Wee Jasper Jottings

The Wee Jasper valley turned on its most spectacular scenery last week for the wedding of Hristiyana Antova and Hannibal Barber at Wee Jasper Station.

With the rolling green hills, blue-tinged bush and curious horses looking on, Hrissy and Hannibal tied the knot on Saturday.

Guests travelled from all over the world to Wee Jasper, including Hrissy's mother and grandmother from Bulgaria and Hannibal's Aunt Lissy and family from China.

Chris 'Griffo' Griffiths provided the wedding car and Gregory Holloway was on hand to chauffer party-goers home throughout the evening. The celebrations continued through Sunday with many guests returning to the beautifully renovated Wee Jasper Station homestead for breakfast and lunch.

It was a truly special day and we all wish Hrissy and Hannibal congratulations and the very best for the future.
