It's about to be official, my mermaid sister will become my ACTUAL sister (in law, but whatevz) in just a couple of days. On the 21st of September she will walk down a grassy isle and say 'I do' to Dave's handsome brother.
I'll be standing right there beside her along with Amy and a couple of other lovely ladies. We'll be wearing vintage floral, worn leather and a touch of fur. Amazing wedding photographer Daniel Ferris will be there to capture the day from sun up until we party on down.
Of course a Hen's night provided the perfect precursor to the big day and we decided to kick hers off with a floral crown making workshop.
We had the most beautiful afternoon at The Octopus's Garden in Long Jetty, a hub for all things gritty and vintage. The Octopus's Garden is right next door to The Glass Onion Society* and together they, along with the many and varied vintage boutiques, make for the perfect ladies day. I mean hello, vintage stores, amazing coffee and flowers in abundance - I'd call that utopia, you?
If you'd like my unsolicited advice, get your gaggle together and go costal. You won't regret it.
*about 90 mins from sydney, well worth the easy drive.
