They’d come from different parts of the globe, more than four hundred guests, sat in Paddington at Mike and Mercie’s elegant Centennial Park wedding ceremony cheering them on, applauding their love, and rejoicing with their family.
And they all sang together too. That was great, listening to so many voices ring out. Often in groups everyone goes quiet. But not this time.
The day had begun much earlier, calling in to see the boys at Epping, coping exceptionally well, with their major decision turning into a question of breakfast choices. Then to see Mercie and her family at Wahroonga where the preparation was well underway.
Mercie emerged in her dress and everyone collectively stood back and oohed, and snapped lots of shots on cameras and phones.
After the ceremony, Mike and Mercie wandered down the aisle, to the front door, held up their hands and went straight back in. It had earlier been decided to do group and family shots inside – so we did. A tall ladder was found so that I could do that big group shot with everyone in it. That worked quite nicely.
The bridal party headed out for some elegant Centennial Park wedding photos, just across the road from the church, for some shots before a family tea ceremony at World Square.
Family members were formally introduced to Mike and Mercie, tea was drunk, gifts and money exchanged, and lots of hugging verified the strong connections that come with marriage.
Congratulations Mike and Mercie.
