My best friend got married in May, and my lovely sister-in-law in July, and NTS’s cousin in September. It’s a year for weddings. Last weekend I even had the fun of wedding dress shopping with a friend of mine who’s having a wedding here in Edinburgh in the spring. So you could say I’ve got weddings on the brain. Luckily for you, I’ve also got a blog. So let me re-open my long-neglected series on weddings with a series of pictures.
Shortly after NTS and I got engaged, we went to check out the prospective site for our impending nuptials. Once we had checked that it had everything we needed for a wedding–roof, ocean, road–we held an impromptu engagement photo shoot. A little taste of what was to happen on that very spot, eight months later.
If we’d been in good earnest, we wouldn’t have done it on our way home from my parents’ house with the sun setting, and I wouldn’t be dressed in something I nipped from my sister’s closet on the way out.
Well, I might have, but it would have been more premeditated.
We probably would have packed a more sophisticated camera than my old point-and-shoot.
But we didn’t need the photos for invitations or party decorations. Just for memories.
As an aide-de-memoire, they suit admirably. I just stumbled on them again while looking for some documents and thought I’d share. I don’t think anyone has seen these photos before who wasn’t present.
So young and in love. Whatever happened?
(Just kidding, dear.)
