I just Love the Irony

I think it is just my warped sense of humour but the irony of today’s ceremony rally did amuse me.

A Chapel amongst the greenery

What a beautiful chapel at Tatra Receptions! It is surrounded by lots of ferns, trees and other greenery which can all be seen through the many large windows, giving a very picturesque atmosphere. It also housed a grand piano which was used for the music today adding to the happy moment.


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.

Winter Wedding in Langwarrin

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!

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.
