After discussions with the future hubby, as he wants to show a movie that he shot of us in Australia, we need to use a projector in the venue.  That's only going to happen if the room is dark.  For a lunch function, as the venue has no blinds, this is never going to ha...

We are still quite a long way out from the wedding and it's probably a little bit early to be planning the centrepieces and purchasing the bits and pieces that make it up, because that would mean that we need to store them for 5 months.  But when you see an opportunity...

We have finally cut our guest list down to 60 people.  Well, 60 adults, and we are hoping the babies and toddlers, all 15 of them, will just blend in.  As there are only 60 seats, we are not going to have allocated seating.  We are liking this concept as it will get pe...

Ok, so I love him and all, but after putting together a preliminary list of 41 people of his guests, after months of asking him to finalise it, he has added 13 people to the list.... noooooo! Including friends and partners, that takes us to over the castle venue limit...

As the costs keep stacking up to hold a wedding in a restaurant, we are pursuing a DIY wedding.  And this time in the grounds of a castle! 

Here is the castle, picturesque isn't it?

Here's a countdown to the wedding.  So 158 days to go.  Or 5 months.  It does sound...

Prior to our wedding I had purchased the prettiest shade of deep red, supposed, long-stay lipstick.  I had setting powder ready to be used and everything.  On the day of the wedding though, rushed to finish my make up, so that I could make it to the hairdresser on time...

Bombineres can seem like just another added cost but if you just let your wedding guide you naturally, you are likely to find something that can also double as wedding decor.  Choose something that you can also use as table decorations.  And mason jars, who can resist...

As a couple that didn't want to start our 'forever after' with a $15,000 to $30,000 bill for a wedding, we decided to ditch the normal running order of a wedding and to do something different yet still beautiful. 

Let's talk about the 'format' that a traditional wedding...
