One Wedding…no Funerals!

For those of you who are regular readers, you’ll notice today’s post is later than usual, but know it’s because today/last night my step-daughter got married. Yep, one wedding and luckily, no funerals!

There are a few hundred photos just taken by me, the evil step-monster. I promise not to make you endure the family and guest pics but I did want to share some from the reception, which was lovely. There will be a few fashion shots of the step-monster (me) fitting into her dream dress later in the week.

So following are a few of my favourite wedding reception photos…enjoy.

Wedding Table Decorations

Wedding Table Decorations

Rustic Theme: The reception theme was rustic and I think the bride did a great job getting the rustic yet elegant feel to the room.

Bridal Bouquet

Bridal Bouquet: My step-daughter asked me to do the flowers. I was a fair bit nervous but I think I did okay for an amateur. I loved adding in the gum-nuts as an ode to Australia.

Reception Tables

The Room: I was really pleased with how lovely the reception venue looked. The groom made the easel at the door from some branches and it held a chalk-board that he made from old timber. It was used for the setting with each table added in with coloured chalk.

Spread With Love Bonbonniere

Bonbonniere: The little jars of jam were too adorable! They were made by the bride, her brother a chef, her sister and the brides mum. Aren’t they a clever lot?!

Bridal Party Table

Bridal Party Table: The bridal party were at the front of the room at a long table. The rest of the guests sat at round tables.

The Wedding Cake: I was lucky enough to go with the bride to select a cake. She and I both love Red Velvet Cake and the first bakery we went to made a beautiful red velvet so they got the gig. I think they did a great job creating the brides dream cake…and I ate every bite of my cake!

Wedding Car - Desoto

Wedding Car – Desoto

Wedding Car: The bride, The Fashion Mister, the Bride’s Mum and daughter all rode in this fire-engine red Desoto to the wedding and the bride and  groom rode in it to the reception. The bridesmaids and groomsmen came in a couple other vintage cars.

It was a great day, but I’m well glad that it’s over! I should sleep well now that I have shared photos from our one wedding and no funerals!
