    Hi,

    Ive got the pro photos back from NYC now :) and also the ones from the Liverpool reception back home. (My colleagues daughter is doing a media course, so did some pics for experience).

    Start with New York:

    The rings: -3 (533x800).jpg

    H2B & Best man waiting at the church: -21 (800x533).jpg

    Walking down the aisle with my dad:

    My bro giving a reading - he was terrified!

    The Church - quite huge for 23 of us lol. It's the Central Presbyterian Church at E64th & Park Ave, apparently featured in film The Devils Advocate:

    Photos on Park Ave:
    (I really enjoyed these, all passers-by were so nice, everyone beeped their horns, or shouted to us from the car windows. A police car put it's 'nee-nars' and light on for us. One dude who stopped at the lights where we were having photos wound down his windows and blasted out a love song that was playing on his stereo. Not your standard wedding photos experience, but a lot of fun!!

    All Guests:

    For this one we had to run out in front of the taxis stopped on a red light and do loads of poses dead quickly, the RUN when the lights changed!!

    -115 (800x533).jpg

    This made us laugh - a taxi coming past with a 'congratulations Will & Kate' sign on top. We'll have to get someone to photoshop our own names in!

    This is my fave:

    So, 2 weeks later we had the wedding reception back home, with all the extended family and the rest of our friends/colleagues/random people my dad had invited from his Local, claiming them to be his 'oldest friends'!

    This is where we cut the cake, had our first dance, and poor H2B (or in fact by this time Husband) had to do a speech to over 100 people!

    The Venue - it is actually in our local ferry terminal (Ferry 'cross the Mersey!!) which confused a lot of people. It looks nothing from the outside so people were quite wowed when they came in. And from the terrace at the back the views of the Liverpool Skyline were fab, especially when it got dark!

    The Cake, made for me by my bro's girlfriend (hopefully future sister in Law if my bro gets his act tgether and puts a ring on it!) She did it as a gift and I didn't see it until the day!. It was lovely, chocolate sponge. I got an email afterwards from one of my mums friends who'd been invited saying it was the best wedding cake she'd ever tasted!!!!

    Our Nephew, taking a little bit too much interest in the cake.

    The teapot flower arrangements. Most of them were pretty 'shabby chic' type teapots, but this is the one from my hen do with everyones names on that they had glazed for me.

    Wow that looks incredible! I'm glad you had such a fantastic time - how amazing that you got two chances to wear your dress!! The UK venue looks gorgeous, excellent choice.

    I love the sound of the photos in New York out on the streets - the photos are great! :)
