The Waddington's

Miss C is now Mrs W...a delightful day, wonderful weather, scrummy food and super tunes!

I was very happy with how her bouquet turned out... she loved it, and I loved working with fresh flowers again. I believe floristry is like riding a never forget!

The Wonderful Dutchman and me danced the night away knowing that our big day is next....
...But for now I want to Congratulate Mr & Mrs Waddington...Thank you for a brilliant, fun and very happy day xxx

What are you doing today?

My kitchen resembles a flower shop.....

...some stunning Peonies madam?

...How about a striking Blush orchid?

....Or a simple scented Freesia?

...or the classic beauty of Roses?

Well that time has come to create Miss C's Wedding Flowers.....I am slightly nervous as it has been a while, but I have The Wonderful Dutchman to help if I need it!!

I am very excited to be able to make her bouquet, and very honoured she asked me. She is having a Picnic Wedding reception with a BBQ! Picnic rugs are the new Wedding accessory don't you know!

Our Wedding ~ Update

I cannot believe that in 2 months our wedding day will be has flown by so quickly.
We are in the final stages of completing all the small, but very important bits....I made a start on the seating plan board today....

I started to paint and then remembered I needed to take a before and after shot of the board... hence the green paint on the top!!

It is just a big cheap cork board which I have painted.... I will then put either an old map or some wallpaper on the cork....and then pin peoples names to the correct table. I thought this would be good idea, so if there are changes to the plan all I have to do it re-pin them somewhere else!

I love this green....and it looks heavenly against the red of our window box....
I also made a start on the order of service......this is going to be very simple with a cute handmade look...and yes the photo booth picture is making an appearance again!

These simple things are what has been the most fun about the whole wedding has made it so personal, and so very US...which is surely what it is all about!
I also had a dress fitting, wine tasting, champagne tasting and a hair trial all in one day! I am finally feeling very organised!
Happy Sunday everyone xxx

Surrounded by Love

My utterly perfect Australian family, who might be half way around the world...but who's kindness and words of wisdom have been so fantastically helpful.
My beautiful Ma who has been my rock. My Darling Sister who is one of my Bridesmaids, my style guru and a true friend.

My Wonderful Dutchman....a love I cannot express

The wonderful Dutchman's Family..... Our Dutch Dad Theo

My oldest friend Noel and his gorgeous Katie with baby bump; the now beautiful Esme

Lots of new arrivals....the love, joy and bliss they bring

A day at the races....My darling sister

My best Friend other gorgeous Bridesmaid... who cannot contain her happiness for us.... fun, happy and stunning...

...The one thing I have learned in this blur of wedding planning; it is a MUST to surround yourself with the ones you love...they will respect your choices, your ideas and your love.
Tell you when your being silly and hold your hand all the way....
Thank you
