Cocktail function - I've booked the Eltham Gateway Strada Room for our small cocktail function after the ceremony. They've just redone the decor and it looks amazing! We'll be getting a cocktail package with an open bar, and there are comfy couches in the far corner sitting next to a fireplace.
Wedding hair - I've decided to buy this hairpiece and am wanting to get my hair styled this way. The hairpiece is from Melbourne ebay store Glamour and Grace and was only $45 including postage, and is gorgeous!
This is the beautiful celebrant who will be marrying us in less than a year from now! I met Danielle at a wedding expo and she has such a bubbly personality I immediately decided she would be our celebrant. I recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly, bubbly, happy celebrant.
A Touch of Flash Photography - We have decided to hire Sean from A Touch of Flash. We met him at a wedding expo and he was great to talk to, has been fantastic in communication, and we're very excited to have him shooting our wedding!
Engagement shoot - So to make sure I looked all pretty for our engagement shoot I had my wedding hair and make-up trial early. The make-up looks fantastic, and so did the hair, but it was a windy day and the hair kept blowing into my face and was annoying me, so I decided to ditch the long curls and go for something a lot more elegant, the side bun of curls that's featured in the hairpiece photo... haven't done a trial for that yet, but would be really exciting to get one done!

Engagement lunch - instead of having a full engagement party we decided just to take our immediate families out to lunch. I decided to have a Toblerone cocktail. the photo is more for the drink than my new fiance
My engagement ring! An Emerald with 8 diamonds in the band underneath. Uniquely designed and created by Emil Braun in Melbourne. Pam is lovely to deal with, and we'll be getting our wedding bands made there as well!
This is the ring that I am basing my engagement ring design off of... I will be having an emerald as the centre stone, the setting will be platinum, and I'll be getting the diamonds set differently into the band... getting so excited to have my ring made! - June 20th, '13
This is the happy moment. my fiance and I were getting photos taken at Starshots Knox and at the end of the photoshoot he knelt down and asked me to marry him while the photographer got it all on camera (March
