A Celebration of Love (and colour)

Tutti, the Guru, Matty, Marnie and I went to a wedding yesterday. It was truly lovely – a celebration of life and love and a brilliant excuse to get dressed up. (Not that one ever truly needs an excuse for that. Wear your best frock to the shops to buy milk, I say. Not that I do. I went out with Marnie the other day looking horrible. “At least put some lipstick on,” said Tutti, kindly ignoring the brooch of baby vomit on my T-shirt and my hair which looked at best like a curly, fluffy hair-nest, just waiting for a sparrow to take up residence.)

Anyway. We did what anyone does at a wedding. We danced and laughed and ate things and cooed over the bride who was wearing a sparkly, almost-60s-style shift dress and looked absolutely divine. In short? We had fun. But then, we almost always do.

Here I am with my beloved Matty, wearing my Francis Klein glasses, outfit by Et Al Melbourne and flower corsage that I found in Tutti’s wardrobe (score!) Matty’s wearing his beautiful Clifford Gordon jacket that he last wore five years ago when we got married and skinny pants by ML Denim.

What can I say about Tutti except that she is always a colourful feast for the eyes. I recently bought her that jacket from an op shop in Melbourne for the princely sum of $12 and yet it looks a million bucks.. Love her Miu Miu glasses, Alistair Trung skirt and bright sandals by Django & Juliet.

Tutti the beauty.

Giving good shoulder.

The Guru and Tutti. I had probably just said something HILARIOUS.

I art directed this shot. “Look romantic,” I said.

Even Marnie got in on the action, partying the night away. Well, until 10pm. Which is pretty rock’n’roll for a baby.

Here are Tutti and Matty standing in front of a chalkboard of random words. #catatonic!

Looking alert and economic. Apparently.

The couple of the moment. Nathan and Elly. Wishing them a lifetime of health, happiness, laughter and all good things. It’s a bit of a photographic fail from an iPhone point of view, but you get the gist. They looked gorgeous.

What we wore to my wedding…

Dear Reader,

I wanted to tell you the story of my wedding day today – of how my incredibly talented sister Fluffy was our couturier, designing and making my wedding dress and Tutti’s dress, and her bridesmaid dress (and a dress for my superfluous crazy-bridesmaid – who not only insisted on walking first up the aisle because she was worried Fluffy’s Amazonian stature would block her out of the wedding photos, but also decided she wasn’t getting enough attention at the reception – so started breakdancing).

But I have had such a busy week that I don’t have the time. So what I will do, is leave you with a little glimpse into what we wore on this truly fun and fabulous day.

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend! x

And for once, not making a face at the camera that makes me look completely special.
