A Lyrebird Falls Wedding

Bonnie and Bill are truly lovely people and I feel honoured to have played a small part in their wedding day. They clearly have a deep respect for one another and the people around them, and their wedding day was evidence of this; they thought carefully about how to include their nearest and dearest in their special day. Their ceremony was beautifully thought out, and showed them as individuals and as a couple, including what they value and cherish in one another.

When I asked Bonnie and Bill what was the standout moment during their wedding day, the following was one of their responses.

During the reception we took the opportunity to sit outside together just the two of us. With all of the formalities of the day completed, it was very special to have a moment that just belonged to us. I sat on Bill’s knee and we looked in at the rest of the guests all having a great time, and we were able to feel proud that we’d worked so hard to ensure people enjoyed themselves.

Even on their own wedding day their thoughts were about the enjoyment of their guests. How lovely is that?
The wedding ceremony and reception was at Lyrebird Falls in the Dandenongs. It was like being in your own private rainforest tucked away on the outskirts of Melbourne! The reception included a photo booth, which was lots of fun and was a hit with all of the guests. Bonnie and Bill even arranged babysitters so that the older guests could take a break and enjoy the fun of the evening.
