“The worse the wedding the better the marriage”
Well our wedding ticked every box, the sun was shining, the venue looked stunning and I actually felt like I did look OK in my dress (despite massive reservations about it) but what really was lacking was love.
Bold statement I know. I’ve seen and spoken to so many brides who say that it’s an amazing day because it’s about you and your husband. However at no point did I feel emotional. I didn’t stop and think about what we were doing and why. It really was just another day. (A very beautiful, expensive and full of all our favourite people just another day)
I sound ungrateful I know, but I never dreamed about being a bride and I love Simon most in those little private moments, like when he held my hand to walk me to the toilet after my C-section or when he lays my pyjamas out for me after I’ve been at work all day. These moments are where I see love and our wedding day wasn’t that.
The most important thing about our wedding is that I gained a surname I can’t pronounce and I have incredible photographs to treasure. I am probably one of few to say that I wouldn’t do it all again, but luckily I’ll never need to.
Weddings aren’t the happiest day of your life, you still have many of those to come.
