Only you.

Five years ago today, I married my best friend in front of our friends and family in a beautiful church in Thurne, Norfolk. The church held extra-special significance for Bobby as his grandparents and parents wed there too.

Unbeknown to me, one of Bobby’s best friends, Ian, set up cameras to catch parts of the day (he even caught the dusting of snow). Following the wedding, we went to Venice for our honeymoon and I was shown the video when we go home. Many tears (of joy) were shed!

You may or may not know but we are HUGE fans of ‘The Office’. Even our cats are called Tim & Gareth, named after two of the main characters in the show. Ricky, Bobby’s brother, and bestman, pulled out the best-bestman’s speech ever with a video filmed in the style of ‘The Office’ (a small part is shown in the video below).

Genuinely for me, it was only him.

Our first dance was ‘Only You, by Yazoo,’ which was also, the first dance of Tim & Dawn in ‘The Office.’ I first ‘met’ Bobby when he spoke at my graduation in 2006, then we had a series of sliding door encounters, before working together at The Click for 18 months before becoming a couple. Genuinely for me, it was only him.

If you are fans of ‘The Office,’ then I’d recommend you watch the video to the very end.

And here is my chance to say a big thank you to Bobby for being my sounding board, my motivational partner, father to Stanley and best friend. Here’s to the next 12 months and some more incredible memories…
