We're getting married!!

Its official! We have booked our wedding and we're getting married at the end of October in Mauritius!! We've decided to go away to get married just the two of us as it has become very obvious that the children wouldn't be able to come away with us. Dave was restricted to an hour of contact on his own yesterday, the first lone contact he has had since Christmas. The children wanted to spend a bit longer and had to phone their mum to ask for more time - what a sad situation. He is an absolutely incredible Dad and anyone can see how much his kids adore him, what more could a mother ask for her kids - I can't understand it.
Anyway, we decided that if we couldn't have all of our children with us when we married we would rather be on our own and our families understand where we're coming from. This way we can also combine our wedding and honeymoon somewhere gorgeous! The pic is of the hotel we have chosen which was recommended by a travel agent who had just come back from a working trip to the island - how gorgeous does this look?! We have decided to have a church blessing when we come home followed by a wedding reception with all of our friends and family, that way we can have the quiet, intimate wedding we really want and also the fab party after - the best of both worlds.
Dave is getting really into this 'getting married' thing and has started researching photographers on the island and loads more as he wants this to be really special - how lucky am I??
