So I’m A Married Man!
So on the 8th of July, Catrin and I became Mr & Mrs Taylor and I can tell you, even now it still sounds weird. It’s not like we didn’t know this or prepare for it, it’s just that being called Mr & Mrs here on our (rather windy) honeymoon in Mauritius seems weird still. I guess it’ll start to fit and settle more as time wears on, I mean for me, I still have the same surname whereas for Catrin she now has a completely different surname and that, I’m sure feels very weird! The wedding day went fantastically well, no real problems, everyone managed to get from one place to the next with relative ease with only one exception being that my parents, with Liz & Ian in tow, managed to end up on the opposite side of the river to where the tea rooms where; oh well!
In the actual service I managed not to break out in to a fit of laughter like I did in the rehearsal the previous evening and we both carried our lines quite nicely. The reception straight after went well and all the speeches were fantastic and funny as is to be expected. The food was lovely and I was quite impressed with the champagne flutes and cups we bought from Party Plastics. The tea rooms was lovely and gave our photographer Fran some extra opportunities to take pictures of Catrin who looked stunning in her dress. Finally it was the disco and first dance at the Polish club and although due to nerves we didn’t do a full and proper waltz the first dance was memorable. The rest of the evening was fun and I’d like to think everyone enjoyed themselves that evening.
So now we’re on our honeymoon and we are having a good time, it’s just a shame we seem to have brought the wind with us from England. We haven’t really done much except what most people expect of a honeymooning couple and just chilling out. We’re halfway through it now and I just hope we get a couple of days without this wind! Either way though coming here has been an experience I mean the complete contrast of quality of life etc is certainly something that hits you when you drive from the airport to the hotel. Well here’s to the last few days of our honeymoon and the many years to go of our married life.
