Today we celebrate 43 years together. We were married at St.Marks Anglican Church in Forest Hill.
I grew my hair: it took the better part of a year as it had always been short. The veil was borrowed from my cousin and Mike gave me the gold heart shaped locket. I carried a white leather prayer book with a pink silk rose on top of it.
My tiny tiara was hidden in my hair but it sits in my sewing room on the shelf now.
We had an alcohol free reception and most of our guests finished the celebrations at a party at Mike's parent's house.
After the reception we were to spend the night at our rented flat. We were unaware that the locks had been changed earlier in the day and of course we didn't have a key. A drive down the highway and we found a motel to stay in. The manager obviously didn't believe we were married and put us in a room with single beds. We laugh about it now!
