1st Wedding Anniversary celebrations! xxxxxx

A year ago today i married my lovely husband Ben and as our 1st wedding anniversary falls on a Monday this year we decided to book a very special weekend away at a Marriot hotel and spa which is the same hotel we stayed at after our wedding reception so its very special to us.

We had an amazing time and felt fully rejuvenated on our return i thought i would share some of the photos we took of our weekend away.

Check in was at 3pm and i had booked a surprise champagne wedding breakfast for us at 3.30 so i had about 25 mins to stall Ben but he kept asking if we could go and find the bar! 
I managed to keep him in the room for about 10-15 mins whilst we unpacked a few bits and Ben worked out the tv (men!)
 So as 3.30 finally started to come round i told him we would go and look for the bar. 
We took a few pic's on the way to waste a bit of time.
I went all out Primark and wore
A navy and white polka dot skirt it has pretty ruffles on the back.
A white blouse that has floaty sleeves finished with pretty beads
and a pair of navy heels.

Ben wore:
His black wedding suit trousers
A blue and white striped shirt with white collar and cuff from Mark & Spencers
and his black Next shoes.

We walked into the room where the wedding breakfast was being served and Ben says to the lady 
"excuse me".......... and i jump in with "I have a reservation for afternoon tea" his face was priceless!!

We sat down and two glasses of rose Champagne we poured for us and we were then brought a delicious selection of sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and pastries.
Everything was really yummy and we ate everything!!
 Beautiful painted ceiling and sparkly chandelier. 

 Afternoon tea

Almost to pretty to eat.... almost!!

After our Afternoon tea we walked around the hotel and grounds which were stunning. 
We also went and took some photos of our suite !
 Little living room area

 nice comfy bed

 No fighting for the sink here.

Me in the beautiful court yard
After we looked around the hotel etc we grabbed our swimmers and headed for the the pool and spa.
(I didn't take my camera with me sorry)
We did some lengths in the pool and relaxed in the jacuzzi. My husband enjoyed the sauna but it was too hot for me! Whilst there Ben tread me to a Jessica Nail varnish.

Its called Passionate Kisses and is a beautiful red with a stunning shimmer to it. Ive never tried a Jessica nail varnish so im very happy with this and will be reviewing soon.
Thanks for reading an have a lovely day!
I hopeing to relax this evening with a film, take away and a bottle of something yummy.
