However, the one photo that I did see early on and saved was this one which thanks to the power of my smartphone I instantly uploaded to facebook while on honeymoon with the caption ‘balloon girl weds’.
This photo made me laugh (after an initial “oh god” moment) and reminded me not to take myself too seriously even when organising something pretty serious and I did take wedding planning seriously. I took to it well, pouring over blogs, preparing spreadsheets and lists and frantically searching for those giant balloons which I just had to have.
Our two families worked the day before our wedding setting up the fairylights, decorating the tables and blowing up those giant balloons which are actually pretty scary to inflate. Having everyone work together to bring my lists and ideas to life was amazing and when it all came together, it looked magical. Never did I image though when setting up the balloons that one of them might align on the day and replace my actual head as we were saying our vows. Not exactly the picture perfect image I had in mind but despite that I do love the silliness of this photo.
