It’s been a while since I’ve sat down to write a blog post. And a lot has happened since then. Continue Reading…
Happy Friday! Last month we had the opportunity to be a part of an awesome event which saw a bunch of passionate people work together for an important cause. We had the chance to play a part in the Light FM sponsored Free to Be concert, an event where local artists came together to sing, dance and perform to fight for the freedom for those trapped in human trafficking. We were overjoyed that we could contribute to something that we felt so passionate about, freedom and the arts. We know what you’re thinking, Val and Vess can sing and dance?! No we haven’t been hiding a singing talent, we left that to the professionals! We were lucky to lend our talents to assist the absolutely wonderful Red Hong Yi!
If there’s one tip that we would love to give you, is that never put a limit on what you think you are capable of. If you had told us that we were going to be spending a Saturday morning cutting up assorted fresh fruits to make a fruit mosaic top lay, we wouldn’t have heard a word of it. But that’s what we did!
What’s that one thing that every girl knows and dreams of? It’s common knowledge that every young lady grows up wishfully thinking and dreaming of their ‘big day’. For some the big day may be when they get their first job, graduate from uni, move out of home. However, we would be kidding ourselves if we didn’t define the big day as the “wedding day”.
We’ve personally love love love weddings. We love the different aspects of it, the beautiful flowers, the amazing cakes, the touching photographs, the thought out table decor. We’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings, make invites, do videography, and it never gets old! What we love the most is that weddings are ultimately a celebration of two people joining in love, life and in holy matrimony. That on that day, it is the opportunity for a couple to get creative in sharing their story and having the best day celebrating their love with their closest and most cherished!
From what we’ve seen, if can be daunting approaching the task of creating that perfect day. From the decor to the clothing, there’s not one detail that can be missed. If there’s one thing that we have learnt from the weddings that we’ve been a part of, is that no one wants to have that cookie cutter wedding where the results are formulatic and has no personal touch. That’s where the Esty Bride Trunk show comes in!
Simply put, there was a variety of gorgeous sellers who were so kind, generous and sweet. They proudly shared their creations and it was so great being able to chat to people who loved weddings and creativity just as much as we do! Did we mention they had an Instagram wreath and the wonderful Mint and Melon Boutique taught us how to make our own floral crowns? Best event ever? Yes!
