The star of our midweek mini features this week is the amazing dad of our lovely reader Nia. Nia & Paddy got married on the 23rd of May at St. Matthews Church in Llanelwedd then had their picnic themed reception at Jubilee Hall.
We were incredibly blessed to have the sunshine down on us for our picnic themed wedding! The hay bales were set, picnic food laid out, wood chopped, cupcakes displayed, the florist had matched the church to our hymn ‘All things bright and beautiful’ perfectly. The morning preparations had gone smoothly, I was all set to become a wife to the love of my life!!!
Two memories that stand out from the day both include two very important men to me! My husband and my Dad! Now between myself and hubbie we have 5 children, yes it’s a mad house! I will never forget in his speech how he spoke so fondly about each one, noting their characteristics, it made me realise how lucky we are to have such a strong family unit, cemented by our wedding day. I felt so proud to have married this very special husband, Father and Step-Father!
Now then my Dad isn’t much of a talker! He didn’t want to speak, so why put pressure on him? However what he lacks in public speaking he sure makes up for in dance moves!! We did a ‘Father/Daughter’ dance to his favourite song ‘Bad Moon Rising’. It was fast paced, and Dad twirled, dropped to his knees and pretty much nailed the performance! A very proud daughter to have a Dad at the age of 72 that can still dance like that!
Thank you for telling us your story Nia! It looks like you had a fabulous day.
