….Stuart and I finally tied the knot! It only took us 7 years! We had a wonderful day with friends and family around us to help us celebrate. We got married back in my home town of Belfast, it was a cold, snowy but sunny day – we even had photos taken on beach!
Our reception was held outside Belfast at the stunning Clandeboye Estate, where we dined on Hog Roast, and good old Beef and Guinness Stew. We couldn’t decide on which desserts to have…so we had 3! Sticky Toffee Pudding, Lemon Tart and Port and Fruit Jelly for dessert, all topped of with Clandeboye Estate’s own yogurt. I don’t think anyone was hungry for a long time!
Since I love cake, and do enjoy eating and making cupcakes, one thing we had to have was a cupcake tower. After numerous visits to St Georges Market in Belfast we settled on cupcakes from Sarah at Marshmallow Grove, who created us a fabulous cupcake tower with 4 different flavours!
We then danced the night away, our first dance was Nina Simones ‘My Baby Just Cares for Me’ and every time I hear it on the radio it brings back good memories.
Last year to celebrate we went to Copenhagen, which was a great way to finish off our 1st year! This year we kept it low key for various reasons, so we had a cosy night in, with some pizza, bubbly and a cheesy film! Bliss!
