So here's to you...

...Mrs Robinson!

Yes it really did happen. In just 6 months, I went from saying "I will" to saying "I do". As you can imagine, it's been a rather crazy time - particularly as so much of the wedding was handmade, but more on that another time.

I guess the other thing to point out about the big day, was that we ran away to Gretna Green. Yes really we did! Although we did take our families, and close friends with us to celebrate our big day, but compared to most it was a tiny wedding.

Gretna Green wasn't the most popular choice with everyone, but it was what we wanted and looking back now we have absolutely no regrets. It was a fantastic day, and everyone who came said they really enjoyed it! I also can't fault the staff up at Gretna Green, both at the Blacksmiths and the hotel where we stayed and held the reception. They really have got weddings off to a fine art and helped make our day really special!

If anyone is thinking about getting married up there, all I'll say is do it! You won't regret it, we certainly didn't!

However, one thing I wasn't prepared to compromise on was the photography. I nearly changed my mind on our venue when I started hunting for a photographer in Gretna Green as they didn't exactly live up to my high standards! However, after looking further afield we did manage to find a superb photographer who travelled up to Gretna Green to photograph our wedding.

But more on the photography in another post... this just a small selection of the professional photographs he took for us, I'll be dedicating a whole post to his wonderful pictures!

And now, I can't believe we've been married over a month. Does it feel any different? Well no, not really but then again we've been together such a long time (and lived together for years!) that in that sense there's been no real change. On the other hand, having a new name does take a bit of getting used to!

However, it is lovely to be husband and wife and that was the whole point wasn't it? To get married.

So, I've finally broken my blogging absence! I've got lots of posts lined up for you, both about the wedding (of course) and about the crafting I've been doing. You'll never believe it, but I've actually been scrapbooking!

Thank you, and see you soon! X
