If you know me well, you know I love a wedding. So when a friend tells me she’s engaged I’m full of adrenaline; emotion and excitement overload.
When you have a baby you’re exposed to a new world and a new network. New life, new adventures, new friends. Amy and I, we just clicked. We’re quite opposite really, she’s calm, I’m crazy! She’s tiny, I’m tall. She’s into her jeans I’m into my dresses.
Planning a wedding when you have a newborn is no easy feat but Amy, with the help of Hubby Aiden, had a gorgeous wedding day.
I accompanied her to the florist all those months back to help her choose the flowers. For a spring wedding it was whites and lemons, with the theme of “simple elegance” exuding through.
The months leading up to the wedding friends and family were scavenging and salvaging old jam jars, diffuser bottles and spice pots.
The week leading up to the wedding we stocked up on flowers in preparation for my mass make-up on Saturday morning.
There was an abundance of flowers and tonnes of jars, so much so that I didn’t have time to use them all (hair and make up were calling…you know). But I filled the brief anyway.
So simple elegance it was; just one or two stems, and a touch here and there.
The sun shone brilliantly and it was the warmest day of 2016 yet; perfect for such a lovely couple.
It was a honour to be a part of the big day, and I’m proud to share it all with you! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together, Mr & Mrs Charles.
