Our boys are back! and today they are telling us all about their civil partnership ceremony. James and Mike are planning their big wedding day for 2017, but in advance of this, they wanted to become official.
Over to the handsome James to tell you all about it….
We had our civil partnership on the 5th August 2016 at Salisbury Registry office. Even though we didn’t want it to be a huge event and just to make it all official, due to our “grand wedding” next year, I was nervous as hell.
The stress of making sure everyone was going be on time, that we had everything we needed, rings, ourselves, made me really jumpy!
By some stroke of luck, we managed to get ourselves there bang on time! However one of Mikes witnesses hadn’t arrived….we starting to get panicky….only to find that he was at Salisbury….but just not where he was supposed to be!
So no matter how simple you try and make an occasion, something always ends up going wrong haha.
Including while the registrar was doing her bit! She completely got our names wrong. I was Mike Yilmaz Davies and Mike was James Lewis Young. Our faces must have looked so confused!
We eventually tied the knot. My emotions were all over the place. I didn’t know what to do, whether to burst out laughing or burt out crying with joy and happiness.
To celebrate all went for a lovely meal and a few drinks with all our closest friends.
And now, we are well into the big wedding day planning!
We are so excited to hear about your wedding plans boys!
