When we last discussed my little vintage wedding, I left you with the cake and some charming music. At this point in the day, we made sure that our guests had enough food, drink and entertainment to enjoy themselves as my new husband and I took some photos. There was a moon piñata for the kids, lawn games, picnic blankets and lots of time to chat, mingle and enjoy themselves. Our wedding photographer, Mel Silva, and her friend Norman were our photographers who were such a dream to work with and it was a pleasure to spend an hour or so with them taking some photos.
We started with some family photos. I was a bit sad that my brother couldn’t have made it to my wedding due to Covid but I know he was watching the live stream which made him present on the day.
And then some with the bridal party; we didn’t wonder too far as we were worried about light but we did get a few snaps with everyone. I did have a mini panic around this time as we were losing light and there was still so much that needed to be photographed. I kept having my veil yanked out of my hair and my tiara would not sit straight so it was a constant pain to fix everything up. I kept asking for help but after a while it just started falling on deaf ears and I got a bit overwhelmed. I couldn’t fluff my dress on my own or fix my veil so I think I was more flustered than I would have liked.
One of my favourite photo places was on the Paper Moon that my Dad and I built over a couple of months which was painted by my maid of honour, Reenie. As I said in many wedding blogs, I love Paper Moons and always dreamed of one at my wedding so building it was a labour of love. I do plan on posting a bit of a tutorial/crafting process of the moon so keep an eye out for that.
By this stage in the day, a fair amount of cloud cover was coming in so we started losing the light. We left our bridal party with the guests and went for a walk to take a few last photos. We did a few more photos around the property and then decided to shoot in a nearby field. The lighting was so stunning and they are some of my favourite photos from the whole day.
After all this, we were at least half an hour late to our reception so I was whisked away back into my bridal room. I quickly freshened myself up, Michelle from Cherrybomb wrangled my hair into submission and I was put into my party dress which was a dream come true. I’ll see you at the party/in the next instalment of my big fat vintage wedding.
