David and Fiona Meier

It’s not every day that your sister gets married, but it was yesterday!

My sister Fiona married her fiancé David Meier at The Corner Uniting Church.

The service was lovely and it was great to see lot of family and friends there. Following an afternoon tea at the church, we joined the bridal party for photos, then after leaving the kids with a babysitter headed off to the reception at Belair Park Country Club (situated in the grounds of Belair National Park).

The reception was very enjoyable, with musical entertainment provided by Heidy De Ruyter. Some really good speeches were given by the best man, bridesmaids and both fathers of the groom and bride.

My mum (the mother of the bride) came out of retirement to make possibly her last wedding cake, and she did a fantastic job.

Sometime you hear of weddings that don’t go to plan, have awkward moments or end up with the bride (and others) distressed and embarrassed. Maybe you’ve even attended one? I’m pleased to report that yesterday it was nothing like that! Everyone (especially the bride and groom) had a great time, enjoyed themselves immensely and went home knowing that David and Fiona are going to be very happy together.

Fiona and David chose Meg Hansen as their professional photographer (I took the ones you see here!) and Pete Dobré as videographer (who when he’s not videoing wedding can be found taking spectacular photos of Australian landscapes)

A really nice day well described, but I'm surprised dessert didn't get a mention Dave!
