{Love Birds} Nikki and Chris forever together

‘You’re the one, the only one, the only one that’s just right just for me
but all the same, you know I, you know I’m, I’m just a fool
I’m a fool for you, I’m a fool, I’m a fool for you’

– Fool for you – John Butler Trio

Music: Acoustic Guitar by good friend Andrew Nelson who played John Butler song “fool for You” as Nikki walked down the aisle and acoustic music throughout reception from another good friend Lou Goryl. Then the tunes slipped into some old favourites via the ipod!

Special moments: Nikki says the moment that Chris sang Black magic woman by Santana to her in front of all of their guests was a moment that she will remember for the rest of her life.

The wedding was a beautiful family affair, Nikki spent the night before the wedding with her Nanna and says it was lovely to have our siblings as our bridesmaids and groomsmen. Plus enjoying the day with heir cheeky two year old son!

Danielle Louise.. Yes please

Danielle Louise – Orange

Sometimes when I can’t sleep I look at clothes. I have a theory that if I am not sleeping I might as well be dreaming. I have found some new pieces at Danielle Louise that I now need. Okay, want but it’s nearly the same.

Danielle Louise is located at 222 Anson Street, Orange (just in case you are feeling generous and want to buy me a present)
