the ceremony

I'm not going to say too much about the wedding itself, I think it should be relatively private for us and our guests.

So here, instead, is a string of little moments, taken by Anna, with snippets of memories.

Holding hands

Friends reading for us

Godparents reading for us ( this is where I lost my nerves as we both knew James godfather was nervous about getting this right- I just held my breath the whole time)

Singing -the vicar complimented my dad on his volume!he's used to having to get a wedding going, not ours though, my family are all very musical and loud!!

Catching annas eye in the corner, and getting big grins back. It was so comforting to have someone friendly I could see!!

My bridesmaids whooping when we were announced husband and wife, (their excuse being that they couldn't clap for holding bouquets-apparently my mum told them off!)

I love this photo,
James' mum: are you alright mrs D?
Me: yes I am mrs D!!

And then walking out as husband and wife, to one of my favourite pieces of music, which neither of us can remember, and seeing the monocle again!

Greeting family and friends outside the church, many hugs and kisses, many group photos, a small amount of confetti, thrown mainly by tiny people, and then away!


  1. It's all so beautiful! I love the first pic of you holding hands - so sweet and romantic. I bet it all seems ages ago now. I'm still buzzing from our wedding though even though 6 months have passed! Looking forward to seeing more x x

  2. Oh I love these pics! You and James' mum - and I love the content expression on your face when you're being hugged :)

    And the laughing pics too!

  3. I love that top photo of you holding hands. Beautiful as always my dear.

  4. Love these photos - they are truly beautiful Rebecca :) x

  5. I love your bridesmaids whooping! A very good solution when you cant clap!

    I love your photos as well, no wonder you couldnt choose between them.
