I’ve shared a lot of wedding snaps with you here on the blog, but now that we have our official photos back from the very talented 88Photography and Ruth Garner Photography, Mr Monster has made us a little website where if you like, you can have a flick through our memories. Just click on the image above to take you there!
Well…we did it. I married my Mr Monster and we had the most amazing time. We have so much to show you, but for now we have just had a champagne breakfast and are off for a mini-moon to the local zoo and the travelling Moscow State Circus.
Over the next few days I will show you everything I made and everything we got up to over the wedding weekend, but for now, here is a little teaser from our official photographs of the day!
I’ve had a productive old day today in my craft room preparing for the Little Monsters baby show in a couple of weeks time. Babygro monsters are largely completed, but I wanted to get together another of my mother and baby creations to promote on the day too. I worked with ‘cute’ as my buzzword and I reckon I pulled that off!
We’ve had Mr Monster’s photography kit out to do some shots to use on our wedding invitations, so cutesy and I had a little photo shoot of our own, what do you think?
I’m very lucky that Mr Monster is as much of a big kid as I am. We both love silly hats, funny songs, practical jokes, and don’t even get us started on the idea of preparing for christmas!
After a lovely date-night last night which involved a very competitive game of jungle themed crazy golf and a few glasses of fine west-country cider, we bounded out of bed this morning and headed off to Bristol’s newish harbourside aquarium. I have to say the place has been really well done, with nicely designed walkways, imaginative exhibits, and of course many weird and wonderful forms of aquatic life. From a MASSIVE octopus, to dainty seahorses and graceful rays, we had a great and frankly really relaxing time. I’m considering paying for a years membership so I can go down if ever I feel a little highly strung, to lose myself in the meditative motion of fins and flippers.
Besides having a delightful day out with my man, I also found monster inspiration in every tank. Upturned mouths, bulging eyes, bizarre markings, they all have potential to make it into my next creation. Nature gives us such a huge variation and some amazing, beautiful and often just plain weird features. Don’t be surprised if my works takes a little fishy turn in the near future!
The seahorse exhibition was especially well done with a glass dome inside the tank and a tunnel to crawl through so you could pop your head up inside and get a really close look.
I was especially fond of the friendly little terrapins who popped their heads out of the water to say hello
And have never noticed how much jellyfish look like buttons
The Rays have funny faces
And so do we!
