My best friends wedding!

My best friends wedding!

30th April 2017………Megan and stuart’s wedding day! So much planning and preparation for this day. It was going to be perfect.

So my alarm went off at 630 as I needed to be at the hilton metropole in Brighton at 730 to start the day off! We arrived at the hotel and I went straight to Megan’s room, I was so excited to be maid of honour and I couldn’t wait to see her! Jodie the other bridesmaid and Sharon the mother of the bride arrived shortly after me. We were all so excited, music playing, bubbles flowing!!!

The hair and make up girls arrived just after 8am, Jade the hairdresser and annabel the make up artist. They were amazing!! So chilled out! There was a plan to get us all ready, one in the hair chair and one in the make up chair.

Carla the photographer arrived about the same time, she was brilliant. She didn’t get in the way at all, but she took the most amazing photos.

The flowers arrived about 1030 they were gorgeous! So stunning! Lillac and white flowers…..beautiful!

Megan gave me and jodie a necklace each with a little message in the box, it was beautiful!

Jodie and I got into our dresses so we were ready to help megan later in the morning. Once we got dressed, the photographer took us out to the most amazing staircase to have some photos done.


Then we went back to the room to get megan ready. We got her into her stunning dress, shoes on, jewellery on then had a glass of bubbles! She was ready!

Megan’s dad then came up to the room to get megan. The photographer was ready to capture his moment, it was beautiful and so moving.  He cried at how beautiful megan looked. I had to go in the other room so I didn’t ruin my makeup from the happy tears.

The registrars came to the room to speak to megan. Then we were ready to go. We headed down the stairs, more photos then we headed to the Clarence suite for the ceremony. The flower girls went down the aisle first then the mums with a usher each, then it was mine and jodies turn. We walked down the aisle and headed to our seat. Then the song changed, megan and her dad started to walk down the aisle. Absolutely stunning!


The ceremony was beautiful, so perfect! Time for a drink!!! We went into another room so the hotel staff could change the room around ready for the wedding breakfast. While we were waiting the wedding party had more photos done.

When we went into the wedding breakfast, I was gobsmacked! It looked stunning! We all took our seats ready to greet the new Mr and Mrs Robertson! They came in to the biggest cheer. We sat down for a meal which was really tasty. Cheese and onion tart, roast chicken and chocolate terrine all washed down with lovely wine.


Then it was time for the speeches!

Perry the father of the bride was up first, his speech was lovely so moving. I was crying again! The Stuart the groom, again it was lovely and guess what I cried again! Kyle next, the best man. Now this was funny, I couldn’t stop laughing! Then……….it was my turn! I was so nervous, but it went fine. I nearly started crying again as I looked at megan who was nearly crying too. It was hard to write but I got there in the end.

The people who were involved in the wedding got given gifts. I got a bottle of prosecco, a engraved glass and a personalised candle.


We went into the other room again while they sorted out the room for the reception. When we went back in the disco was ready, the photobooth was ready which meant PARTY!!!!!!

Megan and Stuart cut the cake which was incredible! Lemon drizzle Base, chocolate fudge middle tier and top tier was raspberry and vanilla buttercream. So tasty!


Now it was time for the first dance and father daughter dance. Their first dance was to a song by hunter hayes and the father daughter dance was to daddy’s little girl by the Shires. It was so nice to watch.

Then the party really got going, lots of dancing, drinking and plenty of photos in the photobooth!!


Eventually it was time for bed. The next morning we met up for breakfast and had plenty of giggles about the day! Megan and Stuart had Mr and Mrs jumpers on…….too cute!!!!


The wedding was perfect! I felt very honoured to be involved and it was very special to me. I will never forget it!


My best friend’s surprise hen weekend to Disneyland paris!

My best friend’s surprise hen weekend to Disneyland paris!

5am 31st march 2017, we pick my best friend Megan up from her house. She had no idea where we were going, her fiancé Stuart packed her bag from a list that I gave him. Michael was driving us to Gatwick but he drove down to Brighton first to confuse Megan. Then as we got near to Gatwick, I said to her that I needed to stop as a ‘services’ for the loo. Megan was blindfolded and she had headphones on so had no idea what was going on. Then we got her out the car, we were all standing in front of her with Minnie ears on and our Paris tops on. She broke down into tears, she was so happy!

We headed into the terminal and went straight to bag drop to sort out my wheelchair. Then we went through security and straight to wetherspoons for breakfast and prosecco!


We arrived in paris at 10am, headed straight to our hotel. We were staying at Disney kyriad hotel. It was brilliant! There was a free shuttle bus to and from the park from the hotel reception. The buses were every 10-15mins. It only took about 8 mins from the hotel to the parks. We went into Disney village for some much needed lunch and a mooch around. After we had filed our tummies we went back to the hotel to chill then get ready for a night out in Disney village. We got ready then played some games at the hotel before going out, including stick the ring on Minnie! Such a good game!! We took lots of photos then headed out.


We went to the rainforest café for dinner, it was so tasty! We had a cocktail with dinner too. Then we went to a sports bar for another cocktail. A few of us had glowing cocktails which had a blue glowing plastic ice cube in, so cool! We didn’t stay out too late as we knew we had a full day in Disney on the Saturday. So we went back to the hotel to get some rest.

1st April: DISNEY DAY!
We got up abut 8am to go to the park for a full day! We had some breakfast at the hotel then went to the park! Megan was so excited, it was so lovely to see her very excited!


I had my blue badge with me as I could get a pass to get on the rides without stairs. The disabled queues for the rides were by the exit and I could take 4 people on with me. It took a while to get the pass as the queue was long but then we used the disabled entrances for each ride. We then went a met Minnie mouse! Megans favourite! It was very special.


We spent the day going on the rides and eating! There was a parade at 530 which was brilliant! It was a parade for their 25th anniversary. Then there was a illuminations and firework show at 10pm, it was incredible! Well worth staying at the park for. After this we went back to the hotel to rest for the next day the walt Disney studios park until we had to head for the airport.

2nd April: Walt Disney studios park

We used the disabled pass again as it was valid for the 2 days we were there. This park was smaller and more for adults as there’s lots of rollercoasters. We went to the Disney shops after being in the park to get some goodies before going back to the hotel. We got picked up at 530pm to go to the airport.

The whole trip was perfect! Megan had no idea what was going on but she loved it! The only thing that puts me off going back is the amount of people smoking around the parks!!!!!! Even though there are designated smoking areas, no one cared! Unfortunatly it caused me to have a very nasty asthma attack and be kept in hospital for 2 days when I got home. Its such a shame as it was a brilliant weekend!
