I thought I’d write a bit about our wedding day seeing as I’ve done so many posts mentioning dresses and shoes and flowers and all sorts of things, I wanted to share pictures with you mostly. I haven’t got many of the official pictures back, yet, but I have got ones which friends and family have taken, which are really good, which I will share with you.
The general gist of how the day went would best be described as – Perfect, simple, relaxed and easy. It went incredibly fast, like everyone days, but it wasn’t this mad, busy rush which is what a lot of people warned of. Because we took out lots of the official stuff (like speeches and first dances etc) it gave us more of a chance to just let things flow naturally. I’m also really glad I bartered with them to give my photographer more time than they wanted to give him because this meant that we had plenty of time to just take things slowly with that, too, and we ended up with time left over before the meal that gave us the chance to see our friends and family and not be rush rush rushing through everything.

The venue was perfect, the food was amazing, the cake was perfect and the DJ was so good playing the same songs over and over for Skye. The room we were given for the night was just amazing, it was a proper suite with a living room/dining room, tv in both that room and the bed room, massive bed room with the comfiest, Hugest bed I’ve ever seen and a massive bathroom with a bath and a shower. We made absolutely no use of anything other than the bed and the bathroom which is a shame, but we just didn’t have the time. We did, though, have a lovely time the next morning, having a long breakfast, with lots of extra tea, with Azii’s Mum and her husband, was really nice.
Azii and Skye – This picture is now featured on the Williams Syndrome facebook page in their ‘Friends with Williams’ album. My sister in law, Sophie, submitted it and it’s so amazing that it’s up there.
I wish Ethan looked a little less fed up (hopefully our photographer got some smiley ones of this) – but Ethan and I, none the less.
The beautifully decorated tables – My Mum did everything – Made the posies that sat in the teacups, made the open flowers that sat on the tables and then she set it all up herself whilst my sister and I were at home getting ready.
