A Southsea Wedding

May 25, 2009 No Comments

Thursday, Friday and Saturday were spent in Southsea for Katie’s wonderful wedding, and after the scare we had when Phil got rushed to hospital 6 days before they were due to say ‘I do’ the rest of the run up to the big day was bound to go smoothly.
We enjoyed;
  • 3 days of glorious sunshine.
  • A beautiful setting at Southsea castle.
  • Dinner with the families on Thursday night.
  • Croissants and sushi whilst getting prepared on Friday.
  • Very cool camera themed tables.
  • Many cupcakes. But not too many.
  • Interesting discussions with women in New Look {No, we ARE not buying wedding shoes 4hrs before the event, from New Look of all places, and no we certainly don’t care about the last wedding you went to. Sorry to be rude but we have 30 minutes to get to the hairdressers.  Ok.}
  • Wandering down Albert Road.
  • Open top buses to escort us from the registrar’s office.
  • A stunning bride and groom.
  • 2 very proud dads.
  • Too much Prosecco.
  • Far too much vino.
  • Loads of lovely food.
  • Drunken uncles dancing
  • Catching bouquets {but only when they were launched at me with some force!}

Katie looked beautiful, and Phil looked very cool in his suit/converse combination. And having had an operation 5 days before getting married i was thoroughly impressed with the amount of wine he managed to consume and that he was still standing at 2.30am when I crashed, very drunk myself. 
He wasn’t however so well the next morning when we all headed for the hotel breakfast. Ummmm. Antibiotics and alcohol. Good move. 
Having woken up fine, and feeling a little cocky about the lack of a hangover, mine proceeded to hit me around about Nottingham, after 3 hrs of driving! Nice. M1. Hot car. Wanting to die from a white wine hangover. The boy was so pleased when I turned up at his house, thrust a bunch of flowers in his hands and proceeded to climb into bed to sleep of the hangover.
