What an exciting Easter I had… not only was there chocolate (and an abundance of it..) but there were weddings and brides everywhere! I was thrilled to be gallivanting around the countryside marrying some beautiful people!
On Thursday, with my overnight bag packed and the car filled with equipment, I headed to Colac for the first ceremony. In their own home, with their families present, the couple were married with the sun beating down on us. It was a ceremony that was filled with humor and the bride was adlibbing all the way through!
That night I met another new bride and groom getting set for their wedding in Colac in February. It was lovely to meet them and feel the excitement building!
The next morning after my little holiday… I went to Jancourt East and wow. My new bride and groom out there were excited to be planning their wedding in December at the farm…The views were awesome and I am excited to be able to see that part of the world again!
After that meeting, I headed to Lorne. I haven’t been to Lorne for many years and was somewhat surprised at the greeting of tourists and cars which lined the main street. The street scape down there has changed dramatically, the Mantra Resort taking up a lot of what was once beachside land.
I headed down to the wedding location which was on the beach, just past the Swing Bridge in Lorne. It was a no shoes event which I was thrilled about because I am not a fan of high heels in the sand!! They had made up signs, ‘shoes if you choose’ and placed them on the grassy area, allowing guests the choice! It was a beautiful wedding with the most gorgeous bridal party, friendly, full of life and looking forward to dancing the night away! The bride and groom looked calm and stunning.. I am looking forward to the photos! They were also partaking in Victoria’s first ever 3D wedding video. I am rather looking forward to hearing the feedback.
The next day, after only just beating the storm home and almost being blown away… I headed to South Morang to the most beautiful idyllic chapel. The Little White Chapel is amazing and so were the bride and groom to be married.
This was one of those weddings that I was thrilled to be a part of. The bride had hunted me down to ask if I would travel from Geelong to South Morang to be their celebrant and I wholeheartedly agreed! The both of the them were so down to earth and easy going, their ceremony really described them both as a couple and was truly a lovely way to send them into married life. The bride, a stunning figure, dressed in a beautiful gown and her bridesmaid in black made for a gorgeous ceremony in the chapel. I felt like they belonged there. It was a truly beautiful day, one I will never forget, filled with emotion and so beautiful.
As the wedding season slowly winds down, I am busily meeting new couples and preparing them for their ceremonies in the not to distant future. I truly love this job and I really feel blessed that I get to do this on a daily basis.. Saturday at South Morang was really one of those days where I walk away thinking.. this is why I do this, I love it and I love the people I meet every single day!
Until next time, stay safe…
