Well it has taken a while for the dust to settle and get the energy up to write another blog post following our big day. I am happy to say that we had a wonderful day of what we can remember of it. As everyone says, it goes so quickly. We have both sat and discussed the day and do actually wonder if it happened. Very strange feeling.
It is so weird, it is as if we both have some strange amnesia. We both feel like we need to redo it just to experience it again. Despite this we did have a great time surrounded by our family and friends, had amazing weather and everything went fine (well sort of). I won’t lie, it was extremely hard work for those involved and we were shattered afterwards. Mister B and I didn’t stop from the Tuesday before the wedding until Monday afternoon. We felt like we drifted through everything with a big grin on our faces.Bit surreal but in a fun way. We were very very fortunate to have the support of our family and friends which helped no end. I think if we hadn’t had them helping out over the week before the wedding it wouldn’t have been such a slick affair
We really would like to thank everyone who helped out, came to the wedding, sent us cards, presents and their best wishes. We have received lots of beautiful presents and cards (some hand made which were amazing) but we are waiting for some further presents via John Lewis. We will be sending out thank you cards soon. 🙂
We have had loads of people feeding back about how much they enjoyed the day, which I have to say means a lot especially after all the work Mister B and I have put into it. We tried to make it as relaxed as possible, so people there didn’t feel uncomfortable. I have been to a few wedding where etiquette dictates everything and it can really put a damper on things.
Even though we have had to make arrangements from afar, everything we had made, collected and bought actually worked and I have to say I was a little bit teary when I saw it all come together especially after all the planning.
It was so hectic that I was unable to make some posts about the prep work including the restoration of the Hillman, the flower arranging and the night before. I would like to think that this blog was/is not just for our family and friends but also for brides/grooms to be. It is helpful to get ideas and recommendations from others especially when in a bit of a tiz about your nuptials.
So I will post more about the prep, the suppliers we used and what happens after the big day soon. In the interim here is a lovely photo that my cousin Ed took when we were stood at the aisle…
