#31 Booked!

Big news. A fair bit of it really!

So firstly, we have officially (Finally - Thank goodness she has the patience of a saint) booked Karalee from Angelsmith Photography.
It took us SO long to get around to it, even though we pretty much decided as soon as we saw her work, & decided for certain when we met her way back in November :s
Thank goodness she didn't kick us to the kerb 'eh?
Thank you Karalee!

This weekend just past, we booked our venue.
This is hugely exciting, both because I was starting to feel fairly stressed that nothing ticked all the boxes & even at a compromise the dates were so filled up for next year...
Also, this venue, is the very first i looked at - fell in love with - but we thought we wouldn't be able to afford it.
Having gone over our guest list a few times since then, we didn't realise we had made enough changes to effect our ability to choose this venue until Mr N's parents heard of the place from someone else & re-suggested it...

We decided that it best not to delay given it's popularity so on the fantastic recommendations it has received & the mother outlaw having visited, We booked it.

So here it is, both our ceremony & reception venue - Glen Ewin Estate!

I don't want to give too much away about the decisions we make because I still want there to be suprises for our guests on the day, so I think one photo from afar will do ;)

We have decided to go with Glen Ewin's partner caterers, D&G Catering.
They seem very flexible & receptive to our ideas which is fantastic - because we have a few!
Looking forward to talking menus :)

Lastly, we have changed our wedding date.
It was a hard decision, given that the original date since was our anniversary & contained both our lucky numbers, but it wasn't available at Glen Ewin.
Also, our original date fell on a Sunday, which isn't the most practical for our interstate guests - of which there are a significant number - whereas now the date falls on a Friday which should be a lot easier for them & also makes it possible for them to get cheaper flights before the weekend begins.

So our new & final wedding date is : Friday 11th February 2011
Lots of my lucky number now! hehe

Annnyhow, in my excitement I have babbled on.
I'm just so relieved to have these things booked & not be feeling stressed about them anymore.
Back to all the fun stuff :)


  1. WOW it looks like a beautiful venue - I can see some beautiful photos being taken along that river and with what looks like a beautiful willow tree in the corner there!!

    11th sounds like a great date too - my fave number is 11 too!!

  2. I loves it. You should see how it looks from the other direction! It is a willow tree, there's a few lovely trees - although no fig trees...

    I was born 11th hour-11th day-11th month, so 11 is pretty lucky for me!
    But that aside, it is the best number ;)

  3. Safari couldn't open the link to glen ewin estate
    But it looks beautiful from the distant pic.
    I feel a tad under- dressed already!!..........C.....X

  4. Hehe, I just read the post properly. Saint? You flatter me, lol. Seriously, thank you. And it was no trouble. I could never kick you to the kerb. And moreover, I'm really really happy that you found the perfect spot...not to mention the fact that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Glen Ewin... x

  5. @ Ella - I suggest looking at it on Mr B or Miss R's computer so that you too can bask in it's wonderful glow ;)
    Under dressed? Jeepers little sister, don't say that - it is me signing off on your outfit after all! lol and ".........C.....X" huh? I think your name starts with an E little blossom?

    @Karalee - Not at all sunshine. Just calling it as I, as WE see it. And thank goodness for that! Because otherwise I'd be in a major stress right now trying to find someone who even held a candle to your talent my dear.
    I'm pretty excited to visit, and so glad you love it! :)
