Wow, you guys - I feel like way more than a week has passed since the wedding, it feels like months! The souvenirs of the day are littered around the flat - my petticoat I had made especially with less than a week to go, my vintage handbag, the bobby pins, and my wedding bouquet sits in a vase on our dining table with the blooms getting fuller and more open by the day.....it feels so surreal and to be honest I'm still taking it all in. I am full of joy.
So many people have told us that they loved how real the day was, and that made me so very happy because that was just what we wanted. Something genuine and relaxed that truly reflected who we are. But most of all, I think the day was about more than our love - it was just about love itself. That was what I saw in every guest's smile, felt in every hug, heard in every laugh and basked in from the taxi ride to the registry office to the quiet bar afterwards when only a handful of us revellers remained. I never thought a day could be so perfect.......everyone was smiling and laughing and rejoicing, there was just so much warmth and happiness....and there were bellinis!
I have so much to say. So much. But for now I'll just give you a few more pictures:
“It is also good to love: because love is difficult. For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke
