Inspired Memories: Chris

Polka Dot Bride

When Sally and Chris held their cocktail wedding (see more on Polka Dot Bride), I was quite taken by Chris’ memories of the day.

Chris says, “The day was magic, surreal and perfect, everything went to plan. The beautiful church had the sound of a string quartet playing and a stunning and strikingly attractive bride walking towards me. It was important for our family and closest friends to be there as a symbol of their support, happiness and friendship. The reception was conversational, full of laughs and excitement. I remember somebody telling me, take a step back from the guests and take in the scene. Sally and I did this a couple of times and these were the moments where I just smiled and thought to myself ‘this is surreal’, it was perfect.

The speeches blew everyone away and as Sally stated earlier we were both not particularly fond of speaking. The speeches began with a few nerves but before long, we had everyone in laughter with great stories, ending in loving words for each other. Then it came to the dance, where after weeks of practice with my wonderful wife, I had all the steps in my head ready to play out. A little shaky at the start then swung into action, missing a few steps along the way. I’m sure the guests were too distracted by our swings and turns to notice. Leaving the reception in a boat was peaceful and we looked back at the shores of Watsons Bay to see guests waving goodbye from the balcony and the jetty. This was truly a wonderful and unforgettable night.”
