We got married! Twice! Back in June, Dave and I got hitched in the Blue Mountains, NSW and then flew to London and did it all over again with my family and our friends over there. Our wedding in the Blue Mountains was cosy and wintery – exactly how we wanted it. The venue was a large log cabin in Blackheath surrounded by gorgeous bushland, and almost all of our guests stayed on site in little cabins dotted around the property. Our aim for the day was to keep it informal and relaxed with plenty of good food, wine and merriment. We had log fires, lots of native flowers and tons of tealights, as well as the most gorgeous back drop of the Blue Mountains. We also got a little bit of unexpected decor – the seasonal wattle growing all over the place was beautiful! All in all we had such a fantastic day and evening, and it turned out even better than we could have imagined. I’m going to write another post later on …
My friends who were visiting from the UK have both left now, nooooo! It was so lovely having them here and being able to show them around. We spent a great day up in the mountains last week. posted by Claire.
Last weekend Claire and I went up to the mountains again for a bit of a break. We went on an adventure out to Mt Hay with my parents. It is about a half an hour drive north of Leura and is only really accessible by 4WD, so it was pretty rough going, but absolutely worth it once we were there! Here’s some pictures I took while we were out exploring the area. It’s an absolutely amazing place, the views are almost prehistoric. posted by David.
