Jody & Richard.... 22.10.2010

My beautiful sister & her proud new husband were married last weekend.

Entwined branches of the willow tree formed circles which served as halos for delicate balls of cream silk tissue, threaded on long strands of white cotton. Floating amongst the tissue, brown paper hearts filled with merino wool, stitched closed with pale lemon embroidery thread.

During the commitment their two year old son, Bayden, chose a red rose from the antique rose petals that formed the aisle, and handed the flower to his mother. He wore pink ballet slippers which belonged to the flower girl ;)

Here are the bridal party photographs taken by the incredibly talented Justin Aveling.....

Jody had a real issue with shoes when she was younger. She is too grounded for those sorts of things. So in keeping with her desire for bare feet & divine beauty we threaded our own footless sandals with Swarovski crystals.
 For good luck a rose quartz mala (Buddhist prayer beads blessed by Rinpoche) broke at the end of the evening.....
