  4. 4. After a protracted engagement and manyyears living apart, Richard and I decidedon our new home - the quaint seasidetown of Queenscliff - as the destination forour wedding.  Friends and family flew infrom interstate and overseas to join us incelebrating what many thought was a verylong and overdue union. Themes for the day were friendship,music and wine and all three flowed incopious amounts. We were lucky enoughto have two of our favourite songs - KateMiller Heike’s ‘Space They Cannot Touch’and Lior’s ‘This Old Love’ - played duringthe ceremony, leaving few dry eyes. Alocal acoustic player kept us entertainedover champagne and canapes and Richard’s‘hit list’ kept us on the dance floor for mostof the night. The night was topped off withsweets and cakes from the dessert buffet- my one ‘must have’ for my wedding. It was a fun, casual, heart-warming daythat seemed to pass in the blink of an eye,but a day on which I truly did feel beautifulin my gorgeous Enzoani gown.
