Emma and Steve's Wedding? Tick.

Saturday 23rd October 2010 was my sister's wedding to her shiny new husband Steve.

They got married at Wrest Park, Silsoe and it was a beautiful day.  The rain managed to hold off for most of the day and the sun even showed it's face a tiny bit!  We were extremely lucky and I didn't particularly fancy getting photographed in the rain!

Myself, Lauren and my cousin Rachel were all bridesmaids.  We had beautiful purple dresses which were surprisingly comfortable. 

We spent the whole morning getting ourselves ready for the big day.  Our hairdresser, Roxanne (ironically I went to school with her and hadn't seen her for about 8 years), did our hair beautifully.  (Although, it turns out I had about 70 kirby grips in my hair).

We did our own make-up and eventually we were ready.

The wedding car turned up earlier than we expected which created mayhem but we got there in plenty of time.

The ceremony was a success and it was great to see Steve's reaction to seeing Emma in her dress for the first time.  I wish I had a photo of that!

I played a couple of Baroque pieces on the flute (being accompanied by our family friend Richard) whilst Emma and Steve signed the register.  Hopefully people enjoyed it.

We then had many photos taken, luckily avoiding the rain!  It was freezing though!

Dinner was a success and the speeches were very enjoyable.

We drank a lot, got merry and danced.

I think I speak for everyone when I say an enjoyable and joyous day for all.

New Project.

Since I am feeling creative at the moment, I feel my blog needs a bit of an update.  I am currently having a bit of a rethink regarding the style of this blog.  Although I do love the style and layout of my blog at the moment, I feel a classy change is in order.  I know I will miss the vintage look to my dearest blog, but deep down it's not my usual style.

Over the years, many people have frequently made comments about my vivid choice of colours.  I just can't help that my eye sways towards the brighter colours in life.  I love working with patterns and florals and beautiful things.  Why should my blog, the one place where my creativity and style is on display, look dark, and almost, gloomy?

I am having a rethink regarding my title.  When I began my blog, I was completely unoriginal in the title "SammyPantha."  It made sense to me at the time since it is my nick name but on reflection, I feel a title should reflect what is being written about instead of the author.  Any ideas, please send a stamp addressed envelope.

I hope you like the gradual update and enjoy the end result!
