taronga wedding

This was a fun one, and also reinforced the fact that a large part of (most) weddings is community. When I turned up to Dee's parent's house in the morning, I was greeted by about 25 smiling faces, a large contingent of which had flown in from various parts of the globe to be there.

These two simply love being together. The morning of the wedding, Budz called Dee and she panicked, thinking something had gone awry, but when she picked up the phone she found Budz just wanted to say hello and shoot the breeze, mere hours before the ceremony. 

The day was a perfect mix of tradition and modernity, with a Buddhist ceremony preceeding the civil, as a reminder that some traditions are worth preserving. We then headed off to Taronga for an afternoon, post closing time wander around the grounds. 

Things to keep an eye out for - a stoked first look infront of a big beautiful burnt wall at Eden Gardens, a little dude working a serious strut on the dancefloor, Dee's dad heckling her during the speeches and then immediately getting emotional, elephants.
