Hey guys, its been a while. Today is the 1 year anniversary of the Diary and I thought that to celebrate properly I should upload the Wedding. I origonaly was going to write the sequel with this as the first chapter but thats been put on hiatas, sorry. I just couldn't find the inspiration to do it, plus Transition Year has been hectic! I may decide to continue it in the near future so if you want to see it put this on alert and i'll let you know :)

Thanks for all your support of the Diary, it means a lot to me! I never thought I would get more than one review and look at this, I have over 370! Its gobsmacking and I hope you all know how happy you have made me!

With Love, (and hugs and kisses and cookies),
Katie Swan (bite-me-im-irish)

A longer life isn't always a better one. In the end you just get tired.

Doctor Who


As I waited for Carly to be ready I looked out of the window over the winter wedding. The sun was just setting sending a pinkish hue over the garden. Jacob was waiting under the arch which was covered in white lilies. Seth was standing beside him as his best man.

"Dad?" Carly's voice sounded from behind me and I turned around to meet her. My jaw dropped when I saw her. She was wearing Bella's wedding dress from when she married Henry and she looked like a vision in white. "How do I look?" she asked, twirling around.

"Like your mother" I whispered. I tried to push away the feelings of remorse and longing for Bella and smiled at my beautiful daughter. She smiled back and threw her arms around my neck.

"I love you Dad" she whispered and I wrapped my arms around her hugging her close breathing in her wonderfully unique scent.

"I love you too Carly more than you'll ever know" As I put her down the wedding march sounded and as I looked out of the window once more I saw all of the guests standing up.

"Are you ready? There's still time to reconsider someone, you know, less lupine?" I asked her as I took her arm in mine. I was only half-serious, I had grown to like Jacob over the last year or so but I was still weary of the fact that he could hurt her. Images of Emily, Sam's wife, sprung to mind.

"Dad, I love Jacob" she stressed, as we headed towards the doors. I nodded wearily and kissed her on the forehead before the doors opened and we headed towards the arch where Jacob was waiting with his eyes glazed over looking at Carly.

'Beautiful' was his only thought as he watched my daughter and me approaching him as we walked down the aisle made of pink and white rose petals. I watched Carly through Jacob's eyes and found myself being hit with about 5 emotions at once; pride, love, sorrow, happiness, longing.

When we reached Jacob and Emmet, who was acting minister, I placed Carly's small cold hand into Jacob's large hot one and gave them my best wishes. Carly flung her arms around my neck and I kissed her cheek before releasing her. I then moved to Jacob's left to stand beside Seth.

While the ceremony was in progress I looked out over the guests. My family were sitting near the front and Carlisle was smiling reassuringly at me. His thoughts were nothing but pride for his family. Esme on the other hand was remembering Bella and wishing she was here to see Carly get married. I moved on from her thoughts quickly before I could dwell too much on the fact that my sweet Bella was gone.

Jasper was thinking about how beautiful and overwhelming the whole wedding was and I chuckled quietly knowing that these thoughts were the result of everyone's feelings converging on him. I moved on to Jasper's wife and my best friend/sister Alice's mind.

I know you're in my mind Edward. How are you holding up? She thought at me. I scratched my forearm which she knows means that I'm alright. That's good. Let me know if you need anything, shoulder to sob on and all that. I half smiled and nodded slightly letting her know I was thankful.

Rosalie's thoughts were about how well Carly looked. She had downplayed herself as much as she could to make sure Carly was the centre of everyone's attention. Rosalie had really pulled through for Carly over the last year acting as her mother alongside Alice and Esme as she adjusted to life in college and life without Bella.

Other than my family the other guests included Jacob's sisters, the Denali coven, Jacob's pack and their various imprints and Carly's best friend and pen pal from Ireland, Nula, who up until yesterday believed I was Carly's long lost brother.

Carly has since filled her in on everything but judging by poor Nula's thoughts she was very uncomfortable and under the impression that she was very plain compared to all of the beautiful people around her. I felt bad for her she seemed like a nice person, she kind of reminded me of Angela.

As the ceremony drew to a close I was called upon to bring forth the rings. I pulled the silvery pouch containing the two white-gold wedding bands out of my pocket and handed them to Emmet.

Jacob placed Carly's ring on her finger and I watched as my daughter and her love were eternally bonded together.

"Let this ring be a symbol of my promises to you and a reminder of my devotion to you. I am honoured to call you my wife." A tear slipped down Carly's face as Jacob pushed the band up her finger to meet her engagement ring. She repeated Jacob's word and in turn slid his noticeably bigger ring up his finger.

They both said I do and they were pronounced man and wife. I watched as Jacob placed a small but affectionate kiss on Carly's lips before he lead her back down the aisle.


Clink! Clink! SMASH! Everyone's attention was caught as Emmet held the remains of his broken champagne glass in his hand; it was just a prop for photographs. He of course didn't care though and grinned manically.

"Speech!" he declared looking over at me. All the guests followed suit and picked up their glasses, tapping them lightly with their spoons. Emmett received a death glare from the family as I stood up.

"Eh, hi, I'm Edward Cullen. I would first like to congratulate the bride and groom. Jacob, I know I haven't been the nicest guy to you over the years but I can't picture any better person for Carly than you – well maybe a human but you can't have everything I suppose" I smiled my half-smile at him as everyone chuckled. Seth thumped Jacob on the back and he smiled back at me. "And Carly, I love you so much. Up until 2 years ago I didn't have anyone. I couldn't face my family, Bella was gone and I had nobody to turn to, but then you arrived at my doorstep and brought the light back into my life.

"Jacob is the luckiest guy in the world to have a wife like you with so much love, beauty, talent and compassion.

"If your mother was here today I know she'd say the same. She'd be just as proud as I am to have you as a daughter.

"So I'd like for everyone to raise their glasses in a toast to the happy couple – my beautiful daughter Carly and her equally beautiful" I winked at Jacob "husband Jacob, may they live a long and happy life together."I raised my prop glass and Carly rose to give me a kiss, tears were rolling down her cheek.

"Don't cry, love, just be happy." I whispered while hugging her close to me for about the billionth time that day.

"I am happy Dad, so very happy" she sniffed.


Smiling at the memory of Carly's wedding day and with the image of her radiant face glowing with happiness I stepped into my impending fate.

(A/N: this can be ignored unless I continue with the sequel)


Carly's Point of view:

Today has to be the best day of my life. I just wish my mom and Henry could have been here to see it. A single tear rolled down my cheek and I felt two strong hot arms wrap around my waist.

"Hey Wifey" whispered Jacob in my ear, chuckling slightly. "Don't cry, honey, today is meant to be happy." He kissed my temple and I leant back into him. The large mirror in front of us reflected a happy couple who looked completely in love and I felt my heart swell with happiness.

"I am happy; I just wish my mom was here." I said quietly, comforted hugely by his presence. I wished I could freeze this moment forever, everyone who I loved was around me – well almost everyone.

"Me too, honey, me too. She'd be so proud of you." I smiled warmly and turned to kiss him lightly. He started to deepen the kiss, his tongue licking my lip begging for entrance but before I could do anything we were interrupted by Alice calling us.

"Hey you two don't think that I can't see where this is going! Get your butts down here it's almost time to go!" Jacob's huge body vibrated with laughter as he pulled away and took my hand. He led me out of the bedroom where I had changed out of my mother's dress moments earlier.

Down in the hall all of the guests had gathered to watch us leave. My father walked up to me and I took his hand. It felt weird to have Jacob's too hot hand in one and my Dad's too cold one in the other.

"Before we leave I just wanted to sing for all of you. This was one of my Mom's favourite songs to listen to – when she listened to music at all. I don't know if a lot of you know it because it's quite old. It's called These are Special Times and it's by Celine Dion."

I squeezed the two most important men in my life's hands and began to sing, pouring my heart and soul into the song – for my mother.

In these moments, moments of our lives
All the world is ours, and this world is so right
You and I sharing this time together, ohh
Sharing the same dream
As time goes by we will find

These are the special times, times we'll remember
These are the precious times
The tender times, we'll hold in our hearts forever
These are the sweetest times, these times together
And through it all one thing will always be true
The special times are the times I share with you

Mmm oh yeah

With each moment, moment passing by
We'll make memories that will last our lives
As you and I travel through time together, ooh ooh yeah
Living this sweet dream
And every day we can say

These are the special times, times we'll remember
These are the precious times
The tender times, we'll hold in our hearts forever
These are the sweetest times, these times together
And through it all one thing will always be true, oh ooh yeah
The special times are the times I share with you


I ignored the screams of the people surrounding me because I was in my happy place and soon I would be with my Bella.

(this too can be ignored)
