Our Engagement Party – Summer Garden Party – August 2011

Hey Everyone … So this time last year Perry and I celebrated our Engagement with our family and friends in my parents garden … the weather was wonderfully warm … and we were so happy so many people could make it that day … and with our Wedding Celebration Party only a couple weeks away now I thought I’d share some of the photos from that day …

The run up to the party got pretty stressful at times … my parents decided to re-landscape the garden in time for the party … something I didnt think was necessary and would only add to the stress … but I have to admit in the end it turned out beautifully … there were a few moments where we weren’t sure if it was going to be finished in time … and lets not even talk about the stress involved with building the shed …

But in the end everything came together … friends and family in the last few days running up to the party all chipped in to help … and my cousin Pouneh and her husband Majid were in town visiting at the same time … so was great to have them there too …

Anyways we had a great evening … even if we did end up spending alot of time going round speaking to loads of different people … more so for Perry who was meeting alot of our family friends for the first time that evening … poor thing hadn’t really been initiated into Iranian style parties before …

We really enjoyed it … and as its only about 2 weeks till our Wedding Celebration Party … (again in my parents garden) … we are really looking forward to celebrating again with all our family and friends … especially those who couldn’t make it to the Engagement party … we are expecting more people this time round …

I really hope the weather holds out this year … although my Dad isnt taking any chances and has sorted out a Marquee to cover most of the garden … you know … just in case …

Anyways … hope you enjoy the photos … most were taken by our good friend James, and others were taken by myself and family/friends at the party …
