Wedding Fever

Standard

Since the royal wedding last Saturday I now have wedding fever and won’t stop watching it. It was such a beautiful wedding and day, that now I just want to keep reliving it.

It takes me back to my day. I married in Southampton, in a Tudor Hall, which I found whilst watching a documentary about Southampton, then saw it in a picture in a wedding venue magazine.

Choosing a venue can be hard as you can get married in most places now. I originally wanted to get married at Arundel Castle, but this was way out of our budget, so then looked at getting married at the local Racecourse, Goodwood, but then there was accommodation, because I have a lot of family who would be travelling from London and from north of England.

So as soon as I saw the documentary about the Tudor Hall in Southampton I knew this was the place. It has to feel right and when you look at a venue take a moment to take it all in, can you picture your wedding there?

Can you decorate it as you’d like?

Is there good accommodation nearby?

In our case there was.

The only issue we had was our wedding clashed with the Boat Show in Southampton, so many of the hotels had already been booked up. Keep in contact with the Event Managers of the Venue in case they have a staff change over which they did at the hotel we chose. What had been agreed in their contract, when we payed the deposit hadn’t been carried out, and so we had to make further alterations as the hotel was also holding our wedding reception afterwards.

Then we had to at last minute find a new DJ as the one we booked had cancelled out on the day 4 hours before our wedding reception was about to start.

It didn’t all go to plan but it was a great day and would love to relive it again if I could.

Many thanks for reading,

I love a Royal Wedding

Standard

Thank the lord it is Saturday, the weekend, and I am feeling good this morning after having a good rest. Thanks to my mum for looking after Henry, so I could go out with my friends for the evening.

We met and had a drink and a bite to eat in Victoria, in London and they gave me some lovely presents, which I put posted a picture on my Instagram account. We were going out to celebrate my birthday, a very belated celebration.

They know me well as I do love a nice bag and toiletries, are always my favourite, which means more baths for me.

I enjoyed the wedding last week. I am a sucker for a Royal Wedding, and did watch the whole thing on This Morning. It was a really nice wedding.

One tip I would give to any bride is to enjoy the day as much as possible because it goes so fast before you know it, it has already been a week ago.

I thought Eugene looked beautiful and the whole venue looked amazing.

I love a good wedding, and it did bring a tear to my eye.

Do you like a good wedding? What did you do Friday night?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,
