Ashleigh's Girls Weekend Away (Hens Party)!!

I have to share some lovely photos from our daughter's weekend away with all her friends before she gets married in just over two weeks .... plans and arrangements are all in hand and we are praying for beautiful sunny weather for an outdoor wedding ....  18 of us spent a gorgeous weekend in a house overlooking the beach at Hyams Beach on the South Coast of New South Wales .... absolute bliss!!   Nothing like a bottle of French champagne and a swim to start off the weekend !! 

Some of the girls bought these little dress ups so everyone would know Ashleigh was about to get married! 

It was lovely to walk down the garden steps to the beach ... although the water was a bit cool!! 

We all enjoyed a gorgeous lunch at the Hyams Beach Cafe on Saturday ! 

This is Ann (Ashleigh's soon to be mother in law), me, Ash and Nadia (our eldest son Sam's girlfriend).

It looks like the party was in the kitchen at some point in time ....

Saturday afternoon getting ready to play a game of beach cricket !

There seems to be a lot of wine in these photos !!

Gorgeous flowers for a beautiful girl !

Sunday morning tea on the deck ... blissful ... and Ann makes a great banana cake !!   Just over two weeks to go ... I'm not quite sure where the time has gone since they came running through the front door in April and announced they were getting married !!   Fun times ahead !!

  4. That was a beautiful way to spend a weekend with some lovely girls, fantastic spot too. You must be all getting very excited. It will be a gorgeous day on the 1st, it's the first day of summer. 22 years ago it was 38 degrees on the 1st of December, way too hot for getting frocked up into my wedding dress, hope it's not that hot for Ash.

  5. What a lovely spot for a special occasion
