So am back on again, after a long break, of much moving about the country (and Ireland) and much preparation for this amazing wedding that took place over the weekend. The bride and groom, some of our best friends, finally tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony that just needed to be documented on here! So here's a brief overview of it all:

So as you can see from the above photos, this wedding was nothing short of sheer glamour. Based around the theme of peacock colours, and Gemma and Tim's own artistic vision, they came up with a stunning interpretation with help from numerous friends and work colleagues to bring it all together. I first met this couple through my sister. At the time, with me having only just started university and them all being a bit older, didn't quite get them, (at the time they were all playing a pub quiz where the winners won the contents of each others pockets?!!!) But after many years and many unique experiences with them I have come to realise they, and their gorgeous daughter, are people that I love spending time with the most.
Tim, a fellow blogger at Animated Review, is quiet (has to be with Gemma around) but ridiculously funny and straight talking and would do absolutely anything for anyone if ever asked. Gemma, who has introduced me to just how loud Northerners can be, is just a natural mother. She might not think in the conventional way but will look out for you and spend her precious time looking after everyone in her special ways and just be there for you whatever is needed. She has helped me in many valuable ways, particularly the last couple of years, and I can't thank her enough for her time and her love. Both of them are complete opposites in personality (and voice level!) but just work and shows you how LOVE can be! Congratulations MR and MRS BELL!
