I felt like I had died and gone to wedding heaven. Seriously! Portobello Bride was everything about weddings that I DREAM of. A few weekends ago I went to Melbourne for the Portobello boutique wedding market which was held in the gorgeous St Kilda town hall. I felt so privileged to be part of this incredible event, Kim Billing the organiser did an amazingly wonderful job, especially since this was the first Portobello market!
I am moving to Melbourne in June for a while, my husband is starting a PHD at Monash University in something to do with venom (!) - shows how much I know about science...not a lot. You can read more about our Melbourne adventure in this post. I haven't been feeling exactly thrilled to be leaving family and friends here in NZ...but going to the Portobello Bride market really did make me genuinely excited to be moving to Melbourne. I met so many wonderful, generous, kind & talented people who I can now call friends :)
Enjoy the photos! (taken mostly with iphone & Canon g9) xx
Shots of my stand. We had a little dilemma when we were setting up my tables by the stand...my booklets weren't exactly staying up by themselves, and we hadn't bought anything to hold them, so my sister Esther came up with the BRILLIANT idea of taping the booklets together to make a box to hold them in, and it worked perfectly :)
My sister Esther went with me for the long weekend, was so nice doing lots of girly things together :)
Which included lots of coffees..
..cupcakes and magazines..
...we also went to Finders Keepers, an independent design & art market, where we found lots of treasures!
I have a space at the Grand Wedding Show this Sunday, happening at Sky City in Auckland. Come and say hi! xx
