They say that there is only 6 degrees (although, I think it is getting more like 2 degree) that separates us all, and that for every 6 people you meet, they know someone that you know or are related to someone that you know. But because, over my life, I have lived in a number of country towns in WA, I have to tell you that many of my couples that I do actually end up marrying, I have often met in a previous life or they know someone that I know. So, one cannot get away with anything, and such was the case, with this couple as I had met Lisa in Bunbury when I lived there back in the 90’s. So, Mark and Lisa met when they were young, 17 and 18, went together for a couple of years, split up and went their own ways, only, to go full circle and with a little bit of strategic manoevering later by Mark’s sister, Shandell, here they were getting married, to each other, some 20 years later.
They were married at Mark’s parent’s citrus orchard at Bindoon, and many thanks to Clem and Jan for inviting us there. Between the Bride and Groom and myself, we prepared very much a casual, cheeky, fun and lighthearted ceremony that reflected their personalities and their country lifestyles, and I think that it would be fair to say, that it was a big night in the sleepy town of Bindoon that night.
Best wishes to you both
And here is another one!
