Marisa Magiros & Jason Groake were married & had their reception (complete with straw picnic blankets & hot gormet catered hampers) at “Rosemerrin” a small property near Millthorpe.
Here is the day, as told by Marisa. (Warning, lots of pics!)
Chloe told me (Graham) the day before her wedding: “I’ve never had a single professional photo taken in my life, it’s just not something my family did. It’s all a bit scary. You see, we just don’t look good in photos.” She finished with “if we end up with just one nice image, I’ll be really happy.”
These guys were yet another of those “ooh, we both just hate having our photo taken” couples. I love people like this!
This is a wedding I’ve been looking forward to for years. Not that it’s been a known event for years, but it had to only be a matter of time, before one of the most eligible young ladies in Orange, finally fell in love with one of the many troubadours lining up to leave flowers at her door.
It was also a wedding that was nearly relocated to Sydney after Maree Caltabiano & Mark Coleman’s reception venue informed them only two weeks out, that they were cancelling the booking for their reception with 200 guests. “Here’s a refund for the deposit you paid us six months ago, good bye.”
What a kind lady Alison is. How many high society gals would risk winter snow storms on their wedding day (it did actually snow), just so their future hubby would be able to remember his most important date of each year? Well, Alison did, and the 8th of the 8th 08 it was!
I got the shock of my life when after asking Alison Bennett & Hamish Karrasch if they could find me an assistant from their guest list, they informed me they’d asked Scott Gilbank!
I nearly wet my pants at the embarrassment of having someone come along to carry my camera bag, who was already shooting international print campaigns by the time I’d figured out how to make sure I’d actually loaded film in a camera!
