My Dream Wedding Inspiration • Ang T

Today I marry best friend, the one I laugh with, live for and love...

7 years ago today I married the man of my dreams, and yes 7 years on he's still the man of my dreams and just as perfect as the day we got married! We got married in a vineyard in West Melton just out of Christchurch, on a day filled with love and laughter, family and friends and wonderful memories!

Would I change anything about my day... um if I'm honest, yes because it's now 2013!, but what I would change are the things that aren't so important 7 years on... I would have coloured shoes and some lace, and I wouldn't (well try not to!) stress about making sure everything went 100% perfect on the day (ok so that's the utter control freak coming out in me!) and sometimes little things just, well, happen!  But what I wouldn't change is the most important - the people and the memories, our beautiful family and friends who shared the day with us, they are what made our day so so so very special - from my Mum and Dad walking me up the aisle to the amazing voice of a fabulous jazz singer, to seeing my gorgeous hubby and his tears (sorry Phil!) and the 'dashing' bridesmaids, my wonderful family and friends getting together and having a blast, my (previous) boss with a napkin tied around her head pretending to ride a horse, the surprise in a box (you really have to ask Ang B about that one) and the ever-present caterpillar on the dance floor - all of that made our day exactly what it was... perfect.  

And because I can't help giving more wedding advice, there is one little piece I must give to you; get a videographer. My boss (see above!) once told me it is the most important thing you can get done on your wedding day, not only because along with fabulous images it can capture the feeling, emotion and fun memories of your special day, but also that things change over the years, sadly people go and to have a record of them and how much they loved your big day is so special - I know that sounds a little sad for such a happy occasion, but oh my gosh she was so right! We will treasure the film of our day forever.  

So as part of our anniversary month, Ang and I set the challenge to create our dream wedding inspiration boards - check out Ang B's gorgeous board here. Now Ang told me this was the hardest ever inspiration board to do, and she was right! I picked two pairs of shoes, two cakes and two different bridesmaids dresses along with three wedding dresses (from three different designers) that I wanted little bits from each! Because I couldn't show you them all, I've picked the ones that show you the most about how I'd love my big day to look (maybe a 10 year vowel renewal is on the cards!) - my dress would be a take on this amazing Lazaro creation, I would have it custom made by one of our fabulous NZ designers and add in some lace and beading and the bridesmaids would be in gorgeous beaded and sequined cocktail dresses that they could wear again in colours of deep blue and gold. I would have some classic invitations with a twist like these amazing angel wings from that gorgeous image by Auckland based photographer Danelle Bohane and there of course would be fabulous food, cocktails and Veuve Clicquot. There would be lots of glamour and outside dining in a vineyard (that gorgeous table setting reminds me of the wonderful Blackbarn Vineyard in the Hawkes Bay) and I would ensure there are lots of sparklers and beautiful paper lanterns to light the night sky, making a perfect end to a perfect day for everyone who attended.  

Happy anniversary baby, I wouldn't be the same without you xx
