    We did it!

    Here's how it went :)

    So my chief BM and I checked into the hotel on the Friday afternoon, spent some time in the Jacuzzi and spa before having room service dinner, very indulgent!
    Went to bed about 11 but hardly slept, couldn’t seem to get comfortable and was worried about oversleeping.
    Hair and make up lady was about 10 minutes late but she soon set to work, it all went so fast as my mum and step sister appeared and various family members popped in and out

    We were a bit behind so I was getting a bit edgy and snappy but eventually it got to 2.30 and decided it was time to get my dress on. All was going fine until something stabbed me in the leg! Gran discovered there was a pin lodged in between the layers and had to get her sewing kit to get it out! By this time it was 3pm and so i was going to be late! Luckily hair and make up lady continued on as we had the fight with the dress so we got out of the hotel room at 3.10. Spoke with the registrar, then it was time! The quartet started and I couldn’t stop shaking as i went down the aisle after my bridesmaids, Jon grabbed my hands and kept telling me it was OK as I have never shook so much in my entire life!
    The ceremony went so fast but was so perfect for us, readings were spot on and the music we chose for signing the register.

    We came back up the aisle to a special arrangement of “i believe in a thing called love” and i was so relieved to be handed a glass of champagne as we got outside.

    The sun was shining and the drinks reception was fab, the bubbles were a big hit then the quartet came out and danced and played for us again.

    While people were taking their seats for the meal we did some group shots and a few couple photos then were announced into our wedding breakfast. The sweetheart table was perfect for us and it felt so good to be surrounded by people we love.

    My brothers speech made me cry, and Jon’s speech was way more romantic than i expected! Everyone loved the food, and the quartet surprised us by playing between courses again and SIL’s best friend sang along too (he has albums out and is very big in Germany).

    We were on time after the meal and went to check on the evening set up and talk to the band/DJ, then went outside with the photographer for more couple photos in the fading light, it was perfect.

    Evening guests started to arrive and soon they were ushered inside, we were announced in again to cut the cake and then it was time to dance. Nobody knew we had gone to a dancing lesson a few weeks ago so the woops and cheers as we danced to “Crazy” played by the band made it absolutely perfect. Jon is known for his 2 left feet.

    The evening went pretty quick, everyone was having a great time whether they were dancing to the band or DJ or having sweets from the buffet, it was just perfect. The cake was a joint effort between my mum and gran and everyone commented on how good it was!

    My friends were going to set up a video booth but I had forgotten, and by the time they remembered they’d had a few too many sherberts!
    The Jenga guest book was popular and the messages we got were fab, some really funny and some really sweet.

    I had a little throwing bouquet made up aswell which was a really fun point in the evening

    So in summary, it was a perfect day. After a fire alarm on the Sunday morning,
    IMG_3730.JPG
    IMG_3730.JPG
    we packed everything up and got home to chill out. We opened all the cards and listened to the cd of the quartet music SIL burnt for us. I think I cried more on Sunday then i did on Saturday because we were just so happy at how the day had gone!
    For future brides, don’t sweat the small stuff. Enjoy the morning as I was quietly panicking and then something I could not plan for made me late anyway so it really doesn’t matter!
