My intimate Christmas wedding
I didn't do a planning thread but I thought it would be nice to write down how everything went on the day.
First, some background. My husband and I (it feels strange saying that!) discussed how we'd like our wedding before we even got engaged and decided that a small, intimate family wedding would be perfect for us. My husband has the travelling bug so we decided the honeymoon was just as important as the actual wedding day so we split the budget straight down the middle - half for the wedding and half for the honeymoon (I refused to do the proper travelling thing, staying in hostels etc (it is our honeymoon after all ), hence why we needed to spend half of the budget there). Anyway, I didn't have to wait long for the proposal, where he recreated our very first date.
Picking a venue was a little difficult due to the type of wedding we'd decided to have - with immediate family only plus ourselves, only 16 people would be attending. We picked The Four Seasons, Park Lane London in the end, which was absolutely perfect for us. They offered everything you'd expect and more, despite the small size of our wedding.
