A golden day

I mentioned Les and Marg on the blog a week or two ago, who have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. We threw a small gathering to mark the very special occasion by way of a 1960s wedding reception...hosted at Andreas and Danielle's home, with instructions to dress appropriately.  What a fun afternoon as hippies and vintage arrived!  
We decked the happy couple out in a bowtie and veil and took some pics outside before heading in for the solemnities...
Grant played a wedding march; Rene gave a speech and Matt prayed... 
...and then we took the whole group outside for a photo.  Cynthia lent me a bridesmaid dress that she wore in 1959 - the pink number was quite something!
Hats, oo-la-la!
Ryno and Marianne styling, man!
Cynthia, what a darling lady - she has several hats and items from her younger years which are all hugely in fashion right now - if only we could convince her to bring them out more often!  Loved this pink Jacqui-O creation.
Olive and Joan produced this marvellous wedding cake, and everyone else brought a plate of eats.  Much to be thankful for ;)
Chrissy pulled out her beautiful voice and blessed us with a song item.  Wow, this lovely lady can sing!!
Les and Marg cut the cake - then Les gave a short speech which had us in stitches. 
We were also thrilled to watch their wedding video and have a look through their album.  Marg was a gorgeous 19-year-old bride!  We pray that the Lord would grant them many more happy years together.
