Yup, I’m back ladies. And the first order of business as promised, are the wedding photos. And bear in mind that these are all raw unedited photos. You’re seeing them before the rest of the world!
The wedding was a bit of a nightmare to be honest, don’t let the smiling faces fool you. I started and ended the day in tears, and not the good kind. I got started two hours later than planned because other people obviously have no concept of time, with my time anxiety that already set me on edge. Then some of my family members decided to descend into assholery and make what was supposed to be my day, about them. It rained like crazy, so by the time I walked the ten feet from the vehicle to the venue door, I was sporting the start of a fro. My makeup got done way too late and so the artist that I reserved was with another client by the time I got there, I got the apprentice and it kinda shows in the almost too dark colour and the way it pretty much melted off my face in about an hour. And because people where on their worst behaviour and forcing me to do stuff I shouldn’t have had to, making all the time tables go wonky, the photographer didn’t get to take any of the the getting ready pictures with me and my bridesmaids. So there are no pictures of me without other people in the pictures too. Not a one.
In the end, I kind of snuck off by myself, convinced someone to take me home (ok, I may have threatened my nephew with bodily harm), turned my phone off, sat on the patio, chain smoked and cried like a baby, which is where my husband found me after over an hour of searching.
