Matt's wedding

Matt's wedding was set at the Atrium at the Botanical Garden's in Hobart. It is a really nice sandstone building that is packed out with flowers and has a beautiful fountain in the middle of it. There was a quartet of musicians there although they didn't come with the building. I thought it had a really modern and fresh feel to it. Overall, it was a really terrific environment.

It was good to catch up with a variety of friends that I hadn't seen in a while. Simon and Brooke are always good value and I hadn't seen Pughy in a while. He had on a mega crinkly top (apparently it was meant to be that way - i.e. trendy). All those years of not ironing and I thought I was just lazy. I was actually trendy.

The reception was held at the docks just near where the Sydney to Hobart yachts were moored. As an aside, I have real difficulty with the word yacht for some reason. I always spell it yatch or yaught. Maybe it's some childhood trauma I'm trying to bury. I do remember having a crap little boat thing that didn't skim very well on the puddles outside our home when I was growing up.

Anyway, the reception was really nice. I was the MC. The M means Master. It was great being the boss of everyone again. Just like when I was teaching Taekwondo...

"Don't leave that glass on the edge of the bench like that. Move it into the middle like this. Give me 20 push-ups and 10 squats."

"What's your name gorgeous?"

As MC, it was important for me to survey what was going on and avoid dancing at all costs. It was OK to hang back and drinks however (that's responsible MCing).

Anyway, it wasn't all about me. It was mainly about Matt and Renee. It was a beautiful wedding.
