A Drizzly But Lovely Wedding...
On Saturday morning our little family got up bright and early and made the two and a half hour journey down to Herefordshire to attend the wedding of one of my oldest school friends and her future husband to be.
The bride is my oldest school friend, we were best friends ever since we were 10 at school, when we bonded over the fact we both ate far too much chocolate and hated playing hockey. We were inseparable from that moment on, aquiring new friends to our group along the way. After school we both went to separate Uni's, me to Leeds and her to Nottingham, but we have always kept in touch.
Despite slightly grey and damp surroundings, we were lucky enough to watch her and her new husband seal the deal in a beautiful church on top of a hill. The reception was then held in a gorgeous stately home where the rain held off long enough for us to drink lots of champagne and Pimms, and eat canapes on the lawn outside.
As often is the way as you get older, a lot of my old school friends live in London and as the bride now lives in Australia and was the glue that held us together, I don't see them all as much as I should. We had a lovely day catching up with a few of my school friends who I hadn't seen in ages, and some I see more often, like my lovely friend Becky.
Mads was as good as gold all day, although she didn't have a sleep so got a bit ratty during the wedding breakfast. However she was a dirty stop out and stayed out until nearly 10pm- she upstaged the bride at one point by dancing non stop on the dance floor. It was adorable and soon the whole dance floor moved so she was dancing in the middle with everyone around her in a circle. She made us very proud and at one point I looked over at Mr E and he had a little tear in his eye when he was looking at her. I am sure he would blame it on all the free booze but I know secretly he was thinking how amazing our little person is.
I didn't take many photos but here are a few of our day. As is always the way, weddings make me feel totally nostalgic and super emotional, and I spent the Saturday night cuddling up to Mr E and thinking how lucky I am to have found the one I wanted to marry. They really do turn me to mush- being able to be a part of two peoples special day is very heart warming indeed.
