So a big challenge for brides & grooms choosing a wedding date 6 months in advance is “What’s the weather going to be like?” - Especially in Melbourne with it’s proverbial ‘Four Seasons in One Day’, it’s a really stressful call. So imagine if your actual occupation was a Long-Term Weather Forcaster….whoo pressure! So this was the situation that Sarah found herself in when planning her wedding to Matt last year. Jan / Feb? Too hot! March? Could be lovely, could have a cold snap… really it was always going to be a roll of the dice in this temperamental city! So to have chosen the perfect day for their garden wedding must mean that Sarah is damn good at her job. Slightly cloudy, perfect temperature – not too hot, not too cold…Goldilocks herself would be very happy with that outcome.
And the wedding itself… I’m not one to play favourites, but this would have to be in my top five weddings EVER. Think ‘picnic / garden party, and “Oh, let’s have a little wedding ceremony in the middle of it!”. Giant Jenga, boules, croquet, Pims on tap, it was relaxed and fun, and so ‘real’. As the afternoon turned to evening, the party moved on to the nearby Friends of Mine cafe in Richmond for drinks, dinner, and dancing. Did I say dancing??? Considering these guys met at a swing dancing class there was the most amazing dancefloor action I have ever seen! Swirling skirts, fancy footwork, and a divine cake made entirely by the bride herself. This is why I love my job!
