Magical Moments


I am 55 so am a lot older than the normal bride. My moments was having all my children and new children and grandchildren at our wedding. We did things a lot different, My husband helped me choose my wedding dress and we took all our family photo's before the going to the chapel. Seeing all our close friends and family there to celebrate with us was lovely.

My eldest grandson of ten walked be down the isle this was such an experience for me to have him do this for me.
