Long ago wedding day

Over at Cafe bebe is another flashback friday.
This week I have been busy with a huge amount of planning
for my daughters wedding in september. It made me think about my own wedding day, some 32 yrs ago. I met my huband through letters, as he was my penpal. We wrote for a year and met in December 1978 and married by July 79. We are still together and happy but I sometimes wish I was that young bride again !


  1. Jill, you looked gorgeous, and how smart your groom looks in his uniform. Happy days,
    joy xx

  2. Awwww I remember it like it was yesterday xxx

  3. Thanks joy wish I was still that young and slim lol
    And em you were the best little bridesmaid and Lucy too xx

  4. Bless you...what a wonderful story! My hubby and I met through the phone (long story) in November of 2004, met in person for the first time in February of 2005, were engaged in March of 2005 and married one year later to the day! Some things are meant to be! ;)
    Thanks so much for linking up to Flashback Friday! Congratulations on 32 years of wedded bliss!

  5. Aw, how lovely! Such a great story of you being pen pals. My husband and I are the modern day version I guess, we met online exchanging emails before meeting up x

  6. Well both of you did the modern version of penpal which I think is great. My mum was not as keen when I told her lol she said you couldn't trust a sailor lol
