My cousin Billie and her husband Elliott's beautiful wedding on the 29th December was the main reason for our trip to Noosa over the Christmas period. We had such a lovely and indulgent time, surrounded by my large family (but boy, did I miss being able to drink the bubbly that was flowing). The lead up to the wedding was certainly a family affair. The day before - myself, my mum, grandma, younger sister and two cousins gathered at the wedding venue (my aunt and uncle's hinterland property) to drink tea and make 50+ metres of gelato coloured bunting and 120 red velvet cupcakes - see my sister's recipe here. On the big day, my bridesmaid duties took over - and my camera was put down for the first time in a while. Disappointing in hindsight, but I look forward to sharing the professional photos with you soon - everything from the stunning bride, the spunky groom and his groomsmen, the decorations including pineapples, to the huge fireworks display (seems you get more bang for your buck in Noosa when it comes to cracker night).
On another note, thanks so much for your kind words regarding our baby news. Along with my rapidly growing waistline, It certainly feels 'real' now!
