Sneaky Peek : 50 Years


This Sunday we are celebrating my Mum & Dad – Ross & Val Gibson’s 50th Wedding Anniversary!  What a feat – 50 years of happy marriage!

There have been numerous emails pinging between my siblings to organise a community celebration.  Cath took the lead initially with a list of duties to be completed.  My duties included designing the invitation (see below), organising newspaper advertisements and writing the speech.

I love these photos and I used to pour over them for hours when I was a child.  I also love Mum’s stylish dress (which she made herself) and her classic headpiece and veil.  When we were kids we used to put on her veil and dress and dream of the day we would be married!  Check out the photographer with his ‘high-tech’ gear in the photo above.

I am looking forward to spending a family weekend together, celebrating such an amazing milestone!

    Wow- what an amazing milestone! Love those photos and the dress and veil, the photographer and his gear (no iphones there) plus the car in the background. Hope you all, but especially your parents have a fabulous get together.
