Our Wedding Pictures

I can't believe the wedding was almost 2 months ago now. Time is seriously flying by! As our wedding photos are now back I thought i'd share a little about our day.

I was surprisingly calm on the day, I really thought i'd be an emotional nervous wreck but I wasn't! I was so teary on the lead up to the wedding so I was so proud of myself for keeping it all contained. 

One thing that I was most worried about was the weather. It absolutely poured down in the morning, I really wanted it to stop as our venue has the most amazing outside space where our drinks reception was to be held. We were so so lucky as the rain literally stopped just before the ceremony and the sun even appeared during our drinks reception.

The venue looked absolutely amazing. It was exactly as we had envisioned, lots of natural colours and textures with ALL THE CANDLES!

The ceremony was beautiful. We were just so happy to finally get married after 10 years of being together. We were surrounded by our family & friends, everyone had such huge smiles on their faces; you could just feel the love in the room : )

Look at that sunshine in the picture! We were so happy that the rain disappeared, so lucky! Our venue was surrounded by the rolling countryside so we managed to get some lovely photos.

The whole day just flew by, we've never known time to go by so quickly. After our photos were taken we had the yummiest sit down meal, fun with the photobooth we hired and lots of dancing till the end of the night.

After our guests had left, we sat in the courtyard with a blanket and hot drink, surrounded by the fairy lights and stars. It was so cosy and romantic! This was the first chance we had to just sit and let the whole day sink in, we couldn’t believe we were finally married! The whole day was truly amazing, we'd love to relive it all again.

I'm going to share lots of the little details in their own blog post to inspire lots of other brides to be, so keep an eye out soon!

Enjoying Autumn

Autumn is 100% my favourite time of year. The colours everywhere in nature are just beautiful, home feels more snug and it's just that little bit closer to Christmas :) I always expected to have terrible 'post-wedding blues' but the Autumn cosiness has seriously helped to beat that. Feeling cosy with my husband *so weird saying that* on chilly evenings with our bellies full of comforting food has felt amazing.

The past month has been filled with LOTS of pumpkins. We found a farm near work that grows 100's of them, all different shapes and sizes. The munchkin ones are just so cute, I could of bought so many of them.

We had a pumpkin carving competition in the family before Halloween. So much fun! We had a quiet Halloween with just one knock at the door...we didn't mind too much though as we scoffed the chocolates to ourselves!

Another thing i've enjoyed is bubble baths! It is so cold out now that a hot bath is heaven. This bubble bar from Lush is a new favourite of mine, it made the bathroom smell like a Spa. I only bought one so will be stocking up with a few next year.

Have you been enjoying Autumn so far? What's your favourite thing about it?
