I'm living proof that fairy tales do come true.
I met the love of my life rather late in life, long after I dared hope that I would get another go at love and happiness. But Simon was so worth the wait.
Our wedding day was perfection, in spite of a few minor glitches, not least of which was a frantic trip to to the bridal shop on the day to sort out something dress related, literally hours before walking down the aisle. I truly cannot remember any other time that I felt more beautiful, more adored, more special, in such exquisite surroundings, with all the people I love and care about most in the world, in one room. It was EPIC. We laughed, we cried. The excitement was palpable, the love visible and the day exceedingly memorable, forever etched in my heart and mind.
We are incredibly blessed that our life together reflects the beauty of our special day... we live it every single day in word and deed, everything just seems to fit, like we were always meant to be as one.
Thank you for voting, your support is much appreciated and best of luck to all the other gorgeous brides.
