Any Other Photo {Linsey and Ross}

I love it when an ‘old-timer’ (as in member of the community – NOT actually old. Obvs.) sends in their AOP. It puts a face to a name or a twitter handle for so many and lordy knows, this is a gorgeous, grinning face.

Thank you Linsey!

We got married on 26th November 2011, a mere 2 years, 2 months & 19 days ago. I always need the pressure of a deadline so when Aisling said there were no more I thought I better just make a bloody decision!
Truth be told, after we got married I didn’t really want to think about weddings ever again. I was in a stressful job that meant we had left a lot of the planning until much later than I’d hoped (I’m normally much more of a plan-ahead type of girl!). I didn’t have any post wedding depression, it felt like a relief that it was all over.

The night before the wedding we went to the church for our rehearsal and I got worried that I would come over all emotional on the day, so I asked if I could just say ‘I do’ instead of repeating the vows in case I started to cry. Later that evening I had a minor meltdown in our flat because we still hadn’t chosen our first dance, so it wasn’t an unreasonable assumption that I might be a bit teary.

It turned out on the day there were no tears, only big cheesy grins. There are a few pictures I had in mind for an AOP but this one sticks in my head. It’s maybe not me looking my best (check out those eye wrinkles!) and I’m doing what Ross refers to as my ‘scrunched up face’, but we look all smiley and happy and that definitely sums up our wedding day.

    It’s beautiful. Those are eye wrinkles, they are the sign of genuine happiness. A genuine smile.
