I feel very lucky to have married the most handsome and caring husband any woman could wish for.

This popped through my door yesterday.

It’s a scribbled note left on the printed order of service by the priest who’s reading our banns in London. It reads ‘Banns read for first time. No objections raised!’

These are the nearest thing I’ve seen so far to what I’d like my wedding ring to look like.

From St Kilda Jewelry via little winter bride

We’d both like to have something engraved inside the ring, perhaps the date of the wedding or a quote that is personal to us. I joked with my fiancé that we should have ‘Steal this ring and I will send Jack Bauer to kick your ass’ – I have that inscribed on the back of my ipod!

Tin Wedding Whistle by Ogden Nash

Though you know it anyhow
Listen to me, darling, now,

Proving what I need not prove
How I know I love you, love.

Near and far, near and far,
I am happy where you are;

Likewise I have never learnt
How to be it where you aren’t.

Far and wide, far and wide,
I can walk with you beside;

Furthermore, I tell you what,
I sit and sulk where you are not.

Visitors remark my frown
Where you’re upstairs and I am down,

Yes, and I’m afraid I pout
When I’m indoors and you are out;

But how contentedly I view
Any room containing you.

In fact I care not where you be,
Just as long as it’s with me.

In all your absences I glimpse
Fire and flood and trolls and imps.

Is your train a minute slothful?
I goad the stationmaster wrothful.

When with friends to bridge you drive
I never know if you’re alive,

And when you linger late in shops
I long to telephone the cops.

Yet how worth the waiting for,
To see you coming through the door.

Somehow, I can be complacent
Never but with you adjacent.

Near and far, near and far,
I am happy where you are;

Likewise I have never learnt
How to be it where you aren’t.

Then grudge me not my fond endeavor,
To hold you in my sight forever;

Let none, not even you, disparage
Such valid reason for a marriage.

Odd but very cute!

This is the church where we’re getting married – Holy Trinity in Long Melford, Suffolk.



It was built almost entirely in the 15th century at a time of growing prosperity among the local cloth merchants. It was and is my fiancés church since he was a young boy so its very special to be getting married there.


It is a large church which looks even grander as it rests on a small hill overlooking Long Melford village.



The choir will be in front of us and we’re hoping to get the candles lit as even though it will be the afternoon when we get married it will still be fantastic to have candlelight.


Exciting to think this is the aisle I’ll be walking on in six months time!

Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings talks about her do-it-yourself wedding scrapbook. I like the idea of the scrapbook being almost a ‘time capsule’ and recording what was happening in popular culture around the time of your marriage. By the same token the idea of pasting the front page from a newspaper printed on the day you get married insures that in 50 years time you and your husband can have those ‘wow, did people really used to wear that?’ and ‘Oh yes I remember that Britney Spears girl. Bit troubled wasn’t she?’.

And its a good way to keep all those bits of paraphernalia from your wedding like menus and suchlike in one place.
