engagement party

This is going to be a very long and very picture heavy post.
On Saturday March 10, Nick and I had our engagement party.
It was held at my parents house and was very laid back.
[I'm saving all the fancy stuff for the wedding.]
I hired a photographer and I have to say, totally worth it.
She got some fantastic shots.
I won't post all of the photo's as I don't want to intrude on all my guests privacy and some faces might be blanked out for the same reason.
I also threw in some of the edited photos.
Oh, and the photos are in a completely random order for some reason.


 James, Lauren & myself chugging down some water.
I was a very good girl. I had 2 vodka cranberries then went non-alcoholic for the rest of the night.
The same cannot be said about all the guests though that's for sure!
               James & Lauren again.
 Amanda & myself.
Those aren't crows feet [yet!], they are my smile creases.
 Having a chat to my dad.
Excuse the excessive boobage, I was leaning over to talk to him and didn't realise I was putting on a show! 
 The following five photos are probably my favourite.
I had been telling Louise earlier that week how high my brother can lift me and she didn't believe me, so I had to prove my point.
 Slippery dress
 Me saying 'See? I told you!'
"I'm flying Jack, I'm flying!"
 Time for the dismount
 If this photo was taken 0.001 of a second earlier, you would see my underwear.
In hindsight, I should have realised my dress would catch the wind.
Oh well.
 Don't ask, because I have no clue what's going on here.
 Mum: 'There's something on your boob'
 Me: 'Oh there is too! It won't come off!'
Mum: 'I'll do it'
 Myself & Louise, before everyone showed up.
 My cousin Melanie, my Nan and myself.
Mum wanted a nice photo of us so I go to lean in and somehow completely stumble in to my Nan, and nearly spill my drink everywhere.
Total action shot.
 Laughing about how uncoordinated I am. 
 In case you're wondering, this photo isn't posed.
I've had a couple of people question that, which is a pity as it's one of my favourites.
As you can see, Louise bought me my wedding night lingerie.
 Louise defending the honour of her goon bag.
 Excuse Nick's blanked out face.
This is my 'ohh I see' face.
Easily confused with my 'What the hell is going on?' face or my 'Huh?' face.
 Damn my huge cheeks! Damn them to hell!

 The bridesmaids & myself
[L-R] Amanda, Louise, myself, Melanie & Lauren.
My family <3
 Myself, Ryan, Mum, Dad & Jordan.
 I absolutely adore this photo, it's so silly but so us.
My 2 big brothers, Ryan & Jordan.
Louise, myself & Melanie.

There are a lot more photos but my computer kept freezing and this is as far as I got with the picture uploads so this is all I'm doing.

Overall it was a fantastic night.
There were a few inappropriate comments but if that's the worst thing that happened then I'm a pretty happy girl.
I may or may not do a post going in to further detail about the night, but I'm not sure. 
Would anyone be interested in reading that?

The specifics;
Dress; Sophia [Bought at a local boutique]
Shoes; Windsor Smith
Make up; Pout Cosmetics
MUA; Tara @ Pout Cosmetics
Hair; Myself [Can't you tell? haha]
Necklace; Michael Hill
Nail polish; OPI Divine Swine
Photographer; Chelsea @ Proof of Life Photography

Just a side note; I know that my bra is WAY to visible. I actually had the perfect bra laid out to take with me to my parents house [I got ready there] but I totally forgot to take it and by the time I realised it was too late.

ETA; I just looked over all the photos and have realised that all the photos feature maybe 10 people.
We had about 100 guests but I really don't want to invade their privacy as I don't know how they'd feel about being featured on my blog.
Also, I blanked out Nick's face as I hadn't asked him how he feels about being on le blog, upon publishing, he told me he doesn't care.
So from now on, he won't be blanked out!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the photos!


  1. It looks like such a great party! Congrats on getting engaged.
