Wedding bliss amongst the slopes

By Bride and Groom 17 July 2017

When you love the snow as much as Natalie Bloomfield, it is only fitting to be married amongst the icy slopes. 

Natalie and Hayden Bloomfield took their first chairlift ride as husband and wife at Mt Buller on Saturday following an intimate alpine ceremony in the chapel.

Hayden asked Natalie, who regularly snowboards in the resort, to marry him at Mt Buller.

It was only fitting for the couple to also marry on the mountain in the heart of winter.

The temperature difference couldn't have been more dramatic from their Northern Territory home where the two now live and work.

Both are volunteer CFA fire fighters and Natalie received a ride to and from the chapel in the Mt Buller over snow fire truck with several CFA well-wishes attending the ceremony.

Light snow fell on cue in the afternoon following the ceremony to add some winter magic to the proceedings.

Natalie was wrapped up in a bright red jacket for the chilly chairlift ride, however the couple kept warm cuddling on the Blue Bullet chair with a “Just married” sign to share their happy news with the skiers below.
