1 week as Mr and Mrs!
On Saturday I married my favourite person and it really was the best day ever! We felt so loved by our friends and family who came to celebrate the day with us, with half of them having travelled from Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Canada and more… I’m still trying to take it all in really. And our amazing families, bridesmaids and groomsmen who helped us set everything up. It was just so. much. fun!
I am grateful to have the honeymoon to plan and look forward to in a few weeks because after months of preparing, the wedding is all over so fast. Not ready to leave the wedding bubble quite yet! I plan to share some of the wedding on here but will wait for images from our photographer Jo Crawford.
Earl’s Court Station
We have been married for 1 week already and it’s not all that different from not being married, obviously. But it does feel kind of nice and settled, and we feel closer in a way. Alex and I met on the tube in 2010 and every now and again it blows my mind how small the chance was that we could have bumped into each other. Not only that we got on the same tube and happened to sit down opposite each other and started chatting (it was NYE, I don’t regularly chat with strangers on the tube), but he was also on holiday over from Australia! My friend and I were running late for a pub gathering with friends and I often wonder how different things would be if we’d had one more drink at home, or I hadn’t left my phone upstairs and had to run and get it, or if we’d worn flat shoes instead of heels and walked a little faster to the station. So many tiny things that could have changed our night by 30 seconds and therefore caused us to get another tube.
He ended up joining us at the pub and I saw him again before he flew back to Australia the next week. Fast forward a year of Skype calls and a couple of visits back and forth, he moved from Australia to the UK and now here we are! I think it’s a pretty cool story to tell the grandkids one day.
Let me know if there’s anything particular you’d like me to share on here from our day or about wedding planning. We learnt a lot from planning a DIY wedding – it was hard work but 100% worth it.
