We managed to get some of the wedding pics stuck on the blog very quickly before we moved out of the flat and cancelled the internet. Here's the words that should have come along with it!

Ian and I had an amazing day and enjoyed every single second of it. We could not have asked for anything to be different or changed. The whole day was prefect from start to finish.

I guess firstly we need to say some BIG thank- you's.
- Thanks to everyone who came- it would not have been the party that it was without you all!!
- Thanks to the parents (Lynn, Sue, Andrew and Pete) and Julie and Alistair for all their support over the past few months. Big thanks to Julie and Alistair for being our witnesses too. Huge thanks to my mum, Lynn (aka Mum-2) and David for getting the Town Hall looking jaw droppingly amazing!
- Thanks Dad (Dad- 2!), for giving me away and your incredible speech and well done for making a good half the room cry! Not even for your dancing!
- Thanks to Katie and Darren for being the best bridesmaid and best man that a bride and groom could ever want. Darren- your speech was fab!
- A MASSIVE thanks to Jed for his services as "official" wedding photographer. We can't wait to see the pics.
- Thanks to Graham for being a great DJ and putting up with our odd music requests. I still think that "Young Hearts Run Free" and "Kung Fu Fighting" should be played at ALL parties. They are disco classics! Also thanks for the unforgettable end to the night. I will never forget looking round to see everyone giving it some on the dance floor to "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". It was a surreal but great moment!
- Thanks to Allyson and Matt for all their amazing work on the invitations and place cards. They were super!
-Thanks to my grandparents, Fred and Audrey, for finding the best cheeseboard ever!
- A HUGE thanks to Steven, Joss, Terese and Kirsty who made all the amazing food and let Ian have a free run in choosing and ordering all the food.
- A big thanks to the staff at both Durham Registry office and the Town Hall that made the whole day run without a hitch.

Ian and I had the most amazing day and we are both still smiling now. It was great having so many of our loved ones together for our special day. Thanks to everyone who has sent photos and videos (although some of the dancing ones are quite special!). Its a day that we will just never forget. The ceremony went so well and we were both very emotional, thanks to Dave and Frances for their readings (and to Dave especially for holding it together!).
Our pedicab ride through Durham was amazing and something that I don't think I will ever forget. The meal and the evening reception were brilliant too. Its just a shame that we couldn't have kept dancing for a while longer (not really applicable for the hard core group of us that ended up in Love Shack!).

So really just thanks to everyone who came- it was an amazing day for Ian and I because you were all there to spend it with us! We will never forget it. Thanks for all the messages in the guest book (Mrs Wyemes gets the prize for the best one!), but Alistair, yours made me cry and for all the cards and gifts.

I imagine that the next message will be from Buenos Aires in less than 2 weeks time as we set up for a cracking honeymoon. We will miss everyone- so please do keep in touch!

Lots of love from the new Mr and Mrs Nixon!! xx

PS, we'll try and get some of the comedy dancing video on here when we get a chance!
