One Gorgeous Wedding...

The weekend saw some very good friends of mine getting hitched and my god was it a beautiful wedding and an even better celebration that followed! 
I originally met the couple through one of my besties at school, and I think it is an understatement to say that they were my saviors when I went to London and got very homesick. Many a good time has been shared with these two and I was absolutely overjoyed to see them so happy. 
The wedding was tailored to suit the couple with a bit of quirkiness added in which represents the two of them to a tee. Gorgeous poppies were the flower of choice (of course) and the rustic setting along with the good company made for a brilliant day. 
My fav part of the whole day was the exchanging of the rings, they were put on the third finger of the left hand, as the ancient Egyptians believed that the vein of love ran from this finger to the heart. I thought that was just beautiful! Anyway I will stop the yabbering and get to what you all probably want to see.... the photos. 

I was the back-up photographer for the day and I caught some GORGEOUS shots of the newlyweds!

I wish you both all the happiness in the world together!

Saturday Craft...

Today I got up early after some very hectic rain last night that kept waking me up... got dressed, thought about what to do today since boyfriend has gone to gone home to his parents to play footy (the obvious choice should have been homework... but hey, this looked like so much more fun!).... went outside and got SOAKED straight away... BUT i was on a mission: TO GET CREATIVE. 
I saw this gorgeous wall feature on Miss Mustard Seed's blog and I decided to use it as my inspiration. 

Step 1: Get resources. Well I only had to get one thing and I found it in an op shop this morning: I told the guy at the counter what I was planning to do and he was absolutely dumbfounded that all I was using was this one little book! 


Step 2: Figure out how to do it. Answer (as always) GLUE GUN!! 


So I assembled what I would be needing and got to work.


The finished product looks fantastic and maybe I will learn some maths in bed now! haha

Isn't it a pity...

Isn't it a pity that when you see those great shots you never have a camera handy? The other day I was driving quite early in the morn and the sun was shining behind the cathedral, but the top spires were still covered with fog.. if only i could have caught it on camera to share with you all! but instead I will share this little snap from a Sunday bbq a few weeks back:
