My wedding

Some of my photos for people to peruse - found doing this therapeutic - feeling full of cold!!!

it was a lovely day - will keep adding to these as i get time!!!!

The wedding was at 3pm. it was a civil ceremony in the oriel House St. asaph. Even being ten years older than hubby I was very nervous and he was the calm, in control one!!! It was a blur from 2pm onwards as the photographer arrived and wanted some poses. Dad walked me downstairs to the terrace room where the ceremony took place. Walking in was magical - but i didnt manage to conceal my nerves at all.

The vows were lovely and hubby whispered that he thought i looked amazing which was very sweet - held hands throughout and everyone was laughing at my 16month son shouting hiya through the ceremony. Walked out to Queen's "your my best friend" and enjoyed a pimms cocktail b4 starting with the photos again.

The weather was glorious and everyone was chilling outside while the pianist played.

Sat down for a meal around 5ish - this was a highpoint i was starving by then - chicken and mango salad with lavander mayonnaise, beef wellington in madeira sauce followed by peach melba roulade and blueberry compote!! Heavenly!!! I drank too much wine and champagne and sat back to enjoy the speeches. My dad who hates public speaking was hilarious - saying "what's his name again?" about hubby which had everyone in stitches.

Hubby said very nice things about me and everyone enjoyed their scratchcard favours - well it was national lottery day!!! I won £2 on mine!!

Afetr the speeches i had around 10 minutes b4 the guests for the evening started to arrive! We discoed the night away.

Highlights - the kids were superbly well behaved and my 8 year old danced all night. Everyone raving about the service and food at the hotel. Stealing 10 minutes with hubby away from everyone. First dance - to lonestar "amazed" and Van morrison "have i told u lately". Can i say the whole day?????????????????????????????????????????
