The big day finally arrived for Maria and Stan. Mostly Sunny was the forecast for the day — looking good. Little did we know that the full heat of the harsh Australian summer would be the order of the day.
At 6:00am , my crew started arriving at my place. As was expected of me, I had to make coffee (lattes) for them as they seem to enjoy what I make. Maybe because it is free 🙂
We proceeded to RG’s Hairdresser at St. Marys to meet up with Maria and her maid-of-honour Julianna. The bride seems well relaxed and very excited.
Stan arrived first driving a Ferrari. Whoa! I bet everybody was looking at him 🙂 What a lucky guy.
A white carpet was laid down the aisle just before for the bride marched in. This is the first time I’ve seen one in a ceremony — very nice.
The formal shoot of the bridal party took place at Nurragingy Reserve. It is the middle of the afternoon at around 12:30pm. As you guess it, it was very HOT! Maria was specially having a hard time as her dress is very uncomfortable. The dress is quite long and requires another person to hold the extended tail — which fell unto Stan to do. Nevertheless, she soldiered on like a good trooper. Despite the unbearable conditions, Maria and Stan did not give up. I really admired them for this.
The reception took place at St Stephens Hall at Plumpton. It was a big gathering — 500+ guests!
The couple organised plenty of shows to entertain the guests. It was an event filled with singing and dancing. How I wish I was just a guest! That way, i could have fully watched the shows. it was very entertaining.
