‘Bec and Pat are very casual people’ one of their guests told me as we walked into their reception ‘they just like to kick back and take their time with things!’
And so, Bec and Pat did their wedding their way – a mid-morning ceremony at the family church, followed by a quick couple of bridal party portraits en route to the celebration that stretched long from afternoon to evening. Courses of food rolled out during the long lunch, guests shared plates and bottles of wine and laughs across the broad timber tables.
From sitting on Bec’s late Grandma’s couch remembering the amazing lady she was in the morning, through to Pat (a man of few words) giving the most beautiful speech and bringing the house down, their day was as Bec-and-Pat-flavoured as any wedding day could be; so perfectly ‘them’ from start to finish.
The celebration and the time with their nearest and dearest was so important. The dress code was ‘black tie and dancing shoes’ and we’re preeetttty sure you’ll see why in just a second…
