Things are a little different this spring, and that’s ok. Just like the daffodils, the jonquils and the tulips we have been in hibernation, underground, waiting for the time when we can emerge, and it’s no different with weddings. Spring, a time of growth and renewal, is also a time for contemplation and reassessment. Plans have changed, we have changed – and there is a profoundly deep sense of valuing the small things, the people we love, the moments we connect.
Weddings too have found a new way forward. For those planning spring weddings, the postponement of the big day until next year provides extr time for planning and dreaming. For couples who want to be married sooner rather than later, the coming of spring brings a welcome opportunity to plan a wedding that is the ‘essence’ of their hearts. Micro, intimate, pop-up weddings and elopements are exciting options that for many provide an easier, budget friendly and timely response. After all this, a spring wedding and a fresh start in married life is really the only thing that matters.
Spring is a time of perfection in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges. Gardens burst into life, the vines awaken and send their tiny tendrils into the sky preparing for the next batch of grapes we love so much. The vegetable gardens tended over winter are full of possibility, and the blossom in the orchards is soft and sweetly perfumed. In the forest and along the rivers the native wattle brightens our day with millions of golden orbs in flower. The world is alive, love shines and getting hitched is the perfect celebration for lovebirds with new beginnings written on their hearts.
