Our discs with our photos are now in our hot little hands.
Overall I am very happy with them.

I thought I would recap the day in pictures.
I woke up really early (6:30) for the 3rd morning in a row.
I was greeted by bridesmaid T who was dutifully asleep on our sofa bed.
By 8 L, my maid of honour and Christine, M's sister had also arrived along with our hair and make up team.
Our flower girls arrived at 12 as they didn't require a lot of work and it kind of kept them out of our hair until they were needed. They were really well behaved. Having only met each other twice before, they promptly promised to be best friends until 4pm.
My blue shoes. I was kind of concerned about what M's reaction to this colour would be. I absolutely loved them . I had to walk away from Manoloh's in Hawaii for a cool 900 plus tax so these at 80 were a fair substitute and probably the most comfortable heels I have ever worn!
M did not notice my shoes until we got back into the car after the ceremony. He LOVED them! He basically shouted that I had blue shoes! He keeps remarking how much he loved them. Winner!

Then it was time to go. We thought we had plenty of time. Let's have some more pictures we said. Uh
I was the perfect bride though. I think I was 5 minutes late.

Yup. I'm Katie, he is Matthew.

My cheeky cake topper. Our photographer made us recreate it
The night went so quick. We did have a few hiccups. My grandfather tripped over in the courtyard on the way to the photo booth. He hit his head, broke his wrist and cracked some ribs. My grandmother got so stressed about it that she ended up in hospital too. Now the silly duffers are apologising about missing the rest of the reception. This all happened between dinner and dessert so things got postponed for a little bit. The show did go on though once they were off to the hospital. About 10 family members came up to me one after the other to make sure I was OK because I got a little bit upset about it all.
Any who. Back to the good stuff I will leave you with a photo of our first dance. We had dance lessons. 5 of them. Learning the waltz and sort of choreographing some moves so we didn't look like idiots. The only factor that we didn't really properly account for was the trickiness of my dress. After the first lot of spins I half tripped on my dress so I basically got Matt and I to stick to basic waltzes and sways. It was a bit of a shame that we couldn't have done it properly but I would have ended up on the floor.
We did the dip at the end.
I pull funny faces when I dance.
