I'm Baaackkk!

Hello my lovely bloggers,

Well, TraderVic and I are back safe and sound from a wonderful adventure overseas... and it was indeed an adventure!

A Taiwanese wedding, a magical lake and being chauffeured around Taipei by a billionaire - and that was just the first week!

So, if you would like to read more about it, stay tuned over the next few weeks, while I catch you up on all my travel (and stitching) news - of course, if you follow me on FB, then you will have seen most of these pics (sorry!)

Let's begin with the wedding in Kaohsiung- the whole raison d'etre for the trip, really.  Just to remind you, our DS1 married his lovely bride here in Melbourne, nearly a year ago now, you can revisit that post, here, if you wish.  However, DDIL1 is a gorgeous Taiwanese girl, who wanted to have the Taiwanese wedding experience with her family and friends as well - and what an experience it is:  12 hour wedding photo shoot for the bride and groom (pre-wedding) involving at least five changes of outfits (for both bride and groom) and different hairstyles (for the bride); a tea ceremony the day before when the groom needs to perform a number of tasks to win the hand of his bride and then a full on 13 course wedding feast the following day at which the bride wore three different gowns and then after all that we went to Karaoke!  Wow! What a couple of days!


Today, I am going to show you some of the wedding shoot photos - they are quite stunning!









Anyway, I am going to leave you here for now, watch this space for further updates on our trip.

hugs,

Just beautiful , what a good looking couple .
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Wow, it's exhausting being a Taiwanese bride! Lovely photos of the happy couple.
It's a nice idea to wait a year for the second ceremony, there's longevity already LOL
