The Wedding Files: Getting ready

We have so many happy memories from November 19. In the weeks after the wedding, I filled many pages of a new journal with all the little moments I could recall. I have a feeling we'll enjoy looking back on them in years to come.

But it's true, a picture speaks a thousand words, so here they are (with a few words here and there).

First up, getting ready with my family and my girlfriends...

I don't think I stopped smiling the whole day!

My girlfriends all have great style, so I asked them to find a navy knee length dress and let them go from there. We hadn’t seen the dresses all together until the morning of the wedding, but they were perfect. And it really is special to spend the morning of your wedding with your closest friends.

Aren't they beautiful?

I chose a one-shouldered lace wedding dress and I was so excited to finally wear it. I had to use every ounce of self-control not to try it on each day before the wedding. The girls got me into it, 42 buttons and all.

Yes, I was rather excited!

We had a lovely relaxed morning getting ready, took lots of photos and filled our faces with croissants and egg sandwiches (thanks mum!). I showed my dad my dress, put on my shoes and my parents and the girls prayed for me just before we left for the church. I was pretty eager to see Will and had to hang outside the church for a few minutes because we were so on time.

Next up: The ceremony


  1. Beautiful! If you have any pics of you wearing my flower at the reception I would love a digital copy :-) Looking forward to seeing the rest.

  2. Oh Ros, I was hoping to have a photo amongst the mix but unfortunately I don't :( Otherwise would have definitely sent it through! I kept my veil in for the day and then swapped it over for the flower for the evening. It was so pretty!
