A Wedding at Bloomfield Cottage

Last weekend was our first wedding at Bloomfield Cottage!  It was only a small gathering as the actual ceremony was in Thailand a few weeks ago. However, for all their relatives that couldn`t make it O/seas, and to actually make it legal in Australia, a small ceremony was performed right here in our beautiful garden setting.

And no - the bride didn`t wear her wedding gown for us, but looked lovely in a soft flowing floral - perfect for a garden wedding. There was quite a bit of cleaning (and de cob-webbing), moving of furniture and potted plants, mowing and watering to keep everything lush for the day in our hot weather. Only days earlier we had a scorcher reaching 42 degrees! 

The tables are set and guests are starting to arrive.

The bride and groom supplied a lovely High Tea style luncheon and as the day warmed, so the Champagne and beer flowed. The gardens were looking lovely even though the first flush of roses had finished. There were still plenty of spot flowering roses though, with Weeping Dorothy Perkins - surrounded by The Fairy roses still showing off beautifully. And of course the stunning Cape Chestnut - Calodendrum was a pretty pink backdrop.

So now Bloomfield Cottage has a Wedding to add to our impressive list of occasions celebrated in this beautiful setting. Over the years we have celebrated 16ths, 18ths, 21sts, 50ths, Melbourne Cup Luncheons, Neighbourhood get-togethers, Halloween, Easter Sunday brunches complete with 9- holes of golf or Croquet, Open Gardens and many happy Christmas`s. And next year we are hosting our daughter`s engagement to add to the wonderful memories and good times shared here.

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom and to Bloomfield Cottage for hosting this special gathering.

It gives me such pleasure to share our beautiful garden from time to time, and with you, on this blog. Till next time....
