A Good Job, Well Done

I am basking in the glow of a fabulous wedding !

Amanda and Hugh got married yesterday and it was a fantastic day. She looked stunning in her red and white dress.

But it also felt like my day as I had helped to plan the wedding and we were part of the beautiful service - Ewan read the classic Corinthians passage and Sasha and I had the privilege of singing during the signing of the register.

At the end of the evening, when we are all a bit drunk, Amanda gave me a big hug and told me that she never would have been able to do it without me and that I was the best friend anyone could ask for and before we knew it, we were both bawling and laughing in equal measure!

Knowing she had the wedding she had always dreamed of has made me so happy. I haven’t been able to drag myself out of bed today and my body is aching from too much dancing and carrying things up and down stairs but …I feel brilliant. The only thing is, I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself now.

Maybe I should start planning a wedding for my daughter………!


  1. Or go into business for yourself...? ;-)

  2. Be content in the knowledge of a good friendship. It's as much as most of us can hope for. Well done!

  3. woot...way to go glad it went well for you...

  4. Maybe you've uncovered a new calling--if the bride is happy with the result then you've definitely done a bang-up job.

    It sounds like you had a great deal of fun. Anything that makes you feel that way is definitely worth looking into further.

    I only wish we could see some pictures!

  5. First ask ask her if she's planning to marry.

  6. Apparently it's now all the rage to have divorce parties....but 'your' wedding sounds even better, well done! I'd go with just enjoying the moment for now, in a week or two you may decide you have a new calling! :-)

  7. Good weddings are hard to pull off. Congratulations! :-)

    Take care and have a great weekend :-)


  8. Having to plan for the marriage of your own daughter is a great accomplishment any mother can have in her life. Way to go.:-)

  9. Nice work! Sounds like a fabulous day!

    I am constantly planning my wedding and I am not even engaged (shhh, I even have my wedding dress picked out...KIND OF).

    I was never the girl to do that kind of thing either, that's what happens when one falls in lurve.
