I often reflect on my first wedding which as it happens was of a niece of mine Lizzie and her now husband James. They married on the railway platform at Bullarto which is a few kilometres out of Daylesford. The weather in January was perfect, warm and sunny and the location was quirky and fun.
Prior to the wedding all the guests met at Daylesford spa country railway station where they boarded a chartered railcar which transported them to Bullarto. They alighted onto the platform and were greeted by the groom and his groomsmen. The anticipation grew until the bride, her father and the bridesmaids arrived in vintage MG saloons.
The rest is as they say is history, but for me that was a truly magical day, my first wedding, an amazing venue and happiness all around.
