When an amazing photographer such as Jiri Sipek offers to capture your rehearsal dinner as a bonus to the wedding pictures, you don’t say no! Especially, when your bridesmaids have surprised you with the dress of your dreams to wear to the rehearsal dinner.
Earrings (<– one of my bridesmaids gave these to me as a little present beforehand. They are emerald (clearly the theme of the wedding) earrings made by an ethical brand based out of Australia. I love these and wear them all the time!
Solemates (<– life saver when walking in heels on grass!)
What a stud muffin!
Getting ready to walk the aisle.
Eddie and our celebrant waiting patiently under this magnificent tree where we’d get married!
The best man and maid of honour all smiles!
My wedding planner, Sarah, was an absolute necessity and the best thing to ever happen to me whilst planning our wedding. She did absolutely anything and everything I needed including helping us time everyone’s walks so that I got up to Eddie at a specific point in the song. No pressure.
Starting with the jokes early and (clearly) thinking I’m funnier than I was.
Maybe I was funny after all?
After the rehearsal we had a few cocktails before dinner. My mum’s aunt brought a present with her from Scotland that we opened while waiting.
She got us our clan’s tartan in a tie for Eddie and a garter for me!
We, of course, put the right tie on for the occasion!
We felt so blessed to have these wonderful people by our sides the whole weekend.
Ladies, get you a guy who still has old fashioned manners!
Laughter was the theme of the weekend!
Cheers to the best day of our lives!
He may get fed up with me constantly preening him, but he really does love me with his whole heart.

A lovely evening (and the perfect excuse to continue consuming all the French wine we could!), the rehearsal and dinner were wonderful gatherings for family and friends in town for the big day. Stay tuned for wedding pictures! I’m so excited to show you how special our day was to us and what a fantastic job Jiri did capturing all the precious moments of the day.
