Piggi Billa, (aboriginal for wombat), was the scene for Wendy & Jake’s spectacular & long awaited day of hope, longing, belonging, & a long enduring love.
Jake’s parents live in a pocket of paradise in our beautiful part of the world & what better place to wed the one you have loved for more than a decade, with a spring garden all around you & only the sounds of birdlife to compete with the celebrants’ words. The family home for Jake, the only son, had been built by his father over a period of ten years. In this time they lived in the shed to the back of the house. For the wedding day the shed had undergone the sort of transformation plastic surgeons charge a fortune for………scroll to the end for a link to a before/after.
The Gowans’ are certainly quite a family to be marrying into & it was obvious Wendy had been happily accepted into their warm embrace for many years. The sheer delight on both their faces is reason enough to believe in the sacrament of marriage & all that it stands for. Enjoy a brief outline of the day ……. I hope it will feel like you are there.
Not just another photobooth ……… this one Jake built from scratch, & even wrote the software !!!! As you do !
The first “betrothed beer”…….. I’ll have some of that !!
This is the shed, miraculously transformed by the magician & ringmaster Sherilee Matthews of Creative Events If you go here you can see a before & after & you will get an idea of just how impressive the transformation was.
My ol’ mate Mick McHugh played & as the sun slowly faded on a breathless, balmy day his voice wafted through the air, like a cooling summers breeze. Nothing could have suited things more.
And to bring the house down Wendy dusted off her voice & performed a rendition of “Come Away with Me” , as a surprise for her man & everyone in attendance.
Thanks for having us there, Wendy & Jake, & for inviting us into your families. It was an unforgettable day.
I know your lives & love will be long & meaningful.
