Peony Bouuquet

Okay, everyone has been calling and emailing and texting me about photos, but you're gonna have to wait! I am still waiting to see them and as soon as I have them I will share- I promise! It will probably be after Christmas now. We are busy getting ready for Christmas, as I imagine you all are- and we are also moving in a couple of weeks we have started the dreaded task of packing. You might have to be patient, but stay tuned as the day was amazing, and I'm sure the photos will be worth the wait.
All I have to offer you is a couple of photos from the set up the night before. We basically set everything up the evening before as MIL decided to do lots of last minute house renovations! Lucky we had an army of wonderful helpers. 
My lovely homemade peony bouquet, above- I gotta say making bouquets is harder than it looks, especially at midnight the night before your wedding! The peonies were so stunning though, it would have been pretty difficult to go too wrong.

The guest desk set up- we had a little library card box set up for people to write in (to carry on the book theme from the invites), though most people missed this- too busy drinking! And our little seed packet favours for guests to take. Watched over by my grandma and Adam's grandparents.

I will back with more as soon as they arrive! Love to you all :) And many many thanks again to everyone who helped and supported us.

Wedding Week!!

Oh friends the time has come, it's wedding week!
I've been wrapped up in last minute preparations- Organising the wedding music (probably one of the most fun jobs EVER!), Locations scouting and planning with our photographic super team (our friends Sky & Dan, bless them), helping Adam's mum to do last minute fix it jobs at her house, allocating the remaining wedding day duties to friends & family and generally getting very excited!

I've had a hair trial run, and the beehive is definitely a keeper. I've written my vows, though I could have kept obsessing over them for days and I'm so so nervous about reading them. I've made and wrapped presents for my wonderful maids of awesomeness. 

We still have a long list of last minute things that need to be done, but I think it will all happen nicely- today I'm feeling confident, tomorrow who knows!

I'm very very excited about picking my best friend (and bridesmaid) from New Zealand up on Wednesday and spending lots of time with her and her baby belly. First baby, I'm so excited to see her!!!

I probably won't be posting again until after the wedding and our mini honeymoon (two child free nights in the city staying here), when I will be back to tell you all about and share masses of photos I'm sure.

Thank you everyone for your ideas and support and listening to me ramble.  I'll see you on the other side! Woop woop!
