Brummie Love.

Posted on: Thursday, 12 April 2012

We were lucky enough to be invited to the lovely Susie and Maurice's wedding over the Easter weekend.

Susie and I were NQTs at a school in Leeds and worked together for three years, which passed in a whirlwind of Ofsted, car-sharing and house parties. Then I left for another school and she departed for far more exotic purposes: travelling the world. She took on a job in a Birmingham pub to raise some much-needed cash, met Maurice behind the bar, fell head over heels....and went travelling anyway. Those nine months she was away, said Maurice, made them.

Maurice is a Brummie with a penchant for singing UB40 on karaoke. He also said that he was happier marrying Susie than when Birmingham City won the cup. Aw. Susie is a GOOD EGG - like, a lovely, hippyish, here's-my-last-fiver, I-really-want-to-come-on-your-hen-do-but-I'm-skint-so-I'll-get-the-Megabus kinda girl. It was a totally ace, unpretentious, WE LOVE EACH OTHER kind of day. Susie and Maurice loving each other, that is - not Susie and I. That's be weird. Huzzah for them.

She's also an art teacher whose talent is sickening. Sickening, I tell thee. Are these not the most adorable place settings you've ever seen?

And she made her own bouquet and table flowers out of origami paper. Grand, eh?

We've been on holiday to Herefordshire for a few days. Photos and whatnot to follow.
