    The low down shot of LJ on the sand gets my vote for a calendar pic. :)

    Oh yeah, I got married. :shifty:

    It was an amazing day, very relaxed and personal. :icon-biggrin:

    We got to Tassie a few days before the wedding and we hired a ute (or pick up truck if your not in Oz)

    Not a bad thing to drive but visibility at the front is terrible so I would hate to drive one off road. The edges of the bonnet actually slope up! :doh:

    We got everything setup the day before the ceremony and I finished it off on the morning of the big day.

    As we wanted all our guests to be able to have a good drink and not have to worry about driving, we booked a big coach and had a few pick up points in and around the city. :icon-biggrin:

    The ceremony went very well and we had about 75 family and friends there with us. :dance:

    After the ceremony we had an hour with our guests where we drank a few slabs of beer and a dozen bottles of champagne. :obscene-drinkingbu:

    Then everyone got back on the coach and went the 5 minutes up the road to Brookfield where we had the reception in an old apple shed.

    With a free bar and plates of pizza coming in regularly thanks to our awesome wood fired pizza guy.

    There were lots of pissed people having an amazing time!

    A few short speeches and lots of alcohol later and it was midnight and the coach was there to pick us all up!

    It was a bloody awesome day and night and everyone had such a great time. :clap:

    No need Clive, all is well. Ben is still welding things together on the RJ thread so nothing's changed. :)
