It was a pretty low key event, pretty 'us'. My big brother walked me down the aisle, my friends made the flowers, family helped dress the tables at 11pm the night before, my bestie and me drinking bucks fizz with my sister, running over the road to my neighbours in our slippers so she could do our hair.
I didn't go dress shopping with my mum, instead I ordered in some ones I'd found on the internet, a couple of my friends shared their opinions on their favourite in my living room whilst we drank tea and our toddlers played on the carpet beside us.
We danced our first dance to 'Hounds of Love' by Kate Bush performed by my sister and brother in law whilst our two year old joined us.
The next day we stayed the night at a local hotel over looking Bristol suspension bridge, my mother in law stayed over to watch Wilf. Our friends sent us some footage of the wedding they had shot without us noticing. We watched it on my phone and had tears in our eyes because we felt so loved by so many.
I never dreamed of my 'perfect wedding' I could have taken or left it. I don't think marriage changed our relationship at all but it really was one of the best days of our lives. To celebrate the family we had become, and the the friends we had made along the way. To celebrate our lives together. I only wish we could do it all again and include Mabli this time.
So maybe we'll do it again in a few years time hey Tom ;)
