Wedding: Getting ready

Alright y'all, let's get the party started! I wanted to begin with our getting ready photos. For a girl, getting ready is one the funnest parts of the day! Having your main girls with you while you get all dolled up and pampered whilst sipping on champagne is always a highlight!

If I could offer one piece of advice for your wedding day, it would be to make sure you give yourself enough time to get ready.

Those little moments with the women in your life, will come to mean more to you than you ever imagined. So you don’t want to rush them. Family and friends were involved in every aspect of our wedding. We are so lucky to know such talented people. My long time friend Ashley did my hair and also one of my dearest friends Leo did my makeup. They did such an amazing job…I truly felt like a princess! 

I have to say that whole morning I was very calm. I honestly didn't really know how to feel. It was surreal! Our day was finally here. From the yummy breakfast to finally putting on my wedding dress and adding those final touches was such a beautiful day. I was ready to see my future husband for our first look!

A big thank you to my maid of honour Tez! I couldn't have done it without you! And, of course, a big thanks to my perfect family, especially to my stunning mum, for all the effort she put into our big day and always making me feel like a princess. I am so blessed to have you all in my life.

The Groomsmen's morning told by my husband, Jake:

Well... my day started out pretty cruisey really, a quick trip to the venue to cover off a couple of last minute jobs and a subsequent quick trip into town gave the best man and I time to catch up on the days plan. Having a sunset ceremony gave us boys the opportunity to take things slowly and prepare for the night of a lifetime. A casual lunch at The Red House Cafe with a beer or two followed by a quick game of beach cricket and a run around with the page boys set the tone for a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. After practicing my vows and running through the best mans speech the stereo went on as we showered and shaved. Next up was learning to tie a Trinity knot followed by a little gift my wife had sent to me via the photographer. A few minutes to gather my thoughts and one last look in the mirror before we packed the page boys into the car and headed off to meet Jess and the girls.

Next up, the first look!
