DISCLAIMER: Non-stitchy related, please feel free to skip this post and check back soon for stitchy pictures and updates!

We finally did it!  We are now happily married!  For those that aren't aware, we've lived together since early 2006 and we decided in April 2011 that we would get married this year.  It seemed to always be ages away, then before you know it, the day arrives!

We got married on Friday 21st September.  It was a very simple registry office wedding with a few close friends and family, followed by a lovely meal and drinks in a private room at a nearby restaurant.

We've been away for a few days so it's taken me a while to sort out some pictures to show you all.  It's going to be a picture filled post so I apologise for that in advance:

Mum, Kizzy (my cousin) and myself before the ceremony

Mark and I exchanging vows

Exchanging rings

Kiss the bride

The happy couple!  

Making it official
Both families united

Cutting the cake
Myself and Mark!

We had a truly wonderful day and I must thank Jennidee Mills, who made the beautiful headdress that I wore.  All the guests asked about it and said it was very unique!

Thank you to all of you who left such lovely messages and although it was a bit of a whirlwind and has only just settled down, they were read and very much appreciated.  
It's so kind of you to take the time to look through the pictures and share a little of the day with us!

IHSW - Fail!

Well, sorry everyone that's come looking hoping for a ton of photo's of the mass of stitching I got done this weekend.  I fully intended to Hermit and Stitch but sadly life often gets in the way.

I spent so much time trying to decide what to stitch, putting a couple of stitches in then putting it back down again that in the end I didn't really do anything.  I can only put it down to pre-wedding nerves then being distracted by things that still needed sorting out.

The wedding is this coming Friday 21st September and I'm already a bag of nerves.  I don't usually talk too much about myself, but I hope you excuse a little bit!  It's not actually being married that's causing the nerves, it's everything else about the day and all the things that can go wrong!

I'm sorry this post has no photo's but I felt I should explain why there was no IHSW post, the next post will have a few wedding pictures in though to make up for it!
