Today is our silver wedding anniversary. Yes, 25 years ago we were married in the church just down the hill and 10 days later we flew off to start our married life in New Zealand.
It was a very small wedding (only 25 people) - very last minute as we were originally going to wait until we returned from New Zealand to marry but we didn't want to wait any longer. After all I had been waiting to marry him all my life.
We had no money. I had a hired dress, found only days before and 2 wisdom teeth taken out less than a week before the big day! The most important thing was that I wanted to be Anth's wife..hired dresses (however awful it looks now with it's hoop petticoat!) and chipmunk cheeks weren't really the issue. Well fortunately chipmunk cheeks didn't actually appear..phew!
We are 25 years into our journey together and I've loved every minute of it - the good and not so good. Today we are spending the day together, a night in a hotel and a meal in a posh restaurant.
All this and me wearing a Cath Kidston dress too..!
