I'm pretty sure I could go on for ages with the amount of wedding photos I have, but I think it's time to lay it all to rest and get back on with everything as normal. Believe it or not I am still adjusting to normality over here since the wedding and with Christmas just round the corner I am still in a bit of a dream world.
I still seem to watch my (homemade) wedding video at least once a day, and love seeing my wedding picture beaming back at me every time I pick up my phone, so the magic of the day is still around me. It really was a dream come true and never in a million years would I of thought that I would spend this Christmas as a wife and I literally could not be happier.
I thought it was about time I finally got round to uploading my wedding pictures to the blog. I've been holding on to them for a little longer than necessary, but as i've been married for nearly 2 months I get best get it out the way.
I've already got my favourites in frames on the walls and they have done the rounds to all the family, and I am over the moon with how our whole day was captured. The whole day was a very relaxed affair and was attended by 70 of our friends and family. Being a bride who has never dreamt of her wedding, I was very overwhelmed at first to try and get a venue sorted ASAP. Deep down I knew that I wanted to get married in the heart of Brighton where I was born and raised, and it made our day all the more special. So enjoy the photos and I will post some more throughout the week.
We have finally reached the end of the honeymoon snaps and I have just one more instalment (I can't tell you how much I have struggled with sorting through, and editing all these photos) The last stop is New York City. A place I hold in my heart, and a place I just couldn't wait to step foot in again. We stayed in Greenwich Village and spent our 2 days trying to not play tourist at all. Having been a few times before we stayed clear of times square and explored the villages and downtown with eager anticipation hopping into cafes along the way. We explored chelsea market, got lost in Greenwich village, strolled with the locals along the Hudson river on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon and ate far to many cupcakes.
Magnolia Bakery cupcakes from the original bleeker street shop (okay this a tourist thing to do, but when you queue for a cupcake at 11.30pm at night you know they are good)
brunch at The Standard, Highline
Do you recognise this building?
"so no one told you life was gonna be this way..."
We stumbled past it in Greenwich village
We also accidently spotted 'Carrie Bradshaws' apartment, and Si snapped me realising after I spotted about 10 people just taking photos of some steps
Our feet and legs were so tired after all of the walking done in NYC, let alone in the whole 2 weeks, so we finished the honeymoon off with what else than a burger in good old 'Five guys'
One of the seven natural wonders of the world, 227 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and with depths up to 6000ft, sits The Grand Canyon. And what seems like a lifetime ago now, we flew over and into the depths of the wonder it's self.
First call after landing was to get an obligatory handstand picture, and to just stare in amazement at it all. You are actually only allowed 30 minutes on the Canyon floor, due to an agreement with the tribe that owns the land, but it was just enough time for a quick picnic and a cheeky glug of champagne out of a plastic shute (class'ay)
Having missed out on doing the helicopter tour on our last visit to Vegas, we still debated whether to do it this time due to the cost, but we would of been stupid to of not done it, and I am so, so glad we did. The beauty and sheer awesomeness of it all really blows you away, and it's pretty amazing to say that I had a mini picnic with my love on the floor of the Canyon on a beautiful sunny day. Highlight of the honeymoon by far.
So I say DO IT!
