Remember, remember, this is the 5th of November - and SPRINGTIME in New Zealand ... so why did we wake to snow? Snow all around our little wooden cabin in Shotover Camping Grounds, Arthur's Point, Queenstown on Saturday. We were off to our nephew's wedding. A white wedding in November is an unusual occurrence in this part of the world.
The wedding venue - on the road out to Glenorchy, at Bob's Cove - was in Alveridge Hall, home of the bride's uncle, Ivan Clarke; creator of the famous 'Lonely Dog' character.
A stunning venue and beautiful surroundings for the wedding. No pictures of the wedding party or ceremony, guests etc. but I captured something of the many details that caught my eye. (The bride's favourite colour is PINK- and pink was definitely an an invited guest).
Mmmm ... a light, lemon cake with white chocolate icing - SO yummy.
Jars of sweets and candy were a feature ...
The bridal party's bouquets.
The car the bride and groom left in.
At one point, I took a break from all the festivities to take in some of the surroundings ...
As evening set in at my in-law's home, once again I was compelled to try and capture something of the sinking sun's light reflecting off the Remarkables mountain range, signalling the end to a very good day.
