A wedding is a party not a performance.

During the excitement (and stress) of planning a wedding it’s easy to lose sight of the reason behind all the flowers, decorations, music, food and booze – we’re actually getting married! At the end of this elaborate day, I will have married the man I love.

Something that reminded me of this recently was the ‘questionnaire’ that our celebrant, the lovely Amy Edwards, asked us to fill in about each other. It asked lots of questions about your partner, what you love about them and why you are marrying them. When I started to fill in the questionnaire I wrote, and wrote, and wrote – I had so much to say about the amazing man I am going to spend the rest of my life with. Then I thought, ‘does he even know all the little things that I love about him?’ So for the past 71 days I have been sending him a text message every day telling him each and every thing I love so much about him. I’m going to do this every day until our special day arrives and I hope that he understands just how much he means to me.
