We are 10!

On this exact day and date 10 years ago, we were married in the presence of our immediate family and closest friends. The time was 4:30pm to be exact.
 
It was a gloriously sunny and windy day. Absolutely perfect for the men to be decked out in their suits and for the make up on the ladies to stay in tact without any fussing.
 
That day will be remembered for all the right reasons. It was a wedding that represented us. Nothing over the top. A small and intimate wedding party for 50.
 
I shall never forget that day for as long as my mind remains in tact!
 
The wedding ceremony took place by the pool of an upmarket boutique hotel in the quieter part of Brisbane City from 4:00pm to 4:30pm
 
The Chinese tea ceremony took place under a large gazebo by the pool from 5:00pm to 5:30pm.
 
While our guests nibbled on canapés and drinks back in the hotel  from 5:30pm to 6:00pm, we took off with our photographer for twilight photos around the city.
 
Our dinner, speeches and dancing took place from 6:30pm - 9:00pm.
 
The very next day, we went on our 16 day honeymoon that spans the entire South Island of New Zealand. It was magical.
 
Today, we will be taking off by ourselves for an overnight staycation, luxurious dinner and a leisurely hot buffet breakfast. Time to ourselves is our gift to each other.
