‘True love is worrying about prickles in her dress’
– Phil, 2016.
It took him a year to say ‘I love you’ to Becky, but it seems to be easier now. Maybe it’s being with Becky the Speech Pathologist that helped Phil finally get those three words out. When he proposed at a random trivia night, dressed to the nines in his best shorts and thongs, of course Becky said yes. Because true love is true no matter the occasion or the footwear.
Fast forward to a day in November, a year in the making, and considerably more formal attire. Yesterday, on a small Mountain overlooking Brisbane, Becky and Phil got married (by Phil’s Dad!). Then we went hiking around the countryside, filling Becky’s gown with cobblers’ pegs and bugs and mud stains. ‘It’s okay!’ she said, ‘I don’t care about the dress, I’m not going to wear it again, but some of the prickles are sticking into my butt.’
Of course you wouldn’t guess from the images that we were being swarmed by flies or stuck by prickles or that ankles were rolling in the uneven ground (seriously, best bridal party – EVER).
The summery discomforts ain’t no thang. Yesterday was amazing.
de-prickling before heading back to the reception! It took all 8 of us but we got it done!
