Wonderful Wednesday 18


A slightly different Wonderful Wednesday this week, focusing on just the one wonderful tidbit. It's been a lovely week with lots of moments that have made me smile but one in particular that I'd like to dedicate this post to.

Monday was our first wedding anniversary, which surprised us both as we felt that we've done so much over the last year but at the same time can't believe that a whole year has passed already. I thought I'd share what we got up to interspersed with some photos from our day last year...as I still love looking at them!




We both booked the day off (there's something particularly special about a three day weekend not shared with most of the rest of the country) but decided to make the whole three days time for just us. We finally (!) started working on our wedding album, went to mass at the lovely little church we got married in and spent some time pottering around the area afterwards just reminiscing. It's in Farringdon in the City of London so while it's full of suits during the week, it's practically deserted during the weekend. We spent most of our wedding weekend there this time last year - our reception was in the Crypt below the church, we spent our wedding night (and the following night) in a gorgeous boutique hotel down the road and met our friends for catch-up drinks the following day in a pub near Smithfields Market. 

On the day itself this year we went to the Bleeding Heart Restaurant, which catered our wedding. I made a point of choosing the wines we had on our wedding day (it was lovely to get to enjoy them myself this time - you talk a LOT on your wedding day, who knew?!) and we had a really perfect meal, even being given some free champagne in honour of the occasion. Tiddly at lunchtime on a Monday? Goodness me, what a way to start the week!


It's been a fantastic first year of married life and I'm really excited about what the future holds for my mister and I. He's a keeper.

I hope your weeks have been just as wonderful!
