Loved Up

This Sunday is my first wedding anniversary! Yes, we've lasted a year -- (actually, six) living together. Two creative people from completely different cultures (Egyptian vs Canadian) in one small flat could be a recipe for disaster, but it works for us. And so, like the sap that I am, and because secretly I love stalking other people's wedding photos, I'm going to torment you with a few of mine!

With my maid of honour and best friend from high school and my wonderful parents, right outside my flat on the way to our ceremony venue, the art gallery Dali Universe.


This was the hilarious car I hired to take us to the ceremony -- imported from India! Right now I'm thinking: Is my dress getting dirty? Yes. It was.


Exchanging rings during the ceremony.


One the boat for our reception, going down the Thames in front of County Hall. We had a wonderful jazz duo.




I love this photo. This is London Bridge -- all lit up pink as we passed underneath.




Dancing on top of the boat as the night comes to an end.



Our honeymoon location! Lopud, a small island off the coast of Croatia.


Enough schmoopiness for you? Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

  53. Those pictures are beautiful! And Happy Anniversary. My story is somewhat like yours. My hubby and I are about to celebrate our first year anniversary (Sept 12), but we've been together since 2001. And my best friends from high school were my bridesmaids. (Oh, the memories) I hope you have a wonderful day! And many, many more years to come.

  75. I loved these pictures! You both look so happy, and so pretty (your dress is gorgeous!). I have never been a princess-wedding-planner-since-the-age-of-six kind of girl, but I do like the concept of weddings since they are great opportunities for couples to show each other and the world how much they love each other. Looks like the two of you did just that.

    Happy anniversary!
