Hi Friends!

This is basically the reason why I have been so quiet for the past few months. Apart from work, I was always busy with wedding preps, arranging this and that... so now I can breathe easier, the wedding is over... but the journey as man and wife has just begun.

Here are some pictures taken on our wedding day.

Morning:
Pic 1 - Adeline and I at her parent's.
Pic 2 - Adeline and I arriving at my parent's.
Pic 3 - The traditional tea ceremony, Adeline and I offering tea to my parents as a sign of respect and my parent's acknowledging us being husband and wife.
Pic 4 - As Adeline is a Catholic, I'm buddhist by birth, we had a simple church wedding ceremony too
Pic 5 - Father Albert preaching

Wonderful photographs!

Marvin and Adeline, may you have many happy years together!

Marvin, I can see why it was so important for you to have the "official" wedding in your home country, surrounded by your family and long time friends.

Big hugs to both of you!

Thanks Lyn, it was a joyous but busy busy day for all of us...

Luckily I have my brother who helped arrange and manage the events that evening, as well as cousins and friends who took up the task as wedding car driver, helpers, dinner receiption, photographer, etc.

Even with all the careful planning, we still forgot to bring the 2 bottles of champagne that evening, and my aunt had to drive home and bring them back to the restaurant in time for the toast!

What a day! LOL!

Congratulations to you and Adeline and so many days of happiness to come.

Did we tell you that you may have to switch to watercolour portraits now ?
It's definetly a must to portrait your beautiful wife (portraits of the couple are accepted as well) :evil: ;) :evil:

All the best to you.

Chatted to Marvin last night msn.. ;) His last day in Aussie land and he heads off home tonight..

He has had a ball, and say one week was definitely enough for Tasmania, he says it is just awesome and beautiful there!!

Andrea Adeline doesn't paint, but she loves to shop and cook.. ;)
