Although I’m starting to feel like a Tourism Blog, when I share photos of our little corner of the world – You all love it! So here I am again, after the most divine weekend spent down on The Great Ocean Road. Lorne to be specific. I’d only ever driven through this town, so was interested to see what was so special that my brother-in-law and his now wife decided to hold their wedding there – two and a half hours drive from home?
Could it be the coastline? Well, yes! The Great Ocean Road is one of the most iconic travelling routes in Victoria, and it is certainly worth the trip. We arrived the day before the wedding and stayed in a gorgeous big house overlooking the ocean with some of my husband’s family.
And on the big day, it was all systems GO to get this crowd sorted! I had two flower girls hairstyles to sort, as well as my mother-in-law’s make up and hair – and my own. Was quite the effort!
In what was the most gorgeous setting imaginable, we were thrilled to witness the “I do’s” and the kids had a ball being a part of the wedding party.
My littlest man did a fabulous job not losing the rings!
But found the whole thing exhausting!
And these two beauties did a great job too!
This big kid? Well, he was in charge of the music and was freaking out about stuffing it up – but he too got through unscathed. When do they stop growing????
I think it’s fair to say we were glad we booked the house a couple of extra days after the wedding. This was the amazing view from the balcony. It was very easy to relax. And just over the road and down the hill was where the wedding ceremony was!
The boys got to fit in some fishing off the spectacular pier….
Whilst us girls watched (and I took a million photos), before I took them down to the beach for a swim. If you are ever travelling to Victoria, pencil in a few days to travel down this way, it truly is beautiful.
And last but not least – I finally got to hand over this quilt! I was all “secret squirrel” about the intended recipients, because it was for the newly married couple! Happy days!
Have no fear – I’ll be back to my usual schedule tomorrow – with some DIVINE Wee Wander cushions I whipped up today!
