    All our friends are getting married!

    As most of you probably know, I was never a big person for weddings. That was, of course, until I got married myself! Now I am completely obsessed – I love going to weddings, seeing photos of weddings and have asked Kim countless times to come with me to wedding expos – since our wedding 🙂 But the best part about weddings is, of course, seeing your friends and family tie the knot.

    What’s in a name?

    You think you have everything sorted before you get married. Sure, you’ve made the big decisions, you both agree and are happy with what you’re doing. Then you actually get married and it all changes… somehow. It’s hard to describe, but things just don’t feel the same. One of those things I’m referring to is changing my name…

    Wedding Credits

    It takes so many people and so much planning for a wedding. We sincerely hope all our guests had as great (ok fantastic) a day as we did! We couldn’t have done it without these amazing professionals in Melbourne: Peter Kotsa – Photographer Made our day so relaxed and complete, a true artist with whom we had so much fun!! Phivo @ Track Visual – Videographer Not only entertained but made sure we all knew who really was the most important person of the day 😉 Who goes first again??!

    Hen Pecked

    I’m now officially a hen – no longer a spring chicken! Thanks to my absolutely fantastic bridesmaids, I had an AWESOME night! They went to one hell of a massive effort to make my night so much fun and I can’t thank Angelina (MRS organised aka the teacher), Laura (the water giver-er – thanks for not letting me get sick and keeping my glass full) and Rachael (THE most strongest person alive – you’re absolutely amazing)… I’m yet to see a photo – and at this stage, I’m a little worried. Maybe that’s because my auntie only has photos of the “light entertainment”.

    Origami Cranes

    The crane’s habit of mating with only one partner for the duration of its life makes it a strong symbol for marital fidelity and honor. As a result, the origami crane is a powerful symbol for loyalty, nobility and beauty. According to Japanese tradition, anyone with the patience and commitment to fold 1,000 paper cranes will be granted their most desired wish, because they have exhibited the cranes’ loyalty and recreated their beauty. The true story of Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes demonstrates the power of one person to create change and the values that are cherished by all cultures.

    Weddings vs Sky Diving

    It hit me quite suddenly – and very quickly.  And it happened about 4 hours before my first wedding dress fitting.  Those three words – I’m getting married. Yep, scarily it has taken that long to sink in that I’m actually getting hitched!  After freaking out for a good few hours (and severely needing an alcholic drink), I finally sat down and confided in a good friend. Strangely enough, he could compare my pre-wedding nerves with an experience of his own – sky diving.  Yep, you read right.  Perhaps the two scariest events in one’s lifetime (add a third for any guy who has to pop the question).

    Why did I look like a fat Giraffe?

    Hiring a suit for my wedding I thought was much like buying a suit at a shop, but boy was I wrong. Looking like a fat giraffe on my wedding day was not the look I was looking for but with the wrong suit/shirt/tie combination I could only hope the photographer was a pro with Photoshop editing. So what did I learn on my suit hiring excursion with Ben?
