Mr & Mrs (The new & improved) Oakley!
Why are you wondering about the title ...'new & improved' WELL Andrew (the handsome groom) has a sister, Kate (obviously her last name is Oakley too and she is the ORIGINAL) & wait for it... his absolutely stunning bride KATE so this is a running joke between the family, and i think will continue for the rest of their lives!
So the super special day started with quite a few goosebumps & freezing legs as the wedding venue (Sylvan Glen country Estate) Located down the Hume and then a few k's of dirt to Penrose was a chilling 9 degrees all day!!!
The cold couldn't dampen the spirits of the amazing bridal party, they battled the cold wind & rain. Absolute troopers they all were!
The day started of really relaxing and whilst the girls got their hair & make up done, they boys were off playing golf. Then it got a little exciting when the girls were poppin' bottles as the boys played pool.
Sylvan Glen is an amazing venue and Kate & Andrew stayed there for the weekend with the bridal party and their family.
I must say the bond between the lads & lass's of the day was truly amazing to see that they have so much love and respect for all & they kindness shown towards each other was really incredible to witness.
The rain held off for the short, but very sweet ceremony & then the brollies were out for the 'pro' shots!
So a race between the golf buggies to get the images taken & then back to the reception for food and drinks!
The food was absolutely delightful, and i think (from where i looked anyhow!) everyone was super full & very content. The drinks were flowing & lots of dancing followed by the amazing band THE INCIDENTALS played some sick tunes!
(My favourite was Nirvana btw)
A spectacular 'wave' of goodbye with a many large sparklers to end the fantastic night!
Congratulations Kate & Andrew, i love your love and the beautiful bond that you guys have & i sincerely wish you all the happiness for the rest of your lives.
(and her sidekick (also wife) for the day Kylie !)
