I had a pretty bad week last week when I went up North to visit family. There is nothing like a wedding to test a families tensions and mine is no exception. I came home feeling very dispirited and generally down in the dumps. I came very close to wanting the whole wedding cancelled and felt as miserable as I have ever been.
The fog has now lifted, I am glad to say. I went to see our Vicar yesterday to finalise details of the Wedding service and it rather put into perspective what a wedding is all about. It is at the end of the day about two people and two people only, my husband-to-be and I. We will say our vows and promise to love, cherish and honour each other in sickness and in health. What can be more beautiful than that. Tony sent me a text after I had argued with one of my sisters last week, it said, and I quote "Just remember that I love you - this is our day - even if no one turns up we still have each other". How right he is and how happy I am to be marrying someone so perfect for me.
I hope you like the Order of Service cards and placecards that I have designed and made this evening.
Lots of Love.
