An unpredictable forecast couldn't weather the bond between these two...

Rosie & Tom hosted their ceremony at Surf Coast Hotel and whilst it was our outdoor ceremony area overlooking Zeally Bay's ocean which originally caught Rosie's eye, Torquay weddings in April call for an option "B". 

2pm being the time to 'call' if the outdoor ceremony would take place, the sky was still blue and welcoming. Andrew, the SCH F&B manager made an executive decision to set up our Level 3 Restaurant just in case it all turned in just over an hour. 

And lucky he did...

By 2.30pm, the rain clouds were rolling towards Torquay and before we knew it, the rain was aggressive and the sky, extremely dull. 

Robertsons Farmgate flower specialists had one hour to set up their masterpiece whilst the wooden arbour was taken from our ceremony area to our freshly converted Level 3 Restaurant, luckily with ocean views! 

Rosie was nervous about the weather but our Wedding Coordinator was in touch all day about our plans and "not to worry" as it was all being sorted - and it was. 

The guests were loving socialising cocktail style in our Pool Bar whilst renovations were being made behind the scenes. Their professional flutist was happy to be practising inside in the cosy atmosphere by the fireplaces overlooking the grey, powerful sky being carried out over Zeally Bay's disrupted ocean. 

In the end, Rosie walked beautifully down the aisle and married the man she loved and got to do so in the shaded warmth, still with the ocean views she envisioned for her special day. Tom was over the moon and extremely happy with the set up. 

We wish this happy couple an amazing future xx
