There are three rings to a marriage March 16, 2008

Filed under: Weddings — siaoyue @ 8:12 am

As mentioned in the earlier posts, one of the major highlights of my trip was attending cousin Mandy and Simon’s wedding in a winery in Red Hill

The day began with us meeting at Federation Square to take the bus to Montalto Estate in Redhill.

Obviously 9.30am is a wee bit too early for Brother to begin his day as can be seen below, only adjisting his tie properly at the pick up area.

In Uncle Paul’s birlliant speech, he mentioned ‘ There are 3 rings to a marriage:- the engagement ring, the wedding ring and the suffer-ing.’  How true is that 🙂

Have you ever seen such a long limo.  Note to my ‘jee muis’ – you don’t have to buy me jewellery for my wedding (if that day ever comes) , just chip in to rent us all a limo for AUD600 per hour!

It has truly been a memorable day:- magnificient scenery, happy faces, fantastic food, romantic environment, live band + singing & brilliant speeches.
