The BIG Wedding Day 😀
“Wedding” literally meant the purchase of a bride for breeding purposes. 🙂
The word wedding comes from the root meaning to gamble or wager. The Anglo-Saxon word “wedd” meant that the groom would vow to marry the woman, but it also meant that the groom paid the bride’s father. This is believed why it is still customary for the father-of-the-bride to “give away” his daughter.
What means marriage … to me…? Hmm… Marriage to me is a partneship, a lifelong commitment to support and be there for each other no matter what… It means trusting, giving, security in each others love and support; it means always having someone to talk to, laugh with, confide in, and work together with… 🙂
Our Wedding Day… 😀 I am not sure how do i begin to describe this day? The day…was just perfect for us, a sunny day, perfect for starting the most unforgettable day 🙂 It was the best day of our lives, and it was indeed the Best Day Ever!
The week leading up to the wedding was a mixed bag of emotions… excitement, laughs, nerves, stress … pretty much, but most of all a lot of love. 🙂
It was very important to us, from the get go, that everything would be kept simple, classic… with a kind of vintage mood… and that the focus of the day would be about celebrating with our loved ones. Our photographers, Lavinia and Patrick – C’est Lavi Photography, really captured that feeling in their beautiful photos.

My only advice to anyone planning their wedding: don’t stress the small stuff, and savour every single moment. It goes by so quickly… people tell you that, but you won’t realise until you’re truly in it… 🙂
