Jessica Smith put her late grandmother’s wedding ring and her late great-grandmother’s wedding ring on her right hand on her wedding day, something special to honour family who could not be there. Samuel Dangerfield waited a top of a hang gliding launch pad at Moggs Creek, when Jess was led down the aisle by her parents to say “I do” with the sweeping views of Aireys Inlet and Lorne on show. “It is somewhere Sam and his family really treasure so it was very special having it up there, even with a bit of wind,” Jess says. “It was amazing to see the guests’ reactions to the ceremony location, it was so special.” The reception, at a Surf Coast venue, was a continuation of a joyous day and night. “For the both of us, watching everyone else have so much fun and being so happy for us was so special – it was such a happy and fun wedding,” Jess says.
