Brisbane Wedding Photography – Jeff + Amanda

November 29th, 2010

Elegant and timeless – with a cracking dash of colour – that is what I see when I look at Jeff and Amanda.  They sure do look like they are having a blast – and at the end of the day, that is what you want to be having on the best day of your life!  All that planning and stress just melts away once you say “I do”.  The portraits that Jason shoots before the ceremony and then after the ceremony show just that – endless love and an overwhelming relief that it all went well.  I know you all don’t really want me to say this but sometimes it is the little mishaps – the fumbled lines, the accidental trips, the weeping – that you remember the most and become the memorable stories from your day.  Ask your mum and dad or your grandparents and I’ll bet they have a story or two about someone locking the keys in the car or the bride’s shoe breaking as she got out of the car or the best man barely alive from a major night out the night before.  It is these things that you can laugh about and become woven into the folklore that is your wedding day.  So today I give you Jeff and Amanda – I wonder what their stories will be?

I am a major sucker for a dog portrait – I’m sure there is a post in here somewhere!

Oh yeah and Amanda’s Dad wrote and performed this song for her – I would have been a weeping mess if my Dad had done this for me.  How beautiful!

An Apple a Day

November 28th, 2010

As we start to head into the party season we all know how important it is to try and eat something good regularly.  It helps to keep you upright for one thing, but it also helps keep you going as you hurtle from one crazy party to another eating and drinking your way into 2011!!  Whenever my scales of bad foods outweigh the good, I make one of these.  Full of dried fruits and nuts, wholemeal flour and honey, it makes a great and, more to the point, healthy way to start the day – that one good thing before it all goes downhill the way of many, many vodkas and mini sausage rolls (or heaven forbid the evil kebab).  Jason and I usually toast it and, if you can manage to not put lashings of butter on it, two slices of this is healthy and will keep you going all day.  I should also say that I mix up the fruit and nuts combination each time I make it – sometimes it is apricots, apples and almonds; other times cranberries, blueberries and macadamias – just choose what is right for you!  Oh yeah – and a berocca with a Coke chaser can go a long way to feeling a bit better the next day, if you know what I mean.  Anyone got a fool proof hangover cure they want to share?

Apple, Peach and Almond LoafBill Granger Everyday

1/2 cup rolled oats

300 ml milk

2 cups wholemeal self raising flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

125 gms craisins

50 gms dired apple, diced

1/3 cup soft brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 tablespoons honey

1 egg, lightly beaten

3 tablespoons almonds, roughly chopped, plus 2 tablespoons extra

Put oats in a bowl, pour milk over them and leave to soak for 30 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.  Lightly grease and line a 1 kg loaf tin with baking paper.  Sift flour and baking powder together into a bowl and stir in rolled oats, dried fruit, sugar cinnamon, honey , egg and almonds.  Mix together well.  Spoon mixture into the tin, level the top and sprinkle the extra almonds.  Bake for 45 minutes, or until it is golden brown on top and cooked through.  Leave to cool a little in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.  Toast and eat – feeling smugly satisfied that you have done yourself one good deed for the day!
