A lot of people have asked me why Jordan and I decided to get married – it’s a lot of money, it’s a lot of stress, and it doesn’t change anything about your relationship – and whilst those are completely valid points, and I 100% understand where it is coming from, there is something much deeper to it.
Jordan is my best friend. He’s been by my side for the last 5 years and been through some of the toughest times I’ve ever faced. When you get into a relationship, you never know the hand that life is going to throw at you, but having someone to open up to who understands when you want to be left alone or need a shoulder to cry on is so important.
And then there is the love side. I adore him, and have done since the day we met, not in the same way, as it started as a friendship, but my feelings have grown massively for him since then, but he has always been someone who made me laugh – and what more could you want from a relationship.
In all honesty, I’m hoping marriage doesn’t change our relationship at all, because for us, it’s pretty perfect. But one of the main reasons I do want to get married is to show the world that we are one unit who would do anything for each other. We are a team and I feel as though that’s what marriage will bring to our relationship.
And finally, bringing all our friends and family together in one place is one of the big, main reasons we have decided to undergo a wedding. A lot of them will never have met before, a lot will have known each other for years, but this will be a day for us to celebrate our love with our nearest and dearest, and I can’t wait for it already.
6 months to go!
