I was really hoping to be the bride who had time to take photos of the event room we decorated as we went along - but decorating a room for the wedding is hard work and stressful - and when I wasn't busy hanging ribbons, fairy lights and putting pom poms everywhere - I was drinking tea (thanks Mums) to keep me going and sane. I did however manage to get some photos of the event room after the wedding just before we cleaned everything out properly and I'm actually really happy about that.
Gosh I loved that room! I was just so pleased that all our ideas worked and everything came together so perfectly. It took us a whole day to string the ribbons and fairy lights and then another day to move everything else in and sort it all out but once it was up I couldn't stop staring or smiling at how perfect it was - better than I even imagined (and I studied Interior Design peeps and drew it all up in 3D before hand).
So having that time alone in the space, to remember, to cherish it and to fix it in my memory with photos was really important to me. I couldn't believe then that it had happened, that it went so well and just like that it was over - and I still can't really believe it now.
These photos are also making me super excited about getting our professional photographers photos back as well, woohoo!
p.s. These are some of the first colour negatives I've scanned - it was tougher than I imagined compared to the black and white but I think I'm happy with most of the results - enough to share them here at least! (Some are a bit yellow? I don't know why they but were worse before I edited them but thats probably another post in itself!)
