We did it! We are now husband and wife :)
I will recap the crazy week and big day in a few installments since cramming it all in one post will probably exhaust you.

The week before...
Julia, my maid of honor, arrived in Manchester from Sweden on Monday the 6th and my parents, brother and grandma arrived in London the same day. Needless to say, my stress levels went through the roof, haha. Trying to organize everyone and where they needed to be and what they needed to do frazzled my nerves. Although I should have just relaxed and enjoyed things a bit more, I was too wound up in the days before. We did manage to go out for some fun with Julia and took my family to Ambleside for lunch. It was great to see everyone and show them our house and around where we live. So all in all, although I was a stress case, the week with my family here before the wedding went pretty well.

In the next post, The Day Before! Until then, I'll leave you with another snap from our special day...

Donington Park Superbikes!

For Paul and Owen's thank you present for being in our upcoming wedding, we went to Donington Park to watch the World Superbikes.

It was a wonderful day out and we hope to go again!

Only ten days to go until I'm a MRS!!

Tomorrow I'm heading further north with my in-laws-to-be to pick up the chocolates for the wedding as well as doing a bit of shopping. Things are coming together, but even as more and more falls into place my stress levels seem to be rising. I'm trying to relax and enjoy my last days as a bride, I know it'll all be over in a blur, but I'm also excited to move on to the next phase of our lives :)

Neil picked up his suit today and mentioned that he didn't have cufflinks for it and being the spaz that I am I accidentally blew it and gave away that I'd purchased him some. Even though I planned to have one of the bridesmaids deliver them to him on the wedding day, I caved and gave him his wedding present today. They are rhodium coated, brushed silver cufflinks with three small diamonds in each. I picked them for their classic sophistication, much like hubby to be :) I also have one other little present up my sleeve so he will get a small surprise on the big day :)
