Darren & Alison’s: A Union of 2 Generous Hearts

Had the pleasure of being part of D&A’s wedding early November this year! Been a while since I last did weddings and I was just reminded of how much job I find in doing them, having the honor of blessing a couple on one of the biggest events in their lives πŸ™‚

Both Darren & Alison are one of the most loving couple towards others I know πŸ™‚ Never afraid to be themselves, having no reserve in loving people; they have such gentle spirits. And by bringing these 2 whole people together, I know that they are going to be such a power couple in blessing the people around them!

Didn’t really get a chance to snap a proper picture with the newly weds 😦
Leading up to the wedding, the boyfriend did a pre-wedding video for them as well. A short video for them to share their story and how Jesus really divinely brought them together, leading up to their wedding. I tagged along and took some pictures while they sweat in the sun hee!

Okay back to the decor of the wedding, Alison chose a dusty blue/grey look to adorn the reception area. Went flower- shopping and here’re some of my loots:

Some really beautiful Eucalyptus Nuts. They are just absolutely fascinating to look at! Those little caps are filled with the fluffy blooms! Some of the nuts were almost blooming and they looked like they were bursting out in abundance!

Also bought some soft cream roses and (my favorite of all time) dried lavender.

Washi-taped some paper cups in all sorts of different patterns, and filled them up with popcorn! It was a hit with the kids πŸ˜‰ Wonderful idea by the bride.

And a dreamy photobooth area with helium balloons and fairy lights!!! Throughout the wedding lunch, when I cam out to keep the decor, there were toddlers playing happily with the left over helium balloons! Note to self- balloons are an awesome idea.

Besides the decor, the bride Alison also placed a customized order of handmade boutonniere for the groom and his groomsmen!

Super happy that I made these babies! All in 1 night! Prior to this project I was just having the longest hiatus in making anything! And I didn’t realize how much I missed making them till that night πŸ™‚ Really am so thankful for this gift.

What a beautiful thing this union was πŸ™‚ and how blessed I am to have been a part of it. Bring’em weddings on!!!

Hillsong Conference 2012

Since I haven’t had much time to spend on Adorninglory lately, I might as well share with you my life story πŸ™‚ in hope that you’re interested. Well, even if you weren’t I would still blog so yeah. Heh.

Just a few glimpse of what’s happening recently in my awesome life πŸ˜‰

With so many things happening for me this season, Jesus decided that it’d be apt to just sweep me away to Aussie with Him to remind me how captivating He is; and how much He is in control. Last year being a year of confusion and messiness, this year, 2012, Daddy God really showed me how He is in control, and that He’s putting everything in place, accordingly to His divine order. And IΒ shan’t be afraid.Β β™₯

Hillsong ConferenceΒ AustraliaΒ is a church conference put together every year for the past 25 years (if I’m not wrong) by the Hillsong Church. And year after year, people from all over the world gather together in this conference for one reason and one reason only- JESUS. Regardless of denomination, country, race, people come to be loved and to know Love even more. And it was just so mind-blowing for me this year, going to my first ever Hillsong Conference. It’s just so humbling to see the body of Christ altogether, called to do different things but nonetheless by the Lord Himself. And to see the heart of Hillsong Church and its awesome leaders for the people. So so humbling and lifted up at the same time. I kept hearing “Rise up” in my spirit. As though Daddy God wants me to step out in this season. To go where I have yet passed before.

Can’t wait for next year!

Bridal adorning

Have been toying with the idea of branching out into doing bridal accessories for Adorninglory and I’ve tried out some such as fabric bridal bouquets here and this one here-

So just to share some inspirations I got from my searches! From what little experience I’ve had with weddings, I do realise that Singaporean brides are a bit conservative when accesorising themselves for their big day. Being the girl that I am, I’ve always dreamed of my wedding, and when it comes to accessories, I would want something fresh, different and quite a bit over the top! Hee. Hoping they’ll inspire you too!

Take a good look at it. Allow yourself a luxury of 20 seconds just to study it. Drink in the colours that you never thought could be that beautiful. Let loose and be drawn into everyone of it, almost allowing each dot to tell you a bed time story. Get awestruck.

And then get this: that the one Creator of such magnificent work is the very One who made you. Wouldn’t such an Artist be intricate in creating you? Would an author of such captivating object allow the slightest flaw when crafting you? Wouldn’t you think that you are more priceless than a Picaso, of more worth than the crown of a king? Of more value than the streets of gold in heaven even?

 

Well, I would.

And everytime I re-realize that, I fall in love with my Creator all over again.
