I mentioned in my last update post that it was Gemma's hen party on 14th August & we were planning a spa day before heading out for dinner & cocktails in the evening. It was the most lovely but tiring day! We met at 9am & headed to the spa for 9.30. We were greeted with champagne & breakfast, complete with the softest dressing gowns ever. We had full use of the spa all day, which included the pool, steam room & jacuzzi. Lunch followed at 1.30pm & after another swim in the afternoon, we left at 5.30 & headed back to Gemma's to get ready for the night ahead. It was absolutely pouring all day, so we literally threw on our black dresses & painted our faces before heading to Bill's for the evening meal. Myself & the other two bridesmaids arrived early to prepare the table for Gemma's arrival. It all was so civilized till the wine & champagne started to flow again.. & we ended up with pink feather boas & fluffy whistles wrapped around our necks! Good thing the wedding was the following Saturday & we had a week to recover..
Last Monday, myself & the girls went to Guildford for the day. We shopped till we dropped & ended up in The Tea Terrace, one of my favourite cafes. I've written a full post on this gorgeous little tea room here if you'd like a read.
Last week I managed to catch up with my girl Ricka over breakfast. We went to Cote, which is a lovely French restaurant in our local town. We both had a full English breakfast, complete with Earl Grey teas. Delicious.
James surprised me with these beautiful flowers last week, just look at those roses. I'm a very lucky girl. : )
Last Friday, myself & the girls went to get our nails done (day before Gemma's wedding) We all had French Manicures & went for lunch at a local café. The rehearsal began at 5.30pm at the church & we all headed back to Gemma's parents' for a BBQ. We were so lucky with the weather, it was absolutely beautiful.
& finally yesterday was the big day. It was one of the hottest days we've had in the UK this year, so you can imagine how warm we all were in our wedding attire! Gemma is the first one in our friendship group to walk down the aisle & say I do, so it was a very emotional day for us all! I can't thank Gemma & Ollie enough for asking me to be bridesmaid & making me apart of their big day.
How has your weekend been lovelies?
