We had some very exciting news this past weekend with one of our weddings featuring on Style me Pretty.
The best part was, the Bride and Groom of this particular wedding were my sister and brother in-law! This could not get any sweeter! Warning, some gushing may be coming.
Kate and Nick’s wedding was without a doubt one of the best days of my life. Kate is not just my only my sister but one of my closest friends. The wedding was in Launceston, Tasmania (where they live) at St Johns Cathedral and Quamby Estate and Ohhh my, what an absolutely stunning location for a wedding. The lovely and talented Deb from Boots Photography also traveled down and shot the wedding so I might just let the images speak for themselves. Of course, because its my sister I couldn’t possibly post less than a million photos but let me tell you, I cut it down a lot! Deb followed us around the day before as we rehearsed the ceremony and set up the reception. It was absolutely freezing weather the whole time (you can pick the Queenslanders with about 12 layers on) and I was actually quite sick but seeing my sisters face with that huge grin on it all day made me feel all warm and fuzzy so it didn’t matter.
Today I’m happy to show you some images from a reception last year at Botanical Cafe at Mt Coot-tha.
When Mellita came to me and suggested moss on her wedding tables my heart did a little jump. It was messy and damp and so much fun! We dragged bag after bag of moss into the cafe and poked all sorts of goodies into it. Books and old nic-nacs that she had collected sat amongst the greenery. I wish I could have been there to see the guest’s faces as they found their table and discovered each treasure hidden in the foliage!
The staff at Botanical Cafe were so helpful and let me put dirt and foliage all over the place!
The photos are fabulous because they were taken by Brisbane wedding photographer Deb Boots from Boots Photography. Just love when a bride tells me Deb will be photographing my wedding flowers!
This little mate gave me a big fright while setting up a wedding at the Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha last weekend! He ran out from under a table and proceeded to climb all over my tools and eat things he found in the moss and foliages.
Luckily my husband was there and came over when I let out a strange squeak, to assure me the lizzard was not going to eat me.
Don’t worry, before long we were great friends.
