Mrs SG in the house! Yes I am officially and legally married. It was a nice little ceremony and didnt take long. In fact we were the only couple there who were getting married. Apparently the couple before us didnt pitch.
We woke up early, bathed, got dressed and I did my hair then off we went. We were looking nice and formal. SG was really in a wedding mood. He was talking up a storm while I was quite with my nerves eating me up. I was also tired from lack of sleep and had it not for him talking non-stop, I would have fallen asleep. We got to the venue and met up with our witnesses then sat for a few minutes to see the marriage officer.
We went in and sat down as she took our IDs and started processing our stuff into the system. SG sat with his friend and I sat with mine. Then the marriage officer told us to sit on the front seats and she was asking us questions like are we getting married in community of property and if I will be changing my surname. Both of which SG answered and with such enthusiasm that I just started laughing. He was just the life of the ceremony while I was just giggling the whole time. I thought he’d be awkward and stuff but he was his normal chirpy self. We were then told to stand up and took our vows. Then it was “you may kiss the bride” and he took me in his arms and gave me a big kiss . Then we signed our lives to each other. It all felt so unreal.
The marriage officer gave me forms for a new ID and to get our marriage cerificate. We were there for almost 2 hours having those things done. Poor SG had to stand in the queue while I sat down. I still had to queue for my ID while he was queing for the marriage certificate. We were both exhausted by the time we left.
We met up with friends for lunch afterwards and we were there for most of the afternoon. I was so tired by the time we got home that I couldnt make it for dinner with daughter so we’ll do it tomorrow. Everyone has been making such a fuss about the wedding here at the office today. They even got cake and everything. The IT guy changed my surname on email without me even knowing. Apparently my coleague friend who was the witness told him to do it yesterday. I heard her when she was saying it but I didnt think he was actually going to do it. So you can imagine my surprise this morning when I sent an email and it had a diffrent surname. SG took it upon himself to change my surname and our statuses on facebook yesterday. The guy doesnt waste any time….
I am going to tell SG about the honeymoon today. I have been dying to tell him about it but I wanted to wait until after the wedding so I am looking forward to it. We didnt get to consumate our marriage last night . Sg is so scared to touch me these days. But its cool. Hopefully I’ll get some action at the honeymoon.
We took pictures but I so dont like them. Especially that I dont look myself at all! This baby is making me look like someone else! I couldnt take a full picture with my dress because my maid of honor had to rush off to write exams. Anyway that place was so unromantic to take pictures in.
