Happily Ever After

WELL the big day has come and gone and I am happy to report all went according to plan.
There were, however a few stressful moments especially during the lead up to the big day and some family members including "Chief" thought I was slowly losing it.
But who could blame me with last minute RSVPs, changes in seating arrangements and crumbling centre pieces adding to the nightmare, I really thought it was the end of the world!I know, I know there I go again with all the drama.

With two weeks to go my Portuguese relatives also arrived just in time for the Hen’s day and Bridal shower festivities both of which from all accounts – rocked!
And though everyone did warn me the day would fly it wasn’t until it arrived that I realised they weren’t exaggerating.
It did in fact disappear right before my very eyes, quicker than I’d ever imagined.
On the morning of the blessed day having slept just three hours, not only did I feel and look like a zombie but one who’d just completed a stint on Survivor Vanuatu considering my diet over the last few weeks consisted of chick peas and lettuce leaves – mmm yummy!
My hairdresser and make-up artist worked their magic transforming us into the Goddesses I had envisioned and just like that everything fell into place and the drama – gone!

The ceremony provided our guests with many laughs especially during the exchanging of the rings.
And our fabulous photographer Percy worked like a Trojan providing us with memories that will certainly last a lifetime.
The reception was captured on film (much to the horror of many who have since seen the evidence). Billy Jean break out moves were all the rage with most of my guests jammed onto the dancefloor thanks to the awesome tunes provided by the very entertaining DJ Phil Webb.
And my gorgeous Madhatter cake, yes did I mention it was gorgeous was gushed over all night - thanks Julia!

Two months of wedded bliss later (yes this post is way overdue) Ari & I are still hearing comments like "that was the best wedding" and "we had so much fun" from all who attended.
A wedding is a stressful yet wonderful occasion and something you only hope to do once.
I would recommend all brides-to-be get a fantastic support network behind them to make their day just as special.
That's all from me and to all brides-to-be I wish you all the best for your big day!

From here on in I'm posting on all things food, fashion, footy oh and maybe some marital bliss - I'll keep ya posted!
