My bohemian wedding planning thread
Enjoying reading all the wonderful planning blogs and hoping I can match up with some of our plans!
Two starcrossed lovers
H2B and I met 7 and a half years ago. I almost want to skim over the meeting, as it was in a dingey nightclub in my home town. I was with some girlfriends, he was on the dancefloor, and as I was too shy to go over to him (I still maintain I am punching above my weight). A friend pushed me in to him, and we danced a little. He brought me a drink, and a I sang him Mr Brightside by the Killers. I don't think it was the singing that did it, but we did exchange numbers!
From there we dated a bit, but I was off to Africa to do some travelling. After becoming really close in the spring before I set off, we kept in touch while I was away. I knew this was something pretty special, so when I was given the chance to stay longer in Africa, I chose to come home. A decision I haven't regretted once. I knew I needed to get back to the UK if I was to keep this one!
I then went to Uni (another relationship hurdle). He came up to visit regularly and soon became closer to my new Uni pals than I was! I would persuade him to stay on an extra night on a Sunday, and he would have to leave at 5am on the Monday to get to work. The gates to my Uni halls would be closed - on occasion he would have to drive across the playing fields to get out and on to the motorway. Wow. This must be love......
We got closer and closer through my Uni years. He even moved up to be with me in the third year. We didn't move in together, he moved in with some of our male friends, but this was another decision that cemented the 'this is the one' thoughts I had already been having.
When Uni was over (still miss those days!), we moved in together. We’ve had some fantastic times travelling, which is a passion of both of ours. Thailand, Morocco, Italy. These have really provided some special memories for us to share – and cements our relationship. Travelling is best shared with the person you love.
I won't go in to much more detail, as I don't want ya'll to be ill, but I can well and truly say that this man is the most amazing person I have ever met, who brings out the best in me.
