My sister’s wedding

2 October, 2010

My sister got married yesterday (which is why the desktop isn’t up yet, sorry!) so I want to share some photos with you. Where my wedding was more unconventional in its styling, Michelle and Jordan’s wedding was more traditional with the big white dress and veil as well as dark suits for the groom and his men. Lemme just wack the photos up so I don’t bore you :P

Collage of four photos, clockwise from left: Four girls all standing or sitting getting their hair done; macro photo of pink ruffle detail; a fancy fame, and some hair clips sitting on the table; macro photo of the bridal bouquet consisting of white and pink flowers.
Collage of four photos, clockwise from left: Michelle in her big white strapless wedding dress with looong veil standing with Mum and Dad; Michelle turning around with a shocked look on her face; the groomsmen, groom and MC standing around under a tree wearing smart dark suits, photo of the leaf strewn muddy ground with petals scattered around.
Collage of three photos, clockwise from top: Panoramic photo of the bridal party arriving, hedges block a little of the view; Michelle walking down the aisle with Dad, arms interlinked; Jordan (the groom) looking at the arriving party and smiling.
Collage of five photos, clockwise from left: Photo of the bottoms of the bride's white dress and veil, and the bridesmaids' pink and white ombre dresses, Michelle and Jordan holding hands facing each other with the celebrant (my godmother!) standing in front of them; Michelle in front of the Storey Bridge; the bride and groom standing against the Brisbane River and buildings in the CBD; the bride and groom signing the papers with the bridal party standing behind them.
Collage of five photos, clockwise from left: Michelle wearing Groucho Marx glasses with the fuzzy eyebrows and moustache; me wearing Micky Mouse ears; Misho, one of the bridesmaids, dancing with my brother Sam; Michelle and Jordan cutting their cake; the couple dancing the bridal waltz.
Collage of four photos, clockwise from left: Full outfit photo of me wearing a shiny black dress and bolero, black shoes with an ankle strap, and a black clutch; with Nick; head and shoulders photo of me, my hair and make up were done professionally and my hair is curly, my eyes are dark with bronze while my lips are nude; and close up of my nails painted pale pink with pink bows on the tip, I've got a chunky black ring with blue accents and a rhinestone.
Of course you want to know what I wore, am I right? Here are the details:
Dress: Collection from Myer (Thank you to Kiki for sending it to me!)
Bolero: City Chic
Shoes: Evans
Necklace and clutch: borrowed from Mum
Bracelets: City Chic
Rings: City Chic and Evans
Nails: MOI!

If foot agony is the measure of a good night let’s just say Michelle and Jordan’s reception scored off the charts and required an ice bath followed by a warm water bath (and many tears.) There are so many more photos I wanted to share but I didn’t want to bombard you with my (potentially boring) family stuff, but I really wanted to blog about this happy occasion!

I’ll endeavour to get the desktop up tomorrow, but ALSO! I got my Beth Ditto stuff from Evans finally… I haven’t had a second to try the polka dot dress, silver mary-janes or the grey skirt on yet, but I LOVE the drapey black t-shirt. I can’t even describe it.
