On 1 March 2013, I experienced the best day of my life.
My wedding day.
I was lucky enough to marry my best friend in the whole world. Someone who lets me be me – silly, over-emotional, honest, passionate, loving – and accepts me for all of these things (and more).
On 1 March 2014, we celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary.
One year of wedded bliss, stress, laughter and tears.
One year of married life.
So today I want to share with you the vows we exchanged and the video of our one perfect day…
The Bride’s Vows
“You know that I’m never lost for words.
And you also know how I get when I’m overwhelmed.
I knew today would be an overwhelming day.
So I found some words that capture what I wanted to say to you on the biggest day of our lives…
When words run dry,
he does not try,
nor do I.
We are on par.
He just is,
I just am
and we just are.”
The Groom’s Vows
“Today I feel very fortunate, to have you in my life and also as my bride,
As your beauty shines just as brightly in here, as it does on the outside.
Since I met you, you have been my other half, my other ear, my other one,
But today the word ‘other’ will be no longer, as today we become one.
You have given me the gift of happiness, I feel at home when we are together,
May our love be modern enough to survive the times, and old fashion enough to last forever.
From the first day we met, infectious and appealing.
And now, when I stand here before you, 3002 days later, I still have that feeling.”
