One of the many careers that I think about going into is that of wedding planner. I love everything about weddings - the planning, the dreaming, the visioning, the excitement, the colours, the dresses, the flowers and of course the photography.... all of it. I think I could get married 20 times (always to Joel!) just to use all the wedding ideas I have.
This week I have the privilege of helping my dear sister in law prepare in the final days before her wedding on Saturday. We have been making names for the place settings, cones for the rose petals and deciding on all manner of last minute things. She is so very organised and has gorgeous taste in style and decor. All the family has been chipping in - dad has been doing some building (no details yet!), Andrew has been moving things and generally allowing himself to be bossed around, Joel is helping Andrew and preparing the service, message and legalities and mum has been doing sewing, driving, emotional support and everything in between.
This afternoon we are going location hunting for photography. Two of the spots we had chosen this time last year weren't burnt out in the February bush fires so we need to come up with something else. I'm starting to get a little nervous about being the photographer. I've had one dream before we came that I forgot to bring my camera... instead I've managed to bring two! I also bought my computer and external hard drive with for easy file transfer and back up. It would not be a good thing if I lost my sister in laws wedding photos! I think it will be ok but...
So, it's all fairly frenetic here but it's very exciting be a part of the preparations for one of the most important days in loved ones life. 3 sleeps to go!!!!!
