    The food! Shocker!
    I also love getting together with family and friends of the happy couple, watching the loved up ones dance and talk to others.
    I love the flowers, and seeing the dress, oh and the speeches. So much love in the air, makes me wish i could bottle it. I LOVE a wedding hehe 😀
    Oh and theres always a crazy old uncle that does something they shouldn’t, or dances humorously to One Direction, Bieber or other such top 40 hits hehe! 🙂

    Goodness, their smiles say it all don’t they 😀

    As for the best part of a wedding … honestly, it’s normally when the bride and groom drive away at the end – because to me that point signifies the start of their life together and really, as far as I’m concerned, it’s not the wedding day that’s important but the marriage that follows …

    (and it’s not at all because by that stage I’m normally dead tired)

    I’m totally a sucker for the moment the groom sees the bride. Somehow they always have this look on their face before hand of “maybe she isn’t going to turn up” and then the ” will she look like a giant meringue”. The look is always the best mix of relief/love/astonishment of how gorgeous she is/and slight terror of this is actually happening. Love it.

    I love a stop in Berrima. I would have stolen the capers. I’m sad about capers today, I forgot to put them (and olives) in my ratatouille for the week and my lunches will be all the plainer as a result.

    gorgeous wedding indeed!
    and i could not agree with your weddng cake icing sentiment more! Strange stuff that it is!

    I like the boogie-time… dance floor action yeeeehah. Oh and the champagne. I went to a bunch of wedding while I was pregnant so the cake was totally the best part when I couldn’t indulge in the free champagne 😉

    Hannah, something about your writing here had me giggling from start to finish 🙂 I am sure that’s not an appropriate reaction but there you have it, I am giggling yet. If you have triggered a hysterical reaction I shall let you know…

    To honour the proper subject, many congratulations to your friends! They look incredibly happy and glowing in these pictures – that smile on Liz is incredible 🙂 – and it sounds like a lovely day combined with many noteworthy foods, which of course are essential for lovely days to be at their loveliest.

    Favourite part = the drinks and dancing 🙂 & the cake. Looks like such a beautiful wedding! & I usually really dislike nougat but man, that rose-petal pistachio nougat looks insanely delicious. I’d go there.

    The pony looks like he’d be all “heehaw herrrummpph!” and then start talking in a funny horsey voice. Pony!

    I haven’t been to many weddings, but some friends of ours had a super low key marriage ceremony last summer, followed the next day by a picnic and ‘photoshoot’ with their guests. It was rainy and cold and windy (we were on the coast), so the bride’s dress was all drippy wet. Quite a lovely memory, though:)

    Lovely bride, lovely wedding, lovely food! I’m such a curmudgeon, I don’t really care too much about weddings. I’ll take any excuse to buy a new dress though.

  11. Vien @ We Dare Food

    The bride’s so beautiful 🙂 I love attending weddings!! hmm.. my favourite part would be the FOOD! oh right.. and of course, seeing the lovely couple beaming in joy!
    That is one good looking Caesar salad! I don’t see the sauce though! 😛

  12. Winston

    Wow! What an elegant wedding. And that cake…. Huba-baba-baba @_@ @_@ @_@

    Smoked salmon and capers cream pasta is one of my favourite pastas to eat, hands down! Haven’t had them in years thanks for the reminder. Your salad looks great too. And is that anchovies I see? Anyhoo, glad to hear you had a great time at the Wedding! Take care, yo

  13. Rach

    Looks like a lovely wedding. The bride was gorgeous and I love her dress! Speaking of pretty dresses… yours was great too! 🙂

  14. Iron Chef Shellie

    oh how I love gawking at wedding photos! and well, the food too 😛

  15. Theresa

    Woah, gorgeous bride alert! I wonder if the cake had marshmallow fondant? I saw a recipe for it yesterday and it seemed like it may possess the characteristics you’ve listed…

    My fave thing about weddings is the smiles and happiness on everyone’s faces!

  16. April

    Aww, the bride looks so radiant and happy! Best wishes for the both of them.

    You looked great too 🙂

  17. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    What a gorgeous couple! What a lovely day to share with us 😀

    Your friend Liz is stunningly gorgeous. Can you tell her that for me? Alex is a lucky, lucky man. 🙂
    It’s so strange when your friends get hitched. It makes you think you’re entering a new chapter of your life. It makes me feel old! Even though I don’t ever want to get married (and truth to tell, I hate weddings…the only favorite part is the eating?).

  19. Hotly Spiced

    What a beautiful bride. Stunning dress, lovely flowers, incredible hair and a winning smile. I’m so glad the weather was good to them – weddings are so difficult in the rain. And your shoes were gorgeous! My favourite part of a wedding would have to be when the bride walks down the aisle (so best to arrive before she does) and the bridal waltz – two great photographic moments! xx

    I do love re-enjoying our experiences through your blog. This was a lovely weekend – well, Sunday and Monday.

  21. Johanna GGG

    all that food looks delicious but especially that rose petal nougat – I looove nougat and this looks so pretty. weddings are so much fun – I love seeing how people celebrate their lives together – cake and speeches are definitely the best bit

  22. Liz

    Thanks for this , it was super sweet. You have such lovely followers too, with such pleasent things to say ;). Thanks for comming up from Canberra, it was lovely to have you there. You are a goldern friend, I laughed the other day watching two small girls play shop just like we once did. You looked wonderful too, how do you walk in those heals! I personally thought the cake was amazing and the sugar flowers too. My friend Dio makes and decorates cakes in her ‘spare time’! Im a fan of weddings more than other parties I think, as atleast if you dont know many people you can just muse about the service, food, dresses, hair or just zone out and enjoy a meal and smile. Keep posting. Love reading about your adventures.

    Lovely photos of the wedding …. and the food. I want it all.

  24. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Congratulations to your friends Liz and Alex 🙂 She sure was stunning! I love that photo and her smile ~ The food looks great too! So many people around me are either newly engaged or getting married lately 😛

  25. juniakk @ mis pensamientos

    my favorite part of the wedding is seeing the expression on the groom’s face as his bride walks down the aisle. swoon! you never see a man so candidly in love. 🙂

    hahah i think wedding cake icing always tastes bad… b/c they have to make the cake and decorate it in advance… i think decorating can take days!

  26. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    I’ve never been to a wedding as a guest. But I went to a handful when I worked at the photobooth company in Australia. And the best part was the dancing and champers 🙂
    Beautiful wedding though, her dress is absolutely gorgeous

  27. Ashley

    Awww, all the photos look so gorgeous 🙂 I love how happy weddings always are! In Asian weddings, I always love when the groom goes to pick up the bride, the bridesmaids set some ‘tasks’ and obstacles for the groom and the groomsmen to complete before he gets to see her! Always a fun time… 🙂
