Given we're on honeymoon, most of you will have noticed that we're married, and thus the wedding is over. I must say, it's a weight off our minds, however I think I'm also speaking for both of us when I say we were really happy how everything went.

It's a learning experience, but one you probably only do once. Mostly, the issues that seemed big were actually little (who comes to the reception, what music plays as the bride walks down the aisle, etc) and fortunately none of the ones that seemed little ended up being big.

I was sick as a dog for the two weeks leading up the ceremony, but thanks to several visits to doctors and pharmacists, I was actually almost 100% on the wedding day. The weather had likewise sucked for the week beforehand and cleared up for our wedding day. No-one forgot anything important (rings, lines, etc), and plenty of photos were taken by both our official and unofficial photographers. I think I counted at least 6 x digital SLR's there.

The reception was great fun, lack of light over over the wedding table and air conditioning issues notwithstanding. The speeches were nice. The food was great and plentiful, and they even did a really good job of dealing with the gluten free and vegan requirements. In fairness to me however, I did sit them down and make it very clear that these were very important requirements for us, but still, whatever the cause, it all worked out pretty well from the feedback we got. The only drama was that we forgot to arrange vegan/gluten free cakes, and we're sorry about that guys, we'll make it up to you :)

Our friends (and family) are just awesome and were so much help. Big thanks from me and Elizabeth, especially to Stephie and Davyd Penguin, Dr Z and Kim.

Wedding planning continues.

I have groomsmen, x2

One of them is a woman.

Or Penguin, depending how you look at it.

Been doing weddingy-things today. It's kinda fun.

In our spare moments at work, we did some work on a guest list using a Google Documents Spreadsheet. It's nifty, since it updates in realtime as two people are working on it. Initial count is 127 people, which will probably have to come down a bit, since neither of our families are made of money. So, in advance, we're both sorry if we can't invite you to the reception, but you are all most welcome at the wedding ceremony.

Dropped by Cottesloe Civic Centre this evening after work. It looked nice, but we're not sure it's what we're after. Came home, had some dinner, did some web browsing of sites, and have been using a shared Google Notebook to store snippets on various venues.

Dropped over to uncle and aunt's house to swap Macbook Pro batteries and pick up a copy of their photos from the family engagement party. Turned out pretty well. To re-iterate, this is the family party. If you were thinking you were coming and missed it, you haven't - details are in this post, including date and time. Edit: Erk.. 58 people have RSVPed.

In more general terms, it's starting to get hot. This displeases me. My office at work gets really hot. Heat + randy peacocks = unpleasant office. Hopefully we'll be moving soon. We'll see how that goes.

So we're still in Singapore, but we leave the hotel to go to Hong Kong at like 2:30 tomorrow morning (so, 4 hours).

Since Singapore isn't all that big, and since we were here last year, we haven't really had cause to do touristy things or anything particularlly exciting.

So I decided to spice it up a bit and proposed to Elizabeth.

Those of you following the Elizabeth and Alex story since our early days of dating some 3 and 3/4 years ago will probably not be surprised that she said yes :-)
