Just the two of us

These last two weeks we have been surrounded by family.  Some have been here in person and others have been spoken to on the phone or have sent emails, cards and incredibly thoughtful presents.  But amongst all this love and kindness we've also wanted to be by ourselves sometimes - just the two of us.  I suspect that all people getting married feel like this occasionally.

A couple of days ago G and I set our alarms for just before dawn and got up to go for a walk.  That time of day is the only time it is cool enough to hike at the moment.

It was a stunning walk - one of the best we've done down here.  And it was just what we needed to remind ourselves why we want to get married to each other, in this magical place.


  1. It's tomorrow isn't it? I will be thinking of you - have a wonderful day (though, like you, I sometimes relish the low key, quiet bits the most).

    All the very best! x

  2. Hope it all goes wonderfully well, and that you both have time to enjoy every moment.

  3. Bliss. Will be thinking of you tomorrow! K x

  4. All the very best wishes for tomorrow (and forever) x

  5. A walk before dawn with the one you love sounds wonderful. Best of luck for the big day! x

  6. OH! Your first photo is BEAUTIFUL.

    Sending you both my love for a wonderful day tomorrow,
