It’s all done and dusted now. I’m married!
You kind of expect the whole thing to be much more life-changing but to us the whole thing seemed almost like ‘just another day’. We deliberately kept things low-key though as we didn’t want some silly, grandiose, over-the-top wedding. Dru and I have been together for almost 8 years now, 3 of those we have been living together so I guess nothing really has changed. We’ve only made official what we already knew was true in our hearts.
I guess we’ve been married a long time before now in spirit and now the government recognises it too. Mmmmm, tax benefits….
I was joking with Dad about my new name (I changed my name, as well as my wife to a double-barrelled name) and how it sounded quite posh, as double-barrelled names are want to do. We were joking about when we head over to Seattle for the honeymoon, acting up like British aristocracy for any anglophiles we bump into but to be honest, I’m not sure we could pull it off, we don’t have the aristocratic look, if there is such a thing. Maybe we should call our child (when we get around to having one) Lord/Lady?
All in all it was a great day.
Wheee, look at me, I have a wife!
