Big wedding, Small wedding, Does it really matter?


After planning & Booking our wedding 3 times & Each time have someone moan about it for one reason or another, It’s too far to travel. So you change cities & It’s still too far, (20 minutes in a taxi) I should be bridesmaid not them. Moaning because we didn’t want certain people there! Can you ever win? In my case no! Shouldn’t the bride & Groom decide where they want to marry? Who they want there? Who is bridesmaid & Best man? Yes they should, But it doesn’t always work out like that. So annoying!

Doing it for us two.

In the end me & My now husband had enough! All the planning & Deposits that got wasted because of others. We sat down & Said we are doing this for us after all! No one else. We took the plunge & Booked our wedding for 4 weeks time. Yes that’s correct 4 weeks LOL!!

We booked our local registry office, Booked a lady to do my hair & Makeup, Bought our rings together, Bought our clothes to wear on the day as my wedding dress was in Newcastle 400 miles away & Give our notice! We were set & Ready. We didn’t tell anyone what was happening & When it was until the day before expect the very few we asked to be there.

The day arrived! The 23rd of December 2015 we stood in front of our two boys & Our two witnesses & Said ‘I DO’ the day we had been waiting for had finally arrived. Yes it was small & Intimate but it was perfect. We accomplished what we wanted to do with out all the moaning, Fall outs & Spending £1000’s. We got our wedding certificate & Left with our two sons & Spent the day together at home.

We all finally had the same surname!

Granted we got called for doing it the way we did. I would have loved a big wedding & To wear my dress! But you know what? I wouldn’t change it for the world. We have our happy ending after all.



Do what you want not what others want, Lesson learnt.

You can’t keep everyone happy! FACT!

  1. Weddings are a nightmare, you cannot please everyone all of the time!! Glad you had a wonderful day – why not book a big party for an excuse to wear your dress

  2. Yes! My wedding was similar with family members telling me what I should and shouldn’t do. Fortunately, I completely ignored them and did it my way.
