DATE TO REMEMBER
Alyssa Flynn and Heath Roles shared their first dance on the Barwon Heads pier in light rain with a theatrical backdrop of storm clouds as adoring guests watched on. It was their highlight of the special day on March 14, 2015, which began in the bride’s hometown of Anglesea. “I am lucky to have found a beautiful partner, inside and out,” Heath says. “I know our adventures will continue until we are old and wrinkly.”.
It was a sentimental occasion for Alyssa, whose parents were married at the same location on the outskirts of Anglesea 29 years prior. She carried jewellery of her late grandmothers and handcrafted the decorations and table settings. Proudly, her 95-year-old pa, who has since passed, attended the ceremony and reception. “To have him share this day with us meant the absolute world to me,” she says. “The thought still brings a tear to my eye.” The tide was rising as the bridal party posed for photos at the nearby beach, before a mustard-yellow Kombi transported the newly-married couple to Barwon Heads.
