The wedding

It's been 6 weeks now since we got married(it feels far longer!) and i have finally got around to popping a few details on here along with some of our photos. 
Theres over 200 photos in all but i've tried to avoid putting many on with people who may not want to appear on my blog!

As i was 8 months pregnant when we got married, i really struggled to find a dress that would fit and that i loved as much as my original wedding dress. I ended up wearing a maternity dress from ASOS, with a cream lace top and layered skirt. The dress wouldn't have suited a huge bouqet, so instead i went for a simple posy from Etsy. I wore a vintage bracelet from Etsy and another bracelet borrowed from my mum.
My shoes were Vivienne Westwood for Melissa Lady Dragons and i had these fab diamante stickers for the bottom as my something blue.
 My 2 younger bridesmaids wore cream dresses with bow detailing on the waist and my older bridesmaid wore a pink strapless dress from Topshop. All 3 had rose wrist corsages from a local florist.
Our wedding car was a gorgeous white Rolls Royce, it was so comfy, i could have sat in there all day!
I look very serious here! 
I walked in with my dad, to Etta James-At Last. The other songs we had during our ceremony were, Kissing You and Nat King Cole-L.O.V.E. We spent so long trying to sort these out but i can't really remember hearing them now! I think this is where the nerves hit me.
Confetti time! 
 This group photo was requested by my mum as she wanted a shot of all of her 11 grandchildren together(including Alex as a bump), as you can see the littlies didn't comply, but i still really like the photo as its nice and natural.
Our sweetie table went down really well, especially with the little ones. I actually didn't end up eating any of it! I'm glad we took the time to do it ourselves rather then pay a company to do it. 
Our first dance was to These Arms of Mine-Otis Reading, we were worried about our dance but it was actually quite nice to have a couple of minutes to chat to each other.
I loved how our photographer suggested a photo of our hands on the bump.

This is my favourite photo from the whole day. Seb looks just gorgeous(not that i am biased of course)
So there we have it, a short summery of our day. It literally flew past.
