I don't usually start off a wedding blog talking my family or the bridesmaid but I will explain...
So this week my first born turned 4. In September she will be starting a new chapter in her life, as she starts school!!! Whilst at home, our mini dictator is certainly not lacking in confidence, she still however has a vulnerable side. One of my main worries is whether she is going to be ok and will she make friends.
Now rewinding back just a few weeks. It was a hot day in June, a very hot sunny day without a cloud in the blue sky. I arrived at the beautiful Lilleshall NSC where I met the gorgeous Trish and her best friend, Jane. These ladies have been friends since they were at school together. They really bounce off each other. As I watched them preparing for Trish's special day, I couldn't help but wish that my daughter finds her very own Trish or Jane when she goes to school.
It was in fact Jane who introduced Trish to Andy and in doing so, started the wheels in motion which ultimately led to this beautiful day when they officially became Mr & Mrs Dawson. And what a day. The venue was stunning. The gardens burst with colour as the sun shone down. Andy and Trish were surround by their family and friends who were all in good spirits, especially Barbara, Trish’s mum. There wasn't a dry eye during the speeches which were emotional but also hilarious.
Trish probably didn’t think this day would ever happen. A few years ago whilst on a gorgeous beach in Thailand,Trish skilfully caught the bouquet at her brother’s wedding. Witnessing this Andy immediately did his best Usain Bolt impression and ran!!!! Thankfully however, Andy had a change of heart. What was lovely was that whilst Usain, I mean Andy, was pegging it across the sand, a photographer caught this moment. As a very thoughtful wedding present, an enlarged print was handed to them on the special day!
Despite Andy’s initial reaction to the thought of marriage, what was clearly apparent throughout the whole day was how much this meant to Andy and Trish and how much love they have for each other. Trish is most definitely Andy's princess….
