Wedding: Complete

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you'll already be in the know about this, but Rich and I finally got married on Friday 20th November. I pinkie promise that when I get the official photos all back I'll do a proper blog post about the day, the decorations, the suppliers etc. but this is just a little sneak peek.

I was simultaneously the most excited and the most nervous I'd ever been. Rich and I were both awake at 5am messaging each other because we couldn't sleep, and I woke my sister up by dancing and jumping around at her. It felt amazing getting my hair and make-up done professionally, and when I stepped into my dress at long last it didn't feel real.

Just before walking down the aisle, when the music started to play, I welled up, but I made the decision to be excited instead, and you can see on the pictures people have taken that I was beaming like a crazy person because I was finally getting to marry my soul mate.

The day went perfectly, I even got the snow of my dreams. The photographer shared this sneak preview pic of us in the snow and I love it so much.

We went on a mini-moon for a week to relax and recharge ourselves, and I had my first day back at work today. I love being married, but the only downside I've found so far is that changing your name is a complete nightmare. We're moving into military housing just after Christmas, so I know I've got changes of address to do soon as well. So much paperwork!

I've still got my blog post to write up about my fantastic hen do, and then there's all the Christmas ones to get going on. I'm sure you can imagine how busy I've been, and now that I've got to prepare to host Christmas for the first time, do all of my Christmas shopping, change my name on everything under the sun and move house, it doesn't look like it's going to calm down anytime soon. I'll do my best to try and keep you updated on it all though.

  1. So glad you enjoyed your perfect day, I can't wait to see the photos! 9 months and counting until my turn, you need to give me some tips on not crying, I'm worried I'm going to spend my entire morning blubbing and look like a mess by the time I see Simon!

  2. Congratulations!

    Can't wait to see your complete run down as I love the theme! :)
