Kellie and Jason got married on Sunday. If you have been following the last few posts, you’ll know that it was my third wedding in three days. So I could have been feeling a bit jaded, you may think.
Well, I wasn’t. Partly ‘cos I REALLY LOVE MY JOB, and partly because Kellie has the most amazing, radiant and invigorating smile ever! Not to mention the charming, cheeky and gorgeous Mikayla, Isabelle and Charlie – her smallest attendants on the day. It could have been a stressful day – garden wedding, thunderstorms forecast – but judging by Kellie’s smile, nothing was going to go wrong.
And nothing did.Just have to mention that not only is Charlie a perfectly happy and wonderful boy, but, after being introduced to me once, right at the start of the day, he called me “Dawin” for the entire day. (That’s not a typo – it’s a little boy lisp). I was pretty well charmed, I have to say.The ceremony was on Dog Flat Lawn, Royal Botanic Gardens. The weather was looking fickle. But then, it so often does, in Melbourne. Jason and Kellie had totally the correct plan – hope for the best, but bring umbrellas.
The brollies were not required, in the end. Charlie – as if you hadn’t already completely captivated me…As if to compensate for threatening rain, the clouds began to part. Slowly, majestically, the sun shone through…And the perfect end to a wonderful day. A fantastically laid back reception, at Doyles in Mordialloc. My local, as it happens. Oh – when I say laid back, I mean apart from the UNBELIEVABLY HIGH ENERGY DANCING! It’s a Jewish tradition – to dance with such incredible vigour that the photographer actually starts to fear for his camera! Wow! I was actually quite surprised that Jason could summon the energy to cut the cake.Kellie and Jason – for me, it was a perfect end to an amazing weekend. For you, it looked very much like the perfect start to a wonderful life…
