I cannot believe that I have been married almost a year now, it has literally flown by so quickly! It literally feels like yesterday I said I do to my incredible husband Paul, I still get a tear to my eye reminding myself of the moment that he turned around as I was walking up the aisle, I will never get over that feeling I felt in my heart when I locked eyes on him.
Married life has been absolutely beautiful, it has been an incredible year with Paul, we have been through so much as a couple over the last 5 years (almost) but now we’re married it feels like it’s our time to continue writing our story as husband and wife.
The Wedding Day
I know people turn round and say getting married is the best day of your life, and honestly it is, without a shadow of a doubt, obviously apart from when you have children and you bring them into the world, but that moment when you see your loved one at the end of the aisle it is one of the most nerve wrecking moments of your life.
And we’re married! I remember this photo being taken, it took me a while to sit down because I had an absolutely massive train hence why I’m sat quite awkwardly, but I couldn’t frown for the life of me, I was way too happy to even think about frowning. We did decide that we wanted to have a Christmas tree behind us because it was going to be the last time we had all our family together before Christmas and we wanted to share our wedding day with our friends and family but also Christmas!
When I said my train on my dress was huge, I wasn’t joking. I absolutely adore this picture, I love looking over the rolling hills, I hope that soon Paul and I will go back to where we got married because it was an incredible place to stay and get married!
This photo was taken by a friend of the family who takes incredibly photos, this photo is one of my favourites in the world, our first dance literally felt I was walking on air, I was so happy and when I looked into my husbands eyes, I saw everything that I wanted in my entire life, the person that I want to stand by through good and bad times, the person that I need forever and a day. He makes me so happy.
This photo was taken on 1st November, and I think it literally sums up our marriage perfectly, we have such fun together, we laugh, smile, cry, support and do everything for each other. There isn’t a day that goes by that I never want to wake up by his side, we drive each other mad, we have a lot of banter between us but we know that we love each other more than anyone or anything in the world. We make each other so happy it’s ridiculous.
People might think your marriage cannot be perfect because relationships aren’t like that, and trust me our marriage is nowhere near perfect, we get so grumpy sometimes, and we do argue sometimes, but honestly, a good argument does us good. The reason I say that is because it makes me realise how lucky I am but also that we do have different opinions on things and that is okay.
Every relationship has it’s ups and downs, Paul and I are two very imperfect people who have chosen to make a commitment to each other for the rest of our lives. We overlook each others imperfections but we take time to love each other for them too, I know I wouldn’t change Paul for the world, even if he drives me crazy, but I love him and that is stronger than anything in the world.
We have only been married a year, but I am so excited to see what the future holds for us, I am so excited to see what the years have to offer us, I want our love to grow every moment of every day, I want us to at some point hear the pitter patter of little feet, be happier than ever before and to make our lives the happiest possible.
I am so lucky to be married to my best friend, my favourite person, the love of my life, I have been so lucky and the best feeling in the world is knowing that we have made that commitment to each other.
Here is to the rest of our lives together, I love you always Paul.
