A White Wedding - 19th May 2018
It is now only 4 months until my wedding day, so I have perhaps left it a little late to begin a thread but as things are now really gaining pace it will be nice to have a record of these manic last few months.
Now for the cheesy bit - Callum and I went to the same boarding school. He was two years older than me and I was his shadow, following him everywhere. After he left school I didn't hear from him again until 32 years later, when he emailed me out of the blue. Callum is from Hereford and I am from mid-Wales, I moved to Devon years ago and when Callum emailed me it turned out he now lived just 20 miles away. We met up and here we are now 18 months later planning our wedding. Callum proposed a year last Christmas, by May I had done nothing toward getting married (but thought about it all the time) mainly because I felt too old for a church white wedding but really didn't want anything else. I am a church goer, I have never married and still had my girlish daydreams of a traditional white wedding.
I decided the sensible thing to do was to pop off to the registry office and get married. I just wanted to be his wife. But Cal made me sit and talk to him about what I really wanted, I felt so foolish wanting a proper wedding but he reassured me that I could do what I wanted and be damned the haters! Within days I was a full-time pinterest and wedding forum addict. And so the White Wedding planning began...
