New Start

Two months ago I started a new job. I left behind the 8-5 office job and car commute and re-joined the world of Hospitality. A big change but I feel like me again. 

No two days are the same... I get to see more of Harry and as I'm on my feet all day everyday, I'm slowly slimming back to my normal self. WIN.

Oh and I get to see these lovely things during my shifts and daily commute.

Wedding Planning #1

So plans for our big day are well underway!

On the 24th May 2014 we will become hubby and wifey... We'll get married in the little church in my parent's village, followed by a marquee reception in the fields behind their house.

We have the church and marquee booked, the photographer is sorted and last week we met the Vicar. Harry was a bit scared, though he wouldn't admit it... but when he saw a 1970 Isle of Wight poster on the office wall and a full drum kit set up in the corner, he soon realised that Ian wasn't like most Vicars! We drove away from the meeting grinning like chumps, chatting about readings etc and the fact that he'd seen Jimi Hendrix play live one of the last times before he died... Surreal!

A couple of weeks ago I ordered our Save the Date cards. I'd used Social Print Studio before and was really pleased with their service. They're brilliant and although they're in the USA, they deliver really quickly to the UK and postage is free! As you may know by now I'm a massive Instagram nerd, so I chose a pic that I'd taken before of the church where we'll marry. I then used Elsie and Emma's A Beautiful Mess App to add the text. I was so chuffed when they arrived in the post!

back and front

I spent Sunday evening handwriting 100 of these little buggers and then posted them out this week. Exciting and one massive thing checked off the list. YES!

So now it's onto the next planning phase... decoration inspiration and general wedding fun. Pinterest can keep me amused for hours as can my favourite wedding blogs, but there is something about seeing things in the flesh and taking in all the fun first hand! That's when ideas, likes and dislikes really take shape.

This Sunday I'm taking my Maid of Honour to Winchester. We're going for breakfast and visiting the Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale and really can't wait! It's in Milner Hall, a former church and sounds really stunning.

I went to the last one at Swanmore back in February and it was wonderful. Those boot sale ladies certainly know how to pick a venue!

It's definitely not your traditional Wedding fair. The majority of the stalls are newlyweds selling on their pre-loved wedding items along with local businesses hosting stalls in keeping with the quirky concept of the day.

There's more info on their Facebook page here including opening times and seller information. Will you be heading to Winchester on Sunday? If so I'll see you there!
