Here are our wedding photos... Enjoy!
Thinking back to 2 years ago when I starting to put together ideas for the wedding and gathering SO many glass jars they were coming out of my ears! The craft evenings with my besties, the many nights gluing pictures in scrap books, my hands aching from making tissue pom poms & tassel's. Sharing my ideas from Pinterest or posting pictures that gave me inspiration.
Everything came together perfectly. Paul and I both wanted to create a wedding where we did as much DIY as possible and I think we did amazingly well. I'll never forget the last couple of weeks staying up until midnight getting the last few bits done, right up to the night before making the bridesmaids bouquets! I loved every single minute of it and its true when people say 'time flys' as it does!
It was a calm morning getting ready and I was SO over stressing out about the weather. I couldn't predict it and at the end of the day I was getting married to my best friend so that's all that mattered. I remember the nerves I felt waking up knowing this will be the last few hours being a single lady. I was so happy to have one of my best friends and chief bridesmaid Hannah stay with me the night before. I don't know what I would of done without her and I'll be forever grateful.
My make up artist and dear friend Chloe came round mid morning once we were back from the hair salon to get us all dolled up. She's seriously an amazing artist in general (check out her work here), I loved how Chloe did our make up and wish I had a make up artist to do mine everyday! The rest of my bridesmaids arrived just before midday and it was that time to get into my dress with the help from Hannah. I'll never forget the moment standing in front of her and tears filling both our eyes. Its been such a journey the last couple of years and I'll cherish that moment forever.
The bridesmaids and I made our way to the registrar office in Flossy (cutest name) the VW camper van. Arriving a little early and seeing Paul's face for the first time in 24 hours was amazing! We've waited a long time for this moment and it was finally happening, I was marrying my best friend. The whole ceremony went by in a blur and before I knew it we were Mr & Mrs Adger! Whoop!!
We had the best time with our close friends and family with around 35 people attending overall. All my wonderful bridesmaids looked amazing in their individual dresses. My little sister Bluebell looked super cute and said I looked like a Disney princess. The weather was great even if we did have the odd shower of rain throughout the day, thankfully it stopped every time we went outside to take pictures!
I can't wait to share more with you and I shall be posting the second part over the next week, along with all the DIY's (finally!)
Happy 1st of September everyone!
