The sun shone as we gathered at St Peter and St Paul's church in Aylesford last Thursday, eagerly awaiting my niece Leah's marriage to her handsome fiance Gary. As she stepped into the church on her father's arm, she looked absolutely radiant in her beaded gown and I couldn't help but wonder if someone had waved a magic wand during the night, turning my pretty little niece into such a beautiful woman ...
Celebrating this lovely young couple's union and commitment with my family and seeing the pride in my sister Fiona's eyes as her daughter confidently shared her happiness and love for her new husband, was a true privilege and very, very, special to me.
Leah and Gary,
I wish you enough kindness for a long and happy life together.
There's no doubt, you two were made for each other.
With much love from,
Your very proud

I am happy to say Leah's childhood dream of becoming a beautiful princess on her wedding day came true for her ... check out this picture of her, aged about three, playing with her 'Barbie bride' in my living room!
