Wedding pictures and Video

Hey guys, finally I get to share my wedding pictures with you and a short film.  It's been so hard going through all the pictures to pick my favourites, as I don't have a one, I love them all!! This was such a special day for me, looking back after two months of being married now it feels weird re living the day, it feels like it was a year ago.

This day was so special to me for many reasons, of course every girl dreams of that big day.  I don't really get personal on my blog, but sharing these pictures with you I guess there is a first for everything.  My dad died when I was 5 years old and my world came crashing down when my mum died when I was 10 years old.  I was also the only mixed race person in my generation on both my parents side (I do have full Ugandan siblings), so growing up was very tough dealing with the loss of my parents and feeling like the odd one out.  I always thought I wouldn't be able to cope without my parents being there to see me graduate, get married etc.  But getting married has reminded me how truly blessed I'am to have a family that adores me.  They have given me all the love and support in the world and if it wasn't for them I wouldn't have gotten this far.  I was lucky to live with my mums younger sister, whom was already my second mum anyway and was blessed with even more brothers and sisters.

 I hope you enjoy the pictures and video.
