It was unusually hot and humid as I prepared for Lisa and Ben’s big day. A thunderstorm had been threatening for a few days now, but it seemed (fingers crossed) that the weather would hold off for the late afternoon ceremony time.
The setup at Gnarabup Beach, (near Margaret River) was simple and stylish, and all that was required with such a breathtaking location. The dramatic cloud formations, along with the sparkling water and the rock edged beach cove made for a perfect scene as the guests gathered to welcome the bridal party to the ceremony.
Being a ‘barefoot beach wedding’, the guests were encouraged to leave their shoes at the stairs and enjoy the sand beneath their feet. The bridesmaid followed by the bride making their entrance, and flinging off her shoes at the bottom of the stairs was a great start to a relaxed wedding.
The ceremony that followed was simple and sweet, with a highlight being the ring-bearer Toby, a very well behaved and loved dog who had the rings tied around his collar complete with a smart bow tie.
The threatening thunderstorm provided a beautiful skyline, and an amazing sunset that night. A perfect start to married life for this gorgeous couple. Thanks to Lisa and Ben for allowing me to share their story. It was an honour to be their celebrant!
