Twelve years down the line and a laid back country wedding -The Report
I'm not sure that anyone on here will know me as I think most of the girls with whom I chatted have all moved on and I wasn't very active on here in the past few months.Never the less, I've always enjoyed reading the reports so have decided to put one together I wont go in to all the ins and outs of how the husband (how weird hes no longer h2b!) and I met, nor the planning as I had a separate thread for that and I don't want to bore you all to death! So I shall start with a couple of days before the wedding....
Our wedding date was sat 8th August and I finished up from work on the Wednesday. Later that evening my parents arrived from France, with our 2 children who had spent the previous fortnight with them. It was so great to see them all...but still didn't feel like we were getting married in a couple of days. I kept waiting for the stress or nerves to hit, but they never did.
The venue we had chosen was a couple of hours drive away, so we were staying in a hotel nearby on the Friday and in fact had to be up there by mid day to pay the caterer, so Id always known that Thursday would be a busy day. I spent the day making decorations, doing jam jars, packing, having my nails done and then Thursday evening, when we finally settled down we thought we'd better choose the music for the ceremony...nothing like leaving things to the last minute eh?! It took us all of 5 minutes! I had already chosen the strings version of A day like this, Elbow, (which I absolutely love) to walk down the aisle to. Then for when we were signing the register we chose Birdy, Wings; Primal scream, moving on up; In my life, The Beatles and Signed sealed and delivered by Stevie Wonder for when the deed was done
