Warm Winter Wedding

Well, we are coming to a “quiet time” for weddings now although I sometimes wonder why….. Of course the obvious answer is because of the weather. But this makes me ponder even more, if the weather is a factor, then surely we should be thinking about celebrating our weddings in winter. After all, this is Melbourne and the weather gods are constantly messing with our heads so why not hit them back by playing their own game.


A quick change of venue

We were all checking our phones today, watching to see what the rain radar was telling us. Will it or won’t it? Well, it did….but not until after the decision was made that it was not going to rain and we would have the ceremony at the beautiful tea tree garden at the RACV Resort in Cape Schanck


An Autumn wedding

Chateau Yering is a wonderful historic House Hotel in Yarra Glen and at this time of the year with the leaves changing colour, looks absolutely amazing! It set the scene for the wedding today which turned out to be lovely. Even the weather behaved itself….


I’d rather be a Kiwi than an Aussie right now!

I always count my blessing that I am an Aussie; after all it’s the best country in the world. Compared to the rest of the world, our lifestyle is pretty lay-back, we have great beaches, fantastic country regional areas, no wars, and freedom of speech.


A Boat Harbour in Somerville?

Who would’ve thought that there would be a boat harbour in Somerville! I live about 15 minutes away and I always thought Somerville was landlocked, but I was wrong. And today, we held a wedding there.
