Like exams and Christmas…just with more make-up and cherubs

This is Rach M’s wedding report. It is, as you would expect, fabulous, honest, and hilarious, all rolled into one brilliant wedding report. I’m not going to add any more than that because Rach has done such a good job herself, but I do just quickly want to say how much I love that AOW [...]

Not a fairytale/Real is awesome

Katy’s post has bought back vivid memories for me – her description of walking up the aisle and feeling so present is, for me, spot on.

Confessions of an Imperfect Bride

So many of you know and love Katie. She of Simplified Science and World’s Most Beautiful Smile fame. I loved Katie anyway, she’s pretty awesome. And then I read this. A wedding report with a whole paragraph on bum-clenching. A wedding report that says, ‘hey, it’s ok’. Everything is ok.’ A wedding report written with [...]

When Penny Married Sam

Penny has been an integral part of the AOW community since the very early days, and we are honoured to bring you her take on her wedding day.  There’s never been another wedding even close to this one, for so many reasons.  I don’t think any of us will ever see photographs like this again.  [...]
