Brisbane Wedding Photography – Kell + Melissa

March 28th, 2011

Is there anyone out there who is single?  Raise your hand.  Are you interested in meeting someone?  If there is one thing I am always amazed about it is how people meet and fall in love.  Kell and Melissa met at a party years ago and due to a series of miscommunications and some poor transcription they never hooked up.  (Boys – little tip from me to you – make sure you get her phone number right!!! Double check it if you have to!)  I always believe that timing plays an important part in how people meet, so perhaps Melissa and Kell weren’t ready.  Maybe they had a few more things to do before they met again.  And meet again they did and suddenly, magically, it all happens…SIGH.  I guess the moral to my story (cause there has to be a moral doesn’t there!) is that you just never know how and where you will meet the person of your dreams…so…to be on the safe side…make sure you haven’t tucked your skirt into your pantyhose and check after eating that you have nothing scary between your teeth. (I’m giving you pearls guys, pearls I say.)

I wonder what story Melissa’s parents have about when they first met?

I love this photo – you know when you see the picture you’ve just got to take it!

Isn’t Customs House just beautiful?  It reeks of old world glamour.

Let’s get the party started!

Melissa changed during the night into this fabulous dress – perfect for getting down on the dance floor.  We have the photos (and boy are they good) but we promised not to show anyone…

To Pea or Not To Pea

March 27th, 2011

I love peas – but I have now realised that many, many people don’t.  What is not to love I ask?  They are sweet, soft, easy to prepare (well the frozen kind is) and versatile!  Soups, salads, buttered, baked – you name it the pea can handle it.  We had some lovely friends over to dinner the other night and (after a moment’s hesitation that they might not be pea people) I thought pea crostini!!!  For my friends who don’t like peas (and you guys know who you are) – it is time to look away!  This dish is dead simple and easy to make and is great as a substantial appetiser when you haven’t had time to get dinner on the way and you need to tide people over.


1 Baguette, sliced about 3cm thick

Olive oil

Set oven for 180 degrees celsius.  Place sliced baguette on oven tray and drizzle liberally with olive oil.  Put in oven for 15 mins or until golden brown.  Be careful that you don’t overcook the crostini – it needs to be golden and toasted but not too brown or it will shatter when you eat it.

Pea Puree

Half a bag of frozen peas

1 Head of garlic



Parmesan and cracked pepper to serve

Wrap garlic in aluminium foil and place in oven at 180 degrees celsius for 20 mins or until cloves are soft.  Microwave the peas on high for three minutes.  Let cool slightly.  Place peas and garlic (just squeeze the cloves out of the paper into the processor bowl) and a good hunk of butter in food processor and process until thick. Add salt to taste.  ( I refrigerated it for a bit to allow the puree to harden up and become more spreadable.)

Lather the crostini with pea puree, cracked pepper and long strips of parmesan cheese!  Voila.
