One Moment in Time with The Money Saving Mummy

6 September 2017

Welcome to one moment in time, a guest posts series, where bloggers share the stories behind special or significant photographs. This week's featured blogger is the lovely Kerryanne who bloggers at The Money Saving Mummy. Thank you so much for joining me!

This snap takes me back to the 14th May 2012. Aside from having my children it was the best day of my life. I'm not usually one for being super vain but looking at this picture reminds me just how special and loved I felt on that magical day. I've never experienced such a tangible sense of love and happiness directed at you by all those you hold close. I honestly felt that I was walking on air all day. It was a day that dreams are made of.

This type of fairytale wedding doesn't come cheap, but being the bargain hunter I am I was determined to have the wedding of our dreams at a fraction of the cost. We found the venue that is the spectacular exclusive use Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire . It would have taken us years to save to be married in a venue like this. However getting married at short notice and on a weekday can help you secure the perfect wedding venue at a huge discount. I had 9 weeks to pull it off and a limited budget but on the day you would never know it. Would you know that the photographer was a Groupon deal? That my dress was custom made in China for little over £100? That the personalised wedding favours were purchased from Ebay?

Being savy enabled me to have the most wonderful day, one that I will never forget.

So when I'm being slummy mummy, tired with bags under my eyes, scraped back mum bun hair, clothes on that lasted clean for all of five minutes before being accessorised with grubby toddler handprints, it's nice to look back on this photo and think 'wow this was me!' and remember just how wonderful and loved I felt. It was from this love between me and the Hubs that my two darling girls were created and for that I am extremely grateful and blessed.
