We've just received our wedding album [2006-05-05], it's taken a us a few years to select the pictures and sort it all out.

We're back from a fabulous honeymoon in Bangkok and Phuket.

We're expecting our Gift Registry delivery this weekend so we'll finally receive all the lovely presents everyone kindly gave us. Very exciting!

Many thanks to everyone who has been so patient with us in the aftermath of the wedding. It's not been an easy year.

On the night of our wedding, we spent the night in luxury in Cliveden. Strangely enough, it was featured on This Morning the next day! We spent the rest of the week relaxing and went on day trips to Oxford and the New Forest.

We spent two weeks in Thailand for our honeymoon in November. Photos will be uploaded soon.

In September 2002, Caroline was whisked off to New York on Concorde for a luxury weekend break by Damion. He proposed on a warm sunny Sunday afternoon by a lake in Central Park and Caroline said YES.

While we wanted our civil ceremony to be fairly brief, we decided to add some personal touches with our choices of music and a reading. Rather than pick from the usual wedding cliches, we searched our favourite music for tracks that would be fitting for our marriage ceremony while being of some significance to us as well. This idea was extended to the bridal procession following an article in Wedding Day magazine which bemoaned the lack of imagination used in picking the music for that part of the ceremony. The Craig Armstrong track we used now holds much more meaning for us than any typical bridal march would.

We made our rings during a terrific day at the Wedding Ring Workshop in London.

Our fabulous official photographer was Piers Calascione. His website contains our official wedding pictures and shots from our pre-wedding photo shoot. They are online here and are available to purchase now.

We also have a collection of unofficial pictures from guests which are well worth a look.

Rather than having an official video, we gave our camcorder to wedding guest Andrew Wales and asked him to record a guest's view of the day. We'll probably put an edited version online in the near future as we are rather pleased with the results.

For the evening reception, we had a Ceilidh Band called The Gaberlunzies.
