Our Wedding Day

Hello All,

Thanks for all your support. I’m genuinely so surprised to see so many of you interested in my wedding, so to finish off the series here’s a recap of the wedding with lots of photos as promised.

Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations were so overwhelming. There’s so many options out there, and if I’m completely honest the prices are ridiculous. And then I stumbled across Teigan at some markets and just like that the invitations became easy! Teigan did an amazing job and the invitations were exactly what we wanted and were so affordable. She also helped me with Ben’s present, so let me know if you want to see that. Click the link to check out Teigan’s store, Hanging Willow.

Wedding Update: October 2017

Greetings to my lovely followers,

Thank you again for all your support. I get blown away by how many of you read these posts and check out my #bridediaries. The end of September and October has been a last minute scramble to tie up loose ends for the wedding. But its all coming together. By the time this posts goes live, we’ll be only a couple of weeks away from the big day, eek!

Bible Readings

Selecting the readings for our wedding has become surprisingly overwhelming. The priest gave us plenty of notice and said make sure you select your readings well and truly in advance. Well some how we’ve kinda left it to the last minute. We’ve finally selected our readings (one featured below) but I’m still trying to figure out the printing. Any tips on how to print it in a A5 booklet? I don’t want to pay for it as no one ever keeps them.

Love is Patient

Health and Fitness Update: October 2017

Hello lovely followers,

Before we get into it I wanted to say thank you for all your continued support. Today’s a bit of a different health update. It’s a hybrid between getting fit and wedding stress. I’ve contemplated whether I should do this post, but in the name of total disclosure I wanted to share my true feelings around my weight, body and overall appearance in the lead up to the wedding.

As some of you may have seen on my Insta Stories Series #BrideDiaries I’ve been struggling with my weight and I guess having body image issues. This whole wedding business has caused unnecessary stress. In October 2016 I tried on my wedding dress and loved it. Obviously the next step was all about loosing weight and toning. Fast forward to June 2017 and I realised I’ve put on 2 kilos which I know is not much at all. But then I saw that in June 2016 I was 5 kilos lighter which gave me the shits! On top of that my fat % had increased as well- not happy Jan!
