First of all, then is the Hen Do. Held in Drink Shop Do, it was a lovely sedate couple of hours of embroidering pants, drinking cocktails and having afternoon tea.
My best buddies Becky, Lisa and Serife had also added lots of special touches without me knowing – Lisa made name rosettes, Serife made a ‘bride to be’ sash and Becky made a scrapbook that included some unflattering pictures of me as a child, and some of me looking slightly more glamorous when I got a bit older.
As for the wedding, I shan’t go on about it other than to say it was an excellent day. It was great to have everyone we love in the same room, to catch up with old friends and make new ones. And I was sober! I have no idea how that happened, but I was just so nervous it barely crossed my mind.
My dress was not made by me – I just couldn’t deal with that level of stress! – but I bought it from an EXCELLENT Etsy seller called Lace Mary. She is amazing and the service was incredible.

Last but not least, a wonderful cake-topper made by TailorMadeToppers. It’s basically the best thing I’ve ever seen…
