One year anniversary 

Antony and I have just celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary. Since Antony was working during the day we didn’t do much to mark the occasion, but we did exchange cards and go out for dinner and dessert in the evening. I thought it would still be nice to share with you some photos from the day.

If you missed it or you’re interested in checking out the photos from our New England wedding you can see the blog post here. I also did some posts on our honeymoon/road trip through Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine which you can check out here, here, here, here, and finally here.

A little message my mum drew and emailed to me on the morning of our anniversary 

The cards Antony and I gave to each other, which I think sums us up pretty well. I also made him this origami bird because the symbol for 1 year of marriage is paper

We went to an Italian restaurant for dinner called Grazie, and even though we were really full we were so desperate to try Sweet Jesus that had just opened in Midtown that we managed to squeeze in some soft serve ice cream for dessert

I had the Cookies Cookies Cookies & Cream and Antony had the Rocky Road Rage, I think I preferred his ice cream to mine, but looking at this menu again I can see several other flavours calling my name so I’m sure we’ll be back

Antony fines it very hard to not eat the food until I’ve taken a photo, as you can see he’s already digging in. We both got the mini size which I think was big enough, and Antony had his in a cone and I chose a cup

We don’t really drink champagne which is why I only bought a small bottle but I thought it would be nice to do something traditional and a bit fancy, plus I really wanted to use these new glasses I bought from the Cocktail Emporium 

This is part of the wedding gift my sister gave us, rather than just having the photos printed and sticking them in an album ourselves she thought it would be nice to have them professionally printed in a book. We used the company Artifact Uprising and I spent two days choosing the photos and text, and creating the layouts of each page. I think it was well worth the extra effort and we are so pleased with how it turned out

Heres some of the pages from inside. You can choose whether you want a full page image or a couple of smaller images together. If you’d like some more inspiration and examples of what you can create go to their Instagram account
