Our August wedding with a Moroccan twist report
It has been a few months since our wedding but I have finally found some time to write a wedding report for the most amazing day I have ever had! Between family issues, lots of work and finally being able to start decorating our house, this is going to be one of the first times I've really had to relect so I'm excited!
Right, so I shall start from the beginning...
The day before the wedding my husband left to go to his Mum and Dad's house where he got ready the morning of the wedding. That eve he went out for a quite drink with his best man and a couple of good friends whilst I was joined at home by my MOH and a bridesmaid. We had a really chilled out eve eating chocolate and watching 27 dresses. It was lush! I went to bed around 12 and before I knew it it was 6am and I was raring to go!
So the morning of the wedding we enjoyed fresh fruit and croissants and were joined by my husbands sisters and my Mum. Before I knew it it was time to load the cars with our dresses and head off to the venue.
Tip: Don't give yourself too much to do in the morning of the wedding. Relax and enjoy it.
We drove down to the venue and were met by Claire and Emily who were co-ordinating the day for us. Our florist was also there already and I was so excited to see our flowers! I still to the this day can't believe how much I was in love with our flowers! They really were beautiful!
We took all of our things upstairs to the huge gorgeous dressing room we then went to have a nosy around the the barn and the grounds to see how it was all coming along.
I literally had nothing to worry about, the tables were coming together nicely, there was someone out mowing the lawns and tending the gardens and the outside seating was being arranged.
Tip: Although all b's2b all have a plan as to what they want their day to look like, trust your venue! If they are setting up for you or you have decorators coming in they really know what they are doing. Even if it is not exactly how it was in your head, it will look fab!
As we made our way back the barn my amazing friend and photographer arrived. He (Tom) was with us girls during the morning as we were getting ready and his assistant Liam was with the boys. We made it back up to the dressing room to find my lovely hair and make up ladies setting up and my excitment levels sky rocketed to a new level!!
