Kate and Jeremy were married at ‘Melross’ Farm, Kangaroo Valley, in the Southern Highlands of NSW. It turned out to be a very wet day (I am amazed that any photos could be taken outside at all), and a last minute shuffle of the wedding ceremony but it didn’t stop Kate and Jeremy from getting married and it didn’t stop them having a wonderful day.
Some thoughtsÂ from the bride and groom –
“When people ask ‘how was your wedding’ the first thing I tell them is ‘wet!’ The rain came down about 20 minutes before the ceremony was due to begin, and it only got heavier and heavier!Â My brother in law held my dress over the first puddle on my way to meet my groom (thank you Rob!) and after that I let the lace and satin soak up the water and mud! Meanwhile my brother Adam held an umbrella over our photographer for some wet weather protection.Â While the weather was a big part of the day, it certainly wasn’t the most important, nor did it dampen our spirits.Â Melross Farm is a stunning property and the rain made all the greenery glisten and the mist surrounding the escarpment was magical.Â Every aspect of our wedding had a personal touch and we have our wonderful families and friends to thank for helping us achieve such a beautiful and personal setting.Â From serviette folding, flower arranging and table settings, to erecting lights, transporting hay bales and building a corn hole set!Â In fact, none of it would have been possible without the generous efforts of our families and friends and we are forever grateful for their support and involvement. One of my favourite memories is of my bridesmaids husband helping with flower arrangements and making paper pom poms!Â And no none will ever forget our sweets table, mainly thanks to the talents of my amazing Aunty Anne who spent so much time and effort in the kitchen preparing handcrafted goodies, and of course our beautiful cake!Â With intermittent breaks in the rain we managed to spend some time outside for our photos, we laughed and reminisced of old times, thenÂ danced the night away with muddy feet, and enjoyed every moment!”
