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!

Amy&Matt-Ellingham Hall -201 Amy&Matt-Ellingham Hall -212 Amy&Matt-Ellingham Hall -248 Favourite MomentAhhhh 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!

Amy&Matt-Ellingham Hall -258 Amy&Matt-Ellingham Hall -271 The StationeryAbsolutely everything was done by my Mum and her best friend! They made everything by hand – everything you see at the reception was made by them in the year prior to the wedding.

The HoneymoonNo 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!

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!
