The form has been signed, and the money has been paid - we have officially got ourselves wedding photographers! Two! Well, one company made up of a couple - so double the shots for the same price. Happy days indeed.
We now get to spend some time thinking about the 'pre-wedding shoot' - a (free!) chance to get used to the camera, to find out which kind of shots we like, and most importantly, to get to know the couple who'll be bossing our family and friends about on our big day. Whilst Fiance isn't quite as enthusiastic about it as I am, I have to say I think it's a really good idea. Mainly because we get to choose the location - and my one and only suggestion so far has been the wonderful Baslow Hall - the gorgeous country house hotel that we got engaged in. It was an amazing place, so any excuse to go back suits me just fine! And it just feels like it would be the perfect reminder of the start of our engagement and the fun journey it's led us on.
So, I am now sitting back and revelling in the knowledge that we have a venue, a date, a photographer and a dress. Everything else can fall into place closer to the time. This is a lovely feeling.
I shall continue to enjoy it as we arrive at the inevitable time where Bridezilla turns up with her trials, tribulations, and wedding related epiphanies. Today, she's taking a flight - and of course, things don't go smoothly...
