This day stays with me.

Apart from on the phone and e-mail, I only just met Seb & Kristy the day before, for 10 minutes, while I was driving scouting locations just up north of Noosa. An area that I had never been to before. But the 10 minutes was enough to connect – and then they were off inside the church in Pomona for the rehearsal. I had the feeling that I was in the right place and in the right time.

Maybe there were echoes with parts of my own life. The moving to a new place in the country from the city to set up a life. I understood and loved what they were doing – they had space, trees and pigs. They had farm books, dogs, adventure and connection. I was totally drawn in.

I was not the only one. Friends and family on the wedding day were all involved, sharing and giving. Tears hung in my eyes at the sheer beauty of it all and still they live there. I thank Seb & Kristy, and Angela & Joe, and Sam & Maria, and Maria and Rob, and Tony and Santina, and Sam, and Christos & Loukia and all the rest of their family and friends – for a truly beautiful wedding and, as Pooh would say, a day full of wonderful.
