A little insight in to Miller HQ after 7pm. Dinner is finished, Miller is gaming with his friends (Destiny), I sing along loudly to 80s power ballads with my earphones in. This was post composed to Journey, Bonnie Tyler and Alice Cooper. We then moved on to Papa Roach, Coolio and Ke$ha. I am nothing but diverse. Atticus gives me the eye until I take him out. Finish with some Blackstreet and then bed.

I am so happy to be back and sharing weddings. Especially this one! This is a gorgeous wedding in the depths of the welsh country side. Tipis, festoon lights, bunting and trestle table heaven. I don’t think Wendy will mind me drawing attention to this, but I just wanted to swiftly mention how gorgeous she looks, and she isn’t wearing an ounce of make up. I don’t need to go in to the “happy in your own skin” spiel but I don’t think I have ever blogged a bride without make up on, and it is refreshing.
