Bruny Island's first "virtual" wedding

Free Spirit Pods Bruny Accommodation hosted hosted the first virtual Zoom wedding on Bruny Island (and possibly Tasmania) last weekend. 

Garry Deutsher and Chris Varney Clark, the owners and operators of the waterfront getaway, had planned their wedding for the end of May, but Covid-19 travel bans forced them to put those plans on hold. 

Then, struck by the inspiration of isolation, they decided to go ahead - immediately.

"That was late Wednesday - and it happened on Sunday. " reports Chris "There were three mad days of phoning/emailing guests, explaining ‘zoom’ to people (many of whom had NO idea about social media), confirming the celebrant, organising music, photos, witnesses, confetti, and praying to the weather gods for a break in our much-loved rain. 

"Finally at 2.10pm on Sunday, April 19, I was driven down our driveway by ones of our witnesses in a vintage Alvis and escorted to my waiting groom and a laptop streaming our celebration to many parts of Australia and the world. 

"We couldn’t stop laughing the whole way through. Such a joyous occasion."

How nice to have some positive news to report in these dark days.
