Happy 3rd wedding anniversary hubs

Three years ago today, I married my best friend. We had our wedding at Hogarths Hotel in Solihull, and spent the day with all our family and friends from all over the country and even the world, as my half brother, who I had never met, flew over from Australia with his wife especially for the occasion.




We went for a movie theme as we met at Blockbuster when we were students almost 10 years ago. We played movie music throughout the day, with 'Come What May' (Moulin Rouge) and 'Grow Old With You' (The Wedding Singer) playing at the end of our ceremony and 'I've Had The Time Of My Life' (Dirty Dancing) as the last song of the evening, naturally (but without the lift!). We had popcorn in old fashioned paper bags as nibbles, clapperboards as our table centrepieces, cinema ticket stubs as notecards for our guestbook and even gave mini Oscar awards to people during the day for being the 'best supporting male' and so on. The tables were named after our favourite romantic films, we had a quiz for our guests that was full of movie trivia and we had a special themed cocktail menu too.







We spent a lot of time putting a personal touch on every part of our day and had such an amazing time enjoying every moment together.





As a surprise for my new husband, the day after our wedding I booked us into the penthouse suite at Malmaison, complete with it's own cinema and sauna, before we flew off to New York on our honeymoon.




Now, three years on, we are no longer just a couple; we're a family of three. Last year on our anniversary, we had only just found out we were having a baby and now Ethan is here and making us smile every day. How things change in such a short period of time is amazing but the one thing that doesn't is how I feel about Stephen.

We've always been close and most comfortable in each other's company and today we are celebrating three years of wedded bliss as a little family, down in St Ives where hopefully the sun is shining, followed by an evening watching our wedding video with a glass or two of bubbly to toast what the next year may have in store for us.

I love you hubs. Completely and forever.

    1. You're too kind :) If only I still looked like that... Ah well, I have Ethan rather than a slim figure but I don't care - he's the best!
