When I grow up

Saturday 17th was an extremely special day, one of my childhood best friends Amy got married to her sweetheart and best friend Grant. I'm gonna take you on a trip down memory lane. I've known Amy since I was 11 years old and she was one of the first friends I made when I first started the big scary world of Secondary School. She was in my tutor group and we lived only a road apart and became friends instantly. We walked to school together everyday for years, spent the majority of our lunch money at the local sweet shop on Malteasers and flump marshmallows. She was always infinitely cooler than me choosing to rock up to school in her excuse for our school uniform and she was the first person I knew to have a mobile phone.

Today I looked back at old photos of us and got really emotional! How insane is that? But a happy emotional; at how much we've changed, learnt and grown as girls who you could now say are women. Ahem...someone cue the Britneys Spears please.... "I'm not a girl...not yet a woman...." ha ha! 

I really cannot get over how time really flies and how much we've all grown. It's quite scary really, the times us girls used to sit around talking about which boys we fancied- (we actually wrote out one day who we wanted to marry and what kind of man they would be). We'd spend hours on MSN Messenger, we'd play The Sims at each other's house and when we got a little older is was all about how to score alcohol at the next sleepover! Yikes!

It was a simply magical day filled with lots of laughs and magical moments....Did I mention I caught the BOUQUET!! hahahah! You have to check out the video below of how rowdy it got...not one of my most elegant moments! ha ha.

What I wore....Dress- French Connection
Shoes- New Look
Flower Hair Clips- Claires Accessories

So here's to here's to you Amy and Grant 
may you share a lifetime of love, laughter, health and happiness.
