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.
I married The Boy – 1 week on
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

You can never have enough (wedding) cake – 7 weeks to go
Merry Christmas everyone (if you celebrate it)! I hope you had a lovely day. It was my last one as Miss Cooper, and it was ruddy marvellous. I ate too much, watched the Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special approximately 48 times, and spent some much-needed time with loved ones that I've neglected recently due to… Continue reading You can never have enough (wedding) cake – 7 weeks to go
Embracing my inner bridezilla – 21 weeks to go
This week, I've discovered a TV channel in the UK that shows Bridezillas, a reality show from the US that follows two high maintenance brides per week in the run up to their wedding. A guilty pleasure of mine since I first discovered it about 10 years ago, now I'm planning my own wedding it's… Continue reading Embracing my inner bridezilla – 21 weeks to go
Fun at Twinwood – 24 weeks to go
This week marks six months to go until our wedding, a thought which simultaneously thrills and terrifies me. We celebrated by attending the wedding of two very lovely friends, where well-meaning guests nudged us good-naturedly and said "Ooo, yours next!", little realising that I feel as though we've planned next to nothing and am beginning to… Continue reading Fun at Twinwood – 24 weeks to go
Should I be shedding for the wedding? – 25 weeks to go
We all have that one friend, don't we? The one who runs a gimlet eye up and down your body, mentally calculating your body fat percentage and silently judging you if you happen to eat a biscuit (or, as is more likely in my case, three biscuits) in their presence. The one who loudly proclaims… Continue reading Should I be shedding for the wedding? – 25 weeks to go
An ode to The Boy – 36 weeks to go
In the past couple of weeks, several people have said to me, "You seem really calm and relaxed about the whole wedding", therefore making me a) feel like I'm abnormal and b) stress out about the fact I'm not stressed (thanks Mum - I could have gotten your figure or your height [a lofty 5"4,… Continue reading An ode to The Boy – 36 weeks to go
Vintage-y goodness (and some sentimentality) – 39 weeks to go
Apologies if parts of this post don't make sense - I have just woken up from an afternoon nap (a combination of Sunday afternoon, a comfortable sofa and an earlyish start this morning), and am still trying to work out who and where I am. *Update: I actually started this blog before I went to… Continue reading Vintage-y goodness (and some sentimentality) – 39 weeks to go
