I hope you all had a lovely weekend? I am still recovering from a weird tummy thing, doing better! Did you read Vanessa’s first post as a blogging bride to be? Kicking off the week with a gorgeous countryside wedding, some pops of purple, a hint of tweet and one hell of a beautiful bride!

Ahhhh literally wouldn’t know where to start – the whole weekend was beyond anything I could’ve ever imagined! As we stayed for the whole weekend, we had the chance to catch up with everyone on the Friday night before the wedding on Saturday. Seeing my Dad’s face when he came to collect me from the room was amazing and then seeing Matt’s face when I came down the aisle – it was the best feeling in the world to be stood in front of everyone, telling the world how much I loved this man and how I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. I feel like getting married is an outward show of your love and commitment to that person and it was amazing doing that in front of all of our best friends. My Dad’s speech was also fantastic – there were lots of tears! And Matt’s speech was also really moving – I know a lot of his friend’s were in tears too – they said they didn’t realize he had it in him to speak like that!

We made a donation to cancer research and the Butterfly Thyroid cancer trust – I (Amy) was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer when I was 20 and was supported by the charity, so we got some little butterfly pins for the guests to wear.
No honeymoon! We’ve just bought a house and I’ve just started work as a doctor so its difficult to get time off! We’re hoping to go to America next year but we did manage to have a few days in Scotland and a spa day so we did have a bit of time together!
All of the entertainment was provided by North East Soiree – string quartet in the church and drinks receptions, Ceilidh to begin the dancing and DJ after that.
I think quite possibly I was the luckiest bride in the world as my parents, in laws and their friends did absolutely everything for us. I had a pretty busy year as I had my Medicine finals, we bought a house and then we got married – so my Mum and her best friends took all the responsibility and sorted absolutely everything. And it was better than I could EVER have hoped for. I really didn’t mind what the wedding was like – it was just the best party in the world, marrying the man of my dreams and celebrating with my family and best friends. That’s all that matters really!
