Bit of background:
Chris and I met back in 2008 at Harley street. We were both having consultations for gastric band operations.
We met in the waiting room and startedtalking.
Short story is Chris had his and it work sgreat, I had mine and it didn’t work :-(
We were engaged after 9 months and set the date for 2012 so we could afford the wedding.
6 months before the wedding my dad suffered a severe stroke which left him paralysed on his right side and unable to speak.He has been having intense physio so that he could walk me down the aisle.
We packed up all the cars with dresses, kilts,centerpieces, table plans etc and made our way to the venue.
We unpacked and had our briefing with the events staff.
Then we put all the dresses In the rooms.
By 4pm all the bridesmaids, my dad, my mum, in laws etc had arrived and we had our rehearsal.
My dad did really well in the rehearsal we worked out as the aisle was really long I would walk halfway on my own and then meet him halfway.
My sister is also disabled and is in a wheelchair but was determined to walk and she also did really well.
Whilst we were doing the rehearsal the heavens opened and we were treated to a thunder storm with lightning and hailstones!
After this we all went to nandos for dinner and then Chris went home with the best man to our house and I stayed at the hotel with mum and the 6 bridesmaids.
We all went into one room and drunk champagne and ate Belgian chocolates and French macaroons all supplied by thebest man, which I thought was a lovely touch.
