So thursday consisted of me doing our wedding cake and helping my then hubby to be decorate our bedroom (multi-tasking lol) that took alllllll day to do, by 11pm we were both sat in bed with a takeaway! I was getting ready for my very busy day on friday, no relaxing for this bride!

Friday the 14th August (1 day to go!)

Up early with a busy day ahead, first stop was my sisters for my nails and stupid spray tan (never again!) that took longer than expected so put us behind schedule by about 2hrs :/ when i got back home i had all the buffet food to cook, that was a task n half! Managed to get about half done before it was time to walk my fiance down to my stepdads were he'd be staying for the night, just as we were leaving his sister and niece from Ireland turned up so we ended up roping them into helping carry all his stuff  many hands make light work!

Picked up my Moh and Flowergirl and had them help me carry all my stuff from my mums back to mine.. no time for relaxing though with the rest of the buffet food still waiting to be cooked. Finally got that all finished by about 11:30p, jumped in the shower then set about ironing the last bms dress, plugged in th iron, waited for it to heat up then started.. only went and burnt a hole in it! I could've cried  but turned the iron down and carried on, hung it up and got into bed, finally settled down and went to sleep about 1am! Slept like a baby until i woke up at 6:30am

    Went downstairs to wake up my Moh but she was already up so we headed down into the kitchen to start chopping up all the salad and making the sandwiches, my mum and brother came round at 8am and carried on with the sandwiches while i started to fetch all the decorations, gifts and other food down out of the attic.

    It was just waiting for my hubby to be and his best man to come with the cavalry to help take everything up to the golf club and get everything set up. Got it all done and sorted and i was back home by just after 12pm.. heres a couple of pics of the venue decorated.

    I felt like a princess!!

    Almost time to leave.. Eeeek  The bridesmaids all called for taxis and started to leave, the last one took ages and they ended up having to call for another one! That meant i was hanging around all nervous until they left lol seemed like forever!

    Finally the last of the bridesmaids left and i got into the car with my Stepdad... I was fine all the way into town (about a 15 min drive) until i saw the Reg office come into view then my heart was in my mouth lol OMG i was about to get married!

  • A quick snap outside the Town Hall with my Stepdad before we went in..

    Once we were in the side room i went in for my mini interview with the Registrar, she asked if i was nervous and i actually wasnt at all, but then on the way out i fell into the door! Lol whoops haha..

    All ready to make my entrance!!

    We went back inside for the speeches after those as Chris's Best Man had to leave early.. it was nice to hear what people thought about us

    After the speeches it was time to hand out the gifts, i passed them to chris as he called out peoples names, after the last one he thought he was done but noooo i had a gift for him 

    It was Lovers stars certificate, 2 stars up there side by side, one named after him and one named after me in my married name.. He absolutely loved it!! He must have spent about about an hour going round everyone flashing it off bless him lol he felt abit guilty though because he didnt get me a gift but it was ok, all i wanted was him 

    We had and hour or 2 to mingle and have fun.. here are some of the photos from the Selfie booth and stuff..
