Suze and her husband sound like the kind of couple that everyone will want to be friends with. Suze’s AOP doesn’t even show her actual wedding and yet I WISH I’d been there with my heart, so bloody brilliant does it sound.
Readers, I have for you today an AOP full of love and laughter and flat-out JOY. What more could you want on a rainy Friday?
My husband and I got married on September 21st, 2013 – two days after our ten year anniversary. In that decade we’ve grown up together and weathered new jobs, new houses and a whole lot of fun.
It feels like six months, not ten years.
Our wedding day was planned in nine months with some firm guidelines: the wedding colours were teal and grey, our guests were not paying for alcohol at the bar and it had to be all us. We pulled it off with the help of some wonderful people as well as a heck of a lot of hard work, especially in the last fortnight.
We had a brilliant photographer and there are hundreds of amazing photos I was going to choose, showing our fantastic threads and beautiful friends. The favours we had made which were printed pint glasses with our actual faces on, tastefully transformed by our super talented designer friend.
But this one. This one was taken by our chief bridesmaid the day after the wedding, after our friends and family had packed up everything from the wedding into their assorted vehicles and drove it all back to ours. This is us, cajoled into doing the ‘over the threshold’ thing by our giggling friends and family. We are unwashed, having not had time to have a shower and we’re also accidentally wearing the same colour of t-shirt despite packing separately, two days prior.
It sums us up. A bit silly and with a whole lot of lovin’.
And if you look closely, you can see my awesome custom-made Converse with ‘Mrs Sharman’ embroidered on them.
