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!
