This was my weekend: A super personalised art retreat wedding on Saturday followed by a pink haired bride with dinosaur table settings on Sunday. And to top it off, both couples made mention of the marriage inequality that exists for gay and lesbian couples in Australia during their ceremonies. A little bit of me swooned inside.
When Rachel first contacted me last year, we bonded over doughnuts. She told me that her and her partner Pat were getting married in the town of Berry (just an hour or so south of my old hometown Wollongong) which I knew just so happened to have the best fresh doughnut van in the world. This permanent trailer sits on the side of the Princes Highway passing through the town and I basically begged Rachel to hire me so I could get an opportunity to have some again. Thankfully, they didn’t need much convincing and on my way home late on the evening of their wedding, I just so happened to get the opportunity to sink my teeth into the hot, sweet and cinnamony goodness of a freshly made one. That in itself made the entire day worthwhile (not to mention the awesomeness of Rachel and Pat). We braved waist high grass, killer mosquitos and mud during the afternoon but these guys were adamant that it was all worth it. And indeed it was.
