Much of the winter in the South West had been wet and cold so I was glad that my couple had planned for a small indoor ceremony for their early September wedding. It seemed that the winter weather wasn’t going anywhere in a hurry. However, to everyone’s delight it was a glorious spring day. The sun was shining on the deep greens of winter in the vineyards, farmland and forest of the Margaret River region. When I arrived at the private residence in Yallingup for Sunny and Jacob’s ceremony it was quickly decided to take in the glorious weather and hold the ceremony on the sun dappled alfresco area of this stunning home.
The ceremony was sweet and simple, with vows made and rings exchanged amongst close friends on a spring afternoon. It was a joy and an honour to be a part of such an intimate occasion and I felt warmly welcomed by everyone present.
After the ceremony I was invited to join in with some photos and enjoy the beginnings of the celebrations. I was delighted when the couple asked me to add my fingerprint to their canvas keepsake (as shown).
It was an honour to officiate this ceremony and be included in the warmth of the day. Wishing Sunny and Jacob much love and light in their future together.
