Wedding Reception | 3 May 2014| Rebekah & Andrew Edwards | Centennial Vineyards, Bowral, Southern Highlands

by

Rebekah and Andrew met way back in 2008 through friends. In early December 2012 whilst bush walking in the Blue Mountains, Andrew surprised Rebekah with asking her to be his wife. Fast forward to 3 May 2014, on what turned out to be quite a cold and chilly Southern Highlands day, Rebekah & Andrew became Mr & Mrs Edwards at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Berrima.

This beautiful couple chose to celebrate their marriage at Centennial Vineyards. When guests arrived they were greeted by a warm venue, canapés and welcoming drinks, but also the warmth of Rebekah and Andrew’s love. The celebration commenced with great applause as we welcomed the parents and members of the wedding party. A short welcome from Rebekah, followed by heartfelt speeches from the Dad’s, Tony and Peter, before guests were served a delicious entrée.

A little bit of fun with the newly-wed game, followed by the main meal, centrepiece give-away, speeches from Bestman, Mathew and Andrew, the cutting of the cake, dessert and it was time for Rebekah and Andrew’s first dance. This was a beautiful moment, dancing to a special edit of Michael Buble’s, Everything, it was full of love and lots of feeling – it was as if they were one.

The guests then flocked to the dance floor and moved and grooved to hits both old and new. Of course Rebekah and Andrew were there leading the way. In what seemed like no time at all, it was time to wind things up with the bouquet toss, garter toss, parent dance and then a farewell dance. Guests then formed a guard of honour for Rebekah and Andrew to depart through.

When I first met Rebekah and Andrew about a year ago, they told me of their plans for a simple, relaxed and fun wedding that involved lots of personalised details to make the day their own. I could tell instantly that they were perfect for each other and I loved hearing about their plans. So many beautiful details were present at this wedding.. plus a whole lot of laughter and love. I enjoyed every moment of this beautiful day. Rebekah and Andrew, thank you for your trust in allowing me to be a part of your wedding day as your Southern Highlands Wedding DJ & MC, it was an honour to be there and witness your beautiful love for each other, the love you have for your family and friends….and the love they all have for you both in return. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

    Led Zeppelin, Warrant, Parachute Youth, and Michael Buble? Oh my, such good taste in music! When celebrating a wedding, other than the event location and all that jazz, having a good choice in music sets the mood for the whole celebration, as it reflects the personality of the couple.
