Well hello there lovely readers - long time no type! I've been a busy little bee of late (hence my silence) but I have just got back from a truly wonderful break and wanted to share with you some of my tales!
This weekend, of my bestest friends stood in front of her nearest and dearest and married the love of her life and it was just perfect!
We all headed down to Cornwall (my first ever trip) for a weekend full of love, happiness and lots of tears! I've said this before but these girls truly mean the world to me and spending time with them really is one of my most treasured past times.
We stayed together in a lodge in the middle of the Cornish woods and enjoyed getting each other ready for what turned out to be one of the most special days in our 10 year history!
I opted to get my hair done professionally - I had it in my head how I wanted it (thanks pinterest) and knew I would never be able to achieve it! It turned out perfectly, exactly how I wanted it and I felt so pretty!
Then there was the ceremony and our first glance at the most beautiful bride. She had kept her dress a secret from us so it was a real surprise on the day which inevitably ended in a few (a fair fair few) tears from our pews!
Now, the reception was a good old hour and half away from the ceremony but that didn't matter when we got to travel in style on a very quaint old fashioned London double-decker bus - their London twist to their Cornish wedding! With prosecco flowing and wonderful views, the journey wasn't nearly half as bad.
Then we arrived at the wonderful setting of Mount Edgecumbe - what a setting! We arrived to more prosecco and scones -just what was needed! After enjoying the surroundings, we settled down to speeches first, which in a nutshell, we're slightly traumatic! I'm a weeper to say the least so when the Bride took to the floor first, I was already a goner. But when she gave a special mention to us girls that was it, the table lost it and there were sobs, uncontrollable sobs!
Once composed we enjoyed a delicious dinner and spent the evening dancing the night away!
It really was a wonderful wedding, topped off with a truly spectacular walk through the Cornish valley the following day!
I'm now curled up on the sofa enjoying the extra day off (it was a very long day of travelling home yesterday) reminiscing about the past few days!
