Christine and Jason - Friday 2nd October 2009

October began with a bang for us with three weddings over the first weekend. The first being the marriage of Christine and Jason on the Friday.

We arrived at Christine's family home on Friday morning to find her family in high spirits and quite relaxed. With a dust storm forecast we warned Christine that her dress might be red by the end of the day and it was like water off a duck's back. This set the tone for the day which was casual and easy going.

The ceremony was held at the chapel of Sommerville House. The chapel has a simple elegance and the perfect choice for Christine and Jason; particulary seeing as how Christine was a former student at the school. A former teacher of Christine's was playing in the string quartet (who performed beautifully). After a lovely ceremony and a few family photos, we all headed to the Gallery of Modern Art for the location shots.

GOMA is great fun for photos and we just couldn't visit there without taking advantage of the Las Vegas style sign they currently have erected to promote their latest exhibition. Christine, Jason and their bridal party enjoyed drinks and nibbles on the lawn of GOMA in between photos. It was a great atmosphere and the predicted dust storm held off.

Soon enough, it was off to Victoria Park Golf Course for the reception and the last few photos. Jason and Christine had made some excellent selections with their pre-recption entertainment (a jazzy live band) and their pre-dinner nibbles were delicious and plentiful. A huge thumbs up to Vic Park Golf Club staff who went out of their way to look after us photographers also. The room looked fantastic and Christine and Jason had created a great atmosphere to enjoy with their friends and family.

Congratulations to Christine and Jason on your marriage and we look forward to catching up with you both soon.
