Hello and happy Friday everyone,
Today is a bit of a special blog. We are introducing the newest member to The Shearing Shed family.
We are excited to welcome Adam Beckett as the newest head chef.
Adam is a much loved husband to Tara and a father of 2 beautiful girls Dottie and Hermione.
Not to forget the cats too Rupert, Rosie and Jim.
I can't wait to tell you all about Adam and his journey.
Now may we address the elephant in the room, hire a bloody stylist please!!
Unless you want the bare minimal that can easily be done by yourself on the morning of your wedding, we strongly suggest hiring a stylist because they are worth their weight in gold!!
Most couples try and save money where they can so they think if we do it ourselves, then we just lay it out we don't have to pay someone for their time we will just rely on our friends and family to do it for us for nothing.
I completely understand saving money is super important because as soon as you say wedding the price sky rockets.
Lets have a chat about the pros and cons of hiring a stylist or doing it yourselves.
When getting hitched in a destination that isn't your home why not make a weekend out of it!?
There are so many epic locations on our beautiful Island. You can split the cost of a 10 bedroom air bnb with some friends or family or there are plenty of options for hotels.
I will list them down below so you have an idea of what is available.
When it comes to style within our venue, the options are endless. I thought it would be a good idea to show you the different ideas you can go with.
You can dress the venue any way you like. Breach out, be bold, be different!
We love it when couples steer clear of what a wedding is supposed to be like and go with what is important to them as a couple. Who wants a wedding that looks like the same cookie cutter wedding as the couple before hand!? Not me sis!
Despite the pandemic throwing a few spanners in the works for Bianca and Shaun, they managed to pull off the most incredible wedding day in January.
Their original date was in October but the ol rona had other plans for the couple.
Bianca and Shaun were obviously pretty upset about not being able to go ahead with their original date but in saying that they were super chill with re organizing a new date. They were a super understanding dream boat couple to deal with amongst 2020's shit show of a year!
Now I know when wedding planning it can be easy to be swept up in the excitement of it all, scrolling through all these epic pinterest boards & Instagram feeds but just remember the good old wedding budget is looming above you (unfortunately haha)
I totally get it when you want absolutely everything glitzy glam for your special day but the bane of couples existence is the bloody budget.
Have a think to yourself, What will fit into your budget? What are the most important parts to include in your special day? Do we really need 100+ people?
Dealing with dollars can become extremely overwhelming so here is a little helping hand to try nut out how to keep costs down.
So you have been invited to a wedding, how exciting!! Now it is time to think of the kind words to put in your wedding card for the couple. I don't know about you guys but I am notorious for writing simple emotionless cards haha.
I feel like it is super common so I thought it would be good to touch base on a few cute ideas for a more creative card!
So you have your wife/hubby to be ready to go, an amazing pinterest board with all this inspiration, possibly you have your date & venue now it's time to create the absolute A team.
You want the suppliers you choose be easy to work with. You want to literally trust them with your wedding so you can relax & enjoy!
Here are a few little pointers to help you with the process.
Hello lovely people, today I wanted to talk about the importance of the maid of honor & also the responsibilities that come along with it.
When selecting your maid of honor it should be someone you trust immensely, also someone who knows you extremely well & someone who can bring you back down to earth if you're having a moment. They are going to be your right hand girl when those wedding responsibilities get too much for you to handle for whatever reason.
Being selected as the maid of honor is such an exciting moment, the bride willing to put full faith in you for all your help behind the scenes. Your maid of honor needs to be a good worker, be able to accept challenges head on, the mood booster, emotional baggage handler and most of all the most a big ball of good energy. Sounds complicated right!?
Although this can seem like quite the challenging task I will talk you through a few important steps to put your mind at ease.
