Julia & Bryce
They say that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. I don’t know who “they” are, but “they” should know that rain on your wedding day means that best laid plans have to go out the window and Plan Bs have to fall into place STAT. Unless, that is, you’re mid way through a ceremony and the heavens open up and dump torrential rain on you and your 150+ guests. Now most brides would lose it at this point, but not Julia. And so begins my round up of one of my favourite weddings yet.
Julia and Bryce are absolute sweethearts and cool kids all round. They never stop smiling around each other and both adore their gorgeous dog Kobe. Kobe also played a key role as ring bearer in their ceremony; he even wore a tie.
Their ceremony took place at O’Shea’s Crossing at Somerset Dam and as we began we noticed dark clouds looming. Mid way through it began spitting, then raining, then it just bucketed down with that sort of rain that drenches you in about 5 seconds. Julia & Bryce weren’t going to let a downpour stop their ceremony and so huddled under umbrellas I got to marry these two sweethearts. A personal highlight of mine was when Bryce surprised Julia with a stunning eternity ring and she loudly swore in excitement. These are my kind of people.
As their guests headed back to Coronation Hall to feast Pepe’s Mexican and donuts, the bridal party all went to try off. Every available hair dryer was used to dry suits, hair and dresses. Lucky I had packed a spare frock to drive home in!
While they arrived back at the hall a little bit later than planned to celebrate their wedding; they both looked incredible as they partied the night away.
Thanks again for inviting me to share in your special day – I get butterflies thinking about it now!
