Some more wedding photos taken at The Gables East (?) Malvern (Melbourne)
The first one was taken in the garden at about 4.30 on a freezing Melbourne day- just married. In the background there is a bagpiper and just that music alone stirred the cockles of my old Celtic heart. The Highland Cathedral my favourite - and Marie's wedding was another old family favourite - she even had the bagpiper play Elvis "Love me tender" my mother's favourite and played at Mum's funeral in 1993 when Ali was only 16 - and she remembered! The Celebrant was an ex Melbourne Policeman and he was dignified but also very funny - none of the airy fairy stuff some of the celebrants do - she actually really wanted a priest to do it but because it wasn't in a church she found the next best thing...actually I don't think anyone could have done it as well as this man.
Alison and her Andrew
We made it till the end of the evening - a lot of dancing - the kids like the same music we did - so there was a lot of old rock and some of us were really sore the next day - not Melissa and Alison - just those over a certain vintage!
