Do you know how many hours per day you spend on Social Media?
Social media and internet in general take up so much of our time that I am confident if it didn’t exist I could easily have time to:

Whilst Bear was taking pictures of the boys getting ready, I was frozen stuck in front of a gorgeous wedding gown (see bottom of Photostory for useful links and stuff!). The isle had been set in front of a vineyard and everything was absolutely beautiful.
A lot of guests had travelled from different part of the world to attend the wedding. Steph is from New Zealand and Ryan is from South African, some were also coming from Canada, Norway, and of course London. Comes without saying that after travelling that long, nobody seemed particularly fussed when it started raining just before the Ceremony…
