I thought I’d give you a peek at of some of the layouts in our album, and then a re-imagined insight below. I am so thankful that we invested in a beautiful Queensberry album. It gives me so much comfort to know that our favourite wedding photographs are contained in this special book, and not stuck on a DVD somewhere. I know this will be passed down through our family for hopefully many generations!
I have amazing memories of our special day, and truth be told…I wouldn’t change many things. Apart from nearly 4 hours of car travel! As I mentioned in the first post, I didn’t have much experience with weddings in 2008 when we got married…fast forward 5 years and I have been to, and photographed, hundreds of weddings! So here’s a glimpse of what I would plan now.
As I mentioned in the first post of this series, I would have all the celebrations at my parents property. I absolutely adore Lavender so it would be featuring strongly. I always think it’s nice to have a smell that reminds you of your wedding day, whether it’s a certain type of flower, or a new perfume.
I loved that we had a marquee. There are so many things you can do with a marquee, to make it completely unique. Set in a beautiful backdrop always helps too. I still love my wedding dress. It was made especially for me by a dressmaker in Remuera, Auckland. The only thing I think I would change is the fabric, to make it more floaty and have more room to breathe! I just adore these gorgeous Kate Spade shoes. More lavender….and lavender Ice Cream!! I love these veils. There is something so dreamy and romantic about them, and the lace border is gorgeous.
