So all of that fun and work in the lead up to our wedding paid off - we had the most amazing day. I know that everyone says it is the best day of your lives and it’s true it really was. Everything went really well, we were even lucky enough to have amazing weather, it was so sunny, we were able to have drinks outside in the courtyard, it was perfect!
There are a million photos, our photographer Danni was just amazing, she was there the entire day and captured beautiful photos, I don’t even remember her being there for some of the wedding, she was like a lovely tiny stealth photo pixie. We can’t recommend her highly enough, we were very lucky to find her.
Peggy looked stunning! Everyone went inside and got photos, people couldn’t believe that we (Robbie, my mum and I) did it all and that we own her, we’re very proud and so glad that we could make her perfect for us - she has her own little personality.
The confetti that Clare and I made was an outstanding success, it looks brilliant in the photos, the colours worked really well and there as sooooo much that my brother took his confetti last and filled his giant hands and drowned us in petals = it was hilarious! All captured in photos.
The cranes worked so well, I know that the guys had some issues putting up the 800+ cranes behind the top table. They were heavier than expected and it was bowing in the middle. Apparently my dad found some wood in his car and fashioned a support that wasn’t visible! Luckily they weren’t all tangled, that was my main worry but we laid them down on Peggy’s seats for the trip to the venue and it worked.
The “Pimp your Drink” was a hit! Although a few people did think that the gin was water. We did offer an large array of alcohol. Prosecco, gin and ale for the drinks reception. We actually did the speeches before dinner, I didn’t want my dad, Robbie and Jon (Robbie’s best man and brother) to worry through dinner. So we had bread and olives on the table for people to have while we did the speeches. In place of champagne for Robbie’s speech we collected vintage shot glasses for everyone and on the tables we had different drinks (port, sherry, limoncello and jagermeister for our party friends).
I could talk about the wedding all day/year but hopefully the photos do it justic.
I'm a happily married 30 something who has a fondness for planning and organising, an appreciation for spreadsheets, a love of all things wedding, a passion for DIY and am totally smitten with our two cats Bruce and Eddie.
