Our Cookie Cutter English Summer Wedding - The Report

So my planning thread died a death after the implementation of the new website here at Y&YW. 

I just couldn't get used to the new format and I was so very busy in the run up to the wedding that I ended up posting on a Facebook group instead. 

I'm hoping that this will help me relive the day as serious wedding blues have kicked in and don't seem to be easing up. 

I've really enjoyed catching up on all of your special days.

    Such a stunning venue, I remember your planning thread - am I right in thinking your venue meant a lot to your family?

    Well remembered, yes, it was a place I visited quite a few times with my late Dad and he loved the building and it's history. I really felt like he was with me on the day so it was lovely.

    To say the last couple of weeks leading up to the wedding was stressful was a bit of an understatement, some of you will remember that we knew the venue would be covered in scaffolding for our day so we would use the back of the house. Well I'd seen a couple of pictures in the run up and it was a little worse than I was expecting. 
    We had a meeting with the venue who really put my mind at rest and allowed us complimentary use of the main state room at the venue for our wedding breakfast. It was the room we originally wanted but to be brutally honest we just couldn't afford it. 

    I walked out of the venue and just burst into tears I had worked myself up into a real state about the whole thing but after the meeting everything started to get exciting instead.

    Nothing really happened whilst I was still at work. I ended up having some fairly intensive MS Treatment in February which meant I was off work for a few weeks. I ended up doing lots of my DIY in that period as I knew I wanted to get it all sorted. 

    The weekend before was mainly finishing off some little bits and having my hair died and coloured. I also spent some time getting the house ready as I'd be hosting the bridesmaids the night before the wedding.

    Thursday 25th July - 2 Sleeps to go 

    This was the day all the prep started. It was so incredibly hot. Sat on the tram on the way home from work it was so surreal and bits were sweating that I didn't even know I had. 
    First up on the beautifying itinerary was my eyelash infill, then onto my nails. I opted for a short almond shape with blush/gold glitter.

    I felt ready, but I was like this ball of nervous energy that just wanted to shout from the rooftops that after 11 years we were finally getting married and I was going to be a wife. 

    At this point I'd decided to stop worrying about the weather. What better place to get married when the weather is rubbish than a building that has more rooms than days of the year.
