I have to admit something; I wasn't overly keen about being the centre of attention on my wedding day. Ok, there was a narcissistic part of me saying "this is your moment Sarah, they'll see how pretty you are with your hair and make-up done properly and not looking like your usual put-a-pair-of-jeans-on-and-leave-the-house self" but inside I felt like a complete fake. Probably because a) I love my jeans and b) I was thinking about other people's view of me and not my own opinion.
