I know this is a food blog but I thought I would share a couple of photos from my wedding down on Bruny Island. In Tassie you have to have an indoor backup for a wedding and we certainly used it. The weather was foul with rain and a 30-40 knot Sou-Wester coming up the channel. But you know what? It made for a better day. We were all inside by the fire watching the white caps while Lottie and I exchanged vows. Although it was very tricky getting Pheonix (the makeup artist) across in the boat.

Unfortunately we didn't really take any photos of the food, but take my word for it, it was excellent. We had the freshest Trevalla in beurre blanc (thanks to my friend Tom at Mures), Bruny Island oysters, salt and pepper calamari, gravlax, smashed potatoes and barbecued lamb. All the food and the way the reception went was perfect. We can't thank Kris and Ray from the Jetty Cafe enough. For dessert we had chocolate cake that Lottie had made and decorated by our friend Phil, followed by the always great Bruny Island cheeses.

I find best thing about island/country weddings is that most people stay overnight which makes for an awesome after party. I'll just say it was fairly massive and I think we should have all bought shares in Captain Morgans Spiced Gold before hand.

Big ups to Juan who did most of the photos. Also a big thanks to fellow blogger Catherine who helped so much with decorating/styling and flowers from her uncles farm.

We did finally see some good weather on our mini honeymoon. This is the view from Rocky Hills Retreat near Swansea where we stayed for a few nights.
