Last week I shared a few photos from my lovely friend Amy's wedding, and as promised I'm back with even more photos from her evening do. By this time the photos became a lot more blurry thanks to far less steady hands, shoddy lights and a few too many drinks. It was so good being surrounded by some of my favourite people, especially as I don't see them anywhere near enough now.
One place you could not keep us out of was the photo booth. So much fun and so many props, it was hard to stay away...
Way back at the end of July one of my best uni girls got hitched in Hereford, and what a day it was. We all gathered at the nearby Travelodge to get our glad rags on and head over the to church together to watch our Newmie become 'Newmie' no more. Needless to say Amy looked absolutely beautiful and the whole service was perfect, I only cried once and I promise it wasn't because I was so jealous of the Beetle. I can't quite believe it has been over 3 years since we were sat in our uni house, drafting the perfect flirty yet cool yet casual texts for Amy to send to Stu, planning every date outfit and giving pep talks. They're such a great couple and really bring out the best in each other.
Seeing some of my favourite girls all dressed up was so nice, to this day I still think Kelly looked SO Hollywood, and Amy and her 8 month old bump were just blooming - the bump which is now a gorgeous baby boy who we've all cuddled to death and fought over who got to steal him, ha!
I had to share all of these photos because they make me laugh so much. We thought we'd be clever and lift up the bride, well you can see what happened...
Amy and Stu really lucked out on the weather, it was scorching (there were a few lobsters around by the time the evening do kicked off), it was just perfect. I've saved the evening photos for a second post, because we all know I'm snap happy ;)
Last month I got in to a bit of a panic when I realised I still had 3 and a half weeks of holiday to use before christmas. As we were having great weather I quickly booked off two weeks in August, and a week in October to get out and enjoy autumn.
Although I did spend half of my time off inside, sorting through my possessions in a bid to declutter, I also got out and about for some of my favourite hobbies: bikes rides, time at the allotment, trips to the beach, charity shop shopping, and day time gymming.
Budeligh Salterton is probably my favourite local beach, despite the pebbles. It's quiet, beautiful and so so pretty. Anywhere with pastel beach huts is pretty awesome, am I right?
Rich bought a storm trooper and I had far too much fun creating scenes with it, poor Lilly!
