|I received my first speeding fine - ever!|
- driving home from work to watch Will
and Kate's wedding. Whoops!
I’m sure you get the idea - I love a good wedding :)
So, you’d assume that when I became engaged, I would have had my wedding all planned out. Well, I didn’t. I guess I’m a bit superstitious, but it never felt right to me to think too much about my wedding until I was actually having one.
And just to make things interesting, I decided to have the wedding nine months after our engagement (surely weddings aren’t all that difficult to plan?), and at about the same time I entered the New Voices competition.
Thanks to New Voices, I had significantly less time to plan my wedding that I expected (not that I’d complaining!), and a really positive result of this was that I had no time to over-think anything. I had to make decisions quickly. And consequently, two weeks ago, I had my dream wedding. I married my own hero at the park where we first met, and had the reception in my mum’s backyard beneath a beautiful tree, rice paper lanterns and wooden hearts dangling amongst the branches, and our friends and family all around us – and all absolutely carving up the dance floor! I wouldn’t change a thing – it was absolutely perfect.
Do you love weddings too? What do you love about them?
In your romance novels, do you like to read about the hero and heroine’s wedding, or are you happy to end with the proposal?
PS I don't yet have the professional photos, but I love this pic of my new husband and I (still not used to saying that!) taken by Nikki Logan.
