Day 18 - my wedding/future wedding/past wedding

Woody and I first met in 1991, he was going out with a friend of mine from college. I think about a year after our first meeting we finally got together after a false start where I stood him up. (And the friend from college gave him my number, and a warning to treat me nicely!)
Twelve ish years, three children and a bump later we decided to get married.

I love other peoples weddings, but I've never been one of those women who dreamed of the big white dress, so we decided to keep it very low key. We told a few people (that might've been hurt otherwise) that we planned to get married quietly. We didn't even tell the children until the night before, when I produced two pretty dresses and a little velvet suit and told them about the which Eden replied "Who are you marrying Mummy?" !!!

My best friend, Heather and her (now) husband were our witnesses.
I made my own dress, which I only finished hemming the morning of the wedding, a maternity wrap dress.

The wedding took place at the Town Hall, and afterwards we went to a little local pub and had cheese pie and chips.

Then we went home, got changed and had a walk to the park.

The perfect wedding for us.


Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. I seem to remember I found the site that had the fabric for your dress didn't I?
    You all looked lovely (and still are of course!)

  2. Yes, you did! Emma One Sock!

  3. Simple yet memorable, what more would you want, sounds like the perfect wedding. I'm helping my best friend who is having a big wedding and honestly it's an expensive nightmare lol!

  4. It sounds perfect and y'all look beautiful. I love that--"Who are you marrying, Mummy?" HA.

  5. Sounds perfect to me! That's what I love best about weddings, that you can do whatever the hell you want. You don't have to follow traditions or do it like everyone else does. I find the weddings like yours often end up being the most fun!

  6. Everyone should have the wedding they want. No matter what it's made up of. It's lovely that you did :)


Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
