Takin’ Love by the Horns: PHOTOBOMB!

10 Oct

Firstly, let me just say that I never meant to get so far behind (I know, none of the Bees ever do). Life has thrown about a million things our way since our return from the honeymoon, including a new job in a new city, a potential promotion for Mr Big, a new car, and several very upsetting occurrences, and all of these things have made me realise that being married to Mr Big is a treasure that I, thankfully and luckily, get to enjoy every day. Now before this becomes sappy (wait, it isn’t already?), let me just continue with these recaps. Almost done guys!

 

Once the servings were done, Mr Big and I were overladen with gifts, from red envelopes filled with money to jewellery.

My Uncle Chung performed a “good luck ritual”, where you grab the red envelopes in a bunch and then wipe them down on the groom, passing on good luck, fortune and all that good stuff. This wasn’t captured on camera, but we got the resultant laughing aftermath.

It was then time for group photos, and unfortunately, a lot of them were photobombed. So a word of warning to you guys – pick a place that isn’t so contained, and ask people to move. Or else you get the following photos:

Papa Bighorn’s side of the family. There’s too much to name. Also notice the sitting man – he was in a lot of the photobombs.

My angst about the group photos went on for about a week or so, but in the end, there was literally nothing I could do. I didn’t know it was happening, and our photographers – who were lovely – weren’t really used to typical “formal” photos. And so, our formal photos weren’t exactly perfect. But every other photo we had during that time was.

And for some reason, there were lots of me:

Who else had their photos photobombed?

Next up, we eat lunch and take lots and lots and lots (etc.) of photos!
