The Luck Of The Irish (And Scottish...Oh And English)

Our little bundle is going to be quite a mixture with Grandparents from Ireland, Scotland and good old blighty!

Luckily for us the Irish luck was with us when planning our wedding!

Unofficially we were thinking of getting married some time next year but decided to bring things forward when we found out about the baby.
In the circumstances we were, initially, more than happy to have a registry office ceremony followed by a meal and a bit of a do at a local venue with family and close friends.
But as we started making arrangements we began to become a bit disappointed at the prospect of compromising our ideal wedding.

Then my lovely Mum sent James this link!

Within an hour we were getting married at the lovely Parklands in earlyJuly!!!



Parklands is a 17th century mansion set in 100 acres of deer park and it's perfect!!!
I felt like Jane Austen when we went to have a look round!
Better yet we got a fantastic last minute deal and the on site wedding planner does all the work for us!!
After the booking was made we breezed through getting our suppliers, photographer, florist, invitations and cake no problem!
Next Mum and I went dress shopping and I found the perfect one in 40 mins!
And who said planning a wedding is stressful?
We really have been so lucky!
Is it any wonder we're smiling??


Lots of Love

karen said...

Hiya hunni
Wow congratulations on all of your great news.
You are sooo lucky that you managed to plan your wedding with ease. We actually cancelled ours twice due to certain family members interfering and saying " You can't do that, I don't like it". Then we decided that actually it was OUR DAY and so we went off and planned it all without telling anyone about it and do you know what? We all had a great day.
((((hugs)))
