Two Birthdays and a Wedding

What a lovely weekend we all had. Good friends, whose birthdays are only a week apart - decided that their joint 40th would be as good a time as any to get married (or "committed" as they would say). Not just a party, but a whole weekend. In the country. In an old guesthouse.

Enlisting my clever (Events Manager) daughter to mastermind the event turned out to be an excellent idea! Just travelling down to the Southern Highlands and meeting up at an historic pub at Berrima put me and my friends in a party mood from the get-go. When we arrived at the venue at Bundanoon, everyone was in the same mood so it was always going to be a great night.
After a beautiful ceremony, it was time for Karioke, dancing, eating, the *fun booth (!) and later sitting around the log fire, cake and supper. What we still had to talk about at 3am I don't know, but we eventually decided to go to bed. Breakfast was BBQ bacon and eggs at 10am, and no-one was in a hurry to go home.

*And the fun booth? An instant picture booth, with dress up props, four snaps each go, one strip to you and one placed in an album for the happy couple. As the night wore on, the creativity of the snaps increased exponentially!
