Jo and David dreamed of a Sydney wedding, complete with a bluebird day, sparkling waters and the Opera House glimmering in the distance to grace their photos to send home to family in dreary UK. Nothing ever goes to plan now does it??? The marriage of Jo and David today was better than any plan they had for the weather. After arriving from Cockatoo Island by water taxi, they had a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony officiated with the usual grace by Lillian Lyon. Attended by Jo’s sister Clair all the way from the UK, along with David’s brother Andrew from Glasgow and friends Michelle & Steve from Melbourne, it was one of the most intimate and sincere marriages I’ve been to in a long time.
But perhaps the most important attendant of all is their 3yr old son Sam. Jo & David met on match.com in the UK, then decided the Australian weather was more to their likeing (no, that’s not a joke) and so they travelled to Sydney, fell in love with the place and stayed. Along comes Sam and their family was begun. Today they embarked on a new journey, all three of them together.
