I first really got to know Alysha & Riki at a wedding that wasn’t their’s. Nathan & Michelle got married back in May- and the 4 of them seem pretty tight.
Nathan & Michelle’s wedding was where I first saw that Alysha’s capable of 1 hand pushups (after a couple of drinks). Also got to see how Riki likes to have a good time.
After that night I could tell they were the kind of people who were going to enjoy their own day. Not stress about it being perfect- just enjoy being around the people they care most about. While most brides keep quiet in their room before the ceremony- Alysha was racing around in golf buggies. No concern for the hair dropping- just wanted to enjoy her day. Riki was just happy to know Alysha was having a good day. And then there’s their little boy Archie- the cutest little fella you’ll meet. Scared of me for a while- but got used to me soon enough (which was a relief). He’s the centre of their universe- and even on their big day he was right their with them through all of it. Spitting image of his dad.
Got to mention Michelle’s speech- which choked up everyone one who tried to read it. Each of the bridesmaid had a go- each developed a shake in their voice. Fun & emotional. Check.
Finally- just a big thanks to you both. Couldn’t have been made more welcome. Hope you love the pics and thanks for the bottle of Jimmy. ; ).
