Graduation, a VERY picture heavy post!

So this is it, university is finally over. My graduation on Monday started off very rainy but ended up sunny and warm, lovely for my parents, not so great for me sweltering away in my robes. I swear those things are like ovens! Apologies for the picture heavy post but it is easier for me to send this link round to all of my relatives than email all of these photos ;)


Luckily Mark graduated on the same day as me so we got to take our photos together which was nice. He got a BSc Hons in Physics... he is far too brainy!


Some of my coursemates waiting for our department photo...



Obligatory hat throwing shots...


I think this may be my favourite part of the day, my parents bought me a Warwick graduation bear and he is seriously the cutest thing ever, you can see how excited I was! 


Mark's family and me.

My parents, who do you think I look more like?


Mark and certificate...



More hat shots!


Bachelor Bear off on an adventure with the Koan in the background...


Just look at his little mortarboard and scroll!





Mark and (some of) my family.

I call this my 2.2 hat! ;)
I had a really lovely day and I will show my outfit and food (it is worthy of its own post!) in another post as this is already far too many photos for one blog post! It was so nice to spend the day with Mark and it was a fitting goodbye to a wonderful three years. 

How did you celebrate your graduation?

Ahh I love that your shoes match the colour on your hood part of the gown! Such co-ordination ;) I also notice the colours are quite similar to Liverpool Uni's, pink for arts and blue for science is it? It's lovely that you got to graduate with Mark too :)

Emma said...

Aw, congratulations! Lovely shoes. :)

(Ha, I'm also watching! WATCH-ALONG!) x

Amy said...

That is some FANTASTIC co-ordination! I love that your shoes match your hood!

It's weird seeing Warwick on blogs. I forget that other people go there too, heh.

Congratulations on your graduation. You are brilliant!

YAY congrats lady!

You so look like your mum more :) x

Danielle said...

Congratulations, Maria! Gowns and caps make everyone look so grown-up and intelligent, I'm jealous! Your dress and shoes look lovely, and so well co-ordinated with your hood.

I wish I'd graduated this year, Scotland's four-year system seemed such a good idea in sixth form...

Emily said...

Congratulations Maria! You look lovely, really like your shoes. Seeing everyone's graduation posts makes me sad that mine was 2 years ago today, it's gone so quickly. Glad you had a lovely day although I remember being boiling in the robes so feel your pain about sweltering in them!xx

Congratulations, hope you had a fun day, it was definitely a bit of a whirlwind for me. Love how you coordinated the shoes. Wish I could've got a photo with our whole course but we were all so scattered about!
