A chilly Saturday morning by Lake
Burley Griffin played host to a
romantic ceremony for the wedding of
Carolyn Smith and Gavin Jolley.The
couple met in London two years ago,
and had been back in Australia for nine
months prior to the wedding.
Carolyn proposed to Gavin,
presenting him with a photobook of
their time together, and the question
posed on the back page.
"He suggested marriage, and I said
I d ask him when I m ready," Carolyn
The couple decided to get married
in winter to accommodate all the
guests, including Gavin s parents, who
travelled from the United Kingdom.
"I thought, if I m going to get
married in winter, I m going to stay
warm and look amazing," Carolyn
The coat Carolyn wore was shipped
from England, and features a faux fur
collar and cuffs, black lace and
embroidered fairytale pictures. Gavin
wore a tailored charcoal suit with a
small silk flower, handmade by
Carolyn, who also made her own
bouquet from paper flowers.
The ceremony took place on Stage
88, which was decorated by close
friends of the couple, and the dining
hall at Canberra Grammar School
proved ideal for the reception.
"We chose the park because we
wanted something a little bit sheltered.
I love Canberra, and I just love that
area of the park. We chose the school
because . . . of the beautiful old hall.
It looks like Hogwarts," Carolyn said.
"It was very much a community
wedding. We had lots of friends help
us with things, from making the food,
decorating and arranging the photo
booth we had," Carolyn said.
"I really loved as we drove towards
Stage 88, just seeing the stage all
decorated and filled with people. It
was so exciting!"
The couple hope to go on a
honeymoon in the future.
SPRING INTO THE FIRST
OF THE OPEN GARDENS
With spring in the air it is coming to
that time when the gates to some of
Canberra s most spectacular gardens
are swung open for the public. Since
settling near Hall in 1984, the owners

breathtaking two-acre garden. It is
the first on the calendar for the Open
Garden Australia season, followed
by two others in the ACT during
October. Entry is $8, children under-
18 free, and proceeds will be donated
to the Springfield Bushfire Brigade.
Visit Yeumville at 680 Nanima Road
at Springrange, near Hall, on
September 13 and 14.
