STILLS: A WEEKLY COLLECTION {the week before the wedding}
























1. After writing this post I flaked and paid to have my house cleaned. Its a luxury I used to indulge in weekly but as our family grows, so do our expenses - so it's a treat we can seldom afford at present. Needless to say, after a day at my mum's place I returned home to find it sparkling and this lovely bunch of lilies atop of the kitchen table.

2. Breakfast and our banged up, stained table top.

3. Upon their ritualistic egg collection, Zeph and Dave found this miniature among the pile.

4. A little lady's outfit for a very special day. I can't wait to share some photo's with you later in the week but if you want a sneak peak of the bride and groom head over to my facebook page or, even better Daniel Ferris Photography, for a squiz at his stunning photographs (if they're not up now, they will be soon).

5. At the front door.

6. Fresh Australian wildflowers in salvaged vintage bottles accompanied by napkins made from vintage linen. Just a very small sample of Nicole's immaculate vision for her wedding.

7. The Bride and her maids during Operation Set Up for the big day. Over the coming days I'll share a few more images from our fun filled weekend and the celebration that was the marriage of Brendan to Nicole.

but for now, we sleep.

    1. I was thinking the same thing, she looks gorgeous! I have been following the blog for a little while now. As a mother ofa young brood I can relate to a lot of what Emily gets up to. Of course, she does it with some awesome style that I aspire to.

  4. Oh never apologise for hiring a cleaner, I I too occasionally hold my hands up and call in the professionals ( we used to have a fortnightly cleaner and now don't to as well) It's my favourite gift to myself and my children as I'm a less stressed Mama!! What lovely stills this week! Here's to preschool holidays! Aaaargh! Just kidding

  16. Your pictures make me smile :)
    I absolutely love your console table and have been looking everywhere for one. when I find one I really like most peeps say it was a lucky ebay find. Pls tell me yours is from a shop :)
    When I finally start back at work my first indulgent purchase will be a cleaner.
