I have been quiet for a little while of late because I have been contemplating my wedding which occurred on the 23rd of January, a Thursday afternoon affair.
We had a wonderful day that was so fuss free we enjoyed every single moment of it. Our marriage celebrant was sensational. She put us and our families totally at ease and kept the whole ceremony a very happy and joyous occasion.
It was even worth wearing a dress and high heels for the first time in years 😀 Though the high heels came off as soon as we finished our high tea at the little top notch restaurant Print Hall we went to after the ceremony. I had cleverly hidden some stylish red flats in our camera case and they felt wonderful to wear and walk about a kilometre back to our hotel in.
Jason and I had been engaged for 14-15 years. I procrastinated a lot about getting married. Maybe because I’d been married once before and that hadn’t worked out. I told myself I was happy with the status quo even though Jason kept hankering at me to get married. Whatever the reasons I had, I finally came to the point where I realised I never wanted to be away or separated from Jason as he’s my best friend, lover, step-father to my two grown up girls and an all round perfect gentleman for me 😀
This happy snap was taken by our marvellous wedding celebrant Jacqueline and she had us all wave at the camera which I thought was lovely. A most happy day, enjoyed by all 😀
These are the two sides of our Riesling high tea menu. It was fabulous to have a matching wine chosen for me for each stage of the high tea. I had the Pewsey Vale ‘Contours’ 2007, Eden Valley as my dry Riesling that went oh so beautifully with the Goats curd level.
I had the Tunkalilla Vineyard 2008 Oregon as my off dry Riesling which married beautifully with the confit of white rabbit and rhubarb level.
The sweet Riesling I chose was the Mount Horrocks “Cordon Cut” 375ml 2013, Clare Valley and that washed down well the little lemon meringue tarts and especially the gorgonzola and native honey, absolutely divine!
I sound like Patsy from Ab Fab there but I could’ve drunk that last wine all afternoon 😀
All in all, a wonderful afternoon that didn’t cost the farm, hit all the happy spots in service and family joy and that could only have been improved by having my sister and brother and nieces and nephew come over from Tasmania and Denmark to join in. Loved it all 🙂
Thanks for sharing our special day.
