Married a week and happier than ever!

I'm so excited. We got married last friday (the 13th!) and I must say whoever said that friday the 13th is an unlucky day was talking rubbish. It was an amazing day.

The wedding itself was it a church in a village called bunny in Nottingham where my hubby is from. I cried myself down the aisle like a little girl but was reassured when my then h2b pointed out that my sister was crying more than me! That just made me cry even more. The emotion of seeing all of your family and friends together is so overwhelming it's the best feeling ever. My grandma wrote and read a reading which made the service even more special knwoing she'd wrote it for us. The vicar has even asked her if he can use the reading at another wedding he's conducting.

After the wedding we went back to the reception venue in an aston martin convertable, it messed my hair up (see head and shoulders shot of me on the photographers pics, what is going on with my fringe?!) I was lovely and warm but Hubby in the back without the heated seats turned up with a very windswept look. The reception was at Scalford Hall in Melton mowbray and they were so hospitable and the food was amazing. I barely touched any though through a mixture of adrenaline and being rushed of my feet mingling!

The evening do was immense, wish I had drank less though as I did feel a little rough the next day but had a brilliant time dancing away with our family and friends. The highlight of the evening do had to be my sister requesting the dj to play Tiffany, I think we're alone now. I think we pretty much cleared the dancefloor with our dance routine!

Anyway, I wish the day had gone on for another 12 hours as it was thes best day of my life (cheesy but hey, who cares)

    Congratulations! The photos are beautiful, and I love the colour scheme, its stunning, and your hair is gorgeous - might have to show your pic to my hairdresser as I'd like mine something like that!

  • Thanks! Yeh I loved my hair, it was highly amusing trying to find all of the hair grips out of it before going to bed! I think I'm still washing hairspray out a week later

    Aah lovely pics you look gorgeous! Bridesmaid dresses are lovely too. Enjoy married life xxx
  • Hi katieC2b.

    My dress is Carlotta from Caroline Castigliano. It's supposed to have a flower corsage type thing in ivory at the hip but it wasn't me so I had swarovski crystals put around it instead.

    Hi Gem

    many many congratulations, you look absolutely radiant in yor photos. They really are some of the lovliest I have seen.

    You look gorgeous in your gown. And I LOVE the bridesmaids dresses. Would it be cheeky to ask where they are from? Such a fab idea for adult bridesmaids, and mine are all worrying about lookng silly, i might persuade them with somehing like yours.

    Wishing you both much happiness and congrats again
