THE wedding dress

The other night while in bed I received a wall post on facebook from a friend telling me that my wedding was featured in the current (winter 2012) edition of Queensland Brides magazine. I was surprised and excited as I didn't know they were going to feature our wedding! Our e-shoot was in the Spring 2011 edition which was amazing so to have our wedding and e-shoot featured is such an honour.

They wrote such lovely words too ... 
remember Peta and Pat from their amazing engagement shoot in our Spring 2011 issue? Well now they're married! Held at Murphy's Creek Escape, a bushland setting hald an hour from Toowoomba, the reception featured a silk-lined marquee lovingly styled by Peta with peices from her own enviable 'op shop' collection. We love the vibrant pops of colour (that rainbow cake!), vintage details, personal touches and the bride's superb Dolce&Gabbana frock.
The purpose of this post is not totally about the magazine ... it's about my dress.

One that I saw on net-a-porter and instantly fell in love with.
One that graced the runway and Miley Cyrus.
One that once I decided I wanted it to be THE dress, was sold out.
One that I added to my wishlist.
One that I was then contacted about to say there was one in stock.
One that was about three sizes bigger than I needed.
One that was at a greatly reduced price though.

I bit the bullet and bought it. Buying your wedding dress early does have some negatives though. You see other dresses and wonder if you have chosen the right dress. I now know that I did.
The alterations were carried out by an awesome local dressmaker and you would have never known it wasn't the correct size.
I adore this shot.

I'm spending the weekend with these girls dressed here by basque, asos and cooper st.

all images by the amazing ckmetro photos!
Speaking of Miley, I am in love with this live performance with her dad. He's much better than achy, breaky heart. 
I also have to admit that I could easily sit down and watch a Hannah Montana marathon. However lame the jokes are there is just something addictive about the show!

have a fabulous weekend and remember, i love your comments!
