Default Wedding Bells At Corowa 2013

A wonderful week had at Corowa topped of by a coup of unusual proportions.

Sitting in the main street having breakfast with a few regulars we were approached by a young fellow seeking a military vehicle to add something to his wedding photos. "Anything will do but I wouldn't mind something special". Come with me lad. Do I have a truck for you!

The groom was a current serving Army officer getting married in Corowa at just the right time. I insisted the bride drive.

what a fantastic day for them. I guess they will never forget that 'special' backdrop they had. Plus a nicer looking driver of the truck could not be found LOL!

Thumbs up Nice touch....

Nice touch Jack, for you and the Corowa gang! And a nice touch for Mr. Boobee!

Did a similar thing years ago with the anniversary of a WW11 Vet and his wife. Drove them to the hotel in my jeep, which is what he drove during the war. He used to smuggle his wife (girl friend) in and out of their barracks, in the back, covered with a blanket. Great moment in time!

Hopefully, they call you and your vehicle up on their anniversary!!!!!! Robert
