Three years ago today I married the love of my life. (I’m the one in white FYI)
The day was everything I hoped for and more. I was treated like royalty. It was the most expensive day of my life and I hope it stays that way! The dress I wore was by Mori Lee and was second hand. It was the first one I tried on and fitted like it was made for me. It needed no alterations. Ok, so it wasn’t the height of fashion, but to me it was timeless and suited me down to the ground. This was the lowest cut dress I’ve ever worn and yet I felt entirely natural wearing it.
My oldest friend Caroline was my chief bridesmaid, seen giving me my well deserved drink in the first picture. My lovely sister-in-law Lynne was our second bridesmaid. They both looked amazing in the scarlet gowns we picked. Not enough people use white, scarlet and yellow as their colour scheme. FACT.
My husband Chris looked handsome in his suit and had his old mate Dan as best Man, who did a sterling job. My brother Theo and my cousin Gregory were Ushers and did a fab job. My brother is the blond one, incidentally he’s single, any takers?
I wore 5 inch heels under my gown, hence why my Dad is a bit miffed I’m now slightly taller than him!!! Note I’m still not quite as tall as my bridesmaids, should have found higher heels!
We were married in St Peter’s church, Thurston and held our reception at The Grange Hotel, Thurston. We had a modest congregation of friends and family to support us on our big day. A golden Rolls Royce with driver was my chauffeur for the day.
In a surreal twist of fate our Wedding photos are used on the website for the gorgeous reception venue “The Grange” (with two other couples’ pictures) and against all odds, my hairdressers use a shot of my wedding hairdo for their marketing at Wedding fayres. The world is a strange place, but I feel like my dreams came true on that day.
Apologies for the enormity of this post, just wanted to share some special moments with you.
P.S. The dress wont be worn again by me, if you are interested in buying it then drop me an email.
