Wedding of Dominica and Jason

Yesterday, we were treated to the fun and joy of Dominica and Jason's wedding. The ceremony was at the Melbourne Town Hall, and upon arrival we were directed to one of the balconies of the chambers, where the ceremony was held.

Meeting up with Dan as we walked in, Jane, Majid and I took our places, as we spotted Evie downstairs, camera ready. The groom took his place, and soon Dominica made her entrance - after a trail of little attendants, head fairy Jasmin, and her bridesmaids.

Dom and Jason were married by a celebrant, who also performed magic tricks, which added flair, and some symbolic touches throughout. They also had a sand bottle made during the service, by family from far and wide, as a symbol of their union of family.

After being presented with a very happy newly married couple, the gathered met outside amidst the busy Melbourne streets for a group photo - before boarding a red double decker bus for a trip down to St Kilda. Drinks and music filled the bus, as guests and bridal party mingled, with sunny Melbourne passing us by.

The bridal party had photos taken along the Brighton bath houses, as the wedding guests carried on with champagne, at the beach. The trip back to town was rowdy, with karaoke in full swing - lots of laughs!

The bus bought us to the Royal Botanical Gardens, where we wandered through to The Terrace for the reception. Drinks and canapes in the sun, on the shore of the lake with the city as our backdrop, before the bride and groom were ready to arrive. As we were seated, tabled shuffled, I was assigned my spot next to Amanthi, from Skipping Vinegar Girl.

Speeches, as were to be expected from our Dom, were long, funny and entertaining. The groom, and bride, so sweet - and Dom had written a song which she performed for Jason. Dancing and laughter filled the night, before many of the guests headed to The Deck for after wedding drinks.

What a gorgeous and fun day! Big special good wishes to Dom, Jason, and their Jasmin.
