The  engagement party today ‘The Market Place’ was perfect. Exposed brick work, great furnishings our own private bar and lots of space and tables outside for people to mingle. The party was fantastic. All our family in one room meeting a lot of people of the first time and feeling at ease and so happy. We turned the music down and brought up the lights for our big announcement, the save the date cards had been burning a hole in my handbag all night. ‘Welcome’ Adam said, ‘we just wanted to thank you all for coming, and let you know that in 363 days time, you’ll all be together again at our wedding!’ followed by screams from bridesmaids and handshakes from the men at the bar with their whiskey we went home and waited at least an Hour before tearing into the presents.
