We went into this marriage thing thinking things were going to stay pretty much the same. Recently, I’ve been lead to believe that when you try to keep things the same, that’s when they start to fail. Because a marriage was never meant for two people to just live together and do things each to their own. Marriage is about doing life together and showing up for each other – in all aspects.
Alex and I decided to be spontaneous and went on a mini getaway to the New Forest (one of my favourite places – I love the wild ponies!). He showed me his best posing face and told me he was the best photographer. Then I beat him four times in a row playing card games, ha ha!
A surprise engagement session had been a dream of mine for a while and Simon somehow managed to pick the most amazing date for it; literally the only snowy day in England since 2012. It was u-n-b-e-l-i-e-v-a-b-l-e-! And honestly, so beautiful.
Eeeek I am so excited! This is something I've been thinking about for a while and this morning I just thought. HECKIN YES, let's do it! 🙌🏼
I guess it was kinda suitable to do it today of all days. Because, five years ago TODAY, Early May Bank Holiday in 2013, things were about to change for good, forever. And that's what I'm telling you allll about on the podcast today!
Today we went down to West Wittering Beach by Chichester and I think I realised how much I miss the ocean. Maybe if you're a countryside gal who is now living in the city, you might know what I'm talking about.
During the months and weeks leading up to our wedding day, this was something that really stressed me out. When I thought about being photographed, all I could see were my own imperfections and insecurities on display, staring back at me.
Inside Hammersmith Town Hall the chitter chatter of excited guests was bouncing off the walls. Exchanging vows, the groom choked back on his tears - completely overwhelmed and overjoyed with the moment. There was enough love to fill the whole room, and then some.
Oversized balloons filled with colourful paper sprinkles. Homemade white chocolate scones. A wall full of pictures, and more balloons. Giggles and laughters. The sharing of stories – first kisses, first dates and when he knew he wanted to marry her. More laughter, spilling over into tears of pure joy.
I'm Anna, 25, and I'm originally from... you guessed it! Sweden—the land of Ikea, Spotify, three-point seat belts, zippers and a nationwide coffee-and-cake loving philosophy. Contrary to my Viking ancestors, I'm quite short (5'2").
