Wedding album

C and I finally managed to select the photos for our wedding album and sent them off this week to our photographer. There were so many shots that we liked and it was difficult to keep it under control. It was also hard to imagine what it would all look like styled and I hope that our selections will make sense!

We are looking forward to seeing what our photographer comes up with as the memory of our day.

I also have to try and organise myself to print out some photos from our wedding. There are a few grannies to send pictures to and also I would like to get a larger shot of one of the two of us to frame for our photo wall!

The next phase

Thank you to everyone who has joined me for the ride to our wedding last year! It was a fun journey, there were a few little hiccups along the way but everything pulled together in the end.

It is true that the day flies by so fast! I tried to speak to as many friends as I could but did not manage everyone.

If you would like to keep in touch with what we are up to, I have another blog Afternoon Tea with the Girls. The big news for us at the moment is that we are building a house, and I am slowly posting photos of the progress!

There are still more wedding items that I will post to this blog, such as the reading we selected and other bits and pieces that I wish to document.

Wedding: Locations

These are all professional photos, taken by Anton Chong of C Photography.

This are some of our location shots. We were very happy to be finished by the end, it was quite humid and my feet were numb! I am not sure that I had any lipstick left either, the photographer kept wanting us to "smooch" and I think that Chad had more of my lipstick on by the end of it than I did.

Such a lovely shot! This spot was just next to our ceremony.

We wandered through the Boardwalk, next to the Scented Gardens. It is such a peaceful place.

The boys. It looks like SJ is not too sure...

So nice to sit down and take the weight off our feet!

Wedding: Reception

Making our entrance.

Words of wisdom from our best man.

My cheeky groom.

It seemed such a shame to cut the masterpiece, but we did. A tip though is to make sure that you cut the cake early on, to give the kitchen time to slice it up and put it into bags. We did not cut our cake until later during the reception and I think that people missed out on getting a piece.

Awesome cake!

Wedding: Ceremony

These are all professional photos, taken by Anton Chong of C Photography.

This selection of photos is from the ceremony. We were married at the Scented Gardens on the South Perth foreshore. It is a lovely venue, a paved area with climbing plants over a timber structure.

Dad giving me a helping hand. As you do!

Standing around, waiting. We really were not sure what order the girls should walk. The question was whether the chief bridesmaid went first or last. We ended up asking Anton. Last was the response, and so the other two girls went in order of dress colour.

Waiting to hear the music. There were technical issues with our Portable soundsystem. I am not really sure what they were but I had to ask our MC if it was playing before Dad and I started!

Who gives this woman? Thankfully Dad refrained from asking for a couple of cows for me. It could have been ugly.

My knees were shaking! Apart from that I was great and could not stop smiling. I was so happy.

Make sure that you pick the correct ring! C's wedding ring is too large for any of my fingers.

Now it is my turn. I love those cufflinks.

First kiss as man and wife.

Signing the paperwork. Let's make it official before we head off to party!

My bridemaids are the first to congratulate me. C's family give him their blessings.

Happy families! We both have a new sister.

My Mum's side of the family! I had cousins fly in from Melbourne, Adelaide and Broome to make our wedding. Thank you for sharing our day!

Man and wife. Ready and primed for more photos.

Wedding: Preparation

Hello again!

It has been a wee while since I posted, and I really wanted to get my wedding photos out there. These are all professional photos, taken by Anton Chong of C Photography.

This selection of photos is from before the ceremony during our preparation time.

My dress, on rumpled bed.

These shoes, whilst the style to suit my dress, were so uncomfortable that by the end of photos I had lost feeling in at least four of my toes and the rest of my foot was tingling! It took a week for my toes to come back to feeling normal, and even then if I squatted down and changed the pressure on my toes they still tingled.

Mum struggled with the zip on my dress, so my sister E ended up making me safe.

Family photo. We do not have enough nice photos of our family!

My beautiful bridesmaids. Oh, and me as well!

Two of me!
