Well its only been a couple of years since I last updated this blog…! We have moved house form city to countryside and now have a little daughter who’s about to turn one in a couple of days and is the love of our lives. I’m a bit rusty so forgive any mistakes I make but thought that people might (finally) like to see more of the details of the wedding and whether the plans I made worked out. I’ll post separate posts about different aspects of the wedding over the next few weeks.

My future mum-in-law is amazing. Not only is she making our wedding cake, she’s also making me a wedding coat. She received the pattern from America a while back and after a few adjustments, she’s finished the mock-up of the top half of the coat. It fits like a dream – its such a pleasure and privilege having a piece of clothing made-to-measure. I can’t wait till we go shopping for the coat fabric and buttons.

She also made her beautiful medieval-inspired wedding dress herself which sits in a glass cabinet in the hallway of my fiancé’s parents home.
