after the ceremony, we had some fancy shots snapped (which i might share another day...) and met all of our guests for lunch at mr price's food store.
it was the perfect place for our post-ceremony lunching. warm and cosy and comfortable, with delicious food and fabulous service!
i wanted to do a little something to thank our guests for coming along, and in true nicole style, it had to feature a little hand-made, or in this case, a lot hand-made!
i mentioned that i worked on some screen printing at the craft session last year in an earlier post, but this was my main reason for wanting to do that workshop!
i screenprinted panels with our initials and a heart, and then whipped them up into bags for everyone.
i also got busy with some wool and a hook and crocheted up some little amigurumi star wars characters (using the patterns from this book) too! they went into the bags along with a wee jar of strawberry compote.
those few projects kept me very busy in the few weeks before the wedding, and as i wanted them to be a surprise for everyone attending, those closest to us couldn't work out why i was so stressed ha ha!
so that's day one pretty much shared... there's still day two to go to!
i'm really enjoying the process of going back through these photos are reliving the memories. so much fun!
the same as yesterday, all shots in this post were taken by our ace wedding photographer luke.
