What better way to spend a Friday than look at someone else’s wedding photos? – Me
Here’s the anticipated wedding photos as promised.
Bridesmaiding duties started early, with an 8am wake-up call to go and fetch the dress. This was quite a feat considering we’d only got to bed at gone 1 the previous night. I also got to have a quick trip to Co-op to get us some breakfast croissants, while feeling very out-of-place having just had my hair done. We then took them home and burnt them. Good start.
I’ll be honest, we were pretty unorganised. The wedding was at 3 and at half 2, the bride was just starting to get dressed and the bridesmaids were printing off a game for after the meal. But we managed it and were only 10 minutes late.
Here’s us all dressed and pretending like we’ve had a very relaxed and laid-back morning.
This illusion was quickly shattered as we got outside and realised we’d almost left without her veil.
Obviously I couldn’t take any pictures during the wedding, so here’s one of them as a brand new Mr and Mrs.
You have no idea how long it took me to make that bunting. Though probably less time than it took for everyone to make those cakes.
I also made all of these paper wheels to go behind the cake table. I may be slightly bias but I do think it looks amazing.
This was what we were printing off in the morning instead of getting ready. Wedding guest bingo was a pretty good game. Everyone supplied an interesting fact before the wedding and then had to work out who’s fact was who’s. And there were some pretty interesting facts. I had a good laugh at the woman who met her husband as she chased a naked patient down a corridor, only to discover that this woman was actually my Grandma. I was horrified.
(If you’re wondering, my fact was that during his teenage years the groom had a picture of me dressed as a nurse in his bedroom. The groom is my brother by the way, and I was about 5 and adorable.)
Instead of dancing in the evening, there were loads of games. There was some serious Jenga’ing going on.
Ever seen a wedding where the bride is playing football in her dress? I think she even still in her heels at this point …
So there’s a small part of the photos from the wedding. It was literally one of the best days I’ve had, and I’m so so happy to finally have a sister! Also, Katie still hasn’t been to a wedding. Sorry if this was hard for you to read 😉
