A typical day in Sebana Cove Resort marina - the reflections where amazing.
Crew log:
This month is all about family, so our 'sailing' blog will be short. We flew home for our daughters wedding in Australia. The day was magic and a credit to the newly weds who did the entire wedding on a small budget. It quite simply could not have happened without the love and support of family and friends. Many of whom gave their professional skills as their gift or at a greatly reduced price. The event had a lovely 'air' of an old fashioned wedding supported with love. The occasion made more special with quite a few guests arriving from interstate and overseas. The work behind the scene is a credit to the happy couples relationship with their friends and family.

The weather gods were with us this day. Family and friends await the bride.
It was an amazing day watching your baby girl, marry the man of her dreams. Lisa was nothing short of a stunning bride.

This gorgeous but incredibly painful toddler has blossomed into a beautiful and intelligent woman.

Still at the beach, Lisa made for a stunning bride.
Three days before the big day, cousin Katie: a professional cake maker/decorator arrived. Her gift was the wedding cake. None of us had ever seen a cake of this scale being created before - it is quite the art. What a magnificent job Katie did and we all had so much fun together.

Such a special time. Wonderful memories with cousin Katie who spent an enormous number of hours on the wedding cake.

The finished product was spectacular.

To support Katie visit her website here: and follow her on FaceBook: - we wish you the best Katie on your business endeavour and it was so good to see you.

Photography on the day was done by Reece's nephew Liam who is a professional photographer and movie maker - what a generous gift Liam gave. The photo's he took are very impressive. Liam captured Lisa & Reece and their day beautifully.

Nephew Liam (white shirt) and his mate Ben took over 1500 photo's on the day.

To support Liam please visit his website - and check out the gallery - it's incredible. 

The food at the venue was done by Reece's sister in law, Bernadette. What an outstanding job, it looked and tasted amazing. She is a very talented lady to put all this together, it was a fabulous idea.

Flowers and all, supplied by Bernadette.
Please contact Bernadette at B Styled Events on 0409874616 if you are in need of a talented events manager.

The bride had to get to the venue somehow and friends of ours very kindly gave their time and their own car which is an awesome 1969 Chevelle.

Bruce and I wish the happy couple a life filled with love, harmony and understanding - congratulations Mr and Mrs M!
