I have known Melissa her entire life and have witnessed her grow up to become a beautiful, family orientated, independent woman – accordingly it was a huge honour to have been given the priviledge of playing a part in her wedding day. Daniel is a friendly, and hard working young man whose love for Melissa is just obvious. They are both kind, humble and gorgeous inside and out. Together they are perfect!!
Whilst the weather forcast included a 40% of rain, there was only some very light rain at various times throughout the day it certainly did not disrupt any of Melissa & Daniel’s plans and actually made it somewhat cooler than it has been recently making it just perfect!
After they exchanged vows and committed themselves to a life together in Melissa’s parish church, they made their way to Curzon Hall in the Sydney suburb of Marsfield to celebrate with their family & friends. Curzon Hall is a heritage listed sandstone mansion which was built in 1899 and today is surrounded by three enchanting gardens featuring professional landscaping and water features making it ideal for their pre reception photographs.
The reception was held in a modern addition to Curzon Hall, which sits adjacent to the mansion. This room was simply and elegantly decorated with a stunning hanging floral arrangement being a feature. Guests enjoyed canapés and refreshment on the terrace on arrival before being asked to take their seats in the ballroom. A short time later we welcomed the members of the wedding party with the room erupting in loud cheers and a sea of white napkins creating excitement as Melissa and Daniel were introduced as husband and wife!
Two delicious entrees were enjoyed before we heard from the two very proud dads, a little bit of fun, before the main meal was served. Dessert followed, then speeches from the best man, Joshua and ending with Daniel. This was followed by the cutting of the wedding cake before Melissa and Daniel stepped onto the dance floor for their very first dance as a married couple – this was such a beautiful sight to witness, with both of them totally in the moment and virtually oblivious to anything else going on around them – it was a moment they will remember forever. I feel that some of my amateur images below managed to capture this beautiful and special moment that they shared.
It was now party time! With Melissa leading the charge, (she was literally on the dance floor for the entire dancing time) guests danced the night away. Before what seemed like no time at all, it was time to start wrapping up this beautiful celebration of love. The bouquet toss, garter toss, a lovely moment as Melissa and her dad shared a father daughter dance, a farewell dance where all the guests joined them on the dance floor and through a guard of honour to commence the rest of their lives together.
Melissa and Daniel’s wedding day was filled with the warmth and love of their family and friends. Perfect weather, gorgeous people and lots of laughter, certainly is a sure fire recipe for wonderful memories…..and their day had all these elements and much more in abundance!!!
Melissa and Daniel, it was a total joy and pleasure to have been given the opportunity to play a part in your wedding day as your Sydney Wedding MC and Sydney Wedding DJ. Congratulations on finding your true love! Remember to lean on each other’s strengths and forgive each other’s weaknesses and may every day you share deepen and strengthen your love as you accompany one another to your happy ever after! Wishing you both love and happiness always! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!
