The Perfect Venue

On the plane home from Vancouver my future hubby bought me The Knot magazine. My heart must have dropped a million stories when I saw the checklist. Things you don't even think about are listed. Whoever said weddings were about the Bride and Groom were wrong! 
So far our planning has been a roller coaster. 

BUT, there is one thing that has kept me smiling and makes me feel  light as air when I think of it and that is the venue... We looked at many places online and visited a few but it was a drive through the Cotswolds with my brother-in-law that brought me face-to-face with my fairy tale. I was really worried about finding the location, everything depends on it and the places we visited were nice but nothing compared to this feeling. It gives you butterflies and bubbles in the tummy. Amazeballs!

Last week I had the joy of showing TidyBoy the location, and after a walk around the village, a peek in the church and the venue he turned to me as he opened the car door for me and said, 
"I don't like it... I love it!" Happiness! I was made up!

Down this very small one track road with a turning you hardly notice you drive a typical country road until you hit the most picturesque village in England. The first thing you see is a gorgeous french Riviera style manor. A little stream trickling around a country inn and the tiniest of churches nestled between them. Anyone in their right mind would picture the most romantic wedding there and I did. There was nothing like it. From finding that venue everything else just fell into place: the colour scheme, the theme, the centrepieces! It was everything my childhood self would have imagined for my wedding! 

No matter what other crap gets thrown in the lead up to the actual day I cannot wait to marry the man of my dreams, with my Mummy by my side and looking like a Princess in Purple Heels!
