A summer wedding

The cut

Another quick one, just to proudly announce the marriage of my brother Francis to his beautiful new bride Joelle. They were married this past weekend here in Perth. It was a wonderfully unique ceremony (they both work in media, so there was plenty of music and videos playing throughout), an excellent reception lunch (organised by Mum with the help of a small army of volunteers), and some eloquent, funny and emotional toasting (accompanied by a pleasant Australian sparkling sourced by yours truly).


The moment says it all really.

Touch ups

The only problem was that it was so hot (41 C in Perth that day, with little to no breeze), that the makeup artist (aka the lovely Sharon) had a hard time making sure the sweat from the grooms face didn’t wipe off all of her hard work…


Still, nothing that a refreshing minty mojito couldn’t fix.

It was a great day and night, and I wish them all the best for their new life together.

Soppy post over… be assured, this blog will return to it’s usual sarcastic self shortly.

  1. Hi Matt just found you on Bron’s Pav post. Have added you to my Aussie food blogs list. I really miss that 41 degree weather. It’s raining here again today!

  2. Thanks Bron, Barbara, and Amelita, it was a lovely day for all concerned.

    Barbara, anytime you feel like swapping your weather for mine, just let me know. As a born and bred kiwi I often long for a bit of cool weather and the odd snow storm to come through. I will trade you a 41C for a 10C anytime you like… Or else we can just wait til climate change has full kicked in and we’re all freezing one day and boiling the next… :)
