The Bridesmaids Secret | Emma and Sven | Clarendon House Tasmania

There was a big secret at Emma and Sven's wedding. Annelise the chief bridesmaid had been keeping something from the couple and unexpectedly revealed it to them during her speech. No it was nothing like what you would see on a soap opera, no big twist on the end of the day but it was totally memorable.

I discovered the truth early in the day... Annelies wasn't going over her speech as she told Emma, she was remembering the lines to the song she was going to sing... and the chours on the ukulele she was going to accompany herself with. 2 weeks before the wedding Annelies didn't know how to play the ukulele and her first performance would be for her best friend in front of over 100 people. No pressure.

She rewrote the words to Vance Joy's Riptide to be all about Emma and Sven. And it bought the house down, the look on Emma and Sven's faces through the song were priceless.

This was possibly the highlight of my wedding season, maybe because I still have the chorus stuck in my head
