1920s Cocktail Real Life Wedding


Mya & Dominic Anlezark • 22nd November, 2008 • 1920s Cocktail • Newacton Pavilion ACT

Mya and Dominic planned to celebrate their wedding in balmy November weather - instead they had to make the most of a frosty cold front invading their wedding! Despite the weather Mya and Dominic had a wonderful day full of love and joy and their superb photographer Dan O'Day captured all the details. Mya shares their day with us...




We chose a November date for our big day, thinking that it would be warm. But it was cold, windy and rainy. There was even a fall of snow on the Brindabellas.

The boys dressed at our home, and we girls got ready at a hotel. At 3:50pm, I had to make the call as to whether our ceremony would be held inside, or outside as we had planned. I decided it would be outside and didn’t regret it. As I started to walk out to the courtyard, gusts of wind dusted everyone in sleet. But as I walked down the path towards Dom, the clouds cleared and the sun came out and stayed out for the whole ceremony. In front of all of our much loved family and friends, we stood together under a huge oak tree and proclaimed our love for each other.



After the ceremony, we went to several different locations for our photo-shoot. Although the weather got worse and worse, we had a ball taking the shots and we are so happy with them.

Meanwhile, back at the reception venue our guests were having a swing dance lesson. When we arrived, we were given a very warm welcome, and champagne, a tapas degustation and much laughter and mingling followed. Heartfelt speeches were made, the cake was cut and we danced our bridal swing. Everyone joined in and we all continued dancing to our fantastic jazz band.



The atmosphere was amazing and the cold weather bought everyone closer. Not exactly as we had planned weather wise, but we would not change it for the world.
