I passed Hampton Court Palace on Sunday on our way back from Kingston
We got married in Winchester, because it was easier for our reception venue.
Your honeymoon sounds great too; we were considering Kenya, but at the time there was a lot of unrest there. Then we were going to settle on thr Maldives & Sri Lanka, until the problems in Sri Lanka started! Eventually we went back to the idea of Hawaii, and finally found a quote we could afford. We're doing the same thing in regards to having a chill-out week at the end. The second island we're staying on has nothing nearby at all, so we will be spending time lazing on the beach
Our wedding was great thanks; although a lot of things went wrong. Having said that, they didn't bother us at the time because we were so busy and so happy we didn't care. If anything goes wrong on your day; you won't care about it. If it's something that needs to be fixed, then get the best man or bridesmaids on the case; don't deal with it yourself, because you need to concentrate on enjoying yourself. The day goes by so fast!
It was a blast though, and we caught the last of the heatwave in July, before it all turned rainy! I hope you have the same luck with the weather... if it's anything like today then you'll have great outdoor photos!
