Teepee fun in the Lake District - my 26th July 2014 wedding!!
I love reading wedding reports and real life wedding blogs so it feels great to be able to do a little one of my own! My husband to be and I met five years ago at a rock climbing wall in east london. I was a bit disillusioned with romance and had been on a few fairly rubbish dates so had decided to try a new tack of just getting on with my life and doing the things I enjoyed. At some point, romance would drop into my lap. And it did! Well, to be more specific, it nearly kicked me in the head when h2b came down the climbing wall a little too fast. That first day we met, we chatted and belayed each other on the wall and I knew straight away that it he something different, I felt like id known him for ever.
Fast forward a by more climbing dates and we eventually moved our meetings out of the climbing wall ad into the pub! And that was that really. We both share a love of travel and the outdoors and have enjoyed some great experiences in India (where half my family come from) and in Africa (h2b lived there for a year after uni)
The proposal came the day before my birthday last december- I had been sent out of the flat to have a manicure and massage as my birthday present and, when I came back, the living room had been transformed into a little romantic 'restaurant' with the kitchen table having been moved into the living room( we just bought our flat so don't have much furniture yet!)
Between the main course and the dessert, he got down on one knee and popped the question with a gorgeous sparking diamond, and we spent the rest of the evening skyping family and drinking prosecco! We knew we didn't want a long engagement so the date is set for 26th July 2014 and the place is a teepee in the Lake District.i just hope the rain gods stay well away on this day!
