The Moonee Valley cricket family was out in full force for the wedding of Life Member Matt Thomas to his long-time sweetheart Vanessa Riggio on May 7.
No fewer than 18 current and former Valley cricketers joined in the nuptials with Matt and Vanessa at Mickleham - including eight fellow Life Members.
At right: Vanessa and Matt exchange vows with the preacher.
The gathering also represented 22 Valley premierships, 33 centuries and eight Lindsay Jones Best Clubman awards.
Matt and Vanessa had a couple of false starts to their married life together over the past year, thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions on gatherings.
But it was all worthwhile in the end - and a wonderful ceremony and reception provided everyone the opportunity to celebrate with the couple.
Matt's a past First Eleven captain and former committee member - having been at Moonee Valley since the Under 12s.

Ian Denny wins the Lindsay Jones Award
The man who has won just about everything at Moonee Valley Cricket Club has now also captured our most prestigious award - Club legend Ian Denny was presented with the Lindsay Jones Best Clubman award at our 2020/21 Presentation on April 17.
Ian has won multiple Club Champion awards, batting and bowling awards and other honors, but was floored when Life Member John Talone announced the Lindsay Jones.
For good measure, Ian "Egbert" Denny also won the Sean O'Kane Award, for best player in all grades other than the Firsts.

We also invested four new Life Members at the night, held in our Ormond Park Pavilion.
Daniel Phillips, Jesse Nankivell-Sandor, Bede Gannon and Shaun Rayment have all reached the milestone after extended time at our Club.
Nadeera Thuppahi was Club Champion after his stellar season which netted 644 runs @ 64.4.
Sam Kater was voted Wicketkeeper of the Year, while flag-winning Tara Newman won the Coach's Award as Most Improved Player - starting the season off just wanting to field in a game and not have to bat or bowl, and finishing it with a Premiership medal around her neck.
