wedding fever!

hello! remember us? i know, we've been rubbish and probably everyone has lost interest and thinks we never blog anything any more so it's not worth looking... it's kind of true! very sorry... but the house kind of took over for a while there and then we moved and we haven't got a study set up yet so the computers are in quite a depressing room (the only room with boxes yet to be unpacked!)
BUT there has been progress! Firstly, our house is fantastic and we're so happy there. we settled instantly and can't believe we ever lived anywhere else really. we have met some great neigbours, have assembled all our flat pack furniture without going mad and can now even sit on sofas. obviously all of this is great progress which deserves photos, but sadly i'm in hull at the moment, don't have photos with me and don't have the right software on the computer. you'll either have to wait or come and visit : P
and there has also been wedding progress! firstly, i got my dress! it's xxx and xxx with xxx and xxx and xxx. sorry! you'll really have to wait for that one! had the most wonderful day with mum and amy getting it though, it was brilliant, and now i can't stop looking at pictures of me in it!
then, yesterday we went to do a few little details. we went back to the castle to see the insides for ourselves again and it looked amazing, really really beautiful. it's going to be a magical day, especially if the sun shines, but even if it doesn't :) we can't wait now! and also we went to see javan liam, the photographer. what a character! a very nice man and very quirky! i think we all warmed to him very quickly and his photos are stunning, so i think all that's left is to book him for the big day.
so bit by bit things are being done. big shopping day today in leeds with mum and amy so best go and get ready. i will blog more often in future, promise! (and will try to put up some photos soon!)

back on track!

after a while of it just being house house house, we have reintroduced wedding thoughts! so now it's house house (wedding) house!
yesterday we went through our wedding magazines together, cutting out pieces that we thought were interesting. it lead to two ideas! probably i shouldn't be putting everything down here so you won't know everything about the wedding, but, well, i'm sure there will still be some surprises!
so, xavier had the idea of looking into whether we could make our own wedding rings, which led to us finding this website... and then i started to like the look of tiaras... i figure it might nice to lok a bit sparkly and princess like, especially since i don't really think a veil is for me. see what you think... there's lots to work out, but it's nice to be thinking of these things again!
also, we're trying to get photos of the place where we'll be getting married right now, so watch this space!!
Good night... Becks and Xavier xxx
