2 years ago today i was getting married. We had a very small wedding of nearest and dearest, only about 25 people. We played all our own music, had wonderful food and laughed the whole day. Thought i’d share a few pics with you, as this is the first time in 2 years i’ve properly gone through the photos,
(warning lots of pics here!!)
|His best man, his son Talyn|
|We had a really small but perfect service in the registry office, i cried, he shed a tear and we laughed as i fluffed my lines|
|my darling dad making the young bridesmaids laugh|

|The rain held off all day|
|kisses and laughs|
|anytime i’m grumpy i look at this photo, this is me the happiest girl in the world|
|and he looks pretty happy too|
|simple favours a mix of english and italian sweeties|
|amazing food & beers (But just lemonade for me)|
|My wedding present that morning from my husband to be, a beautiful amber heart necklace|
|no seating plans we all sat, chatted, drank and ate|
|my bouquet is my favourite flower, and only cost £20.00|
|Both families coming together|
|We had a chocolate slab cake from Asda for £6.99! Paul thought i was crazy funny for getting this instead of a formal cake but hey, i love me some choc cake!|
Well done you if you made it this far!!
Just a quick little explanation behind the whole thing..
Paul has been married previously (hence my lovely step kiddos) so we wanted something small, intimate and cheap. I felt our money was better spent on getting carpets and wall paper and sofas in our house than on just one day. Now, i know that’s not for everyone, and i totally understand, heck i love going to weddings, but this suited us. And this was our wonderful day.
Its funny not seeing Neo in these pics as he wasn’t here yet, it feels like he’s always been here.
However, he was in my tummy. I was actually 4 months pregnant on my wedding day. Controversial,lol!
We had originally booked to marry in Italy on Sept 7th 2010, but due to illness in the family and funds we cancelled it. I was broody, we were happy and decided to try for a baby thinking it could take a while. A month later i was pregnant. So in my mind, there was no time like the present, we got married 3 months later. We were having an unbelievably stressful time with our business (good riddance Mr back stabbing partner) so we went back to work the Monday after.
Now this may not seem ideal to most, but we were happy. Nothing mattered, And we still are.
6 years together and still going…. And here’s to many more years
Below is our play list from our ceremony. Mirrorball by Elbow is one of our all time favourite songs and i remember it vividly from the ceremony.
I’d be honoured if you listened.
Whilst you read this, we are away on a belated honeymoon, well a 2 day trip..
I look forward to catching up with you when i get back.
But in the mean time
