One year


One year ago today I married my best friend.

We were so lucky to enjoy the most wonderful day filled with loved ones, sunshine and laughter. The weather was perfect, the gardens looked beautiful, the reception was stunning and the photobooth was without a doubt the best thing I’ve ever spent money on. Seriously, I spent most of the night in there.

And then of course there was Kevin, who looked the most handsome I’ve ever seen him decked out in his suit and tie and surprised me with the most beautiful wedding vows I could have imagined – even after eight years together he still has a few tricks up his sleeve!

A year on, there’s still not a single thing I’d change about the day. Well, other than remembering to eat more wedding cake!

Husband & Wife


There’s no denying that the past few weeks have been some of the most magical, busy, exciting and nerve-wracking weeks of my life. While High Tea with Dragons has ticked along like normal (thanks to the help of some fabulous blogging buddies), I’ve had a three week holiday from blogging… to get married!

The 24th of January was without a doubt the best day of my life – I married the most wonderful man in the world, in a beautiful garden ceremony, in gorgeous weather, surrounded by our family and friends. It was just perfect.

So much time and effort went into making the day so special – think hand-stitched table numbers (thanks Mum!), a gorgeous photobooth backdrop, and making and packaging over 700 (!) pieces of marshmallow – it would be remiss of me not to share a few of the details with you!

Sunday was filled with two things – I bet you can guess what… yip, wedding planning and baking (LOTS of baking!).

I hope you had a fabulous weekend and ready to take on the week ahead. Here are five things to get the week off to a great start…
