First post in a long long time. I've been busy studying and working so haven't had much time for getting back in touch with crafts. But I'm making an attempt this year!
My sister had her wedding back in February and I decided it was a little bit of a waste to have all those photos on the computer and not to do anything with them. I've always wanted to try my hand at scrapbooking so I decided I'd make a 'Leading up to the wedding' scrapbook for her as a present. I'm off to Melbourne (where she lives) in 4 days so it's been completed just in time!
This photo was taken just as they had come back from Melbourne the fortnight before the wedding.
The invite, plus envelope, stamps and the brown papers is what was on the back of the invitation!
One of her hen's night tasks was the dj some songs, get a guy to take off his top and get 25 kisses from guys (photos horribly blurry in this shot)
Onto the Bridal Shower I hosted!
Recipes for the cupcakes, blini and parmesan crisps filled with avocado, lemon and chilli
One of the games was to make a dress out of toilet paper!
Mum made the bridesmaid dresses so I included some of the fabric in there (very difficult to attach!)
Their wedding cake, with seacow toppers (the groom lovessss seacows). Mum yet again made the three cakes (fruit cake, carrot cake and chocolate mud cake).
Before the wedding I took my sister and my English cousin (over for the wedding) out to Queenstown, a tourist mecca here in New Zealand, for a day. They went bungy jumping and we had a great time relaxing and shopping.
The last few days before the wedding involved my sister mowing the lawns, out at the beach and at the pub (yay!).
The rehearsal! This is one of the very first churches built in New Zealand. It used to be sheep yards but was restored 2 years ago.
The morning of the wedding
The car that my sister was taken up to the church in.
Married! The written bits to the sides are their vows
