australia 2010: the wedding part one!!

we're facing a little house hunting angst which is making me a little blue. i think i'll keep my rant under wraps and locked up for friends only, lest i offend anyone with my self-righteous "we work too bloody hard to not be able to afford a decent house". BUT before i start throwing a hissy fit, leg stomping and all, lets talk about happier things like weddings!! and flowers and chapels. and all that good stuff...

david & molly's chapel. it was the cutest chapel. reminds me a little of church of scared heart on tank road in singapore. very intimate with ornate pews and dramatic colours! we were here the day before to set up the flowers. and before you start pointing like a wedding nazi that  the pomanders on the pew are of assorted colour... here's a little nugget of information that makes the WHOLE things even more charming.

see the gorgeously luscious altar flowers at the front of the church, they were self assembled, made from someone's flowers in their backyard. AMAAAAZING, innit? the entire thing was a wedding gift from a family friend. every bit of the wedding-critic in me melted away when i learnt of that. i meant, i'd pick that over our perfectly assembled million dollar wedding any day. and the multi-coloured pomanders? blood and tears from the night before! us wedding elves went through 1000 roses, hand picked by molly from someone's garden just two days ago. it was so sweet and personal! didn't matter that it was mixed colours. seriously though, isn't that the bomb?

HAD to show off this cute one. this one is made by my own husband. while the boys were all "say what? make flowers? thats so gay!!" when alli, molly's mum and wedding planner, said rose pomanders, daniel gave a better definition than wikipedia could have, rolled up his sleeves and started helping, without a peep!!! so so proud. *tear* this would have totally made my boss proud!

WOW, this is totally helping! im almost not thinking of the exorbitent property prices in singapore already! :) cool!

groom (and bestman) awaiting...
