Thankyou, and goodbye

Trislander SunsetMarriage – tick. Wedding Breakfast – tick. Dancing the night away – tick.

We should be flying Thailand-bound about now, and so we thought we’d take the time to say thank you to everyone that came, as well as everyone who couldn’t come but sent their best wishes. We literally wouldn’t be where we are today without you, and we hope you had a great time!

We’re heading for Krabi via Bangkok (avoiding any protestors on the way) for 10 days of relaxation. I’ve come to the conclusion that, in reality, honeymoons are there to help you get over the efforts of planning weddings. There are so many small things that need to be thought about! And, in my limited experience, it seems that the 2 month, 2 week and 2 day intervals are when the efforts rachet up another notch and things get a little more crazy.

But we’ve done it. And we’re off for a little while to reflect on it all. Thank again to everybody – it’s been emotional. 😉

See you soon….

Spliced, officially

The Happy Couple!

Well, who’d have thought.

It’s been 2922 days since Michelle and I started going out. And by now we should be married and about to tuck in to a feast at the reception.

In the (exactly) eight years we’ve known each other, I’ve found the meaning of that incredibly cheesy phrase that Tom Cruise uttered in Jerry Maguire: “You Complete Me.” Cheesy, but true. As I’ll say in my speech, Michelle really is the most genuine, caring, full-of-love person I have met, forever worrying about everyone else but herself. I am lucky to have met her, and now we have the whole life ahead together. It’s an intoxicating feeling.

I hope, actually, that we complete each other. I hope that I support her enough to warrant her support of me – and I hope that we continue to grow as we career disgracefully towards middle age.

So, on with the eating, drinking, speeching and dancing! There’ll be magicians, videographers, photographers, enormous chocolate fountains, a caricature and 170 people cavorting around and having fun! We’re surrounded by friends and family that have helped make us who we are today – and that, apart from the vows, is the most important thing, after all…
