Alison Davis and Joshua Unicomb were joined as one on January 26.
The bride woke to a glorious morning at Pinn Cottage.
Breakfast was shared with her dearest friends who bore the title of bridesmaid. They were all quite relaxed as they laughed together and chatted about the day ahead.
The day progressed, the bridesmaids were ready. Purple was the colour of their simple but elegant dress, they each carried a pink bouquet filled with peonies and roses. The little flower girls were ready also, wearing almost the same as the bride.
The ceremony took place at Grabben Gullen on a five acre property that Josh and Ali purchased and where they intend to build their home. There under the pine trees was a lovely setting. A raised platform adorned with fairy lights and flowers stood in front of the dam which was the perfect backdrop for photographs. Hay bales took the place of chairs and hessian formed a path that led the way down to where Josh nervously and excitedly waited for his bride.
The time had come: the bride arrived in a red 1970 Mach 1 Mustang. She was traditionally late with her something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe. Elegantly dressed in a champagne-coloured tulle gown, embossed with cream lace, her hair swept to one side with several twists of curl held together with a diamante comb and carrying a teardrop bouquet of purple and mauve roses, white lilies and lavender, she was supported by her father as she made her way down the aisle to Josh.
Standing together, the bride and groom joined their hands and said I do.
The reception was held at the Grabben Gullen Hall, it looked absolutely amazing. Tables were covered with white cloths, upon these were round wooden centre pieces and pine cones, tea candles accompanied mason jars filled with baby's breath, lavender and silver dollar leaves. The chairs were also decorated with white covers and a purple sash. There was chiffon draped across the ceiling, fairy lights highlighted the bridal table, but it was the backdrop of various flowers and vines that completed the adornment of the hall.
As soon as Josh and All were introduced as Mr and Mrs Unicomb they entered the hail and immediately had their first dance as husband and wife.
Afterward, while Ali was having that special dance with her dad, an invitation went out to all the fathers in the room to have as special dance with their daughters as well. The cake was cut, the formalities were over, now it was time for partying until the early hours of the morning.
