Phillip Island Wedding

Trenavin Park is one of favourite wending venues. It is a beautiful little chapel on Phillip Island and it really is where the tradition of a chapel meets the tranquillity of the country and the excitement of the beach! It is also the chapel in the picture on my FB page.

Oh those emotions……

We were all looking to the sky with high hopes of a rain free ceremony and thankfully it was. Unfortunately, can’t say the same for the wind, which wasn’t too bad, just enough to keep snuffing out the candles that were supposed to stay lit all through the ceremony…ah well, no biggy!

The wind in my sail...I mean veil!

The wind is usually considered the arch enemy of the wedding ceremony (that and rain) and today was no exception except for one small moment during the ceremony.


“Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen” said I “And welcome to the surprise wedding of ……..” Well well well thought the guests who all thought that they were there for an engagement party. This is the fun part of surprise weddings, seeing the looks on the guests faces when they realise that they have been tricked but in a good way!

A Great Langwarrin Wedding

What can I say about the weather apart from the fact that I take full credit for the beautiful day today…. all week the todays bride has been worried about the heat that we have been having so I assured her that I was having discussions with the Weather Gods and assured her that it will all be good for the day….and it was, so full credit to me…lol.
