They love cooking and trying different cuisines, so it was no surprise when Paris and Al brought together all the right ingredients to cook up an amazing wedding!
I left Sydney in the pouring rain but by the time I started the descent from the freeway to the Sea Cliff Bridge, the skies were clearing, and when I arrived at Sharkey’s Beach in Coledale, the sun was peeking through the clouds.
The first thing I saw was the most beautiful and original focal point for the ceremony – an antique mantlepiece covered with flowers, overlooking the beach. It was all down to Paris’ hard work and creativity. It was the last thing you’d expect to see there, and so it made a really striking impression.
It was the perfect spot for their wedding – many an evening has been spent here watching the sun go down with a bottle of wine – and it’s also where Al proposed.
The ceremony was very relaxed, full of love and laughter, and their love of sharing food with friends was a recurring theme. (And with Al being a chef, you knew the party afterwards was going to be yummy). Their vows to one another really hit the spot. When friends start giggling and wiping away a tear in equal measure, you know you’ve got it right.
We dodged a couple of light showers but that meant they were married under a rainbow. I loved how Paris wiggled with joy when I declared them to be husband and wife – one of many lovely moments.
