Kim: 11 months to go
So we’re eleven months away from W day. Not much is sorted yet, but the part that has made it all feel real is – booking the venue – hurrah!
Ben and I are from Hampshire and both imagined we’d get married there. Moreover, I grew up near the New Forest, and this area seemed the obvious choice – it’s a gorgeous setting for a wedding (if you’ve never been there, put it on the list!) and we’ve been fortunate enough to be part of many friends’ beautiful big days there.
But, as you might have guessed, we’re decided on somewhere at little different. Life moves fast, things change and we’ve ended up choosing the polar opposite, our new home: London, LDN, The Big Smoke!
The day will start with a simple ceremony at our local Town Hall council chambers – we just couldn’t resist the dome shape and radio microphones on all the seats. Next up, we’ve hired out a cracking Camden boozer, and we’ll be scooting our nearest and dearest over for a jolly good knees up! Here’s to a joyful day of honest food, good wine, and our favourite people showing off their questionable moves on the dance floor…
We wanted a day where everyone could relax and enjoy themselves – including us – and I can’t think of a more perfect way than in an informal surrounding, in the city we love. Nowhere is more vibrant and exciting than London in the summertime, and if the sun fancies rocking up to wave us off into married life too – well, that would be the cherry on the (yellow) cake.
