Deji and Hannah’s Intimate Summer Soirée

In the crazy lead up to Christmas when crowds are rampant and most of the general public run around like mad chickens, I was privileged enough to have the craziness put on hold for just a day. Sunday 21 December 2014 was Deji and Hannah’s day, where the world around them stopped as they came before their family and friends (many who had flown from all around the world) to be joined as husband and wife.

The Chinese Gardens played the backdrop to this beautiful couple’s ceremony and as I listened to their vows I could really sense the admiration and respect they had for each other. They were more than just compatible partners and lovers, they were the best of friends. Deji, quiet and composed, beamed from ear to ear. Hannah was radiant and with a mixture of tears and laughter, she conquered her biggest fear of public speaking – she also had all her guests in joyful tears and laughter too.

After the ceremony was when the real fun began. The Argyle Xchange played hosts to Deji and Hannah’s reception and what beautiful hosts they were… And we did what we do best, added the soundtrack to Deji and Hannah’s celebrations =)

I wish you all the best for the future and beyond Deji and Hannah. Keep defying the critics, keep loving each other with all your hearts and through it all, never let go of each other’s hands because two are always stronger than one.

Jubilation at the Carols in the Domain 2014

This is a little belated but nothing gets you in the Christmas spirit than the belting out your favourite Christmas carols at the Carols in the Domain. This year Jubilation had the privilege of sharing the stage with the beautiful Paulini (gosh that girl has pipes on her!) and the phenomenal Doug Parkinson in the gospel segment of the Carols. Here are some pics from Carols to keep you in the Christmas spirit for that little bit longer =)

Mission: The Vine and Branches Campsite

A few weekends ago (before the rains came!) I had the wonderful privilege of spending a cloudless late- spring afternoon floating along the pristine Port Hacking River (I love the perks of my job!) Boarding one of Cronulla Ferries finest vessels “Gunnamatta” we cruised around the bay and whilst I played some tunes and drank in the view, guests raised money for the building of “The Vine and Branches” Campsite in the Philippians. It was a win win! Here are some pics from the day!

The building of “The Vine and Branches” campsite project is supported by the Fellowship of Congregatonal Churches and is spearheaded by Pastor Cameron Douglas of Jannali Congregational Church in hopes to raise $60,000 to develop a piece of land into a campsite for a sister church in Tagaytay, Philippians.
