8th anniversary

The Huzz and I have been married 8 years today.  It feels like yesterday, and yet also so long ago (both in good ways).

We married on Saturday March 22nd 2003 at Somerford Hall, Brewood, Staffordshire. Our wedding 'party' took place over a whole weekend.  Friday evening dinner and party, with my brother-in-law's band playing, guest appearances singing from the bride-to-be and girlfriends and groom-to-be with his friends as backing singers!  A great way to start our celebations.

The sun was out the whole weekend - blue skies all the way. Friends and family arriving from around the UK and from far off countries.  Everyone was so relaxed, including us.

My Huzz-to-be made a pre-wedding speech that brought tears in my eyes.  We drank champagne with our family and friends before the ceremony (just the one glass - who wants to slur their wedding vows!?).

At 4pm we walked into the ceremony room together, hand in hand, with 'Light My Fire' by The Doors playing.  We were singing too.

The fragrant smell of hyacinths filled the room.

I read my poem, taking deep breaths to stop the tears of joy.

We kissed before we were pronounced husband and wife - we couldn't wait!

Laughter and joy filled the room.

When we left the room as Huzz and Wife, 'Voodoo Child' by Jimi Hendrix was playing.

We had a fabulous dinner, wonderful speeches, music and dancing, photographs and memories.

The joy, the fun, the friends and family.  Our wedding weekend was unforgettable.  The past 8 years have been unforgettable too.

Happy anniversary Huzz. Here's to the next 8. xxxxxxxx
