Features > Melbourne, Australia (Apr 2009) > Miranda & Hoy's Wedding


Finally - the wedding we traveled so far to see! Miranda worked with me at GE Healthcare back in 2001 and later moved to the UK (still working for GEHC) to be nearer to her boyfriend Hoy. Miranda's family is from Melbourne and she grew up there and Hoy's relatives even traveled from China to be there.

Lots of very tasty food, but not time for that yet, it's time for the tea ceremony

After some discussion on exactly how the ceremony was to be held (it was like a different part of the ceremony was known by each person) it began

I guess those are maybe dates?
