Oh wow, this thread has been so quite the few weeks, so happy to see it pick up again :lol: Dang xmas & being crazy busy!!

Ktloo, i looked @ Renee and whilst her pics are amazing her price was heaps more than we wanted to spend. For the same price we could have had Luke Gow - and he is the best on offer in Newcastle. Oh & you need to start planning woman! Gosh, i cant wait to see what you come up with lol. :mrgreen: Do you have any ideas or plans or anything? I'm just starting to look in colors and designs at the moment, i think I'm trying to come up with a theme.

morethantacos welcome, your name makes me laugh ... mmmm tacos!! :P Welcome!!

elle_jay i know i know! I thought i would know exactly what i wanted but now i have no idea! I think because it seems so far away i find it hard to plan IYKWIM i think once it's 09 and i can say our wedding is this year it might kick my little bum into gear! I might have a look at luke gow, i dont mind the price as long as i know im getting great photos :)( anyone know roughly how much?) I'm also thinking D&V photography i had some shots done with them when they first started portraits and my friend was the make up artist, ( im still on there website 3 years later lol) and they turned out great. Is anyone getting a theres filmed?

I have heard that Luke Gow is quite flexible with his packages, His pics are great.

oh elle_jay im so sorry. I'm thinking about not having a Father daughter dance. I'm trying to remember if dad had one with my sister. i think Fh will be the first one on the dance floor. ( i put on our wedding song the other night and he was sitting on the lounge and got up and said would you like to dance haha he's too cute)
I love the Dean's version too!
Tommorow its 365 days till we get married woo hoo! I think its finally starting to sink in that im getting married.
Just adding a little rant in here. FSIL asked FH the other day if he felt "pressured into asking me to marry him because everyone else was doing it" and then she said " you still don't have to go through with it" Firstly im the first out of all our friends to get married and secondly its was HIS choice and no i didnt pressure him into it either i had NO idea he was going to propose, we had always joked we would be 50 when we get married! grrrrr she annoys me so much and makes me feel like crap. and to top it off i have to work with her ( she is at another store but is always ringing here and calling in) We thinking she is jelous because she is the middle child and it should have been her getting married next not us.

Ok Rant over

Well she sounds like a gem! 8O want me to come poke her in the eye? ;) lol
Don't worry about her babe. She is probably, as you said a wee bit jel because she is not next in line to get hitched!

Did I mention my suprise for FH? He asked for bagpipes, and I said flat out no (I hate them) but he has scottish herritage. ANYWAYS. The bagpiper is booked and ready to go to play for FH before I arrive to the ceremony! :D (my mother has also always dreamed of having a bag piper play at my wedding for some reason too!) Can't wait to see his face (on video) when the dude appears from nowhere and starts playing. We are going to ask one of FHs friends to play acoustic guitar and sing while everyone is arriving so I will have to work it in with him too....so he doesn't get too shocked when he gets interrupted. ;)
The suprise was almost ruined when FH found the guys name and number in my bag! 8O oops!

KTloos it's our one-year pre-anniversary today!!! I am choosing not to take this rubbish weather we've got in Canberra today as an omen :D

Had a slightly odd wedding-related experience yesterday when I had lunch with my mum and she said her and dad had discussed wedding contributions (my sister is getting married in April) and had agreed on the amount. She told me what it was and I said oh that's very generous, how lovely, you didn't have to, it's really appreciated, etc. etc. Then I realised the cafe was super noisy and I wasn't 100% sure what the amount was. By then though I felt it was too late to ask her to repeat it. We're not a family that openly discusses money so it might have been awkward. When I got back to work I wrote my sister an email and asked "Did she say 'a thousand' or 'eight thousand'?" My sister wrote back and said "8 thousand!! Either that or they love me way more than you." Nice :lol:

Either amount would have been more than welcome, but there is a pretty big difference between the two! We've planned a wedding we can afford but that gives us a bit more breathing room so I'm now confident we'll be able to get the photographer we want and hopefully will have more spending money for the honeymoon.

This doesn't suprise me at all LOL freaky coincidences keep happening with us! We are not the only ones though! Elle_jay and I were chatting and worked out her aunt lives like 4 doors up from me! 8O
I have to do a bit of cleaning (OK so a LOT. got to clean out the office lol) but tonight when I go to mum and dads b4 work I will shoot you some emails with the bag pipers names. I just deleted all the numbers out of my ph so JD couldn't find them (note JD=FH LOL ooops..i am used to typing his nickname, which is JD) so I will look them up again. Douglas is charging $200...another guy I just heard back from was going to charge $300, but he also only just got back to me and I emailed him like 3 or 4 weeks ago! I will look into it for you. :)
