Family Hardie Portrait Edited (164)

This is actually a pre-marital photo of my eldest nephew & now neice who have many happy anniversaries ahead of them! Christopher is a bit of a traditionalist so he'd probably choose from the first column for their anniversaries & I think Sian from the modern, but either way, they'll have some lovely presents from each other.
