G + D + H + C + N + Z.
The Hodgetts family became official.
Lots of words running through my head as I sit to write this blog post but I’m pretty sure none will sufficiently do.
Gemma had been following my work for about 3 years before getting in touch. That’s a big deal for me and a ton of expectation.
I trust I did your story justice.
Thanks for watching.
a massive thanks to the wonderful Dee from pink & purple passing on my details. Gemma’s best friend + florist + planner extraordinaire.
things don’t always go to plan.
how you imagined your wedding day and the reality of what mother nature provides are often two different things.
embrace it. it’s no big deal.
love the elements within your control, and let go of what you can’t.
often it’s better than you could have imagined.
this is the day your family becomes official.
savour every. precious. moment.

a letter to her 10 year old self…
“I am giving you permission to slow down…
to just be.
to embrace each moment and feel it fully, rather than already move on to the next.
to know that life can be only lived in the present moment.
and our soul can only be heard when we are still enough to listen…”
