Going to the chapel and...

Well, the registry office in my case! After several years together I have done the decent thing and allowed Sarah to make an honest man of me!

We have been talking about it for quite a while but it never seemed to be the right time – too expensive, not enough time to organise etc... excuses, excuses. With an upcoming big birthday for Sarah we decided it was time to take the plunge. We gave ourselves a deadline of two weeks – just enough time to register our notice of intention to marry and went from there.

We have been talking about it for quite a while but it never seemed to be the right time – too expensive, not enough time to organise etc... excuses, excuses. With an upcoming big birthday for Sarah we decided it was time to take the plunge. We gave ourselves a deadline of two weeks – just enough time to register our notice of intention to marry and went from there.

When the day came I was incredibly nervous despite knowing Sarah for nearly 10 years. It was a very private intimate affair with just our very closest family and as a special treat from my parents a very talented professional photographer to capture the day. I don’t really enjoy being the focus of attention at the best of times so a whole day dedicated to just us felt quite odd. On the whole though it was a fantastic day filled with memories which we will cherish forever.    

And ultimately it is the start of a new chapter in our lives, time for a re-evaluation of where we are and where we want to be and to think of our future together as man and wife.   Exciting times!
