Hey guys!

I have some very exciting news!

We’ve (unofficially) decided to have the engagement session photo shoot in Christchurch, New Zealand – GP’s homeland! 😀 It wasn’t planned at all, honestly, but it came up in conversation when I was chatting with one of our photographers. We originally were thinking of going to Cockatoo Island for the e-session, a little island in Sydney harbour, and had originally intended on having it in August. When I mentioned in passing that we would be in New Zealand in July, we got this reply back:

We’re also heading to NZ in early July – when are you going and where? We fly into Christchurch I think on the 14th! Would you like to do the shoot there if we’re in the same place at the same time? Haha!

I can honestly say my hands were trembling. I quickly called GP to ask if we would be able to (and was met with voicemail; he was in a meeting at work) and then waited anxiously for his reply. I tried to be realistic about it – we might not be in Chch during the same time as them, Grant might not like the idea, etc – but then he replied.

He was as keen as I was.


After back-and-forth emails with our photographer, we’ve almost settled on it. We’re waiting on the confirmation and GP and I are trying to think of places in Chch that would be a nice backdrop for the shoot.

All in all, we’ll be having a photo shoot in Christchurch! YAY!

Another thing to note – we’ve seen our florist (who is just so very awesome) AND we’ve talked reception with our reception coordinator. GP and I are very happy with what is happening on the wedding front and I’ll be sure to share more with you guys later!!

For now, I need to just zone out. I’ve been studying for 7 hours and my brain has decided it doesn’t want to focus anymore.

Busy, busy, busy

My title is so very original.

Anywho – hello gang! 🙂 GP and I have been hurrying around, trying to move from one house to another. We’ve ultimately decided to move into my parents’ house and we’ve been flat out moving things to and fro with the help of my dad’s ute. It’s been exhausting, but if I haven’t lost a great amount of weight after this, I’m gonna be pissed! (no, not really, but still – so much to-and-fro-ing and heavy lifting). GP and I have started a healthy-living regime, which means daily walks, copious amounts of water, and portion eating. We’ll be joining a gym soon enough 🙂

I’ve lost some weight (not enough that I’m happy, but it’s a slow, steady journey). GP’s lost HEAPS of weight, and I’m so proud of him (albeit a little bit jealous!).

As for wedding stuff, that’s currently on hold. Although exciting news might still be on the horizon with our photographers!

Wish us both luck! 🙂
