A Splendid Couple of Weddings

The swirl of a kilt accompanied Colin MacDonald and his beautiful bride Karen Verbo down the aisle at St Patrick’s church with Jenny Rayne conducting the ceremony in her warm and wonderful manner on the 8th of October.

 

 

 

 

Charmaine Burt and Peter Gudsell married on a once in a lifetime date of the 11/11/11. Peter made a symbolic return to family roots at Burkes Pass when he and Charmaine chose St Patrick’s. They include the Burgess family who donated the land for the church, and the Foster and Annetts who were early village inhabitants. The bride, in a gorgeous cream dress with beaded detail, with her elegantly attired groom and entourage had photos in the spring garden at Alma Cottage
