The lovely Ascot House, in Ascot Vale of course set the scene for today’s wedding. On a perfect autumn day, the trees provided a wonderful ambiance and the couple who were married today had the picture-perfect wedding.
It was such a pleasant wedding today. The weather gods did try to mess with our heads, looking like it was going to rain at times and the wind threatening to blow a gale at other times, but it turned out to be sunny and quite comfortable.
I know it’s not kosher to complain about the rain after all the heat we have had lately in Melbourne but I’m going to anyway! Seriously, it’s Saturday afternoon on March…… there were hundreds of weddings this afternoon, surely the weather gods know this.
Being hot enough to make my make-up melt on my face before the wedding is not such a good thing for a marriage celebrant. But it was all good in the end, a cloud cover and a nice breeze saved the day, THANK GOD!
If you could see me as I write this, you would see that my eyes are slightly watery. And that is because the ceremony I did today has had a profound effect on me. In fact, every time I would think of the story this couple told me when I first met them a few months ago, I tear up and today, as I relayed this story during the renewal of vows ceremony, I struggled but managed to keep it together.
