Wedding Belles

My friends Sarah and Adam got married on Wednesday and it was such a lovely day. I have known the couple since the age of 16 and they are an unconventional pair who suit each other perfectly.

I have been looking forward to the day for ages and I bought my dress from Monsoon months ago. Me and all my friends went to get our make up done in the morning in MAC and Illamasqua, I had a little 'moment' because I thought my make up made me look like a drag queen but we were running so late I didn't have time to change it. Sorry for the hissy fit girls (if you are reading this).

We got to Tredegar House just in time for the ceremony and the building was gorgeous. I can't believe I have never visited before because it is pretty close to my house.



Doesn't it look grand?
Sarah's son Jonathan stopped the ceremony to take photos 'CHEESE MUMMY! photos!' cutest thing ever.


Loved the detail on Sarah's dress and she had lovely wedding shoes too, which were flat sho she could dance in them all night.


 Heart shaped Welsh cakes mmmm


Picked up this dress in the Monsoon sale for £28, I didn't manage to get a nice shot of my outfit with my bag and shoes because as soon as we stepped outside for photos it started to rain, total nightmare.


Love this photo of me and all the girls :) All the best/horrendous photos were taken on disposable cameras and my instant camera. Can't wait to get them developed.
Here is one of my instax shots-



I can't wait to get home tonight, put my PJ's on and watch a bit of TV. Working 12-9.30 and attending the wedding have really tired me out. I'm feeling old now, all the new students coming in the library are 18 and my friends are getting married and having kids. Scary stuff.

Have you been up to anything special this week? Have you got any funny wedding stories?

  11. Awesome dress and you don't look like a drag queen at all. Here's a funny wedding story. My friends Jack and Claire got married last month and the funniness involves Jack. During the church ceremony when they knelt down to be blessed, everyone started sniggering. Turned out that Jack's dad had written HELP on the bottom of his shoes with masking tape! The couple found it hilarious!
