*Chapter 3 - I now pronounce you man and wife*

Two years had passed since the boy proposed to the girl, they had brought their own house and had been living together for a year and a half..... and today was THE day.
It was 7.30 am on a Saturday morning and the girl {now 22} was sat sipping coffee nervously in the hairdressers , happy thoughts whizzing around her head along with nervous energy, sat beside the girl was her little sister {only 5 years younger} - her bridesmaid ♥ Tears welled up in the girls eyes, it was an emotional day and her sister looked beautiful smiling back at her. Soon it was time to leave the hairdressers and the girl was excited at what the day was about to bring..... in four hours she would be a married women!

.....the girl is outside the Church, it's time . She holds her dad's hand and he whispers 'I'm proud of you Rach'. A rush of emotion fills the girl, 'I mustn't cry - not yet!' They walk down the isle towards the boy, he turns to look at the girl and smiles.


The girl smiles back, forgetting the sea of faces staring at her. Butterflies fill her belly, it's a good feeling of excitement and wonder 'will I be able to speak when asked?' The girl stares at the boy, everything is quiet, all she can hear is her heart beating and then... It's announced. They are husband and wife. The girl feels like giggling, 'that sounds weird - but good weird!'

They leave the church, smiling to their friends and families, pictures are taken, the reception begins and they dance as man and wife in each others arms.... the day draws to an end and they leave ready to start the next chapter of their lives, where will the journey take them?
