Lottie has taken some absolutely stunning pictures, and I particularly love the pictures of Lucy. I have many favourites, including the pictures near the end of the portfolio of me and all the school mums follwed by one of all Lucy's school friends. It's really cute.

Everyone loved them, and the registrar held them up during the ceremony and was showing everyone how beautiful they are. I know that Lottie has taken some beautiful photos of them and can't wait to show them to you.
That's it for wedding news today, can't wait to show you more next time.
Well, here we are...just 4 days to go until my big day - can you believe how fast the time has flown? I have to apologise for not getting round to reading everyone's blogs for the last two weeks (I promise to catch up) but with Lucy on Summer holidays my time has been much limited for computer stuff. I promised some sneaky peek previews of the wedding, so I'm going to send you all on a small internet tour.
So there you go, in 4 days time I will be Mrs Irwin and I couldn't be happier. Have a fabulously craft-filled fortnight and I can't wait to share my special day with all of you (advanced warning, I'm planning on including LOTS of pictures).
Good afternoon everyone, welcome to another Handmade Monday.
I'm sorry that I didn't manage to get round to reading any blogs last week, as you can imagine having Lucy home full time during the Summer holiday is using up all my time and energy, especially with wedding plans still to be made. So I thought I'd share a couple of pictures with you...
Next week I'm planning on showing you little glimpses into some of my wedding plans - only 11 days to go!
So what have I been up to this week? Well lots of sorting and purchasing items for the wedding (19 days to go - not that I'm counting) I did stumble at one point this week when I couldn't decide what to do with my hair or what to put in it. I love social media and facebook - I assembled a party of 6 friends that know me from different places and gave them 4 suggestions for items I was considering purchasing. It was so great to be able to get so many opinions in such a short space of time, especially given that there was, at the beginning of this week, little more than 3 weeks for the purchase to be completed.
I've chosen a beautiful handmade item for my hair - but I'm going to keep you all in suspense and not show it until the big day. I'll give you a hint though, it features the colours white and emerald and fits beautifully with our loose 'theme'

Welcome to Handmade Monday, a friendly craft and creative linky party packed to the rafters with exciting and interesting blogs.
If you are new to us, let me extend you a warm welcome, we have very few rules which can be read here, but you don't need to have your own blog to join in with the reading.
With just six weeks to go, there's been a small flurry of wedding related activity this week. I made and posted the last batch of invites and have spent a lot of time mooching through the internet and pinterest for inspiration.
So, the plan was to purchase lots of silk flowers and vines to decorate the reception tables and the archway, when all of a sudden, my facebook feed showed me this...
My train of thought went like this..."origami...made with paper...I have lots and lots of paper....I could try and make some flowers" then I scurried off to the internet and found some fabulous instructions to try. I have to say to Jenny that I will be buying on of her kits later in the year, but it was an amazing inspiration at just the right moment for me.
So, not exactly a walk in the park and not very impressive either, and then I stumpled upon these instructions for a lotus flower.
Well there you have it, that's me this week, I'm looking forward to seeing what you've all been doing.
Welcome to another Handmade Monday, the friendliest crafty blog hop on the internet. Anyone can join in as long as you abide by our few simple rules (which can be read here) but the shortened version is you can link up to two pages from your blog as long as they are craft or creative based. We love it when you comment, but we won't be cross if you don't.
This week I start with an enormous and heartfelt thank you to everyone for your congratulations on my forthcoming wedding. I replied to all of you, but I just wanted to highlight a couple of comments that had me giggling lots! The first is from the lovely Jenny at Jennysis
So many congratulations honey!!
I only wish I could hire a dragon! but I'm definitely going along the lots of flowers theme (albeit silk flowers) Also Auntie Shan was very prophetic...
WOOHOO!! CONGRATS, SWEETIE!! :-D
Having looked at the dress Lucy bought months ago, I discovered that the very visible lining was slightly more neon than I first thought, so we went dress shopping this week, where she discovered a very lovely but very plain yellow cotton dress which she was desperate to have, so we compromised on having that one for the party and one of the beautiful ivory gowns that we saw!
Next week I shall show you some more of the wedding preparations, but that's all from me this week. I hope you all have a fabulously crafty week.
