Mr & Mrs Morgan- a real life wedding!

A beautiful pink and aqua day fit for a princess. Ellerie created a truely whimsical day filled with beautiful personal touches to make it a truly spectacular wedding.

I LOVED the chocolate heart lollipops used as place cards (and a handy snack for a very pregnant guest)

 The flowers really "popped" against the white and looked fantastic inside the white marquee!

 A wish tree in the reception area along with towers containing many of the bride and grooms favourite sweets and chocolate bars provided a sweet treat while writing words of advice and well wishes for the couple- again very handy for my pregnant self!

 An impressive macaroon tower replaced the classic wedding cake and reflected Elleries love for languages and a year she spent living in France, the tables each named using the word love in different languages.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Morgan, heres wishing your very own "happily ever after!"

It has been rather crazy at happily ever after headquaters.....
Introducing Mr Jensen Carter Mateer,
 Born November 13th 2011 so between him and this little madam, I have been a little bit busy.

Hopefully this explains my lack of posts, but I am hoping that seen as 2012 seems to be a year of weddings for me I will get back to regular blogs to give you all some ideas for your "Happily ever after"
