We just had the first ever meeting with a wedding celebrant and it was AWFUL. Felt like buying a car (a Porsche when all I want a vintage Fiat Cinquecento!), plus the lady forgot to ask ANYTHING about us. I have recurring nightmares of her jumping out of a cake full of confetti in the middle of the ceremony and singing the theme song from Titanic. We fled.
What's massively cheered me up is that the lovely Jess emailed a link to this wedding.
I absolutely love it. Exactly the kind of slightly crazy handmade love-filled scenario I'm after.
We have thought about our invitations and there will be two different sets - the first one will be a mixtape CD with a handmade booklet invitation mailed out to everyone attending the Melbourne wedding, and the other one will be a card and treasure map pack sent out for the Munich wedding. I would love to print these myself but I don't have any experience in printing and I don't have a Gocco either. I will either need to get them printed or somehow ebay the hell out of a Gocco.
Some beautiful invitations I've seen elsewhere:
