Boats, rainbow fans, laughter and drag queens is a quick summary of Josh and Chris’s wedding day.
Josh and Chris had been together for a decade before getting married – mainly just waiting for Australia to catch up and legalise same-sex marriage. When their day finally came around, it was amazing. They got ready together at the Shangri-La Hotel in the CBD with their two best friends. It was a fun morning with music, getting dressed and burgers!
When everyone was ready to go, we all walked through the rocks, taking photographs along the way until we reached the jetty at Campbell’s Cove. We jumped on a gorgeous boat, pumped the music up and the bubbles flowed. They had a lot of fun cruising the harbour before slowly making their way to Jeffrey Street Wharf, where a car was waiting.
Before long, Chris and Josh were at the top of Bradley’s Head in Mosman, ready to walk the aisle. The background of Sydney Harbour, the colour pops from their rainbow fans and the words which were said made for a breathtaking ceremony. There was no walking back up the aisle as they were stopped by all of their overjoyed guests, dishing out congratulations, hugs and kisses.
When it came time to leave Bradley’s Head, there was a car waiting to take Josh, Chris and myself up to Barrel Bar and Dining in Cremorne. Now that is one awesome place. A little dark and sexy, with incredible food and drinks, it provided the perfect location for their celebrations. One of my favourite parts of the night was when Maxi Shield came to perform (I’m totally rooting for her in RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under!). When it was time for me to say goodnight, I know that for others the night was just beginning as they had Minskies in their sights!
