Handmade with Love...






The beautiful view of "Balmoral Plantation"

The Shed draped in fabric..

Well the wedding was wonderful and we had a great time as expected. The wedding and reception was held at the couples macadamia farm "Balmoral Plantation". With such beautiful wide and green sweeping views of the valley below it was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony. Later the reception was held further down in the valley, in the shed. Yes the shed! I was so impressed - it really is amazing what you can do with 2km of white fabric! And speaking of fabric I wanted to show you my dress that I made for the wedding. It is kind of special to me because it is actually (one of) the tablecloths we used for our very own wedding and it was a cinch to sew, even for me! I folded over the top, dyed it my favourite colour (coral/apricot) and added a brooch for a better style and fit. So what do you think?
