Thanks guys, it actually did turn out to be one of the happiest days of my life!

Pics are online at last! The proffesional photographer ones are yet to be finished but these ones were taken by guests:

Well now the Saxo isn't mine, but I'm still not sure I'd listen to a man who has owned a Hyundai and thinks mk2 Golfs are fun :P

Gorgeous! (and the car's not bad either)

Smashing DS, I'm sure I recognise that one from somewhere, racking my brains now ... (=3 seconds) OK, nope, I got nuthin'

I guess not much has changed in the practical sense as you were a family already, but how awesome to have it all signed, sealed and settled, best of luck to you all!

Great stuff! Very best wishes to you and yours Kitch =D>

(It made me a bit nostalgic seeing those pics of Winchester; I used to live about 30 seconds walk from the Guildhall in Upper Brook Street - nice place.)

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Cheers! You're right, it's nice to know it's all signed, sealed, delivered etc.

It is a nice place. There are a few nobheads there, being quite a posh place. But overall it's nice - I was born there, as were two of my boys. We also got our first house there and it's where Nat went to Uni, so overall it holds some meaning.

It's not mate, up close it's a bit of a mess! It's a good 20ft car, but that doesn't bother me too much as I like to drive the thing rather than clean it.

Kitch is Hitch'd

Sorry i had to, congratulations.

I get the impression you've used the same excuse to get your BX on the road as i have "well dear, it has to go, it was part of my family long before you where". I haven't found a DS locally, so a couple of classic bangers for me (1926 Rolls Royce and a 30's Daimler).

It does beg the question, are you on the BXClub during your honey moon? And do you expect to live to the end of it :D

LOL! Hadn't thought of the hitched tag!

The BX was around before my O/H though, and the kids. But no honeymoon yet - I'm at work! We figured seeing as we've been living together for like 4-5 years and have 3 kids we probably don't need one yet! But I think a weekend in Paris or up to Wales/Scotland might be on the cards.

That's kinda what i meant, me saying that to her, i mean she didn't have any GCSE's when I bought my valver. That car has seen me through a lot.

That suggests you have very defined ideas about the activities that should go on during a honey moon. I'm looking forward to leaving my phone and computer at home, and vanishing off the face of the world for a week.
