Simone’s and Miran’s wedding

The excitement was palatable. My friends were so excited . We had late night dinners ,waltz practice . They were doing a special ball room dance sequence. It was fun and excitement all the way . My bridal gown fittings were going on . Appointments galore . Bridal shower , cocktails and dinner , an informal friends night , the wedding and then the reception. Before that was Christmas.  The month just flew . Miran had a special destination for the honeymoon, which I was clueless about . It was going to be a surprise. The dinners began . My friends from out of town , started coming in . Miran and I hardly got a chance to speak . We were both neck deep in work . Planning and arranging the wedding. My gown was breathtakingly beautiful. I just stood in awe looking at it . It was a beautiful intricate lace , with an old Parisian border and an antique hemming pattern . It was a beautiful mix of classic and modern . The dance rehearsal was an everyday affair .  Finally the wedding festivities began . Bridal shower was arranged so beautifully by my friends. We had a wonderful, fun filled evening laced with nostalgia. Cocktails and dinner saw a lot of dancing. I wore a red silk full length straight cut gown with a v neck and full length sleeves .Again a simple but classic design . Finally the day of the wedding dawned . Bright and clear . The entrance was decorated in hues of cream and pink , my favourite combination .  As I was entering the hall , Miran pulled me in the corner and said “ I want to look at my bride first “ . He then made me turn and slipped the most beautiful necklace around my throat . Ruby , diamonds and gold . He said to match with your ring . The ear - rings were beautiful tear  drops .  We entered separately. The ceremony passed in a blur and suddenly I heard “ Now you may kiss the bride “. Miran looked very happy . I think I might have looked nervous. He came close, touched my lips and said “ Relax Sweetheart, we are married, not being thrown into a dungeon . That made me laugh . Some of my colour restored . We hardly got time fo rest . Again we had to be dressed for the reception. I took a power nap  and was being taken to the parlour . I wore a wine coloured silk gown with a beautiful emerald set . One more wedding gift from Miran . I told him “ At this rate , you are going to spoil me in no time “ . He said a woman like you has to be loved all the time . And I got a deep kiss . Which I had to cut short before my make - up was completely ruined . It had been very painstakingly applied . We got ready and headed for the reception. The evening was relaxed . We danced on lovely numbers . By midnight, we were thoroughly exhausted. I reached the suite , changed and fell into his arms into a deep sleep . I was woken up by a kiss . “ Good morning Sleepy Head “ . Can you get ready . We have to leave in a hour . To catch a flight . I jumped from the bed . I said “ but I haven’t packed “ . He gave me a mischievous smile and pointed to the suitcases packed and standing by the door . I said “ but where are we going “ . He winked at me . Surprise !  To be continued 😉

Joy of the Day

What yoga means to me? Yoga is the energy which runs through me at each Dawn. The joy of letting go, brought home by yoga. Cherish what you ...
