a few wedding snaps...

i'm not entirely sure why it's taken me so long... but here are a few snaps from our happy day.
well day one of our happy day. we broke up our wedding into a few parts. our ceremony, in our backyard in blackburn with immediate family and close friends in attendance, followed by a beautiful celebration lunch in north melbourne. this took place on our 11 year anniversary which was a tuesday.
we then followed up the small, intimate ceremony and lunch with a bit bigger celebration on the following saturday, with extended family and friends helping us to celebrate!

i'll share photos over a few posts i think... today starting with the ceremony.

the front yard of our house in blackburn the backyard of our house in blackburn, complete with wedding bunting blue 'reid' cycle bicycle with hanging chalkboard sign and gerbera pots in the front basket white alannah hill dress hanging on garage door bb getting his buttonhole flower arrangement pinned in place slipping into my dress with my mum on zipper duty bb and i standing at the altar in the sunshine artsy shot of the peony that fell out of my bouquet mid-way through the ceremony and our feet having a little kiss at the altar a confetti shower of rose petals, raining down as we stride down the aisle, newly married a gathering of our guests and us, post-ceremony an awesome group shot of us and our guests, zany style!

all of our photos were taken by the wonderful luke lornie. my hair on the wedding day was done by my long-time hairdresser sool and my makeup done by the lovely candice.
bb and i both bought our weddings threads off the rack. mine was from alannah hill and is a style i KNOW i will be able to wear again!

next up will be a few snaps from our post-ceremony lunch... stay tuned!

What a wonderful wedding. This is exactly how I want to get married - small, simple and beautiful back yard wedding. We have two children and have been together for 10 years! I adore your dress. Thanks for sharing your special day.
