As you all know by now, our wedding planning is in full swing.
I am on a countdown!
First things first. Find a photographer! Now, this wasn’t hard… she is someone I have been following for years now, and luckily my fiance loves her work just as much as I do!
Second thing on my list… Set a date and find a venue. (TICK!)
(You should all know, that before we signed our contract with our venue, I made sure that the our chosen photographer was free, because we would have gone so far as to change our date if she wasn’t!) That’s just how much we wanted her! 🙂
Now… almost every girl grows up with dreams about how her wedding will be…
Some dream of having a grand, lavish, giant celebration, with a horse and carriage and fireworks. And lets be honest, these types of weddings are absolutely fantastic! Especially the party! But we are planning something slightly more intimate <3 And just because it’s small, that doesn’t mean it won’t be beautiful.
My dream, has always been to have flowers… everywhere… to bring the outside inside! (Minus the bugs!) But after looking at the pricing of wedding flowers I gave myself quite the shock. And realised that what I envisioned wasn’t going to be possible…. unless I started to grow some flowers myself… I also envisioned that our wedding would be very ‘DIY’ so this fit in perfectly.
So we planted some seeds. Well… quite a lot of seeds actually. My Mum has been busy growing and experimenting too! And we have since been watching them grow. It’s a really rewarding thing, and we have since become really into gardening (Martin has even grown his own chillies this year!) I will upload photographs of this too, as he is pretty proud of them…
Back to the flowers!!
There were some failures on my part… (Gypsophila is so difficult to grow!!)
BUT here is my first success. They are called Nigella. And oh my GOSH are they beautiful… their seeds were no bigger than a grain of sand and they survived frosts, downpours, storms, heat waves…. they are pretty resilient! And I can’t wait to include them in our wedding flowers, and be proud that we grew them ourselves.
