it's C + i's second wedding anniversary tomorrow - two whole years since i married my best friend + enjoyed the most wonderful day of my life. i know that sounds really cheesy + cliched, but for me it's completely true. we've been together for over 11 years now (since we were 16 + 17) + he really is the most amazing person in the world. it's impossible for me to share all the happy memories i hold from that special day, so here's a quick little flavour of it-

we were married + held our reception here


the following poem was read at the ceremony by one of our closest friends + holds a great deal of meaning for us

I Will Be Here - Steven Curtis Chapman

If in the morning when you wake,
If the sun does not appear,
I will be here.
If in the dark we lose sight of love,
Hold my hand and have no fear,
I will be here.

I will be here,
When you feel like being quiet,
When you need to speak your mind I will listen.
Through the winning, losing, and trying we'll be together,
And I will be here.
If in the morning when you wake,
If the future is unclear,
I will be here.
As sure as seasons were made for change,
Our lifetimes were made for years,
I will be here.

I will be here,
And you can cry on my shoulder,
When the mirror tells us we're older.
I will hold you, to watch you grow in beauty,
And tell you all the things you are to me.
We'll be together and I will be here.
I will be true to the promises I've made,
To you and to the one who gave you to me.
I will be here.


the 'theme' (don't really like that word) was white + floral.


the flowers were hydrangea, peonies + ranunculus - all of my favourites!


that's enough. don't want to be a wedding bore, so i'm off now for a bath + some much needed beauty sleep - got to look my best (or half-decent at the very least!) for our special little day.
