My Dads Wedding

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

On the 7th of September, Me and 20+ of my family/might as well be members packed our suitcases and travelled from Manchester all the way to Coral Bay, Cyprus. It was a 10 day, all inclusive holiday with my Dad and Step Mums wedding marking the half-way point. To say that those 10 days were TOTALLY INSANE would be an understatement. When you're younger, you interact with people a lot differently, but being on this holiday gave me the opportunity to actually talk to people that in the past I've seen as "grown ups" and whom have seen me as a kid properly as a young adult. As a result, I feel closer with my Dad, my Auntie, my Nan, practically everyone that I was with. I know that it’s a holiday I’ll remember for the rest of my life and I love my dad for giving me that.
My polaroid by the sea in Paphos. as you may be able to see, Jasmine decided to stick her finger in front of the camera lens whilst she took it. I took A LOT of polaroids whilst in Cyprus but I have very few that actually worked out. The lighting during the day was obviously crazy bright so most of my photos are overexposed.

Again, in Paphos with Jasmine. I bought us these super yummy ice creams. I had a scoop of pistachio and scoop of Lion Bar whilst Jasmine had cherry and Kinder Bueno. It was actually a total disaster though because they just melted really, really fast in the heat. The weather was like 32 degrees celsius so really, I should of thought twice but I was so hot! 

From left to right: a pig, my handsome Father, my gorgeous Nan, my beautiful Auntie. Seriously, my Bridesmaid dress really wasn't flattering for me. It was so tight and as a top-heavy girl I just bulged. Not to mention, I could barely breathe.

This is Willow. She's my Aunty Corina's daughter. She's almost Three now which I find totally insane. I shared a hotel room with Corina and Willow which was very testing. Not because of Corina obviously, but because of Willow. A combination of her age, the sun, the late nights and the unfamiliar bedroom made her very, very cranky and prone to tantrums. Sticking Toy Story on proved to be the perfect antidote. Willow absolutely loved the pool. It seriously warmed my heart to see her so happy.

This photo looks candid but I assure you it was not. We were driving back down a mountain into Coral Bay after an amazing day out when we pulled up on the side of the road to watch the sunset. It was so beautiful. So many photos were taken. Its so lovely to look back at them now that I'm home and remember how breathtaking it was, especially when i was surrounded by my family.

Willow was also ecstatic at this little bird cage. 

This is a photo of me and Sasha hanging out in the kids pool. Me holding Sasha's daughter Ayva and and Sasha holding Willow. When I saw this photo once I was home i remembered that when Sasha was getting in, she thought the pool was a lot more shallow than it really was, so as she stepped in she totally fell. Once I established that Ayva was above water and unaffected, it was hilarious. As you can see, I soon took the baby to avoid any further accidents.

This is Willow and her small, creepy doll that my nan bought her in Paphos. She named her 'Little Willow' and developed a strange attachment to it.
