My Fairy Tale Ending...♥

I can finally share with you some photos from my special day, it really was the most perfect day of my life and I wish I could relive every moment.
It was so hard to pick my favorite photo's but these are some of the highlights - I'd love to upload them all and show you but I think some part of your big day has to be personal.

The day went by in such a blur its a good job Chloe from Chloecast was on hand with her camera,
We had our ceremony at 1.00pm under the gazebo overlooking the ocean while the sun shined, it was a beautiful view, but nothing was more beautiful than my handsome groom.
It front of our close family and friends we made our vow that we would love each other forever,
I could not stop smiling throughout the whole day.
After the ceremony we cut our wedding cake and raised our glasses as the new "Mr & Mrs Chadderton"
We were lead to our reception room after the toast, where the best man and the groom said there speeches, with a few tears or two.
The rest of our evening was spent spending  precious time together and enjoying every little moment before we performed our first dance to "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls.
It really couldn't of  been any more perfect.
It really was my fairy tale ending.

Less than 1 Week To Go - My Journey Of A Bride To Be #7

Well today is is officially the day I step on the plane to Cyprus to get married,
I'll be almost there when this post goes up.
I get married next week so I'll we'll be in Cyprus just under a week before we get married.
 I will be a little quiet on the blog for the next two weeks, but don't worry, I'll be back to posting when I am home.

Most of our family and friends are flying out with us today and a few of my friends including my Maid Of Honour are flying out on the Friday so it gives us all a chance to settle in and get a good tan before the big day arrives and its another excuse to have another hen/stag party out there, who says you can't have two.

This is my final installment in My Journey Of A Bride To Be, 
I hope you have enjoyed reading my posts and if you have been a reader of my wedding related posts,
Thank you for reading and leaving such lovely comments.
I can't wait to share the photos with you.
I will be so sad when its all over because I have loved planning every little detail.

I wish that everyone of my friends could of made it to Cyprus with me,
I have had my best friends - including Rachel and Gina's - support every step of the way and I could not of asked for more amazing friends to help me plan my wedding and put up with my moaning.

I have a few more bits and pieces we have got off family and friends to share with you in this post too.

First up is this beautiful photo album that my mother in law to be bought us, its absolutely stunning with 3D butterflies fluttering all up on side - I love that no one will have one identical to it - I can't wait to fill it.

She also bought us this Mr & Mrs Chadderton wooden plaque - I plan on having this on our table at the reception where we are sitting as a centerpiece - she personalized this with out butterfly theme, and it has the date of our wedding on it- isn't she amazing.

Because my mum sadly passed away almost 4 years ago, I bought this hanging locket for my flower bouquet off a seller on Facebook called Beatrice Belle, she is so lovely and made this so perfectly for me and she was so helpful - I'd recommend her 100%

 In one photo there is a picture of my mum and the other photo is my fiances Darren's grandma holding Darren as a baby,
Its a little something to make us feel closer to those we wish could be there, it breaks my heart to not have my mum there when I need her most,

As you know I also received this beautiful photo album book to pop photo's from the Hen Party in from one of my best friends Rachel - you can see more about that post here.

At the weekend, I ironed these diamante transfers onto vest tops for myself and my Maid Of Honour to wear on the morning of our wedding just so we can feel that bit more special while getting ready.

The vest tops were from H&M and I'm sure they were only a few pounds in the sale and the transfers were about £2.99 on eBay - I'd only give these a go though if you have plenty of time on your hand and your good with an iron.

I also had my nails done this weekend to at my local salon, I'm not one for spending a fortune on beauty before I go away but I had my nails and toenails painted with shellac - 14 days chip proof nail varnish, after all you do only get married once, plus my salon had a special £10.00 offer on.

So its official all this wedding planning is coming to an end - but for the perfect reason.
I have enjoyed it so much and if your getting married yourself soon, cherish every day of your planning.

  I will see you in two weeks time where I will officially be Mrs Chadderton.

If you have me on instagram I may even pop some photo's up there - xxmrschaddertontobexx

Lots of Love

"Get This Party Started" - My Hen Night - My Journey Of A Bride To Be ♥ #6

Last weekend was the night I had been planning for a few months and it really was the best night out I have had in a long time.
Me and my 8 hens arrived in Leeds on the Saturday morning after a crazy 10 minutes when we took a wrong turn and almost ended up on the motorway home - what we like.

Once we were all together we checked in and went straight to our rooms to pop on our sashes so we could start our night straight away.
We decided to go to Wetherspoons for some lunch and pre drinks but decided the best plan was staying at the hotel and eating there because it was to busy at Wetherspoons,

The only thing I regret was that we didn't set off an earlier, we could of done with an extra hour or two to have a bit longer to natter and enjoy our food and drinks - then again I may have not made it out if I'd of had longer to drink.

After our lunch/tea which was amazing by the way, The Premier Inn cook some pretty amazing handmade pizza's.

After our food, we had about 2 hours to hurry up and get ready so we could leave for the show we had booked at the Oceana in Leeds Central.
We had a few drinks beforehand, I was a classy lady with my Lambrini and I gave all my hens there goodie bags which included personalized shot glasses, willy straws, glow stick bracelets and a pink balloon each.
I got the pink bags off eBay in a pack of 10 and made the labels myself to save a bit of money.
I thought they looked fab.

All my hens looked absolutely gorgeous, I could not have asked for a more beautiful bunch of ladies.

I dress was from Missguided and was only £26.99 and was so lovely to wear, although I'm sure I spent half the night pulling it up - the only downside with strapless dresses.
The sexy lady next to me on the bottom photo is my Maid Of Honour.

The show that we went to was the Adonis Cabaret Night in Leeds - you can read more about it here and there a different shows in different cities if you ever want to go.
Its the perfect girls night out to go to for your hen night with some good looking men thrown in,
Its an absolute laugh and is not in any way seedy.
All my hens loved it.
The show was about 2 hours long and you got a free drink/buffet with your photos taken all night for free,

At one point in the show all the brides to be's had to get up on stage and I was pretty adamant I would not go up because I am a chicken, but after a few drinks there was no stopping me - thank god for vodka.
We all had to introduce ourselves and where we were from blind date style and I thought that was all..... until we were told we had to dance on stage and take it in turns singing Valerie by Amy Winehouse on karaoke - it wasn't that bad, at least I can say I gave it a whirl.

 After the show had finished, we got a few cheeky photo's with the "acts"

The club actually opened to the public at about 10pm and it was a nightclub with numerous different rooms, We danced away in about three different rooms throughout the night,
If was only because our feet were hurting that we went home at 3.15 am, everyone got one and had a brilliant night.

Me, Rachel Crawford, Gina and Racheal  ( my blogger girlies ) all went back to our room and talked random rubbish while we ate cold pizza, whispas and ready salted crisps and water and the rest because Rachel Crawford had a feast in her bag, although she kept the cookies a secret that night.
 I don't think we got to bed till at about 5am and even then we got 4 hours sleep before we completed the morning with a full english breakfast at Wetherspoons.

I had an absolutely brilliant Hen Party, I wish I could do it all over again but sadly I only plan to get married the once, these other girls need to get married now so I can go to their's
Rachel Crawford got me the most amazing present - she almost made me cry - good job I'm getting better at composing myself.

She got me this personalized Hen Party photo book so I can print out all the photos from my night and keep them forever, such a thoughtful idea, and she's such an amazing friend.
Ohhh and I can't miss out my Maid Of Honour either who got me my veil, L plates and name badges for the girls.

I hope you enjoyed reading out my night, I fly out next week to Cyprus.
There will be one post coming up before I disappear for two weeks, eeek.

Bridal Make Up Inspiration and Top 10 Bridal Make Up Tips ♥

So when I fly out to Cyprus as well as getting my hair done, I'm have also chose to get my make up done by a make up artist,
 I'd do it myself normally but that would involve buying high end products for the one day and its costing me a little less that what I'd spend on MAC products - plus for one day I'd rather have someone else doing my hair and make up.

I have been browsing gorgeous bridal make up for months now and I have come across some beautiful photo's and have collected a few of my favorites and pinned them to my bridal board to eventually share in this post.

I think your eyes are an important when it comes to make up - I especially love defining mine and making my hazel colour stand out more - But I think its important to keep the rest of your make up minimal -

The looks I have chosen are similar to how I want my bridal make up, the lip colour in the bottom photo is gorgeous and I want a nice light coral shade just like that.

I love how natural the first one is, minimal make up just makes you look like a natural beauty.

My eyes aren't blue but I do love how they have used the eyeshadow a similar to the eye colour, it really makes her eyes stand out, I'd probably use this technique with green and brown shades to match my eyes.

All photo's have been pinned from pinterest and I am not in anyway taking credit for them.

I also featured "Top 10 Tips For The Bride On The Morning Of Her Wedding" here,
I thought it would be nice to also add these handy tip too from the same person for
 "Bridal Makeup"

Which are your favorite looks?

Hello September ♥ And A Few Wedding Day Tips For Bride To Be's ♥

Wow, where has last month gone?
August has finally come and gone and now we are in September and I get married this month - apologies to the people who keep getting reminded a million times but I am excited so can you really blame me?

Its been quite a rubbish year to be honest with so many set backs and things going wrong, I can say 2013 has actually been a really unlucky and hard year for me.
But I'm hoping this one month everything will go perfectly and I will look back on 2013 as being the best year of my life because its the year I marry my best friend.

Anyway I came across this a few months ago on Pinterest that someone has uploaded and I thought it was really handy for those bride to be's to maybe take a screenshot or save this page for future reference.

These are tips to help you when you are getting married on the morning of your wedding - which will be me in 24 days - eeek.

Are there many bride to be's on here?
When do you get married?
