  • They were horsing around at the wedding

    LAUREN and Zac Jackson (pictured) wear their hearts on their sleeves — and keep their saddles on their horses.

    So when the Seymour couple married in Tallarook it seemed a given that their trusty steeds would share the occasion.

    An occasion that also coincided with the storms of biblical proportions forecast by the Bureau of Meteorology for the weekend of December 2 and 3.

    But Mr and Mrs Jackson weren’t going to let anything rain on their parade and incredibly, on what was the wettest day of the year (and of most years), Lauren, Zac and 140 surprisingly dry guests got through the ceremony with barely a drop falling on them.

    You could not have asked for a more rustic setting, on the banks of the Goulburn. It was so in keeping with the country lifestyle of the couple.

    ‘‘I thought we were going to be rained out because on the Friday all the paddocks and the garden were under water,’’ Lauren said. ‘‘We were putting the marquee up and there was a little river running right through it. We thought it was going to be a disaster.’’

    They were never going to pull the pin, however, deciding instead that everyone could wear gumboots or ditch shoes altogether if the river flooded.

    But just before the clock struck two, the rain eased and Lauren was able to ride her trusty steed, a stock horse stallion named Dennys Acres, down the aisle without an umbrella.

    The happy couple reckoned Zac’s late grandmother, Shirley, who died just four days before the wedding, might have had a hand in their good fortune.

    ‘‘We reckon grandma was up there looking after us,’’ Lauren said.

    She said despite the dire weather predictions and a somewhat soggy garden ceremony, ‘‘it was the best day of our lives’’.

    The 24-year-old dental nurse and personal trainer said she started riding at her Gippsland home when she was eight and Zac, 27, who runs an engineering business in Shepparton, making horse floats and trucks, has been doing it even longer.

    ‘‘Horses and camp drafting are so much a part of our lives it would not have been right to have our wedding without involving our horses,’’ Lauren said.

    As soon as the service was over the guests got to kick back and watch Lauren put Dennys Acres through its paces (above) in an adjoining paddock, complete with cattle, for some of the most original wedding pictures.

    Once their fairytale occasion was over the horses were put back in their own paddocks, the guests all went home and the happy couple were back at work on the Monday.Read more at:black bridesmaid dresses | bridesmaid dresses melbourne

  • Outfit Time! Let's Do This

    Keeping it delicate means an ensemble made from sheer or air fabrics to give that easy, effortless effect.

    Blazer dresses are back to steal the show! This trend has been rocked by Hilary in The Fresh Prince of Belair and Fran from The Nanny and has re-emerged this Christmas in the closets of Bella Hadid and Kim Kardashian.

    A structured shorts suit never gets old; it's a trend that refuses to die. Go dust off yours because its time has come again. If you got rid of yours after the last time it was trending, please hurry and buy a new one and never make such a silly mistake again!

    Following the suit trend, if you have day events that you want to attend and make a statement, be sure to add a matching skirt set to your wardrobe; you can up your style by purchasing one with appliqué or a loose, airy one, thus handing you the 'Most Stylish' title.

    Chiffon fabric is in. Ignore the discomfort it may cause because you are bound to turn some heads, especially if you mix it with something else that's trending, like appliqué or loose frills. The discomfort will vanish after you look in the mirror and see how fabulous you look!

    Some additional tips: switch out your sequins for metallics. A statement gown is a must for your favourite Christmas party; the more unique the print is on the fabric, the better it is. If you see a silk or chiffon fabric outfit....grab it!

    Can you really have a Christmas without trendy boots? Vinyl and leather are so in right now, especially in red. Whether ankle, calf, knee-high or all the way up your thighs, these boots are here to make a move! They can literally be the focus of one of your Christmas outfits, easily. Pointed toes are back in. Yes, yes, I know. They're not the most ideal, but beauty is pain; bear the discomfort all in the name of looking fabulous!

    Looking F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S

    Now that you have everything in check, you got this in the bag! See you and your girlfriends this weekend! I look forward to seeing that rose gold highlight glistening from across the room, those vampy lips around your big smile as I approach, and the fab hairstyle setting the tone as I look down to see your fabulous blazer dress with your shiny vinyl boots. Kiss, kiss on each cheek! Then the introduction to your bestie who greets me with her Holo Flakes manicure nails for a handshake, with her smokey eyes looking all fleeky, as I glance down to see her in a structured suit made out of chiffon with appliqué all over it.... The Christmas season has been 'slayed'! Now let's pose for a picture because we all 'ah seh one'.Read more at:short wedding dresses | bridal gowns
