5 Years

5 Years ago Today I got married to my lovely Husband. Since I have never posted pictures of my wedding on this blog before today seems an appropriate day to do it. We had a handmade wedding, I made my wedding dress, very non-traditional as you can see.

My Dad drove us to the wedding in his vintage Hilman.

Here is a shot of me in my wedding dress, It is an off white dress, with cut work, hand painted roses and lilies in aquas and pinks over a fuschia silk underdress, which gives the whole dress a light pink feel.Detail of the shoulder piece, my alternative to a veil. You can see the hand painting and cut work.
The drop waist seam of the dress had tiny little cut work lilies and roses on it.

Here is the beaded hair clip I made to match my dress. I also carried Stargazer Lilies.

My Mum and I made the bridesmaid dresses and My Mum and helpers did the flowers on the wedding day!
My Nana baked the wedding cake and my fantastic Mum decorated it.

Everyone got a little package of sweet Pea seeds as a wedding favour.

Finally my lovely Hubby, It has been a very Happy 5 years!


  1. Happy, happy anniversary! It's been lovely to learn about your unique wedding.

  2. I'm dumbfounded. The wedding dress is GORGEOUS! *screams*! Gaaah!

  8. Um...I'm stunned. What an amazing wedding. I love things like this where you can get an actual feel for the person, instead of it being like everyone else's. Your dress was beautiful. I am in awe of the work on it. And your Mom, she's quite a talented lady. Beautiful cake! Thanks for the inspiration!
