One Year Ago Today....

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary, I thought I would share some of my favourite pictures and moments from our perfect day.

My sister/chief bridesmaid helped me to get ready on the morning of the wedding. She did my hair and helped me with my makeup. I think she did a very good job!
My Ellis Bridals wedding dress was perfect, it made me feel really beautiful and I am so sad that I can't wear it again.
There were lots of buttons though... Thanks mum!
My beautiful bridesmaids - my best friends Harriet and Hannah and my sister Clare.
Getting a bit emotional just before the ceremony.
The ceremony and reception were held in a Georgian manor, which was beautiful. We had the whole house to ourselves, it was all very intimate and cosy! Perfect for two people who don't like being the centre of attention.
This is one of my favourite photos, we had just kissed and been pronounced husband and wife. I was a bit emotional and Mark wasn't keen on my lip gloss haha.
We were surrounded by our favourite people in the world all day =) I think this photo captures the atmosphere of the day perfectly.
Our wedding was on Easter Sunday so our theme was a mixture of beautiful bright and pastel spring colours.
Our cake was made by a family friend and it was exactly what we hoped for. Beautiful and yummy!
To carry on the Easter/Spring theme we made little jars of mini eggs as place cards and wedding favours.
And we gave the kids Easter eggs and colouring books, which they seemed very happy with!
Yummy!
We kept the ceremony and wedding breakfast quite informal with around 35 - 40 of our closest friends and family. The speeches were lovely from my Dad, Mark and his Best Man.
It was lovely to see the kids having so much fun.
After the wedding breakfast and all the photos it was time for our first dance to Etta James' 'At Last' and then the evening reception with lots of drinking and dancing and the arrival of the evening guests. It was an amazing day, I don't think either of us had ever smiled so much. I wish we could do it all over again!
