The (hi)Story Of Us

I thought I’d mark my first post on Boho Bride with some background info, to lay the foundations of what I hope will be an enjoyable and inspirational blog for brides-to-be…

Our engagement was eight years in the making and our wedding will mark ten years to the day we met – on our first day of drama school. Yup, Adam and I were budding actors back then…and what a journey we’ve been on since!

Along the way, we’ve had to endure time apart, witness each other kiss strangers…and close friends (a hazard of our former careers!), embrace our inability to pay rent on a jobbing actors wage…a move out of London, buying a house…accepting our inability to pay our mortgage on a jobbing actors wage, a move to Cardiff…career changes for us both…and now, finally, a celebration of our decade together and a new exciting chapter in our lives, as husband and wife.

Like most couples today, we are paying for our own wedding – which, for the most part, we’re finding quite satisfying and I think ultimately we’ll be v.proud of ourselves. Our budget is modest, at a number-crunching £10,000 – so every detail of this wedding must earn it’s place!

And just to add to the drama; we’ve decided to move to be near my parents in Devon, as my Papa has been ill – and that made my heart yearn to be home!

In two months time we’ll make that move, which then gives us ten months till W-day! So we hope you enjoy seeing our plans unfold, as we explore the wonderful world of weddings…
