It was 20 years ago today......

That MrVV & I got married :) It was supposed to be a very small simple affair - just the 2 of us and close family. I wasn't even going to have a proper dress. In the end it grew just a little bit - a friend made my dress for me, another made my wedding ring and we ended up with about 30 people in the church and a slightly bigger party in the evening.

We're really looking forward to our break this weekend in Brighton. Just hoping the weather is kind to us as we really want to do some walking and of course light shopping ;)

Its time to reveal the winner of my little bloggie birthday giveaway too - the names were all put into the vintage china sugar bowl (quite apt as 20 years is apparently your china anniversary);

The lucky person who's name was first out was;

Now I was feeling kind and as I had so many lovely people enter, I thought I'd give a little runner-up prize too - this will be a little gingerbread house & something else small. This goes to;

Ladies could you please email me with your details and I shall send your parcels out to you next week :)

Now most bloggers know that Dawn from Life on the East Coast and I are friends - we've known each other for about 25 years now. Our husbands were friends at school and J was best man @ our wedding. This picture was taken just before I left for the church - Helen (who made my dress), me & Dawn;

See you soon

Hurray for 1990 - what a great year to get married! But I do look back on my photos and think 'meringue' - I blame 4 Weddings and a Funeral for that...

Congratulations to the two of you and have a wonderful weekend.

Congratulations - we've just had our 22nd anniversary - sadly no trip away for us! There's no mistaking that very late 80s/early 90s style is there - my dress was made for me by a friend called Helen too! Have a great weekend hope the weather improves for you xx
