So without a doubt, this was by far the shortest trip to Jordan I’ve ever taken!
I wasn’t even planning on coming to Jordan this year what with everyone coming over for the wedding but in February my older cousin announced that he was getting married the week before us. So there was no way I was missing this wedding. I have always said I will attend every single one of my cousin’s weddings and I will not stumble at number 2!
So that’s how Topher and I ended up spending 3 full days in Jordan. And that’s pretty much why there’s only a few photos that aren’t the wedding.
Day 1 saw us heading to my auntie’s for a huge family lunch to celebrate both weddings. That cake was good!
And of course with everyone in attendance we had to get the first family photo in close to a decade.
Then day 2 was the wedding. Arab weddings are pretty much evening affairs. Your hands get sore from all the clapping and there’s lots of dancing which I love. The wedding was at Amman Waves which is a water park and it was all very pretty.
I love outdoor night time weddings – sparkly lights!
Each table was named after a city and unsurprisingly we were on London.
Had to get a posed shot. I loved my dress. I bought it from ASOS* and it was so comfy. It was pretty long though so we got it shortened at a tailor’s in Amman. I got my hair done at the same salon I usually go to in Amman too.
Cheeky selfie! Me, Topher, my cousin and my brother.
The happy couple. My cousin is the groom.
These giant sparklers were everywhere!
Day 3 was spent at brunch with everyone and then a trip to the cinema before going to bed and getting up at 4am for the airport.
And breathe! Next year I’m planning a 2 week holiday there to make up some lost time from this year.
