What did you do last weekend?
I got married!! That’s right after a decade Andrew and I decided to tie the knot in an intimate and low-key affair.
It all started four months ago when I went to my wardrobe and found a foreign shoe box.
At closer inspection I discovered it was a Manolo Blahnik box.
To give you some background, 5 years ago when on our big year-long adventure and in New York, I lived one of my life long dreams and got to buy a pair of Manolo Blahniks.
While in the store for well over and hour (Andrew was thrilled 😉 ) I pointed to a pair of Yellow Satin Hangisi Pumps and said to him ” You don’t have to buy me a diamond ring, just buy me a pair of those!!”
Andrew had walked into our room and I had begun to cry, as I start to realise what was happening. I opened the box and lifted the shoes out of their bags and there they were; the yellow satin Hangisi pumps! As I continued to cry, Andrew told me I better try them on and of course they are the perfect fit and I felt like Cinderella!
As we had just announced to family and friends that we were pregnant we decided to keep this to ourselves and wanted to do something very low-key. So planning began to tie into our 10 year anniversary.
Only eight weeks ago did we tell our parents and siblings as we needed them to get a day off work and told them what we were doing.
On Friday last week in front of our parents and brothers and sisters we got married and became husband and wife.
It was perfect and one of the best days of my life!
The Melbourne Treasury Building (Registry Office) was a wonderful venue and my dad still got his dream of walking his little girl down the aisle.
We followed up Friday with a dinner on the Saturday evening with our very close family and friends, where we announced to them that we had got married.
More to come on that in part two!
Thanks for stopping by
