Tying the Knot with Savoir Faire

Recently one of my nieces was married back home in Australia. Unfortunately I could not attend the wedding, on account of distance and time etc etc. From what I have heard from various family members it was a wonderful wedddng.

However as you can see it was slightly different! My niece hails from a very small town in the middle of nowhere back home. She can also be a bit of a tomboy and very headstrong. There was no question as to where she wanted to be married and as to how.

The wedding took place in a paddock about 10 miles from the town next to railway line, with the reception being held in a shearing shed! Egads everyone is saying! What are they like down under?

However from the photographs, it looks fabulous. It is nice to see a couple who can throw some of the prevailing conventionality of a big budget wedding out the window and do it their own way with savoir faire!


  1. I would say that such a wedding is the first sign that your niece will have a healthy and happy marriage. Best wishes and congratulations to them!

  2. They make a beautiful couple but it is a shame they could not afford the train fare to go on their honeymoon.

  7. David, this wedding sounds wonderful. Big, over the top weddings are passe in my opinion.
    I love the idea of a country wedding.

  8. Many thanks all for your comments. I like things that stretch the bounds of coventionality and these two did with flair!
