In honour of Father’s Day, we wanted to celebrate the father-daughter bond that is often so beautifully captured by photographers. And to compliment these, we thought we’d ask one of the patterned people’s dad’s about his own experience of being the father of the bride. Papa Herringbone was kind enough to share his memories of this special day.

“Being the father of the bride I was ready to give my daughter Caroline’s hand in marriage after the groom, Adam, had asked me for my permission some months earlier. Our bags, formal attire and tissues were ready, the wedding day run down sheet safe in my coat pocket, Perth to Melbourne online check in was done and dusted. We were ready.

What we weren’t ready for was the whole sensational wedding day. WOW! I’ve been to a few weddings in my time but this one takes the cake. No wedding pun intended! The formal marriage ceremony was held upstairs over Acqua e Vino  in an intimate, relaxed and romantic setting with good friends, joy and music. The reception was held at Studio Raw Materials, a warehouse from the street view but a wonderful, first class catered for special event venue. There were tears, laughter and dancing. All had a great time!

What a great night, what a great wedding, what a great couple!

I could not be prouder of my daughters wedding day planning, thoughtfulness to family and guests and for her choice of partner. Sure I’m biased but the big day spoke for itself

After a fantastic one off wedding celebration, what of Caroline and Adam’s future?

For Caroline and Adam, whatever is beyond their horizon, I think they’re ready.
