I was in Newmarket, Auckland on Friday for the first meeting with my wedding dress designer! I was so nervous, but Wendys talent shines through instantly and she easily smoothed out all the design queries and ticked all the boxes for the elements I wanted. I’m really looking forward to visiting the workshop next month for my calico fitting! It was a bit of a sad day weather wise though, with the rain nearly causing me to be stressfully late, but as I was racing along the footpath to my meeting, I noticed one lonely little magnolia tree at the end of Broadway. And on one of its naked branches there was a gigantic, solitary bloom. Such a cheery, pop of colour on a grey drizzly day – beautiful! Tonights inspiration board is all about the possibilities of a spring wedding – magnolia wreaths (!), blossoms and of course, pink.
