I have a soft spot for Macedon. My dad has lived up there for the past 10 years and whenever the noise in Melbourne gets a little too much, I pack my toothbrush and my pillow and shuttle off to dad’s place for a massive glass of wine (the kind where dad fills it all the way to the top) and a chance to just sit and listen to the cockatoos in the cyprus trees.
Loving a good small world story, when I met Lisa + Hugh they mentioned his family’s property in Macedon was to be the location for their upcoming wedding. And as it turned out, that property was next to my dad’s. Brilliant.
What followed was a stunning day that felt seamless. Everything happened when it was supposed to. It was a party, but at the same time, it seemed almost peaceful. The dresses, the colours, the ceremony, the flowers, the portraits, the dancing, the speeches. Perhaps it was just a dose of some good country air but all of it was glorious and it was indeed a day where I was reminded of how much I love doing what I do.
Love Katie xo
