OK, so I was given the thumbs up from the coordinator at the beautiful Dalywaters Rose Garden to say that the bride and her bridesmaids were ready to start walking down the 60 meter aisle to the rose chapel. So I welcome everyone to this special day, please turn your mobile phones off bla bla bla…. Music starts…..first bridesmaids starts walking down….. then second bridesmaid is about to start….. then stops. As I’m standing at my post next to the Groom and his groomsmen, wondering what’s going on, the first bridesmaid starts walking back up the aisle and the coordinator starts waving to me to stop the music.
I have had a bride arrive on a horse before and on a horse and cart but never on a horse and cart into a shopping centre…..until today.
It was almost like “The Hills Were Alive” at today’s wedding. It was in a beautiful back yard at Mount Eliza (my favorite place in the world).
The Dandenong Ranges in Victoria has many awesome wedding venues, each with their own certain charm but gee, it’s hard to go past the magnificent Skyhigh Mount Dandenong. It hosts a view of the whole of Melbourne creating that wow factor! And when the weather gods don’t favour us with sunny wedding weather, what better than to hold a ceremony in a large glass room warmed by a fireplace creating a heavenly ambience. Graham, the very helpful wedding coordinator of Skyhigh, said he practically has to pinch himself every day to remind himself that he is working there for real.
Well it seems that the Sun God one the war of the weather today! All week we have all been watching the weather on the news with dismay but when we all woke up this morning, the sky was blue and it was an absolutely beautiful day.
