Hi Stefy! Nice you could enjoy a lovely lunch with your girls! I'm sure it made he time go by a little faster.

Yes, I agree with everyone - you made a beautiful bride, and I love your hair and you dress!

Dave's perspective / getting ready...

Hey everyone! So I suppose it's my turn to write about what I was doing before the wedding so that Stef can continue the report.

My dad had rented a house for the week of the wedding (with his girlfriend Laura and my grandmother), so I decided that staying at his the night before would be the best thing to do. I woke up at around 8:00-9:00 I think, slightly rather hungover

First order of business was to get a few cups of tea down us, shower, then head into town in search of food. We knew there was a big supermarket near the centre of town, so we headed straight there at a slightly slower pace than normal to see what we could find. For some reason unknown to man, there is no such thing as bacon in Lake Garda. We were walking round and round and round that supermarket for a good half an hour trying to find anything that looked even remotely like bacon! In the end we settled for a few packets of 'pork cubes' and some bread rolls.

We wandered back to the house, made more tea, ate the bacon alternative outside in the garden and played some cards to take my mind off of things. I wasn't nervous about anything that was going to be happening today, I was actually excited and just wanting to get going already!

At about 3:30 I had to go over to the hotel and pick up the button holes for me and dad, also give my mum her corsage (Which I may have put on wrong lol).

Mum and Paul (my stepdad) were going to be walking round the lake to the castle now, so we said our goodbyes and goodlucks, took a few pics, and off I went to get ready for the wedding!

Me and Paul

From left to right is my brother Josh, Myself and Cousins Tommy and Katie.

Our photographer came back with me to take a few pics of us getting ready.

Stef got me a little wedding gift as she knows I needed some and also because they are one of my favourite characters.

My dad was in the other room getting ready whilst Katy was taking pictures of the flowers and rings, she caught me having my one and only nervous moment.

I got dad some cufflinks to wear as well.

Then it was my turn to get ready. Dad was helping with my cravat as I had no idea how to, he had to ask one of his friends back in London if he could send us instructions, but it all worked out well in the end.

Ready at last, nerves gone, it's time to get married!

Hi Dave!

It's so interesting to hear your side of the "story" as well.
Love the cufflinks! What a sweet gift of Stefy.
The photos are all really nice. I love the one of you and your younger brother and cousins.

Next time you go to Italy and you need bacon, go to the part where they slice ham. You have to order it there and it might be a bit different to what you call bacon. But it's pretty tasty, I tell ya.

Sorry I haven't mailed your T-shirt yet, but I packaged everything today and there is just a tiny bit of space which I wanted to fill with a few sweets. So next week it'll be on its way.

Stefy love the pics of you in your dress - you make a beautiful bride

Dave thanks for sharing your perspective. Lol at LG having no bacon!

I love the pic of the rings in the flower and the gifts you gave each other on the day.

Great to hear you side of getting ready Dave. You don't look nervous at all, but quite happy I will say.
