HARRIET AND MAT | MARRIED

Mat claimed to be a terrible public speaker. I'm not so sure though. He spoke from the heart - and I think that's all that matters.

Nestled under tree tops, on Harriet's parent's farm, Mat shared his words with honesty.

'From today, I can call Harriet my wife,' he said, smiling from both sides of his mouth.

For me, that was powerful.

When Harriet emailed me, she had surrendered to the fact that I would already be unavailable on her wedding day. I'm so grateful that wasn't the case.

  2. WHAT a cool wedding. And so beautifully captured (as always) Mr C!

    Question - Is that a bowerbird nest towards the beginning?

    1. It sure is. Harriet describes herself as a bowerbird and her brother pointed the nest out to me :)

    1. Hi there - this is Harriet. I printed the silk & organza for my dress using leaves from places of significance to us then I had a someone make the dress to my design. It was OK, but my dressmaker had never done a wedding dress before and she kind of ran out of time so my Mum was still sewing as I put it on! I read a book by India Flint called Eco Colour for guidance.

      I am going to do a photo-journal post on my blog www.harrietgoodall.com next week which will go through the process for anyone who is interested in how i made it. You might want to check in and have a look at it.

      Thanks for the kind words : )

  41. You have truly inspired me! A wonderful and relaxed wedding - how it should be. We are getting married in August this year and our wedding is rather different; we are dressing as Victorians and our guests have the choice of wearing clothing from 1830 through to the 1950's as we are celebrating 'those who have gone before'. Our reception is on a steam train. Hopefully the weather in our part of the UK will behave itself that day! Congratulations to all who were involved in Harriet and Matts day - we don't know any of you, but thanks for sharing your wonderful day. X Yvonne, Northwest England.

  58. This was a really quality post.In theory I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article...but what can I say... I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done.

  59. I love #1 on this list. I am totally a victim of this. When I started creating goals around my blog I noticed the quality of my content drop month after month. It wasn’t because I stopped caring what I was publishing… it was simply that my focus was geared towards specific numbers and metrics rather than what you describe as “actions.”
    Because of this #3 and #5 started failing big-time as well and thus a spiral effect began. Thank you very much for this insight. The big thing I’m taking away from this is… to start focusing more on “actions” again!
