Me too, me too! Though as I’m marrying Crusoe I guess you know that, but as it’s highly unlikely that he’ll reply I get to tell you all about it - which suits me as I love talking about it. I have definitely become a Wedding Bore, but screw it, I only plan on doing this once so I may as well make the most of it.
**1. When’s the date? ** 12th July. 3 months yesterday, and yes, I’m counting!
2. Church/registry office/other? A hotel in Devon for a civil ceremony and the reception. We’re saying our vows standing over an ancient Roman well in the hotel grounds.
3. Reception? Same place - Pimms and canapes in the hotel courtyard after the ceremony, then amazing 3 course meal in the hotel’s Michelin starred restaurant (organic smoked salmon or chicken liver and foie gras pate to start, then lemon sole or sirloin of roast beef for the main, followed by either chocolate tart with an orange marscapone ice cream or a honey and pistachio parfait with a vanilla creme biscotti for dessert), then drinks and dancing in the hotel’s conservatory till midnight.
**4. Big or small? ** 75 - ish.
5. What have you got sorted yet? Most things. Invites are going out this week, next weekend I’m shopping for my wedding lingerie, the weekend after that I’m down in Devon for my hair and make-up trial and to try and track down my florist who seems to have gone to ground. There’s really very little still to do.
6. Honeymoon? Two weeks in Kalkan, Turkey, a gorgeous little port town that we spent a week in last October and fell in love with. We spent weeks trying to find an exotic honeymoon destination that a) we both liked the look of, and b) was within our budget, before deciding to go back there.
**7. What are you most excited about? **The moment I come face-to-face with Crusoe on our wedding day, and promise to spend the rest of my life trying to make him as happy as he’s made me.
