Everyone refers to your wedding as your "big" day; now I can understand why. Standards are elevated, emotions heightened and everything is just bigger and better than normal! 

Rain made for an eventful morning with a flooded marquee. Luckily it didn't faze me; I think I was probably in land enjoying everyone working around me! Our wedding was at the beautiful St David's Memorial Church in Cave. My intention was to be on time, turns out I was about a minute late for every year my man made me wait. Twelve to be exact! 

We had a marquee reception at Mum and Dad's where I grew up. Our theme was sunflowers, Mum and Aunt Ral had grown many in their gardens in preparation. We had a fabulous large green wall at the back of the marquee and sunflower balls on the table.

To me the day was perfect (corny I know). They say it goes too fast and yes it definitely did. I don't think I had a proper conversation with anyone but to have all your best friends and family in one place, it's pretty awesome. If only we could do it more often!
