My Moments that Matter; 2013

Hello Honeybee's <3

I Have been browsing my Twitter feed this morning and spotted an awesome competition from the Beautiful Hannah at 'Away with the fairies' Blog (you can see it here) .. she and the lovely people at Lloyds bank are giving away an iPad mini to someone very lucky! I have never used an iPad but always thought they looked very fun!
Hannah has asked each entrant to write a post about their moments that mattered to them most in 2013, and this got me thinking about my most special times from last year...


2013 was a mixed year for me, there was good & bad times, but the good definitely outweighed the bad!

Without a doubt the moment that mattered most to me last year was when Dan & I booked our wedding <3 We won't be getting married until next year but just booking the wedding was such a Big & Exciting step in our lives!

We had been engaged for just over 2 years at that point and Dan had just got a new job, so we decided it was time to start making some plans! 
I had had my eye on one venue in particular for some time (I don't want to name it as it will be a surprise for our guests, but there is a picture of it above), so I showed Dan some photos of it on the internet and we booked a viewing!

We looked around the beautiful grounds in the sunshine, taking everything in! I have always wanted an outdoor wedding and this place just seemed perfect, there is lots of land, beautiful old trees, a lake with a jetty and a gorgeous barn to have the wedding breakfast and festivities in! I fell in love with it straight away and to my happiness, Dan did too!

It was everything we wanted and, amazingly, within our budget - so we booked up right away. Our wedding day isn't until the 26/09/2015 but we now have lots of time to plan and get everything perfect and how we dream!

We have since done little bits of planning, and I, of course, have been looking at some dresses! I'm really not sure what style I want so I have been very open minded! 

We also got to try some of these wonderful hand crafted chocolates from the lovely New forest Chocolates - you can see their website here! They were so pretty and so yummy!

Another thing I am so excited about is that we booked our wedding portraits to be done by the amazing Luke Woodford! He has done Fashion shoots all around the world and his wedding portraits are some of the best and most unique I've seen ... you can see his work here!

I am so excited for our special day and booking it was so important as it meant we were 1 step closer to being husband & wife!!

Even though we all go through tough times in our life, we must try to focus on the good things we have that so many don't! What were your moments that mattered in 2013?!
