Tomorrow will make me a Wife

As I sit alone in the house I grew up in, I have a chance to reflect.  It is quiet and peaceful and I am surrounded by Wedding things. Confetti, Pom Poms, signs, gifts and bunting; all the things I have been tirelessly working on for our special day.  I have been so busy, I hadn't really thought that I am actually getting married tomorrow.  it is less than 24 hours away.  Tomorrow will  make me a wife.

When you are only knee high and you hang your grandmas scarves from your little head pretending to be a bride, or when your at primary school and you 'marry' your boyfriend at break time, it feels like an eternity until you will be a grown up and yet in what feels like a flash, here I am getting ready for my wedding day.

So much time has passed since those days, so many incredible memories, fun times with friends and family, holidays, parties, old friends, new friends, school, exams, jobs and also sad times, heart ache, sobbing into your pillow listening to dodgy pop songs.  All of those things, the good the bad and the damn right embarrassing have shaped me into the women I am.


Our wedding may not seem a huge deal to some, We already pay a mortgage, we already have a child.  But to us it is the biggest deal.  We knew from weeks of being together we would get married.  We have talked about this day for a long time.  It is the final piece of the puzzle, to be man and wife.

Our journey together has seen us become parents, we have been so strong and so together through it all, our story isn't perfect, it is messy, there are good bits and bad bits, ups and downs, but it is my favourite story to tell.  I believe with every ounce of me in what we are. We are a team, and tomorrow our team will be official, and it makes my heart flutter just to think about it.

Everyone is asking me if I am nervous and it is a tricky one to answer.  Am I nervous about the wedding? Yes.  Am I nervous about getting married? Nothing has been easier in my life.  I am so ready.  We are so ready for this next chapter of us.

I am a better women, mother and partner because I have Mr P by my side.  When I am anxious I instantly relax when he is with me, my body physically unwinds.  When I am sad he will hold me and doesn't care if I get mascara on his shirt.  We laugh together, belly aching laughs, tickle fights and late night talks like we are still 17.   I love our quirks and the things that make us, us.  He drives me crazy, I wish he wouldn't get toothpaste everywhere, but I wouldn't change this life we have built together, not for all the tea and china as my nanny would say.

One of the most beautiful things to come out of our Wedding day, is the all the time we have spent with friends and family, it has really shown us just how lucky we are to have such incredible people around us, that believe in us as much as we do.  People have sent such beautiful cards and gifts, people have said the most lovely things to us, people I haven't seen for years have sent me messages with such kind words.   We are truly blessed.  We have made some amazing memories along the way, my bridesmaids, wow what a group of girls.  They have spoilt me and treated me like a queen, the effort they have gone too has left me speechless. And my beautiful Mum.  How lucky am I to have a mum like her.


I had to stop typing a moment ago, the postman came to the door with a last minute wedding parcel.  How weird to sign my name as Amie Madgett for the last time.  I will miss being Madgett, it is who I have been for 23 years, it is who people know me as.  People asking how to spell my surname, hearing people say that Amie Madgett.  It is so strange. And it is quite emotional.  My Miss days may be going and I am so excited to take on my new surname and be the same as my beloved boys, but it is and end of an era. I will know fill in the 'maiden name' box on forms.

I honestly cannot beleive tomorrow I will become Mrs P.  Mrs P. Mrs actual P.  I am so looking forward to married life, to our family to grow, for the adventures we will go on and the trials we will face.  Knowing I have him by my side throughout everything, means I know, what ever married life throws at us, we will always have each other.

Here is to the rest of our lives. Mr & Mrs P.

Love and hugs to everyone, thank you all so much for your kindness. and to Mr P. I will see you at the end of the isle.  I love you to the moon, round the stars, and back again.
