Your day so far sounds so relaxed which is lovely!!!

Are the pork cube things called lardons?! I remember having those when I studied abroad in Europe as that was all we could find which resembled bacon!!! I love the fact you wanted to make bacon sandwiches - it's the best way to start a day!!!!

Can't wait to hear more!!!
Thank you I just love my dress, I remember trying on a couple before I knew it was the one. Wish I could wear it again

Hey guys

How are we all today? Can't believe it's Monday already

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, hope you haven't all left out of boredom. I was meant to finish up the wedding at the weekend, but things did not go so well for me and I wasn't able to get round to it. Hopefully I can tonight though

Enjoy your Monday and speak to you all soon

You both have such a beautiful and loving family. I'm so happy that your day was so special minus the bites of course. Way to go Dave on the photo book! The cufflinks were very adorable. Did you have them made stef?

Thanks hun The cufflinks I got from the Disney Store over here in the UK. I got them well in advance and had them hidden for like 6 months. But when I saw them I knew I had to get them for him

Phew, ok, now I am all caught up and can't wait to read more.

Stef - You looked absolutely amazing, and I adore the little cap sleeves on the dress...so delicate! It looks like you had a really relaxing time leading up to the wedding, and what a beautiful location.

Dave - Glad to see you are going to give "your side" of the story as well. She hooked you up with some amazing cufflinks... and I hope the bacon cubes had a much nicer description in Italian!

Can't wait to read more from you both!

Great to know you're still here and don't worry am going to get this TR off the ground.

Hey guys

How are we all doing? Weekend going good?

Well I am going to get off my butt and finish the wedding part of the TR as I feel terrible for not having updated in so long. So here goes

Wedding Update

We left off with me setting off to the castle. We were running late and were in a bit of a rush, but we had to stop off quickly to touch up my hair and make up.

Touch up done, we were off. Was so surreal driving through town. Lots of people were waving and saying congratulations and blessing me. Was really sweet.

At one point we had to stop as our driver got a call from Pam saying we had to hold off for 5mins. I asked what the hold up was and he said that we weren't allowed to go up just yet. What?!? What you mean we can't go up just yet?!? Turns out that there was something wrong with the playlist I had made up, they couldn't work out how to use it or something. Dave can elaborate more as he was the one that saved the day

Whilst we were waiting we had attracted quite a crowd, but before long we were off. Katy was waiting at the entrance for us to take some more photos.

What we arrived in





I got stuck at this point, as my heel had gone straight through a gap on the step down


Can you believe that crowd behind us, so glad that I didn't take too much notice as I would have freaked out! Dad was saying it was like a crowd of paparazzi taking pictures.





Its a bit of a walk and this is only the halfway point. We had to stop here for a bit, before we were able to go on. So Katy took some more pictures.







I kept getting caught on the pebbles throughout the whole day, I was laughing here because I had gotten caught and the lady in the background kindly helped me out.







We got to the top and I was all ready to wow Dave on his first glimpse, but low and behold my clumsyness came into play and I got stuck yet again!





Not sure if he was crying there, Dave?








My mum was my witness, was glad I could include her in the ceremony

Our officiant











We both decided to add the Italian tradition of kissing the rings, which was really sweet.





and we were officially married!



But it wasn't over yet as we had other official bits to got through.





Dave's aunt was his witness.

Signing the register




Then it was done and we were officially officially married















Then it was time for group shots. I won't post all of them, just a couple of family ones and the big group one

My mummy and daddy


Dave's mum and partner and his dad and his partner.

Love this group shot.


We had to get a shot with Pam too.


We sent everyone off to a little bar where we had prosecco and ice cream waiting for them, so we could take our shots around the castle.















This is my favourite photo, am using it as my background on my laptop



Dave acting silly with my bouquet










It was at this point that Pam turned up with some ice cream and a welcome break as we were all starting to get hot from the heat.



Then it was back to work














I love this one

Dave wanted to get this shot of me looking out towards the lake with my dress coming through the gap




More silliness
















My hidden Mickey


Then it was time for the confetti shot. We had to do it walking up the steps because coming down we would have gotten a shot of some advertisings in the picture.









After the shots, we all walked down together to the reception. Dave's little cousin Katie had the important job of holding my train whilst we walked. She took it so seriously bless her







We have a few more photos of us walking, as it took a little while to get there. We finally arrived at the restaurant.



Our place settings




Our favours

Menus


Centrepieces, which turned out fantastic, was so pleased with them


My dad had bought this for us the day before






The starter, which was an anti pasti buffet




There was a bit of a kerfuffle of everyone trying to do my bustle, but we got there in the end


This is from our photo frame which we asked people to sign




Confetti still in my hair. Was still pulling the stuff out of everywhere by the end of the night


Father and son


I love this one, Dave's lil bro looks like he's be caught about to do something naughty




Our candles all lit up


The centrepieces in the evening, were even more gorgeous as the candle light glistened off of the table crystals. Was perfect




Dave's dad's girlfriend asked if we could have a photo together so off we went. Then all the others came over and asked for some photos, I felt like a Disney Character with people waiting in line
