What a lovely beach at Coronet Bay...lovely and quiet..... lovely and sheltered.... and a lovely place for a wedding....which of course is what happened there today. The weather was lovely, the guests were lovely and the bride was ........gorgeous!
I know that as a marriage celebrant, I am really only one of the cogs in the wheel for the couple on their journey to getting married. Even though I put a lot of work into the wedding ceremony, it’s not about me, it all about the bride and groom. I understand that and accept it happily. But today, I would like to take a small part of the glory as I have reached a milestone. Today I conducted my one hundredth wedding ceremony and I must say, that to do that in only three and a half years is pretty dam good, and I am quite proud of myself!
But thankfully the gardens in The Overnewton Castle in Keilor have lots of shade which made today’s wedding more comfortable. A lovely place to hold a ceremony with greenery surrounding us and a lovely old building (the castle) there for the reception.
Oh the weather....ho-hum. But this time we had a plan B that worked beautifully. The Patterson River country Club has a beautiful view from the balcony which also protects from the rain and the wind. We even had a candle lit in honour of the Bride’s Father and the Grooms Pa.
Happy Australia Day!
