wedding day pictures – the preparations

It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.
{ Lucille Ball }

Here they are, pictures from my actual day wedding! Because there are so many I wanna share, I’m gonna split them into a few days’ worth of posts. For a start, these are from the early afternoon when the girls are getting ready for the groom and his unfortunate best man to arrive for the gatecrashing. Note, early afternoon. Mornings are really not for me.

you can't see them here, but there are little gemstones around the skirt.

I get really squeamish when it comes to make-up on the eyes... imagine that artful chunk I had on.

elsa's a stunner!

the pinwheel corsage I made for the girls, my mum has a more "grown-up" version. The guys and the musicians got little guitars for their boutonnières = ROCK n ROLL (pinwheels), ta-da my wedding theme!

I was alittle worried that my DIY hair fascinator isn't gonna work. I had no backups! But it did!

I'm partially resigned to the fact that the lines under my eyes are here to stay no matter how good the makeup artist is.

the weapon of torture

The porkfloss bun is my idea because I hate it that Stefan has it for breakfast almost EVERY morning! At least now, he remembers the wasabi first before he goes into BreadTalk and gets one of this again.

Ours is a 50s Rock and Roll wedding, but this is not the 50s era we're living in! Instead of the stereotype housewife who cooks and washes with perfectly primped hair and lipstick, this was a test for Stefan to demonstrate how good (-looking) a house husband should look like today. So one of the gate-crashing task he has to perform is to make a pretty apron out of these!

You do need a friend in life to help you figure out how to unclasp and secure those pesky bracelet clips

.. and another to help you reach places that you can't reach yourself.

Next up, the groom arrives!

You will want to see these next few pictures. Please come back again!
