We're home, a little later than planned, but home safely. A three hour delay in Sydney meant that we missed our connecting flights to Manchester and then the Island, so we had an extra night away! We stayed in Manchester and enjoyed a relaxing evening and morning in our hotel recovering from our huge journey. It began at about 11am Friday in NZ and ended about 6am Sunday NZ time. We actually finally made it back to our own home at about 6am Monday NZ time!
It's cold and wet! The wind was blowing all night long and guess who couldn't sleep? So, I spent some time sorting out photos and doing a few other jobs.
I thought you might like to see a few more wedding pictures.

Just one of the reasons I love him! ;-)
We took a stroll through the expansive gardens, stopping here and there for a photo.
Lee was in charge of the camera. Thank you Lee. XX
A very special lady, Tony's (Grand Mother) Nanny. She was born here in Britain and moved to NZ after the war.

Thank you to every one who has commented while we were away especially those who left good wishes before and after our wedding, you helped to make the day special too.
I have loads more pictures to show, you'll see them in the next few days.
I came home to a pile of mail including two very special packages. More about that next time.
