Anniversary Memories

During our recent holiday, Julie and I celebrated our thirteenth wedding anniversary. Although we have been together longer than that, we actually married on the 10th of September, 2009. The wedding was in a very nice location, Rowhill Grange Spa Hotel, Wilmington, Kent. https://www.alexanderhotels.co.uk/rowhill-grange/

The weather was kind, and everything went smoothly. A real wedding to remember.

It occured to me that I have never posted any of our wedding photos on this blog, so I am now rectifying that.

Signing the register.

The First Dance.

My mum enjoying being ‘mother of the groom’. (She was 85 years old at the time.)

With my great friend Billy O’Neill, who was one of the witnesses. You can see he stood over a foot taller than me! We sadly lost him to cancer over five years ago.

A B&W alternative of the happy couple.

  1. What nice memories and what a handsome couple you make. Your Mom looks delighted as well. It is good to think that your friend could be there for that happy occasion. Thanks for sharing those, Pete.

      1. I smiled at your comment. I’ve learned to always check with my wife before posting anything on Facebook. It’s always smart to get their approval first.๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. When I was in the Ambulance Service, we used to say that you rarely saw a very tall old man. Billy was 6’7″ in his bare feet, and contracted bone cancer in his hips that spread all over his body. I miss him every day.
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. You’re welcome, Pete. We had ours – our 13th, too – on August 28 this year. For us it also seems longer, not on the least because we kind of “dated” [visiting each other once or twice a year in my holidays] for ten years.
