Songbird's Wedding Day
I think it must be time to start my wedding report! I'm a bit concerned that it might be repetitive for those of you that have followed my plans leading up to the day, but I'll try to avoid that where possible.
For those of you that don't know me, this was my second marriage. My first husband let me down badly. When our children were older, I found the courage to divorce him and I thought then, that I would probably be on my own forever. Thankfully, I did meet my now husband, at a time and in circumstances that I least expected. He was recently widowed and, in those first few weeks of our meeting, we were a huge support to each other. My life in the last six years has turned around so dramatically. I have relocated to a different county, made new friends and found happiness that I feel so very fortunate to have.
From the time of our engagement I had a year in which to plan our Wedding. I loved every bit of it. From the outset I was determined to incorporate as many individual, handmade touches as possible. I made my own invitations, favours, orders of service, confetti bags, headpiece, place cards and seating plan, as well as lots of other things along the way. This time around, I didn't want a church wedding. We decided to have the ceremony and wedding meal at a famous coaching inn, The George Hotel, in the beautiful Georgian town of Stamford. We wanted the day to be very relaxed, where guests didn't need to worry about driving to different venues. Our house,being just a short walk through the town, meant that it was the ideal place for the reception in the evening.
