Matthew and I have now been engaged for three months, and the plans for the wedding are coming together nicely. I promised not to write too much about the wedding here, but I thought a little update might be okay!
We were lucky enough to get our venues booked pretty speedily. We are getting married in a beautiful church in central London (more on that anon – it’s the most stunning building!). I must go get some good shots to share. The reception will take place at the cricket pavilion/playing field of my school, the perfect venue for a lowkey, chilled party! As we speak Matthew and I are researching transport and caterers.
We’ve invited our bridesmaids and best men, and will be lining up readers and ushers soon.
Save the dates are bought and ready to be labelled and mailed – as we’re getting married slap bang in the middle of high summer we’ll be letting people know sooner rather than later so they can plan – if they are able to attend!
I’ve bought my dress, and it’s now nestled in a garment bag, rather like a caterpillar in a chrysalis. I’ve also arranged our flowers (artificial, lovely), and as well as catering am hoping to have invitations, readings, favours, website, and the start of the playlist organised in the next couple of months. School is so busy September-December and May-June, this holiday is the perfect time to get cracking.
Matthew and I are enjoying the planning so far, and have agreed on most things (or been happy with the other party deciding – for example, Matthew couldn’t care less about flowers, I’m not a coach expert….but catering? We both have opinions, ha!). It’s a fun journey, and a really exciting time. Next year will be wedding-tacular – including our own we already have six scheduled for 2014! What a fabulous season to be in!
