As soon as I received an e-mail from Emily a year ago saying she was planning a surprise wedding I was so excited, this had to be good!!!!

It was actually my first surprise wedding, so how could I not be excited! Emily & Simon only technically got engaged a couple of months out from the wedding date, I don’t know how they kept it a secret for that long. And to make matters worse she had to have her amazing ring sitting there at home to stare at the whole time not being able to wear it. Now that is discipline.  It was all worth it in the end, it was such a magical day. I’ve never seen so many smiles and hugs that big in my life.

As the girls were getting ready we kept peeping out of the blinds watching all of the guests arriving to the amazing Werribee Mansion . Emily was beaming that morning, not nervous just excited to marry the man of her dreams at this stunning location.emily&simon-1 emily&simon-2 01 emily&simon-18 emily&simon-15 emily&simon-32 emily&simon-31 emily&simon-27 emily&simon-34 emily&simon-11 emily&simon-7 emily&simon-5 emily&simon-19 emily&simon-42 emily&simon-26 emily&simon-38 emily&simon-49 emily&simon-40 emily&simon-45 emily&simon-48 emily&simon-51 emily&simon-54 emily&simon-56 emily&simon-57 emily&simon-58 emily&simon-65 emily&simon-66 emily&simon-63 emily&simon-62 emily&simon-69 02 emily&simon-83 emily&simon-76 03 emily&simon-89 emily&simon-94emily&simon-92emily&simon-96As the guests arrived they got directed to where the couple had this beautiful ceremony set up by the lake. I loved some of the faces and reactions people had as soon as they saw it was obviously a wedding!!

I loved hearing the stories of how Emily & Simon met, their love of fine dining and their beloved pets, that couldn’t quite make it to the wedding. (I’m so shattered, I really want to meet your pug one day guys!) The night was all about celebrating with ones they loved most, good food and of course some amazing dancing….
