Our very talented wedding photographers – Joe Galvin and Liv Purvis – not only managed to get some fabulous photos from our wedding ceremony and wedding reception but also managed to create a wedding video for us too! As it’s quite a large file, it won’t upload here so I have made a YouTube account where you can watch it if you wish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgnJ2stgQzg If you are interested in hearing more about any other parts of the wedding, I have… View Post

It feels like a very long time ago that I was talking about how we created our rustic Save the Dates (what a long engagement we had!) but as they went down so well and were very cost effective, we decided to do the same thing again and create our own country wedding invitations. As there was going to be lots of eucalyptus and elegant greenery at our wedding, we had wanted to incorporate that into the invitations. We went on… View Post

The drinks reception was one of my favourite parts of our wedding day. The nerves from the ceremony had gone, we had taken all of the family pictures and I was excited to properly chat to our friends and family (and drink a glass of fizz)!

However it soon became apparent that the high street didn’t really offer… View Post

You probably noticed that things got a little quiet over here mid August- mid September but that is because I was busy getting married! (And it was surprisingly busier than either of us anticipated!) But now we are back, a few pounds heavier from our honeymoon, and as I love hearing about other people’s wedding days, I wanted to share some of the photos and memories from the day. I also want to say a big thanks to our lovely photographers… View Post

At first I really enjoyed planning a wedding. Time was mostly spent browsing Pinterest and reading wedding magazines, getting excited talking about all of the things we could do. Also because we were having a 2.5 year engagement, the pressure was truly off. Half way through, the planning picked up as we booked our venue, caterers and I started trying on wedding dresses. It was still fun but we also began to realise just how expensive all of these things… View Post
