Our First Wedding Anniversary ♥

July 03, 2015

{Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because that is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two } - Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres. My favourite reading from our wedding.
Today marks the end of this wedding series on the blog as it's our first anniversary today {!}. We're on a little romantic getaway in Dorset right now, staying at The Pig on the Beach with the yummiest breakfast, lunch and dinners overlooking the beach and walks along the coast. We'll exchange cards, a little present based on the tradition of paper, talk about all the memories from last year as well as watching our wedding video before we visit the Hampton Court Flower Show on the way home tonight. While memories of our day will fade over time, we're left with such an incredible partnership and I've never felt happier to be your wife.
