Well the weather certainly heated up today! While we were all waiting for the bride who was running very late, we were all sweltering in our good wedding wear, watching the swimmers and sunbathers on the beach at Cowes, Phillip Island. And later, they were watching us as we went through the ceremony. Our bride and groom had a bigger audience than anticipated…
A very precarious walk for the 3 bridesmaids today, one of them heavily pregnant and all of them, not really used to walking in high heels. Bat they made it, over the bridge and on the grass with their stoppers on their heels to stop them from sinking in to the ground.
The weather kept behaving itself today or at least for the wedding for today’s couple. It was supposed to be a late morning wedding but due to the limousine company letting the bride down it turned out to be an early afternoon ceremony instead. But no matter, it all worked out I the end. The ironic thing is that when this couple went out on their first date, they nearly didn’t make it because they couldn’t find a taxi until a mate drove them and today, again a mate came to the rescue, so I’m sure that it was a good omen!
The weather gods looked down on us today and decided to give us a nice sunny day, just perfect for an outside wedding. And on behalf of all the couples that got married in Melbourne today, I thank them, especially the couple that I married today at the beautiful Rippon Lea Estate.
I had two weddings yesterday, both in the same area and both needing to use plan B due to the weather, luckily plan B happened to be a beautiful chapel in both cases. But with the first wedding being at 10.30am and the second at 3.30pm, there was plenty of time in-between for Russell the Roadie and me to go get a yummy lunch including a Devon-shire tea (the diet will have to start next week)in one of the delightful cafe's that the Dandenong’s host plenty of.
