Marion is holding up Mary's bridesmaid dress which Mum also made.
Mike took a photo of us with our heads close together & quipped'Is this the Confessional?'
Joan & David made up a beautiful scrapbook of our long friendship with them. Mandy mounted our original wedding photos in a neat golden frame & Jake put our old family home movies on a disc,which ran continually on the wall & gave us lots of laughs!
The girls made up platters of fresh prawns,smoked salmon,little quiches & of course,Mum's famous & delectable sausage rolls & Italian meat balls! The finale was a huge white cake with golden trim & a large "50th Golden Anniversary" scroll on it.
Mandy made a very beautiful toast from the bottom of her heart & got quite emotional,which we all loved & a few tears were dabbed away.In fact it was so good that I got emotional,too!
As guests had to drift away to other commitments,we just sat out on the verandah & reminisced for hours. A refreshing cool sea breeze sprung up & drove the 34 degree heat away.
It was a fabulous day & we can hardly wait another 50 years for the next one!
Thank you for all of your love & friendship over the years. We love you! Sally & Roy.
