have been married 36 years! Our love is stronger and we are more content than we have ever been.

So Throwback 6 years and here are just a few of our wedding pictures...

I remember I refused to have my Bridesmaids holding posies down the isle, they had birdcages with red and Ivory roses inside and feathers cascading. Our sisters were to hold lanterns with lit candles. I just really wanted to be different.

I remember it being so hot on the day, we struggled for pictures that were not too bright the sun was blazing all day it was so lovely

I would love to close by offering up my little black Book of contacts, but most of the companies we used sadly are closed today. Our marriage though still continues and that is what is truly what is most important.

Hugs, and love
