2 Years!

Although M was away for our '2 Year Anniversary' he still managed to make me feel very special!

I was awoken by a phone call, and then at 12pm, these beautiful flowers (note the pink gerbera!) arrived on my desk:

With the flowers was a very sweet card too... I love him! xx

Flowers, Magazines, Honeymoons... Wedmin & Pimms O'clock!

We took a day off together on Wednesday 8th June as a semi-anniversary date as Matt was away for our 'official' 2 year Anniversary.

With nothing planned and not many pennies to spend, we decided to use the day productively so we headed into town.

First stop was a florist..... where we found out (unknowingly!) that the florist is one of the last things to sort, once we have BM dresses, colour themes, my dress & everything else sorted. Probably a wise idea seeing as I'm now considering moving away from the hot pink theme!

The florist suggested we buy a seasonal magazine of floral arrangements - which we did, and while I was in WHSmith I also bought the regular wedding magazine I usually buy... with a quick flick through I happened to notice that the BM dress we'd previously found featured in it - this made me smile!

We then accidentally on purpose fell into First Choice and within an hour & a half of chatting to the very helpful lady in there, have decided we'd like to do a safari beach honeymoon - a few days safari followed by a 7-10 days on a beach. We now just have to decide specifically which hotel & which safari to do. Can't wait to get it booked up!

All of this was followed by lots of exciting wedmin talk accompanied by a couple of Pimms in the sunshine by the docks... perfecto!


As a last minute (panic!) buy for Tom & Hannahs beautiful, rather traditional wedding in Stratford-Upon-Avon, I came up with this Warehouse Sale dress:

Ok, so we got some comments about whether Matt was 'forced to wear a matching tie' (and, no, he wasn't... he chose to wear yellow too!) but Matt commented about how much he liked me in yellow, and whether or not we could bring that into our wedding...

Immi did a bit of google image searching and found this gebera image:

... which I absolutely LOVE! and am now going to use it as my 'image board'. I think the yellows, pinks & peachy oranges look fab together... I'm even considering having a different colour for each bridesmaid...

The hunt begins!

My blog has been quiet over the last couple of weeks as the start of hectic-ness took place!

Amongst all of that was our little holiday to Cornwall, which was just simply amazing! We both loved every second of it, such a beautiful place!

Was so lovely to spend some (much needed!!) quality time together away from lifes normalities...

Whilst we were in Cornwall we visitied Lands End, St Ives, Penzance, St Michaels Mount, Falmouth, Watergate Bay, Padstow, Rock, Polzeath and of course Newquay! We also decided that if we dont go on honeymoon straight after the wedding, we will spend a few days glamping in Cornwall!!

Nom Nom Nom.....

Just seen this amazing cake on a blog.... I love it! So simple, yet so classic.... Wonder if MIL is willing to bake her infamous delicious sponges for it?!?
