I am MRS COLE!! 19-12-2009 - I married my soul mate -
OK well here is my wedding report, please don't look at my spelling or anything like that!!
The Thursday before the wedding it snowed, it was beautiful to look at. But when I woke up at 3.45am on Friday morning - I couldn't sleep I was far too excited, I went down stairs and watched The Grinch, and looked at the snow falling, I didn't think anything of it. But when Steve got up he had a panic attack, saying I don't know what we are going to do.
There wasn't anything I could do I had planned it so much that I couldn't control the weather. So on the Friday I had it planned that we would go to the venue to drop off the table decorations. So we packed the car up, and set out for Maidstone. For us to be stranded on the M20 for 4 hours.
At this point it was still snowing, I had Steve telling me that he was worried, and I was trying to be a brave girl and say "It will all be ok". But I wish I had turned my phone off. I had family members calling telling me they didn't want to come out in the snow. The vintage car I had, called and said they wouldn't come in the snow, the Harpest didn't want to carry the harp in the weather incase it got broken. It wasn't going well. We dropped everything off at the venue, and went to make our way home. At that point I had to turn my phone off I couldn't take any more, I was in tears the day before the wedding, getting stuck on the way home, we knew we couldn't ask people to come to Maidstone with the weather this bad, there would be accidents. We were going to call off the wedding reception, and plan it again. It was hard to say it out loud, but there was no way people were going to make it there.
We got home to talk to our parents about it all. They told us not to be silly, that it would be fine, and that if it doesn't snow Friday night it will all go ahead fine. So I booked another car, to take us, just in case, I sorted out a CD for the venue and we went for our rehersal at the church.
This was the most magical thing I have done, we had the rehersal with our friends and family, It made me so nervous, and it also made me feel that nothing else matters, I was going to say my vows, I was going to marry the man of my dreams and the rest can or can not happen. It didn't matter.
So Steve came back to the house with me, my sister, and one of my bridesmaids. He got all his stuff sorted, and then went to stay at his friends. I went to my aunts, we all live in a little village in Kent, so all my mum's brothers and sisters went there for dinner. It was great the night before to have them there.
THE BIG DAY 19TH DECEMBER 2009.
Its the most surreal thing getting ready. I slept like a log, After dinner with my very large family, I came home watched Father of the Bride, and fell asleep, hoping the snow would keep away.
I got woken up by my Best friend, She was in the room with me, and said that the alarm had gone off, and that I had to get up!!
My Hair dresser Mel turned up and Jackie my make up girl, so I knew that you could get in and out of the village. There were banners all over the house, and ballons, with Congratulations on your wedding day out side.
The girls all got there make up and hair done, I don't have any pic of me getting it done yet, as I don't have any pic off the phototgrapher Darren, so I will show you the ones of my Bridesmaids, you will see that we were Gok, I think we needed him. So here are some pic of them.
I had my dad phone the car they said they could pick me up from a local Toby Carvery, So my car that I had booked took my bridesmaids.
Here are so Pic of me putting on my dress. All of the Pic are what my sister took,
