Magical Moments


The moment I stood behind the chapel door and waited for them to start playing the music so that I could walk to my husband and commit to a lifetime of love and support. When the door opened and he saw me, he instantly burst out into tears and could not stop telling me how much he loves me and how beautiful I look.

The moment we entered the reception as MR and MRS and our family and friends were going crazy with joy.

Our first dance when I slipped and my husband instantly caught me and helped me back up and asked me if I was okay and we carried on like champions and nothing happened

The Honeymoon


Yes we did go on Honeymoon. Phuket, Thailand
