Newbie from the UK!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


My name is Siobhan (Shiv for short) and my partner and I have been engaged for 3 weeks but we have been together 8 years. We have always said we would want to get married abroad but now I can actually start researching it!


We still don't have a wedding date or definate destination - its changing a lot at the moment. Ideally we would want to get married in South Africa whilst on safari but we don't think our parents would be too impressed with that.


My finance and I live in Devon in the UK. I work as a civilian in the police and my h2b is a submariner in the royal navy. We have a dog called Snowy and two bunnies.


Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Shiv,


Congrats and welcome to the forum. I'm an anglophile myself but it would not be practical to get married in the UK. I will have to wait and take FI to England in a few years. He hasn't been yet and I get antsy when too many years pass between UK visits.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
