Meet the first of our Blogging Brides - Kadi
My name is Kadi and I work as a full time teacher. I teach Sociology, RE and Ethics in a secondary school in West Sussex. I love teaching but I have lots of other hobbies that I enjoy in my spare time. I really enjoy cooking and experimenting with food, although not everything turns out particularly well! I am also a keen photographer. I hate the thought of all the small precious moments in life being forgotten and photos are a great way of remembering these. I spend hours compiling photos and thoughts into scrap books to look back on in the future. Another keen interest of mine is health and nutrition. In my spare time I work for a worldwide health and nutritional company, educating people how to live a healthier and more active lifestyle. This is something I would like to do full time in the future.
The very first time I saw my now fiancé was when I was 17. Our parents had caravans opposite each other in Newquay. It wasn’t until we were 27 that we started chatting and spending time together. Only 6 months after our first conversation on Facebook, I had a new teaching job and I had moved 3 hours south to live with my fiancé. It was the scariest but the best decision I have ever made. My partner proposed in May this year in our favourite restaurant. We are planning to get married in August 2016 and I can’t wait!
Getting married when I’m 30 means I have seen a lot of weddings and talked to a lot of brides. I knew from listening to other brides that I wanted our wedding to be stress free and simple, yet unforgettable. My family and friends live all over the country so planning this wedding was always going to be a little tricky. However, I love a challenge and I can’t wait to share all of my ideas with you about how to save money, DIY your wedding and reduce stress.
