Alicia and Steve married in an afternoon wedding ceremony on January 25th 2020 on beautiful Mt Alexander.
The spot is called Powell’s Quarry and it is quite spectacular!
It was a sweet moment for me personally as Alicia was a former student. It is the most wonderful feeling to be a part of the next step in their life journey.
Steve and Alicia have known each other for about 15 years but it was not until they met again as adults that they really connected and a relationship began. Love followed quickly. They celebrated their marriage in a truly romantic and joyous ceremony before family and friends.
Before the Ceremony
When I arrived prior the ceremony the handsome groom and his groomsmen were sitting comfortably under a tree having a cold drink and listening to “tunes.” They were relaxed and having a good time. This set the tone for the afternoon as they chatted and greeted their guests.
The Arrival of the Bride
Alicia and her ladies arrived in style in vintage Fords with a throaty rumble. Nothing quite like the burble of a V8 engine to get attention. The gorgeous bridesmaids stepped down the red carpet before Alicia made her way on the arm of her very proud dad! Her stunning dress had a long train so one bridesmaid followed the bride to assist
A highlight of the ceremony was the Hand fasting ceremony. I made a cord from the colours of the family tartans of both the bride and groom to symbolise the joining of families. The ceremony continued without incident and it didn’t seem long before our couple were being greeted as husband and wife by family and friends.
It was a great honour to be part of their day…even if I am afraid of heights! Thankfully, it was perfect weather and I did not need to worry about being blown off the edge!
