A very special wedding tale!

This past weekend I travelled home, not only to spend time with family and friends, but also (very importantly) to celebrate the marriage of two of the latter -  the wonderful James and Mitch. The boys have been a part of my life since the end of 2011 and I couldn't now imagine my world without them in it. To be asked to celebrate their day with them was truly so special, such a lovely gift of friendship, and I can't thank them enough for doing so. Watching them make their vows, and declare their love in a room full of those who loved them both in return, was a special moment in my life and a memory I will cherish forever more.

I also rather excitingly got to attend with my bestest catfish, Leah, who is always a never-ending source of delight, super-smiles, lots of love, and much much laughter and fun. We met for lunch the day before, after not having seen each other for nearly 2 months, and had a good catch up over sarnies and multiple beverages (3 out of the 4 were Leah's!) at our favourite Cafe Monde.

Blurry and excited to be on our way!
Sunday morning dawned, and with it a day full of laughter, love, happiness, champagne, cupcakes and shoeless dancing. Tears sprung to eyes (although smiles never left our faces), hands were clapped, arms hugged, precious words were spoken, hearts were opened, dresses were swooshed, glasses were raised, songs were sung and memories were made.

To James and Mitch....
I wish you a life full of everything the pair of you could ask for. You have brought so much happiness to mine and my goodness do you so very much deserve the same in return. Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for being my friends. And thank you so very much for inviting me to witness you starting your new life together as Mr and Mr Allen!!

To my fabulous Tori's Tales comment'ers - I cherish each and every comment you take the time to leave me and, because of that, I reply to each and every one in return. If you have a Twitter account, then that's where you'll find me replying (because, let's be honest, I live on Twitter. In Twitter. Around Twitter. Twitter). If you don't then fear not, because a) this means you don't say stuff like the things above and b) I'll find you elsewhere.......
