On Saturday 18th August 2018 I married my best friend. Just over a week later and I am still full of overwhelming emotions. I can honestly say that our wedding was everything I had ever hoped it would be and more, it was a day full of happiness and love. I don’t think I’ve ever smiled so much. As we sat after the official ceremony was over posing for pictures Oliver whispered to me ‘I can now understand why the queen had to get injections in her cheeks from all the smiling!’ And that was before the day had even begun!
We were fortunate enough to celebrate our wedding with all of our family and friends present. The weather remained dry and warm – this was of huge significance for us because our wedding was an outdoor garden venue. The day just floated by like were on some sort of cloud. In some way it seems like it went by in a bit of a blur – there is so much to take in that you could never possibly do so. But in other ways the day was so vivid – the excitement, joy and elation we both felt were truly unforgettable. It was such an incredible way to begin our married life together.
I plan on writing a few separate follow up posts in the coming weeks talking about everything in more details!
