Alphabetti Spaghetti Wedding Report
I'm not going into the details of how we met etc as it's all in the planning thread. I can't quite believe my thread got to 100 pages! I loved writing my thread and having so many of you join in on my journey. I can honestly say a few have you have become dear friends! I'm not one for mass writing either so this really will be a short but sweet account of the day. I'm still waiting for professional pics to arrive but I can start this with a few of the pics from early on in the day.
A little detail in case you didn't read my thread. Andrew and I wanted a day that represented the both of us. We wanted it to be quite relaxed but still traditional. We live in Barnsley in South Yorkshire even though I.m originally from North Wales and Andrew is from Barnsley, we decided to get married in Barnsley rather then going back to my hometown.

So two years ago, Andrew presented me with a plate of Alphabetti Spaghetti and proposed! Fast forward two years and I wake up in the hotel and it's 2:45am!!! Sack that off I'm going back to sleep but at 5:15am I'm wide awake once again and this time there's no chance of going back to sleep. I lay in bed for a while and if I'm honest I still wasn't excited. It hadn't really hit me that I was going to get married. In the few weeks leading up to the wedding I was was bored of waiting and as awful as this may sound I just wanted it over with. Not in a horrible way but two years was a long time to wait and I just wanted to become Mrs Gillis and start the next chapter of our lives.
I decided to have a long soak in the bath as I had plenty of time to go until I had to leave the hotel to be at our venue for 8am. At 6:30am I get a text off my MOH asking if I was awake and if she could come up to see me. A knock at the door and there's she's stood with a gift bag for me, she had put me a bag together of all my favourite bits...
