When you marry in the South West of WA, in the Margaret River Region, in early August, it’s a bit like Forrest Gump, and a box of chocolates, ……………….as you just don’t know what you are gonna get, in terms of weather. Such was the case when my friend’s son, Brett, married Aneta, at Abbey Beach recently. One minute it was going to be ok, then forcast was rain, and so while they had planned to be married on the lawned area near the beach, they just could not take the risk, and instead were married in the heavily glassed sitting area next to the restaurant and bar. And sometimes there is a silver lining, the Bride had wanted to be married in church, but there was no way, the very down to earth, irreverent and cheeky country boy was ever going to be seen dead in a church. But with the high glass formation forming a sort of cathedral feel, Aneta, at least got part of what she had wished for. Plus Brett wanted his Aunty Vic to be the Celebrant, so there was no way getting away from that. Off course it did rain on and off all day, so they made the right choice.
Emilia, was the flower girl and started the procession of 5 beautiful bridesmaids, in royal blue, while Aneta, walked down the aisle to Brett, with “two Dads”.
Brett and the naughty groomsmen, two of which were his brother’s Daniel and Ryan, in slightly grey suits, combined for one beautiful wedding. And little Thomas was there to see his Mum and Dad marry in what was a very family orientated day. Best wishes you two from Aunty Vic.
