Other cool stuff you should know about: We practised our first dance in our pyjamas at 6:30 the morning of the wedding in our wee cottage. Halfway through we decided it was way too long and boring, so cut two minutes off it—best decision ever. Our brothers each took charge of a camera (one of them was a £10 super 8 ebay bargain) and we diy’d our wedding video (Meg’s note: watch it, it’s amazing.) My dress had pockets which I absolutely loved! We set off all the sheepdogs at 3am walking back through a neighbouring farm after the wedding which was scary and hilarious and broke the magical spell of walking home along a country lane under a bright starry night sky.
One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Hanging out with our favourite people the whole day when they were all just really bloody happy for us was the best feeling ever, pure joy.
Favorite thing about the wedding: We had a friend read an extract from Jane Austen’s Emma as our second reading.* As I listened to the last sentence, holding John’s hand knowing we were both blinking away tears I realised that we were indeed surrounded by our true band of friends. This made the fact that they all then spontaneously whooped and applauded at the end of the ceremony even more special and one of our favourite things about the day.
