Be as prepared as you can but don’t stress if all doesn’t go to plan!!!!

Sometimes all the planning in the world can’t control everything! Don’t worry there is always a solution to everything…so I believe!!!

Easter has been a great break and what a perfect time as well for a wedding-I loved being the celebrant for Ryan and Roxy-a fun couple who have a great sense of humour which is the attitude required when well laid plans actually took a turn! Like all big and important occasions we can control so many parts BUT there are some parts that are out of our control and in this case it was a severe thunder storm that hit quickly and hard!

I had already set up at the beautifully prepared “vintage” inspired stage complete with fresh flowers in the window boxes and hay bales. Within 15 minutes the storm hit and I had just made the call to the 120 guests to quickly take cover under a big farm shed-a structure without walls! I mention this as the rain was literally horizontal and there was no escaping getting completely drenched! I was huddled with the groomsmen and we all could not believe the ferocity of this storm-I was busy protecting the legal documents and my husband, Scotty , was bent over our expensive PA sound system-I looked over to see the guy cooking the meat on spit trying to move it as the rain extinguished his flames-I think you get the picture-thank God the bride had not arrived yet and rang through to check on what to do. Being an amazing couple they did not let this spoil their day. We all dried off, re set the wedding ceremony area and we had a beautiful heartfelt ceremony. The weather settled and everyone went on to have a fantastic time. What a great Easter!
