John & Sally's wedding day was only a couple of days after we had that huge storm - they were one of the last to get power put back on and they still managed to put on an absolutely beautiful wedding celebration! The weather behaved itself and was lovely the whole day.
First, I went to see the girls getting ready at Peak Homestead in Pigeon Bay, (where John's grandparents raised 9 children!). On the way there were a few slips on the road but everything was well signposted, even telling me how to drive. :)
Sally's wee girl Stella, showed me around the house.
And I found Sally's dad watching The Princess Bride (one of my all time favourite movies - but you don't want your celebrant watching it - "mawwiage"). He was pretending to do his crossword....
Stella was wearing her great-grandmother's locket.
Then I whizzed over to Port Levy for the ceremony at the couple's beautiful home. You should see their view!
First of all though, the setup in the marquee was sooo beautiful!
And that cake... (YES, it's a cake!!!). Beautiful.
This is Darcy, Sally's second son. He's cheeky. And adorable!
And then the girls arrive! First up, it's bridesmaid Emma and Stella. Gorgeous, girls!
They got married at the bottom of the garden. I was always told there were fairies at the bottom of the garden...
Sally's eldest boy Finn, reads beautifully.
Sealing the deal!
Then a quick drive up the farm to this fabulous spot.
And finally down to the Port Levy wharf. What an absolutely gorgeous setting.
Sally and John, it was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with you and your lovely friends and family. All the best for the future. x
