Watching the Royal wedding, makes me think of my own wedding, Paul and I got married Valentines Day 2009, it was a beautiful day, one we will always remember. So perhaps you'll forgive me for sharing a few of my layouts from my wedding album. Any of you who have been following my blog for a while will probably have seen these layouts before, but I don't see any harm in re-posting them today, as it's a special occasion, and there are so many new readers who probably haven't seen them.
(This layout was made using the paper I used to make the wedding stationary)
As I sit here and write this millions of people from all over the world are gathered in London to witness what is, whether you like it or not, a historical event. Me personally, I'm sat in the comfort of my living room with my family watching the ceremony and the parade. Until yesterday, I wasn't really that bothered about the whole Royal wedding, but having followed a bit of the coverage it sparked my interest.
(This 1st layout shows the transformation of my hair)I know a lot of people don't think we need a Royal family any more. As a Brit myself, I have to disagree. Us Brits are notoriously a bit different, a bit quirky, and I think that having a Royal family is a small part of what makes us the way we are, it makes us a bit different from everywhere else I guess. We (normally) can't compete for the weather, there are better beaches in other countries, unless you like them a bit more rustic of course, but it's our history and quirkiness that attracts visitors the most, and the Royal family are living history.

Until now I think I've sat on the fence about this subject, but this fairytale wedding has made me feel proud to be British, I'm enjoying the ceremony so far, even if it's a little religious for my tastes, but they can't have a Royal wedding without it.
(Trying to get into my corset dress with help from my mum)The only thing that makes me laugh about this wedding is how the press are refering to Kate Middleton as a "commoner." I'm sorry, but have they heard the girl talk? There is no way she is common! However, she comes across as a really nice girl, and she must be brave as hell to go through all this, so I say good luck to her.
(Here's a layout about my amazing dress)
For those of you who are married like myself, think about how nervous you were on the morning of your wedding day, I simply can't imagine how nervous Kate must have been this morning. Before I got married, I didn't think I'd be nervous at all, but come the morning of the wedding I was a nervous wreck. Not because I thought Paul wouldn't turn up, after all, he was my fiance and my best friend. It was the thought of having to walk into that massive room of people. The fact that they're family and friends was irrelevant. So times that by a couple of million and I guess that's how Kate is feeling.
(This is one of my favourite photos of myself from the day)
Most little girl's dream of marrying a Prince, and Kate is doing just that. Her dress is stunning, I think she looks amazing, so demure and actually very regal, and Will, although he's not actually my cup of tea, looks very handsome in his uniform. What an amazing ceremony, definitely worth watching. Thankfully it's not raining.
