Hello ladies!!!! This will more than likely be my last post on here!!! I just wanted to share wit...
Sorry to drag them all out like this... hope you don't mind the installments! I just don't want to overload you otherwise.
So were we up to nibblies in the trees? I think so.
After the ceremony and the family/relative shots (which were directly after), we allowed an hour (from 4 - 5pm) to mingle with guests while drinking strawberry punch and nibbling on giant old-fashioned cookies!
This was so much fun.. I was just floating around from person to person... trying to get through them all (esp the ones that weren't coming to the reception that night).
The biscuits were a huge hit! Mum and I made them all at the start of the week. The tea, coffee and punch were arranged by a lady at the church who did it for $150, so that took the pressure off us.
Our photographer was almost like our Coordinator, as she came and dutifully pulled us away from our guests at about 5pm to begin our professional shoot. We started at the church front.
We moved down to a park for a few more with the bridal party.
Then just across the road we spotted this old boathouse with weathered boards and rambling ivy... we decided this looked perfect for some polaroid love...
Say hello to the hottie....
Weensy bit of tushie lovin' please...
Mmm this is such a juicy one :)
Jase adores this one.. I don't mind it myself actually teehee..
The wind was just right!
And my beautiful sisters....
A lot of them were a bit more artsy/alternative than what my photographer would usually take on her own, but I had a few 'must have shots', so I printed a dozen or so of these off, and sent them to her, so she could see my vision. She carried a couple of these around with her on the day, to make sure she got what I wanted. I wasn't taking any chances! That is a tip I'd definitely recommend. Or give them links/email photos. The trick is to get your message across. You have ONE chance to get the RIGHT photos on your day.
Next installment has some of my TOP favourites.. can't wait to share them with you all!!
Hope your wedding plans are getting there, and that you're relaxed and enjoying every minute of building up to your own day!!
