Hi all,

I am planning to get married late Jan/early Feb in Melbourne. Was wondering if there are some of you who were married around this time in Melbourne, and what your weather was like. Just a bit scared of thunderstorms/heatwaves.

I know the feeling - we're getting married 8 January 2005. Can't work out this weather and didn't really have a choice - I'm a teacher and it's the only time we can. We aren't that worried though - we have a marble chapel and otherwise, the reception is inside.
My birthday is Jan 10 and I know that the weather has ALWAYS, without an exception, been good on this day - not overly hot, not cold so I'm figuring 2 days shouldn't make a difference.

Melbourne has a European-like climate. It is rather different from the weather of the more northern states. I lived most of my life in Sydney, and there you get hot, wet, stormy summers, and cool, dry winters. Down here in Melbourne its different. We get the hot, dry summers, with relatively few storms compared to Sydney, while in winter its cold and wet, lots and lots of rain (dont we know it, Melb girls!) and sometimes storms. I remember last summer we barely got one thunderstorm. Its also rare that the temp gets much above 35C smile.gif Hope this helps!

*update* 6.5 years on wink.gif

It didn't rain one drop from January 1 - January 26, 2006! We had quite a few days over 40 in the lead-up to our wedding day, which was fun for our friends who made the trip from the UK biggrin.gif

The heavens opened during our wedding rehearsal, with torrential thunderstorms, and it rained ALL morning of the wedding, which meant we had to get married inside. In the end it was a beautiful setting - it stopped raining about 2 hours before the ceremony and started to heat up again, so everything was shiny and sparkly and perfect for photographs. By the time of the reception it was up in the 30s with about 80% humidity and the aircon started struggling in the reception place biggrin.gif Thankfully we'd bought about 100 fold-up chinese fans earlier in the week for everyone.

I wouldn't have changed a thing in the end!

Did you get married the Australia Day long weekend?

We had our engagement party the saturday night and it rained all morning so we ran around trying to borrow tarps and gazebos for the backyard... Then it didn't rain a drop during the party but it was so hot and humid all night. I have frizzy hair and shiny skin in all the photos!

Yep - that's the one biggrin.gif

It was the Australian Open women's final that day - Mauresmo vs Henin. Seem to remember it was either a walkover, or someone got injured and had to retire. I remember running off to get result updates mid make-up biggrin.gif
