My Wedding Day Highlights

I’m not entirely sure how but we’ve been married a month already. I’ve had the post-wedding blues, we picked ourselves back up with an epic party, I’ve made a scrapbook and we’ve just finished decorating our flat with our gifts. Which means it’s time to relive a few of my favourite memories from the day.

I feel obliged to say that as I type this post, I have the BIGGEST grin on my chops. And maybe slightly watery eyes. Slightly.

Our wedding day was without doubt, the best day. Ever. For so many reasons. We had a bit of a bumpy start with hurricane Irma hitting Antigua on the Tuesday before. We were incredibly lucky and the hotel staff absolutely amazing. If anything, Irma brought our wedding party even closer and made everyone even more determined to have an epic day. I spent the day of the hurricane in a constant stream of tears, mainly because we’d planned for two years, got our loved ones all the way to Antigua for a holiday and instead were facing a 12 hour room lock in.

After many hugs, rums and a hot bath, I stopped crying. We were able to push the wedding back a day later than planned to the 8th September and get married on the jetty followed by our reception on the beach. Exactly as we had hoped. It was truly magical.

Now, onto the good bits. My wedding day highlights ladies and gents… Grab me a tissue.


Can we do it all again now? Maybe minus the hurricanes.

I plan on posting a lot more around the wedding, from tips to planning a wedding abroad to our outfits, and I can’t wait to get my hands on our professional snaps and relive it.
