Brett and Karissa’s wedding was a vibrant and lively affair. The venue of choice was St Clements Monastery in Galong which is a perfect venue for a wedding. I love the idea of bringing guests away from their home town to continue the party the next day, everyone loves an excuse to party on, don’t they!?
St Clements hosted superbly. I was incredibly impressed with their facilities, the setting and the food! Quite amazing. I hope to see them host many more weddings (along with the retreats which are often open to the public and I think much needed in this day and age. Go to their website and check out what’s happening there.)
I was pretty amazed by Karissa’s ability to get everyone on task and organised, but as the co-owner (with sister, Nicola) behind Scissor Sisters in Young, NSW you’d expect nothing less than a powerhouse, and that’s what she is!
On this fairly warm Spring day we did our photoshoot in full sun, leaving the rest of the day for the wedding party to relax with guests, which is a great way to do things if you can swing it. We climbed the hill over St Clements where the view was worth every step and walked through the retreat’s grove where the past was vivid all around us.
Congratulations, Brett and Karissa, it was a treat to see you married surrounded by such a loving family and community.
