“The evening before our wedding, I had a big fight with my husband-to-be over the phone. He was having his second bucks night, or that’s how it sounded, anyway. I was driving around organising music for our reception and I’d run out of petrol.
While he was enjoying beers at the pub, I was running around with jerry cans and hitching rides to the service station. It was late. I was annoyed. Tomorrow I’d be looking tired instead of the best I’d ever looked in my whole entire life. After I refilled the car I managed to get lost. So I rang him for help. That’s when we had the fight. He sounded like he couldn’t have been happier. I was livid. So I hung up on him.
It wasn't intentional, but I arrived at our wedding an hour late. He was sweating. I’m not usually someone who’s late anywhere.
On the wedding morning, our chauffeur informed me that the road to where our ceremony was being held was too narrow and windy for a stretch limo. It wouldn’t matter, the chauffeur said, because there was an alternative route, albeit a little longer.
Our ceremony was held on the banks of the Hawkesbury river, right next to the Berowra Waters car ferry. The alternative route had delivered us to the opposite bank and we would have to now cross the river. That’s when it was discovered the length of the limousine might cause it to get wedged on the ferry’s on-ramp.
So I arrived at my wedding on the back of a barge. Cars up the front. Me at the back. Our guests heard me coming across the river because the people in their cars on the ferry with us were beeping and cheering. Despite the fact I was holding my dress out of puddles of oil, I felt like royalty. It is, and always will be, one of the most memorable moments of my life.
I walked off my barge and up the aisle to my husband who was in tears. He never saw the limo we spent $800 on. He was mightily relieved to see me though.” - Rachael Hastie, Wedlockers 📸: @wedlockers
