A very Aussie wedding




My uncle got married out at his property in Yass on the weekend. The bride (and her ring-bearing Border Collie) arrived on horseback and wore complementary Driza-bones. It was certainly a different wedding, but was free of the pretentiousness evident in so many other weddings I've been to. They really did just want to share their ceremony with friends, and then celebrate being married. We headed into the Memorial Hall later for a spit roast and an Elvis performer (which was Lily's favourite part of the day - after getting over her disappointment that the bride didn't wear a big white dress) and lots of catching up with family. A lovely day!
