You would have though middle of January would have been a safe bet for a garden wedding, but then again this was Melbourne where it’s the norm to experience four seasons in one day.
Obviously we had bought the Queensland rains and not the famous Queensland sunshine with us on the trip down and the morning of Sonia and Brett’s wedding day was bucketing down. Luckily nothing could phase these two, despite the heavy rain they were getting married! As a wise man once said “The bride, the groom and the celebrant – that’s all you need”Fortunately for Sonia and Brett, their family and friends were happy to brave the torrential rain to join them under the small marquee in the beautiful gardens of Cloudehill Nursery & Gardens in the Dandenongs.
With everyone cocooned under the marquee, the rain continued to pitterpatter on the canvas roof as Sonia and Brett share their words of love and commitment. After congratulations they braved the soggy grass and misty air to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and you can see the wonderful images captured by Sarah and Kim from Red Telegram. And in true Melbourne fashion, by the time the afternoon reception got underway at Wild Oak Restaurant in Olinda, the rain had cleared and warm summer sun appeared to oversee the celebrations.
Congratulations Sonia and Brett – come rain, hail or shine may you always be surrounded with love, happiness and family, whatever the weather.
