As you're reading this, I will be touching down in OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg after a long, exhausting and uncomfortable flight. I'll be in South Africa for ten days and will have very little time to check emails and blogs.
Today is a very important day for me though as it is my 7th wedding anniversary. I'm going to take the opportunity over the next ten days to upload photos from our wedding and our honeymoon in Spain and London.
Ste and I got married on 28 March 2002 at Shumba Valley Lodge, north of Johannesburg. These are the official wedding photos so naturally I didn't take them because, um, I am in them. You can click on all the photos for more detail.
My brother walked me down the "aisle". We got married outside and walked right around the beautiful blue swimming pool at the lodge.

Thanks to the photographer, we were 45 minutes late for the ceremony. I was wearing the veil Ste's mum Robyn wore when she got married.
This is my favourite photo of all. Of course, the priest nearly lynched the photographer for calling to me in the middle of our vows. Ste's brother Donald is next to him.
I nearly lynched the photographer for calling to me during our first dance.
It was a full moon on the day of our wedding which is meant to be good luck.
We had a lot of fun at the wedding too! The flower lady put dragonflies in all the flower arrangements because she heard they were on the invitations - what a lovely touch! Stephen had Chris hold up laugh prompts during his speech so everyone would laugh at his jokes! The cake was beautiful and we still have some!! And Stephen was very skilled in retrieving the garter belt with his hands tied behind his back.
