Right about now!

I decided right at the very start of our wedding planning that I really wanted to do a Dad/Daughter dance.  I am very close to my Dad and getting married and now having my own family to be part of and look after has a huge significance to me. Luckily my Dad agreed.

When researching songs to dance to I came across quite a few with very meaningful lyrics but nothing beat this one!

Right at this very moment, me and my amazing Dad will be shuffling away to this.

All I can hope is that I can hold back my tears.

Our first dance

By the time this post publishes we will have been man and wife for all of 5 hours!

Dinner will be over and hopefully everyone is relaxed and ready to hit the dance floor.  But first it's our turn :-)

We have never really had an 'our' song so coming up with something for our first dance was difficult at first, we sat down with a bottle of wine and our ipods out trying to find something that we both liked and that had some meaning to us.  This is what we came up with!

Christy Moore - The Voyage 

I am a sailor, you're my first mate
We signed on together, we coupled our fate
Hauled up our anchor, determined not to fail
For the hearts treasure, together we set sail
With no maps to guide us we steered our own course
Rode out the storms when the winds were gale force
Sat out the doldrums in patience and hope
Working together we learned how to cope
Life is an ocean and love is a boat
In troubled water that keeps us afloat
When we started the voyage, there was just me and you
Now gathered round us, we have our own crew
Together we're in this relationship
We built it with care to last the whole trip
Our true destination's not marked on any charts
We're navigating to the shores of the heart
Chorus 2x

When we first heard the lyrics we just fell in love with song, we have been on a very long journey to get to where we are today with lots of ups and downs but we have and always will be there for each other. 
We think this song just sums up our lives together and we are both looking forward to our future as Mr and Mrs Spillane!!

Today is the day!!

Well this is it , it is finally here! Its our wedding day!!

Obviously I am not blogging on the morning of my wedding from Spain, I have written this post and another few that will appear later today T-8 days before our wedding and boy is it making me very excited doing so!

At this very moment I will be arriving here:

Santo Cristo Church - Marbella

Hopefully the sun will be shining like in this picture, all our friends and family will be gathered with us to celebrate and the love of my life will be waiting for me at the altar.

Thanks for everything Maurice, I love you with all my heart and soul and can't wait to grow old with you. xx

Just over two weeks to go :)

Well the excitement is well and truly growing in this house, in 16 days we will have tied the knot! Eeeep! And in 11 days we will be flying out to Spain.

My dress is home with me and my chiefy and me will be packing it into it's travel box the night before we fly.
We have sourced plastic glasses for our welcome BBQ and the lovely owner at our after party bar is providing finger food on the house.
Our bag for Spain is partially packed and the honeymoon one is shaping up well.
The men's outfits are getting collected next Tuesday and the flower girls dresses have been altered.
I have been prancing around the house breaking in my wedding shoes much to the amusement of those witnessing it.
Our 'out of town' booklets have been posted and everyone knows what's happening when.
The last minute presents have been ordered and packed.

And most importantly me and the hubbie to be are totally in love and 100% ready to become husband & wife!!
