LOVE on the Queen Mary

When Christine and Daniel called me months ago – telling me they found me online, that they saw and loved Ben and Shelby‘s photos from the Queen Mary, and practically hired me on the spot! I was delighted to turn back time again… and had I known how far they had gone with their nautical theme I would have worn one of my striped shirts! I even have a special sailor one…. but I blended in the background in my regular all black outfit…) There’s something about this vessel that excuses elegance, jubilance and grandeur of an era long gone. Christine and Daniel were pen pals when they were teenagers, Daniel being Australian; (when I was in elementary school, we learned that Australia was so big and people lived so far a way, that kids sometimes learned at home via correspondence, or via radio… oh the days before the internet… so a pen pal seems a logical Australian thing to do!)  Years later they reconnected – so much so, that Daniel decided to board a ship, ok, it was probably a plane, but wouldn’t it have been SO ROMANTIC???  So once on dry land,  the love blossomed in real life too…..! And last week, the rest of the families crossed the big blue sea to witness and celebrate Christine and Daniel tie the knot in style! It was fun, loving and well, swell! Thank you mates for taking me on board! (pun fully intended…)

And if this wasn’t enough – here are the rest of the photos – in the slideshow here
