10 years ago ...

... I was here

marrying him

in this wonderful setting

on an island in South Devon My dad and stepmum offered amazing generosity and hospitality hosting a weekend house party at Burgh Island. We were fortunate to have the hotel to ourselves for the whole weekend, I felt so lucky and very much the princess!

Being there for the weekend meant that we had a relaxing afternoon on the Friday meeting our guests as they arrived. The evening was then a 1920s style fancy dress party complete with live jazz band. Our guests did us proud with their outfits and truely entered into the swing of it.

Steve and me

Mum and me

I can't believe that was 10 years ago. So much has happened in that time - the arrival of my beautiful girls and the loss of my darling mum.

Through all the tears of sadness and happiness Steve has been there and I'm so glad that we made a committment to each other on that day. The transition from singleton to wife and mum hasn't been without its difficulties, but ten years on we continue to work through
any problems that we have and I'm proud of our achievements together. We have shared some amazing experiences and I am blessed with wonderful memories.

Steve - thank you for the last 10 years and here's to the next! I love you x
