8 days until the Vow Renewal....

I really haven't blogged a great deal about our vow renewal, mostly I didn't have time and also I didn't want to bore people by going on and on about it!

So it's now 8 days until the big day, I want to blog just a little about it as this is my blog, it's history and I want to remember the feelings I'm having now, forever.

So I suppose everyone knows that the Ceremony and reception are both being held at As You Like It - Jesmond.

Our theme is 40's/50's vintage glamour and I can't wait to see what everyone looks like on the day.

I wanted to share our invitations, if you love some paper perfection you can click to see them here, we got the Enchantment range in red and they were super lovely, Paula who runs Heart and Design is simply the most fabulous lady to deal with, she really cares about her clients and she even designed us a vow renewal certificate to match.

Another lady I must mention is Lydia at the Jesmond Cupcake Company, my hubby and I had a fabulous morning tasting cupcakes and they really are delish, I thoroughly recommend her.

Now then, through photography I have been lucky and priviledged enough to make the best friends and 4 of them are shooting the vow renewal, James, Matt, Mark and Jamie will be literally making my photographic dreams come true as for the first time we'll have a photograph of us all as a family and also hubby and I will have some portraits we'll treasure forever.

Our ceremony is going to be officiated by Joel who's wedding I shot back in 2008, I met Heather and Joel when I shot their wedding and we've become really great friends which has been so lovely for me as I've been able to share in the joy of their little daughter Toam who always greets me with a smile.

After our ceremony which is actually been written by Joel and Heather we'll be leaving As You Like It to go into town for some photographs with the boys, I'm thoroughly excited about that bit as it will give hubby and I some time away from everyone to enjoy being renewed!!

Then it's back to As You Like It for some afternoon tea before we swing into the evening doooooo with music being provided by DJ Mark Young.

Music is really important to me and to hubby, if you want to know what kind of songs we'll be having on the play-list I created an iMix in iTunes.  Just clicky the link and you'll be transported, now wouldn't that be a lovely thing to do for a wedding!

2 other ladies I must mention are Emma and Lisa, i've worked with them on several occasions in the past and I know they're going to give me the best hair and makeup i have ever had, if you are looking for hair and makeup artists extraordinaire then these are the ladies to contact.

I'm so utterly excited, I get butterflies every time I think about it, the girls and I are booked into an executive suite at the Novotel next tuesday so we can relax before the excitement and commotion of Wednesday.

Stay tuned to hear more about the vow renewal :o)
