We Got Married!

Finally! After literally years talking about it on my blog, me and George finally went and got married! I really wasn't sure what I was going to say and when I'd say it but today felt right and I couldn't keep something like this away from my blog for too long.
We got married on the 20th of December 2017, late afternoon and it was everything we had hoped for. Just us and two witnesses, that was all we wanted. We had known for a long time we didn't want a fuss, all we wanted was to be married and have the same last name and be a proper tiny little family of our own. It didn't matter about the venue, the clothes, a cake, anything like that, so we kept it really simple. We had a registry office wedding, both in quite casual clothes, though I did have some pretty stunning shoes (which wrecked my feet) and we got cake from Patisserie Valerie afterwards. 

I know to some people that might seem really random and not very weddingey (if that's a word) at all but we really didn't want a big thing and for us it really was perfect. I know we'll look back one day and be happy with how we did it because it was our way, we didn't fall into the pressure of inviting everyone and spending loads of money, and we had waited for it for such a long time. We booked it months ago and managed to keep it a secret so when the day finally arrived, it didn't even feel real! After being engaged for 3 years, it was just the right time and I'm so happy we're finally husband and wife. I can't stop looking at my wedding ring, it goes so well with my engagement one and they are just beautiful, exactly what I wanted. Of course planning a wedding no matter how small is stressful and there were definitely things in the run up to it that I couldn't stop thinking about but on the day it literally all went away, I don't think I'd ever felt so calm and relaxed. It just felt right. I still can't believe it's real!

I don't really think there is too much else to say at the moment, and I don't want this post to go on for ages, we're just really happy and so excited now for Chrismas! Maybe early next year I'll talk about how we planned it all and the makeup I wore, things like that, if anyone would be interested. I just wanted to get this post up now before Christmas as it's just such an exciting time and I couldn't keep it in any longer. I'm hoping to get back to blogging some time next week but for now I'm going to enjoy a well deserved break over Christmas and hopefully come back raring to go again soon! 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and to those who have already said Congratulations and sent well wishes, thank you so much!
