What do you do when on your wedding day there are icy cold gale force winds, loss of power at the venue (thankfully there was a generator), your marquee almost gets blown away and just to make it more interesting it buckets down with rain the night before? Well most couples would potentially freak out, but not Megan and Marcus, they were cooler than cucumbers and took it all in their stride.
Megan and Marcus met at high school. Marcus left in year eleven to commence an apprenticeship and it was not until a few years later that Marcus messaged Megan on Facebook. They began talking and going out. Megan didn’t think much of it until the 7th September 2013 when he officially confirmed that they were dating – six years later on this very day, they were exchanging vows and becoming husband and wife! Of course before this, there was the proposal on the beach at sunset in Surfer’s Paradise during a weekend away where Megan accepted with a big YES even before Marcus had finished asking 🙂
So here we were at Suzarosa, a stunning property set on 8 acres and located in a quiet part of the Blue Mountains, between Bilpin and Mount Tomah with panoramic views over Wollemi National Park. Due to the strong winds and cold temperature that it brought with it, it was decided to move the wedding ceremony indoors. Officiated by Vivienne Warren, Megan and Marcus became one during a simple, but beautiful ceremony. Following the ceremony, whilst our newlyweds had various photographs taken by the very talented Anne Marie Yuen Photography, guests adjourned to the Marquee for drinks, nibbles and wonderful conversation.
A little while later, everybody welcomed Megan, Marcus and their wedding party into the Marquee and whilst some may say that the howling of the wind and flapping of the Marquee made it a little challenging, I beg to differ and would prefer to say that it made the wedding very unique. We heard beautiful and humourous speeches from Megan’s dad Georg, Marcus’ mum, Honnie, Maid of Honour, Cassie and words from Corey, the Best Man.
This was followed by some fun as each table completed an activity prior to being able to proceed to the delicious buffet prepared by PJ’s Catering Service. Next we heard some wonderful messages from some who were unable to attend. A little more fun with the newlywed game, a dance off with a twist, and the centrepiece giveaway which included everybody – all lots of fun and laughter filled the marquee.
The cutting of the wedding cake, Dessert and it was time for Megan and Marcus’ first dance as a married couple – such a beautiful moment. The wedding party and guests then joined in to help Megan and Marcus celebrate!! As the night progressed, it did get colder and more icy cold, but most partied on regardless.
Megan and Marcus, from our first conversation I felt a connection, then meeting you both, I not only felt the connection, but also saw that you both also have a deep connection. I loved hearing your love story, about your first kiss, the proposal, our progress meetings, speaking with you on the phone and being truly honoured to be able to share in your wedding day! Whilst conditions were not ideal and not what you were hoping for, you made the best of it and did not let it impact your wedding day which goes a long way to providing insight into how you will both handle things in your marriage. After all this, I am absolutely certain that no matter what your love will prevail. Thank you so much for your trust as your Blue Mountains Wedding MC and Blue Mountains Wedding DJ, it was a total pleasure getting to know you both and playing a part in your wedding. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!
