JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

This thing called love

When I first met the CG, I was in lust. Then I met him again, and I wasn't so sure.

Don't get me wrong, I was still in lust. I just wasn't 100% convinced about the banter. I really didn't think he was very funny at all, which in my world is pretty much a deal breaker. Turns out, I was right. He's not funny. But the thing is, he so unfunny, it's funny. If you get what I mean.

Before we went to Thailand for our real wedding, the CG and I popped over to our local town hall to take care of the paperwork. Read: we didn't want to add another layer of complication with a foreign country involved in our visa paperwork. So we got married before we got married. No biggie.

True to form, however, the CG couldn't let an opportunity to dress up slip through his hands, and neither of us would have dreamed of not taking a few pics.

So we signed our papers and swapped our haribo rings.

Took a couple of formal "us at the registry" shots.

Before heading to the pub and having some real shots.

We spared no expense and took the bus back to the station.

Before jumping on the train and having our first dance.

We were pretty ecstatic.

Especially when we found ice cream along the way. Nothing beats ice cream when you've just gotten married (yes, we did serve up ice cream at our real wedding as well. Like I said, NOTHING).

Before we went on a little spin around the merry-go-round.

It was a lovely day with my bestest friend.

Happy legal anniversary, babe x


  1. Such a cute post :)
    I love the idea how a wedding doesn't have to be super crazy big or over the top, it just has to be special for the two of you.
    And the best part? Both of your inescapable massive grins in every photo
