The start of wedding planning...

This new year's eve just gone I've been engaged now for 2 years...
...which is a very long time but has meant that we've had a wonderfully long space of time to dream up ideas of what we'd like our day to be like, and to share our thoughts on what we want our marriage to look like.

It also means that it's finally 2012
- the year of the wedding!!

I can't quite communicate how giddy excited I am all over again currently.
This new year marked the transition from wedding dreaming to wedding planning.
(and the redressing of my notice board to my wedding board!)

So, after a week or so of beginning to turn dreams into plans, here's my wedding so far...


The view from the room our wedding breakfast will be held in.


As I'm English and Samm is Scottish, we're going for a style that reflects the coming together of both...

English roses with the classic Scottish thistle

Tartan and lace.

We're even having haggis at the wedding breakfast! 

It's going to be the middle of winter when we get married, 
so I intend to stay warm in the most beautiful ways possible...


...I'm afraid is still top secret.
But is, I promise, the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!


I now have my wedding scrapbook / folder well under way,
full of gorgeous pictures to be inspired by over the next few months

I've also introduced myself to the world of Pinterest.
Potentially dangerous but such a useful tool when planning a wedding.

Exciting times!!
