All of my gigs are special but some are just that little bit more so. The wedding of Matt and Claire for example is one of my faves as they are local to my home town and well, they just both absolutely loved having ‘Dormy’ for their wedding day.
‘Dormy’ and my day started with the pick-up of Matt and his mates from Ocean Grove and we then had a great ‘Kombi Cruise’ in the local area before travelling out to the awesome ‘Jack Rabbit Vineyard’, @jackrabbitvineyard . Matt was a bit concerned about the weather, it was very windy and rather chilly, and a decision was made to move the ceremony up to the deck and the amazing crew from Jack Rabbit just made it all happen, wow.
Meanwhile ‘Dormy’ and I headed back to OG to collect the beautiful Claire and her gorgeous ladies and you would be hard pressed to meet some nicer people and it was indeed a real pleasure to spend some time with them. I had to of course do a ‘mainy’ to show off Claire before we headed over to Jack Rabbit for the big reveal.
What followed was a wonderful ceremony officiated by one of my all time favourite Celebrants the amazing Nicole Penning, Nicole Penning Celebrant Services – | Geelong Wedding Celebrant . Everything was there on the day, humour, stories, tears of joy and most of all love. And ‘Kombi Karma’ was with them as the sun came out and shone upon them as they completed their ‘I Do’s’ and their first kiss as a married couple.
After family photos Matt and Claire definitely wanted to have photos together with ‘Dormy’, despite the rather cold and fresh windy conditions and as you can see below some of the pics are truly awesome, even for a gumby photographer like me. Helps to have a very photogenic couple!
It was then time for ‘Dormy’ and I to head home however we came back later that night to take the still very happy but tired Matt and Claire to their wedding night accommodations.
Thank you so much Matt and Claire for letting me share in your wedding day and I wish you both much love, joy, health and happiness and of course continued great ‘Kombi Karma’ in your lives together.
