I had logged off my social media for a while to get everything in...
Oh yes I am now an official Married woman. I am the wife of Patrick Hogan.
I am now officially Tracey Hogan but for my business I will continue to use Tracey McCann.
As you know for those of you who are married, planning a marriage is stressful. Patrick and myself had said we'll go for it when we were away for new year's 2020, the timing felt right for us. We planned for May with a very small close family ceremony... Not realising the affect Covid would have on our plans.
To have the wedding in May with just 5 people would be a disaster so we pushed it to October feeling optimistic that it would be grand by then. 🙈💩
We literally had to change all of our plans, from the original wedding date to the venue for the ceremony and the venue for the afters too, all in the space of 3 months.💪
Everything was working out. We were following the guidelines etc.
The emotional stress was really tough, we did not know weather we were coming or going. We kept our heads up and we followed our hearts, with the help of our Amazing families.💚
My mam and Dad kindly let us have the ceremony in their back garden and the creativity was put in was mind blowing 🙀
My mam really went for it and designed so many beautiful things out of love, even down to my flowers.
She laid out the garden so as to comply with social distancing. The only guests were our immediate families and our friends who were directly involved. I could invite a very good friend because some people had backed out
The day seems like a blur, did it really happen? 🤣 But yes it did happen and what I can really feel is such love and seeing beautiful smiles and pride from both our wonderful families.
This made me feel so grateful to be marrying such a strong man and feeling showered with pure love through these very uncertain times.
The wedding was fabulous but it really really zapped so much energy from us.
We feel stronger than ever and in fact we cannot believe how strong we really are to go through all of this.
We were beside the sea for 2 nights and we absolutely loved it. It was very healing and refreshing for us and the weather was just incredible, very unexpected. We were very lucky to have booked another 2 night break on the Tuesday to Portmarnock which was another treat for us to be beside the sea again 🌊😍
When you are beside the sea, you can literally decide where you want to be in the moment.
The timing was really on our side with the situation the way it is now. The universe was definitely listening to us 😁
We definitely need time to celebrate with less anxiety over us in time and in a few years we will celebrate and do what we wanted to do.
The good news is that we got married during the current situation, everyone respected each other around them and they really enjoyed it as people have been starved from doing what is it that they love. Who doesn't appreciate and love getting dressed up and meeting people face to face who you haven't seen in a while? And having a laugh and chats together?
This is what is needed now after months of this. We are safe. It is important to show up to the world as our best and create positivity and share our light amongst others.
The government want to instill and maintain our fears about this situation. At first it was concerning but we are now fully aware of the right action to take. We know what to do to look after each other, right? Locking down the country is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. People need to stand up and be counted, and feel what is right.
Connect with your inner being and you won't go wrong, be the leader of your own journey.
Patrick and myself got married through a very difficult situation and it was not to put others at risk, or make it all about myself...we were just tired of waiting.
I fully knew everything would be ok and so did our families. Anyone who was not comfortable with it we did not force them to attend because everyone has a choice and nobody had the right to judge them for it...as nobody has a right to judge us for our decision.
Listen to your heart... How do you feel right now?
What can you do to bring your vibrations up? 💜💜
Remember always be yourself and remember you have nothing to fear, you know you are safe and well and you know everything is working out for you when you step up in your own light. 🥰🤗
Thank you so much for your wonderful wishes, I will reply when I can ❤️❤️
