    Well Ladies; what can I say? I've finally married my man :D

    My mum and my bridesmaid came into our room the night before and we just relaxed and drank champagne before they left at just after 11pm; had a shower and then tried to go to sleep but I couldn't - I wasn't even nervous at this point!

    I got up at 7:30pm and put my dressing gown on to wait for the hair/make up lady who was coming at 9am while my mum and the girls nipped down and added the final touches. The hotel had put the groom 2 doors down from me!!! (so couldn't leave in case we bumped into each other). The signal in the hotel wasn't great (always been the same) so when the hair/make up lady phoned me to say she was lost...I was pacing the room to try and keep signal; she managed to get to our room at 9:12am so not too late and got to work doing my sister first. She then did my hair then my bridemaids and then did my make up last which was just as well as it meant the photographer could get lots of shots of us all getting ready.

    The room we were put in didn't have anywhere to hang my dress (cue everyone panicking) so we had to move the coffee tray off the table and laid my dress down which fortunately didn't crease; the photographer hung it up on the mirror to get the 'dress hung up' shot.

    My sister put on my fake lashes which I've never worn before and they really opened my eyes. My make up was different to the trial but I loved it more.

    Then it came to putting the dresses on; lace up backs are a headache :P When I finally got into my dress; the photographer has my dad brought in and I first he was going to burst into tears that nearly set me off. It was lovely.
    The flower girl was then sent up and we were ready to go. The registrar popped in for two minutes then we were off. I managed to eat 2x small croissants before the nerves hit me then I feel sick and so nervous. I thought I was going to pass out with my heart beating so fast as I waited by the doors with my father to walk up the aisle.

    My now husband was waiting for me at the end and was in tears; I somehow managed to put on a professional answering of the vows while he blubbed through them and kept whispering to me that I looked amazing.

    We then went outside for photos with the sun shining (we were so lucky with the weather as it was beautiful) and we did our dove release which was beautiful even if Jay's one did want to escape :P

    We then did some group and family shots before I had to nip off as I really needed the loo (I think it was the nerves :P); Peeing in big dress is very difficult and never has my mum; bridesmaid and maid of honour been to the toilet with me ;P

    We then went back inside and had our chocolate dipped strawberries which were lush and went down a storm with our buck's fizz before heading out for more photos before me and Jay went off on our own with the photographer. We then mingled some more before the wedding breakfast at 3pm.

    The service was prompt and the staff were lovely and very organised. The leak and potato soup was so nice which was followed by roast chicken wrapped in bacon with potatoes; veg e.t.c and then New York style cheese cake. The manager even acted as a toast master even though he didn't need to.

    The speeches were lovely even if the groom deleted his off his phone and forgot the paper copy so he winged it :P
    We then cut the cake :)

    We gave out the gifts and tried to go around each table; I definitely think one of the hardest parts of the wedding day is making sure you get to everyone and don' spend too much time with just one table.

    We went outside and took some more photos; the photographer ate with the guests which was nice as he was planning on eating alone. Our Pianist was amazing; such a nice man and went above and beyond for us despite us winning the competition so we only paid £99 extra for him to do the wedding breakfast instead of £420 or something like that. He even learnt a song or two from each table (Theatre names) which he didn't charge us extra for :D

    We all had a drink outside while the photobooth and dj got set up for the evening and the staff changed the room around.
    The DJ was great and everyone enjoyed karaoke! The photobooth was in constant use and the book we got after with all the snaps was so funny and nice to look through.

    We stayed till around half 12 then turned in for night as we were knackered and everything was done for the night.

    It was an amazing day and everyone made it lovely. The only people that let us down were two guests who didn't turn up...so we lost money on their meals but the page boy made the wedding breakfast so wasn't all bad. The venue decoration company let us down a bit; the chair covers; centre pieces e.t.c were lovely but they forgot our bay trees and table runners along with no leaving the key for the post box which we had to take up with us as didn't want to leave it unattended.

    This morning; we had to tip it upside down to get the cards out which we did so we are awaiting an email back to hear from them about our security deposit and hopefully a refund for the things they didn't provide.

    Other then that; it was a wonderful day!

    Can't wait for the official photos but here are a few that were taken on the day by us and our guests :)

    Thanks ladies; we get our official photos on Friday at 8pm. :D So excited.

    We went scuba diving o our honeymoon; for some reason my hair looks red in the water but I like it as I think it sorts me but not sure if I'd have the confidence to dye it red :S
