That's exactly us! Although I understand and respect the 'art' type shots, its not us - we just want someone to capture the fun and excitment (and love ) on the day! I don't want too much posing, except maybe for family shots! I might send you a PM for the photographer you recommended - I'd love to look at her site/blog if she has one.
One of the photographers I'm thinking about is Snow Gum - has anyone had any experience with them? I love one of her wedding shots were there are about 5 little flower girls sitting on a bench at Lanyon Homestead - its absolutely gorgeous!

I had a bit of an idea on what I wanted and didn't want but wasn't too fussed (not like some people who know exactly what they want) and the lady at Angelic Inspirations pulled out a dress that I almost refused to try on becuase I didn't like the look of it...I am so glad I did try it on becuase I fell in love with it and ended up putting the deposit down then and there! I know a few people have had problems with Angelic Insprirations but I would highly recommend checking them out too as they did nothing but bend over backwards for me.
Yeah, I have gone into it pretty much with this view - open to trying anything on. However my Grandmother has made it pretty clear that I should not get a strapless gown as they "show off far too much skin" can't please everyone though! I think in most dress shops the assistants have a pretty good idea what will look good on what body shap. Thanks (and Sharali) for the info on Angelic Inspirations - I hadn't considered them but will put them on the list!
How is everyone elses plans coming along? I still need a photographer, and now the florist I wanted is unavailable, so I need to find another florist. I managed to find out the email of a letterpress in canberra so I will contact her this week!
