Our Engagement in New York City

So I haven’t spoken much about about my Wedding on here yet and I think it’s only natural that I share the story with you, as it’s part of my life and the person that I am. Also I’m mad about all things Wedding related (even though I’m now married myself) – I can’t get enough of them (although not in the sense that I plan to have any more).

So I should probably take you back to the big engagement in New York City!

A bit of history: me and hubby met at uni and were friends-of-friends for years. We eventually realised we were completely meant for each other and started seeing each other after our final year.

Having never been to a professional cricket match before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I went with an open-mind and my best dress on.

We were being hosted by a lovely group of gents, who welcomed us with open arms and an open bar. There was a fab buffet of grilled chicken, vegetable lasagne, roast potatoes and other goodies. Also cheese-boards and the most divine raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. We certainly didn’t go hungry.

A day in Castlefield, Manchester

With the folks visiting from London, we thought we’d spend a day locally in Castlefield, Manchester. And although threatening to rain, the sun came out at the right moments and we managed to enjoy an afternoon lunching and strolling.

We headed for lunch first, al fresco at The Wharf, Castlefield, Manchester. And what a lunch it was! As I was too distracted with eating, drinking and chatting in the sun, I’m afraid I didn’t get many foodie shots except this one…
