Valentine's Day Wedding Anniversary - Happy Memories

By LynneJoyce  
Garrath and I married on Valentine's day 1995 in the Little White Wedding Chapel, Las Vegas Nevada. It is not an anniversary that one can easily forget so this year, five and a half years after his death, I have decided to revisit the happy memories we made together in some of our favourite places.

Obviously the opener was not taken by either Garrath or myself but it does commemorate the day nicely. V1 was taken by Garrath on his iPhone. The rest are mine taken with various cameras and were taken variously in Spain, Lanzarote, the USA and the UK.

I don't have many photos of Garrath because, like many photographers, he hated having his photo taken and would grimace horribly if he spotted me trying. That is why so many of these shots of him show him engaged with his camera. It was after one of his face pulling antics that I labelled V2 because the subjects' expressions matched perfectly.

It has been a very positive experience putting this set together. I hope that you enjoy at least some of them.

Beautiful memories Lynne. Time goes so quickly yet so slowly.
5 and a half years already, but then Rob is already dead 4 years. We only have memories to hold onto, I look at our holiday memories every time I feel lonely which is often.

How nice of you to share these happy memories with us, and revisiting them must be tinged with both sadness and joy, hopefully the latter predominantly.
I share Garrath's dislike of being photographed but you do have one or two nice ones of him.
I send my best wishes on this anniversary.

Such wonderful memories, Lynne and what a gorgeous outfit for a gorgeous bride.
The years will take away our youthfulness but never our memories.

Wonderful memories shared with us here, Lynne, mine are of our trip to Venice for the Carnival back in February 2012, when we met up with Lillian and Moira 👍🏻 V12 is a great portrait of the man himself 😃😃

You both look gloriously happy and the love shines through on the images and your narrative Lynne. I'm glad putting all of these images together has helped.
