So what did I do the night before my wedding? I’m in Zakynthos, all our family an friends have arrived and it’s the dreaded night before. We decided to stick to tradition and Paul was banished from the villa to spend the evening having a meal with his parents and drinks with the guests, followed by staying overnight at one of the other hotels in the resort. So I was left in the villa with my mum, dad, brother and my bridesmaids!
We had pre arranged a lady to come and paint our nails as a bit of a girly treat and to make sure our nails were fresh and unchipped for the day. I couldn’t really eat anything, but I sensibly avoided the bubbly to make sure there was no sign of a hangover. I was nervous anyway but even more so because I was checking my weather app every 5 seconds. It had been uncharacteristically humid in Zante and the forecast was a huge storm for the wedding.
Amazingly, despite all the stress I did manage to sleep. We watched Mamma Mia to get us in the mood for a party and then most of the girls went back to there respective accommodation. My friend Nikki stayed overnight with me.
I fell asleep easily, but woke up at 5am. I did some yoga on the terrace and prayed to the, then clear, sky and implored the Greek Gods for no rain…
..they didn’t listen!
