We arrived at the Sebel at 6pm for pre-dinner drinks and were welcomed by a lovely vibrant rainbow. If you look at the very left edge of the photo you’ll see the chapel where Steve and I were married. There are a lot of photos because I had SUCH an awesome time so I’ll just make random comments for each… sound good?
This is me and Steve posing for a nice full length photo and I love it as we don’t have many. I’m wearing my new blue dress. I love it so much.
We got the real 5* treatment. Louise is enjoying the champagne, food and some young eye candy and our new Captain is enjoying a lovely red.
Ok, it’s dorky but I could blame it on the Chandon but we both know I’d be lying.
Then we headed out to the courtyard for dinner. This is the only photo I have of Kun, (the guy at the head of the table) who is the NSW manager of Sebel Resorts. For someone so important he’s very laid back and funny. I know we’ll be the best of friends lol.
During our pre-dinner drinks, as well as the first hour of dinner we were entertained my a jazz trio. On first glance I thought they were just highschool kids. They are, but they are also kids that travel the world to different Jazz festivals and perform all over Sydney. Wow. Those kids were very gifted.
The table setting was divine. I honestly thought we were gate crashing a wedding. Gorgeous! 2 large flower displays full of roses, lizzies, orchids… almost everything I had in my wedding bouquet. There were also lots of large hurricane vases with candles spread out across the table and courtyard.
I thought we would just be having a seafood feast… turns out it was just the first course! We had the biggest prawns I’ve seen in a long time, the freshest oysters you could get, crab and lobster. I love lobster!
After the sun went down the main course came out. Thick chunky steak, potatoes, whole snapper, chicken and broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce. Wow!
The atmosphere was lovely, the company was great and the food was superb. Every one of us felt so special. The Sebel set the bar high for next year!
There was a dessert course as well but for some reason I was so distracted I forgot to take photos… hmm. Lots of chocolate mud cake and mango cheesecake thingys that were delicious. Afterward we chilled out at the Barracks bar and continued drinking.
