The (Wedding) Ashes


When an Australian girl is marrying an English gentleman what better way for the guests to get to know each other than a cricket match- The Wedding Ashes! Add cucumber sandwiches, scones and clotted cream for the tea break and an Aussie BBQ with pavlova afterwards and it should have everyone getting along famously in no time.

The fact that everything is taking place in France at a Napoleonic chateau adds a rather surreal touch, but with enthusiastic cheering from both sides, teams made up of all ages and some honorary team members (including our Zimbabwean wedding celebrant donning the Aussie green and gold) the result was an unforgettable highlight- although some questionable umpiring, dubious cricket technique and an all-in-brawl did ensure that the return series will be a hotly contested contest!
