We have our venues booked! I am so so so excited now and now that our family & friends know, I'm excited to share it with you lot too. We will be getting married in a little place called The Athenaeum in Liverpool in their library. Then, afterwards, we will be hopping on a double decker routemaster and going up to the Georgian Quarter in Liverpool to our reception venue, Hope Street Hotel.
The wedding breakfast will be on the fifth floor of the Hope Street Hotel, which has amaaaazing views over the city and a balcony to boot. I love the contrast between the old and the new of our venues and I know that the food at Hope Street will be amazing as my sister had her graduation meal there. We also visited last weekend for a wedding fair they held and got to try some of the amazing canapes - so delicious.
We decided we didn't want to get married in a church straight away - neither of us attend church except for christenings and weddings and we would rather get married in a space that we feel comfortable in but it as equally as stunning as churches are. A library seems so appropriate for a librarian and PhD student (will be Dr on the wedding day *fingers crossed*) and you can't get much more amazing than the Athenaeum library.
Our wedding will be late September 2013, we have it all booked and now the crazy bit starts - trying to get it all organised without driving ourselves mad with wedding stuff. I think once September comes, I will start looking for dresses. I am sure that the next year will fly by though! I am so excited to be Scott's wife though, it all seems so real now.
