On the eve of of their wedding Takako and Owen took Takakoâ€™s family from Tokyo for a ferry ride over to Watsonâ€™s Bay and walk along the foreshore finishing off with an amazing seafood dinner at Doyles Restaurant. It was a beautiful relaxed walk with only a few phone calls along the way with last minute wedding organising for Owen and Takako. The evening was so relaxed and I canâ€™t think of a better way for a couple to spend the eve of their wedding day. I loved sharing this time with the family and learning a little Japanese the way. We had a few laughs pointing to things and exchanging the names in English and Japanese and trying to speak a little of each others language.
(In the coming week I will share the wedding day of Takako and Owen here on my blog – stay tuned.)
