We're Married!

Just in case you missed it, Kristal and I tied the knot shortly after 1pm on 25 July 2009. It was an unforgettable day and as we get the photos organised I'll be posting a few accounts of the highlights of the occasion, either here or on my own blog.

Here is a photo of the wonderful woman I am engaged to wed. Among her many talents and abilities she holds the knowledge required to preserve soft fruits using copious quantities of refined cane sugar. You see her here in the process of this fabulous tradition. If you are able to make it to the wedding, you too will be able to share in this delectable skill. See y'all there!

Thanks to everyone who has already responded! It has been really exciting getting the postcards in the mail, even from people who we already knew we coming. Props to my aunt who went to the effort to mail a card back from England - we were very touched. We are now within 6 weeks of the wedding day and suddenley we're realising its time to start doing all those things we were putting off until 'nearer the time'. Well, the time is nearer, so we'd better get to it!

Our invitations arrived this week! We are very happy with how they have turned out. I'm afraid I can only give you a glimpse as I don't want to spoil the surprise of the overall effect! It's very exciting to see our names together on a wedding invitation!

How we met the band

Musical entertainment at the reception will be provided by Mojo Workin'. We first ran into Tom "T-Pot" Hailey and Tim "Streak" Morley at The Legend Brewing Company playing their signature "foot stompin', gut growlin' blues" on guitar and harmonica. Maybe it was the oysters, but we immediately fell in love with their fun honest sound. While they we taking a break I asked if they played weddings and got the reply in the affirmative. The wedding was still a long way off, so I didn't engage in any serious negotiations at the time, but in their second set Tom dedicated a song to us and we knew it was the start of something exciting!

All was quiet on the Mojo front for a few months, then an email arrived announcing another gig at Legends. They played their first set out on the deck, and proved to be just as capable of getting their groove on in the windy outdoors as they had been in a noisy pub. On Sunday night we went to see them at Lu-Lu's and sealed the deal!
