I am beyond excited to tell you the wedding photos are in! Lina & Tom have done an absolutely marvellous job, and if you'd like to view our wedding in all its glory (including an incredibly attractive face from me...I won't tell you which photo, but it's near the start of the ceremony section), you… Continue reading Times change and so must I.
This week, after four and a half years, I left my job. Not, I hasten to add, because I've gone full on 1950s and given up work as I'm now married, but because I have a very exciting new job, in a whole new industry, that I start tomorrow. Because why do one big thing… Continue reading The wedding – 2 weeks on
I thought you guys deserved a bonus post this week! The Boy and I were chatting about my last post, and wanted to show what it's like for a groom in the lead up to a wedding. So, while I was pampering, preening and packing, here's what The Boy got up to in the few… Continue reading Meanwhile, The Boy did his own preparations…
Today marks eight whole days since I married the love of my life, and it's been just wonderful. We went to Bath for a few days, where we walked around in the rain, drank tea and ate cake (or, in The Boy's case, bath buns), and generally had a lovely, relaxing time. Now we're back… Continue reading I married The Boy – 1 week on
Reader, I married him. And it was glorious!
Photo: Lara Blake Photography Holy Christ, I get married in less than a week. I know I've been doing a countdown every single week, and really should have seen this coming, but it's taken me completely by surprise. Someone, anyone, please assure me that this is entirely normal? I know I said no more spoilers,… Continue reading Why my mum’s giving me away at my wedding – 6 days to go
While the housework piles up (literally, in the case of the washing), and the table names remain unwritten because I'm sulking about not being able to do calligraphy (I mean, I've been able to do joined up writing for quite some time now - it should have been easy), I thought I'd take some time… Continue reading Wedding inspiration- 2 weeks to go
Eep, we're only three weeks away from the wedding. How the heck did that happen? Now the big day is almost here, I'm looking back on the planning process and realising how lucky we were (and still are). We have very talented and generous friends and family, who have very kindly offered us their time… Continue reading Inviting Invitations – 3 weeks to go
Sometimes, planning a wedding can be a bit overwhelming. There are so many things you need to consider, family (and friend) politics, such as "Oh, you can't sit X next to Y. But then you can't sit X next to ABCDE or F either..." (which begs the question, why are you inviting X at all… Continue reading In conversation with The Boy – 5 weeks to go
Yesterday by the day, and today by the date, marks one whole year since The Boy proposed, and brings us to single figures in our weekly countdown to the wedding. To celebrate, we decided to go back to Canterbury, to the same hotel where The Boy proposed (you can read more about that here), and… Continue reading Engagiversary – 9 weeks to go
