Yesterday was my 14th Wedding Anniversary. Yes, 14th !!! On the 28th November 1997 I acquired the title Mrs.Clarke. A title I feel very lucky to have. Mr.C became part of my life at a time of sadness and chaos and brought with him lots of love, kindness and calm. It wasn't long before I was head over heels and after a whirlwind romance we set the date.
We were married on a cold but bright day in November at the lovely Stanneylands Hotel in Wilmslow. I wore a cream dress by Hilary Morgan Over the years this has spent time in my daughters' dressing up box and the detachable train made a great 'roof' when den building. Now redundant it is packed away as you never know this may one day be 'vintage'. I carried a bouquet of Cream Roses with a Salal leaf collar by Chelsea Flowers and our cake was by Edible Art near Stockport.
It was only a small wedding, I didn't have bridesmaids, table centres, ushers, flower girls, etc. etc........... just a bride and groom with family and friends, a gorgeous wedding breakfast followed by lots of wine and dancing. Perfect!! Speaking of perfect, I know there will be many of you out there who think they have the perfect partner but, I am sorry to disappoint, as in fact the perfect partner belongs to me. (If you ignore DIY skills that is!)
14 years on we are still happy, still in love and we have 2 beautiful daughters.....now that's perfect.
