The lovely Fitzroy Gardens

The lovely Fitzroy Gardens in the city was the venue for the wedding today, right in front of the Dolphin Fountain and next to a great big beautiful Golden Elm tree (my favourite tree). A great place for a wedding, especially when the Weather Gods are kind, like they were this afternoon.


Lots of Tears

Well it ended up being a great wedding today, with beautiful weather, lots of laughs, a great couple with plenty of emotions and good cheer all around. But I was a bit uneasy before the wedding as the groom hadn’t arrived until about 5 minutes before the bride and it was after the ceremony was about to start.


When Queenslanders Come South

There is a saying in Melbourne...If you don’t like the weather, just wait an hour...unfortunately, it also goes the other way, from a beautiful warm day to a cool cloudy late afternoon. Which is not so good, especially if you’re a Queenslander!


Poets Lane on Sherbrooke

What an absolutely glorious day it was today in Melbourne! Perfect for a garden wedding in the tree lined Rotunda of Poets Lane on Sherbrooke.


Good ol' Country and Western

Well it was certainly a unusual wedding ceremony for me today. I have never done a wedding out in the sticks before! The hilly terrain was certainly different to what I’m used to, as it was mainly just clay with very dry grass and lots of cracks and in the cracks were plenty of black crickets. Hmmm....this is all fine so far..... as long as none of these little buggers decide to hitch a ride home with me, then I can deal with it.
