Old Gippstown was the venue for yesterdays wedding. Set up as a heritage park, it hosts a water wheel that was turning during the ceremony helping to create the ambiance for this ceremony.
What a day for a wedding! The Weather Gods decided to play havoc (as they do) and it’s Grand Final Day. But it’s all good! The wedding was held early in the day and at a perfect place when considering our Melbourne climate.
After last year’s season, the weather gods owe us big time! But it seems that they are not willing to pay up just yet. And as a result of this, yesterdays wedding had to be moved to “under cover”.
Well it’s the middle of winter and today the weather was grand! Which was a good thing because I had a wedding today at the Healesville Sanctuary. Such a lovely spot to have a wedding, amongst the kangaroos, emus and kookaburras. We had the ceremony in a rotunda with a wood fire going which created a fantastic ambiance.
Today’s wedding was held in a wonderful chapel at the Whitechapel Receptions which lucky for me, is also close to home! So a wonderful wedding at a wonderful venue in a wonderful area! And it certainly is a wonderful venue, the chapel was roomy, yet cosy and it also had the facilities for the reception, so I would highly recommend it.
