- Wedding: November 2014
Well, after eight years with my honey we’re finally married! I’ll do a bit of a recap now while i’m husband has a nap.
The day before/morning of our wedding a lot seemed to go wrong. I had of course confirmed everything in months before, then again the week before, but when I called the national park we were to get married in to make sure they left the gates open for us, they told me it wasn’t in their diary and there was a running event on right where our ceremony was to be! Um, what. After some mild panicking, they eventually called back to say that wasn’t correct, the event was the day after… phew!
Then on the day, I sent the photographer our hotel room number at around 2.30 for her to arrive at 3.30, at 3.25 I got a frantic call saying she FORGOT the wedding altogether her she and her girlfriend had broken up and she was helping her move out…. She arrived at the hotel late and was horribly distracted and unprofessional the entire time, but from the two sneak peak pics she sent me, she still managed a few good photos.
When a close friend of ours arrived to pick my Maid/Matron of Honor and I up to drive us to the ceremony, he kept acting cagey and was taking the most back woulds route ever, eventually admitting he’d received a message that said “not to hurry”.. I never found out what it was until after the ceremony when I noted a LIVE BAND and 300 person event setting up just around the corner from us. Turns out we had been double booked after all and there was a large corporate function being held, and the band was doing soundchecking just as I was supposed to arrive. Luckily, husband sorted that out before I arrived.
The rest of it was perfect, we have a wonderful day surrounded by love and happiness and the 20 people we love most. The days since have been complicated…. If you’ve read any of my pervious posts, you’d know my family wasn’t invited or notified of the wedding, they somehow found out the day after and have been using every method under the sun to make me feel bad and guilt tripping me, including nasty abuse messages on facebook, brining my grandparents (who couldn’t come anyway, due to health concerns) into it and are generally harassing me with awful messages. I’m trying to not let it get to me since we’re on our honeymoon and really, they’re just reinforcing why they weren’t there in the first place.
Anyway bees, I’m off to get ready for dinner..
Congratulations to all my date twins, I hope you had an amazing day.
