Ok so my lovely big sister told me its about time to start putting together my S&T -thanks ladybugg!
Well where to start - after getting engaged we were very quick to select a celebrant and photographer, also we have chosen our ceremony location and reception venue.
Our Celebrant is Elfia Pattinson - she is a highschool teacher at one of the local schools and was the English teacher of one of my bridesmaids and groomsmen : ) She is an absolute character and we really clicked with her - she is the only celebrant we considered and said yes straight away haha! Her webpage is http://www.ceremonieswithelfia.com.au/
Our Photographer is Nikki Blades Photography. Nikki is wonderful and even talked us out of two hours work and reduced our price which was fantastic! I thought we'd need 8 hours coverage and her wonderful work figured it out to only needing 6 hours so saved a bunch! Check out some of her photos here http://www.bladesphotography.com/
Ceremony location is in a little park at the waterfront. We are getting married under the trees on the grass looking forward to the ocean : )
We are hoping to have the reception at the Redcliffe Leagues Club. They are holding the biggest room for us (we are having approx 120 people) also they are holding another room for me for a wet weather venue and we ahven't paid a dime towards it yet - how nice : ) There 2012 packages aren't out yet so until this happens I'm not 100% on them but at this stage I am 95% sure haha
Now onto the pictures. I am having my wedding dress made by goodgoodschina so will let you all know how it turns outas they are an online company. They are also making my bm dresses so I have asked them to make my wedding dress and one of the bm dresses to see how they look - both dresses only came to about $350!
This is the bm dress
but instead of the flower I'm having this brooch
then the girls hair will be like this
with frangipani's in the back
and maybe a starfish hairclip on the side
Their bouquet's will be a frangipani posie possibly with a starfish in the center
this but without the black tulle at the bottom
I've found the jewellery for the girls also but this is their present so I won't put it up as my MOH frequents my posts haha!
Now for me : )
my glorious shoes
I will be adding some lace to the bottom of the one with the starfish to make it a bit more elegant : )
Jewllery wise I am wearing my sisters/MOH pearl necklace and bracelet (something borrowed) I was given pearl earrings for my 21st from my FH's parents which I am hoping will suit also.
I have my nose pierced and have had a diamond nose stud made in white gold as my something old (it was a diamond from my mum's engagement ring but then she had the stone size upgraded - it is perfect size for the nose stud though!)
This is my e-ring
and I've had a wishbone wedder made to suit (photo's soon)
I definitely have the something blue covered lol
I'd like my hair to be like this
Ceremony wise we are having this arbour at the front where I turn to walk down the aisle - we are getting married under two trees so doesn't really work there but I still wanted to have it
We will be doing a sand ceremoy using these vases
which I have matched up with our bonbonierre and name tag
FH has decided that since he cannot see what I am wearing I am not allowed to know what he will be wearing - so can't post that up : /
Stationary - for our engagement announcement we are had this
Then this is our engagement invite : )
it is a royal theme however its kinda interpret as you want so Wally Lewis and Michael Jackson are also ok
Our saves the dates - which I am stoked with are
and our wedding invites will be similar to this
At the reception venue I would like to have starfish pinned to the chair sash similar to
and then have frangipani's and starfish in the centrepiece like this
then our cake - haven't decided on this yet but do have a starfish cake topper!
like the one on top of this cake
So now that I've filled the page I'll leave it at that for now - until I get some more : )
