I was approached the other day about doing a “surprise wedding” in a few months’ time. These weddings seem to be coming more and more popular these days as the element of surprise often adds fun and merriment to the actual ceremony.
I have had the pleasure of conducting weddings all over Melbourne and surrounding suburbs. Sometimes I have traveled for couple of hours to the venue but today was a real treat. The wedding venue was 2 minutes’ walk away from my house!
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.
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
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….
