Vintage barefoot wedding – Part 5 : Getting ready

wedding prep3

I guess every mother feels the same when her child gets married, but I confess as I sat looking through these photos to prepare this post, I was fighting back tears the whole time. So many different emotions were rising up from deep within me. Firstly, such an overwhelming love for my brand new Daughter – in – Love, Chloe. She is truly so beautiful and so dear to my heart. I am thankful to God for hand picking her to join our family, and so happy that my son has found so rich a treasure.

I was also beaming with pride at seeing my whole family involved in this wedding. Our six  beautiful daughters and two gorgeous sons were in the bridal party, and my precious hubby was the pastor who performed the ceremony. It doesn’t get much better than that!

My heart swelled as I saw  the pure joy on my son’s face as he prepared for his wedding day. It truly was the happiest day and I couldn’t be prouder of my son and his choice in so precious a wife. “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favour from the Lord” Proverbs 18:22

Once I  finished setting up the reception marquee, I raced (yes, raced in my heels) up the hill to see my treasures getting ready (Talk about multitasking!)

Such a joy.

The pictures tell the story here, so I will leave you for now and see you next time with the wedding ceremony.

(Note: I can’t help but chuckle at the difference between the girls and the boys getting ready! The photos speak for themselves.  Enjoy. xx)
