#BestOf2015 WEDDING

by - 08:30



Our wedding was the most beautiful day in my life. We got married in a beautiful church from the 12th century, Église Saint-Limin de Thuret and celebrated in the most beautiful castle in the middle of Auverge, Château de Maulmont.

We planned a small wedding of only 70 people and we were preparing for this day for almost nine months. Every day was about the wedding, we planned and prepared, organised and arranged and we wondered. How is the weather going to be? Will everyone come? Me: Will he like me in my dress? What about my hair, makeup? ... everything was about IT. Thankfully it took "only" nine months, I wouldn't be able to do it for longer... :)

Yes, it was stressful at times.
Yes, we didn't always agree on everything. 
Yes, it cost us an arm and a leg.

But...

It's was so worth it!

The W day was everything I ever wished for and more. Our families came together and met for the first time. My mum was by my side... oh, how I didn't know how much I needed her to be there for me, with me! You might be surprised if I tell you that I spend my last night as an unmarried woman with my mum. She was with me the whole time during my preparations with my bridesmaids until the church where she walked me down the isle. I felt the closest to her as ever, it was a mother-daughter strongest feeling I've ever experienced.

Our friends came from all over the world and rescheduled their somer holidays to share this moment with us (the struggle of getting married in August). My most amazing bridesmaids were by my side during the whole nine months and managed to organise a fabulous hen-do in Paris on top of that! I'm sure they were the happiest people on earth when the preparations were finally over and we got finally married! haha I truly couldn't do it without them!

Carin, Lauren and Zuzana... if you're reading this, you know how much I love you, what our friendship means to me and how thankful I am, for the rest of my life! You've worked so hard on this wedding and I know that it was this perfect only thanks to your help! 

It was a day full of emotions, as I can imagine every wedding is. I never felt so loved in my life ... this feeling I will never forget.... when my heart melted every time my husband looked at me.

We also cried a lot ... everyone cried. Millions of emotions in one day, unconditional love and, for me, also an enormous sadness.

Sadness because the most important man in my life couldn't be there and I wasn't sure if I can do it without him. I would give everything in this world to have him there ... to hear his voice, see his blue eyes and hear him laughing out loud like only he could ... I would give all to have him there and watch me getting married to the love of my life.... to have him walk me down the aisle....

It was the hardest thing in my life, to get married without him... but I know he was there, looking down on us ....

... this is all I can tell you about the most special, spiritual and emotional day of my life! The photos, that my friend Katie took, will tell you the rest.

If you're getting married any time soon I'd give you only one advice: Do what makes you happy and what you want, not what someone else might want you to do. It's your day, you're only getting married once so have a blast and don't forget to steal a moment or two, while you're busy celebrating your marriage, just for the two of you. It only takes a second to take a deep breath together, holding hands in a quiet place, looking into each others eyes, you don't have to speak, just feel the love... and then go back and dance, sing and be merry. xx
