Weddings kick off weeks, months or years prior, when being together all the time trumps going out, when conversations never finish, the heart's desire grows ever stronger, and when like turns into love. And ever so quickly, especially in the last month, the day arrives and usually with great hope for a beautiful day for a Panorama House wedding...
We're about four weeks of dry weather in Sydney at the moment but the start of the year was anything but. In fact, I think Peter and Lizzy's wedding day was the wettest wedding I've ever had. But that doesn't stop the celebrations, the food and wine, good humour, speeches, dancing, or most importantly, the wedding vows.
Peter got ready at his family surrounded by a great many siblings, nephews, nieces and more besides.
Lots of people getting ready everywhere, meanwhile much the same was happening at Lizzy's family home.
There was a lovely ceremony at the Hurstville District Christadelphian Ecclesia. Peter and Lizzy's family and friends played the music. Sam Dando, was the celebrant, and has known Lizzy all her life. How wonderful to be married by a family friend!
The rain continued outside so the family photographs were done at the front of the hall.
Nearby Oatley Park was to be used more openly for the formal's but we were kept undercover, fortunately in a very nice sandstone building!
The reception was held at Panorama House in the large marquee, which normally has the fabulous view over Wollongong but on this day was made, from my point of view, even more special by the clouds that were rolling past us. A truly beautiful event to be able to photograph.
Congratulations Lizzy and Peter. What a great way to kick off your marriage...
