As you may know – we have lost all our professional wedding pictures. And by “lost” I mean, our wedding photographer had a dog vs hard drive catastrophe and let’s just say the hard drives came off second best. You can read the whole long sob story here.

I have been trying to go through the few random pictures that we did get from the photographer – they are either mainly party shots or random crazy shots – most of them are screen-grabs of a a big computer screen which are obviously too low res to print.

Straight after the wedding I blogged about “how to be the most awesome bride evarrrr” in which (ironically) I mentioned that you should just be a real bride and not to worry about getting all the ‘bridesy-shots’ – your photographer will have that covered – lol turns out, all the photos I now have of me on my wedding day, I am either pulling a crazy face, laughing so hard it looks like I’ve been frozen in a pig snort or fishing something out my teeth. I’m not sorry. I have tried to scrape together bits and pieces from the few professional pics we have and the friends and family pics that I have asked them to send to me.

Let me be honest – our wedding album is turning out to be far from elegant. But – as wonderful husband says:

“Our love story is far from conventional. So, I guess we may as well have an unconventional wedding album to match.”

Yeah, we love that guy.
I’d swop no-pictures to have found my soulmate, any day.
So – back to me hacking through the mess that is our wedding photos – I found these three photos which go together so I thought I would share them with you. Warren told me one of his mates was busy chatting to him when this whole debacle went down –

{Picture left: “Did she just…?… wait. no. Did she just really… and that guy? And they were having a push-up contest… and she just beat..?…No.. she couldn’t have…no..”}

Yeah buddy,
Yeah, I did.

So as I pull together random pics to (finally) show you some snippets from our day – be warned: you will not see elegant bridesy-portrait-composed moments –
because we simply do not have them.
You will only see the few random, crazy-beautiful in-between-snapshots bursting full of life –
which, in all honesty –

 is exactly us.

PS:
Dearest Stuart Prior
I will be re-challenging you to a push-up contest on your own wedding day –
and you had better not lose again.
Your beautiful new wife would be very disappointed –
and I would hate to have to feed her alcohol to drown her sorrows.
Until then –
Sincerely,
Mrs Dyer (League Wife).
