When the night ends with a karaoke version of ‘Horses’ - you know you’ve had a pretty awesome celebration. The day kicked off with champers, laughter, the most adorable and giddy flower girl, a chilled groom Jake and the stunningly gorgeous bride Marissa. With the wind almost blowing away the guests (and at one point Marissa's veil) - no one was more blown away than Jake, seeing his beautiful bride for the first time.
As they say, “love isn’t perfect”, as echoed in Ciara's (bridesmaid) speech. So much so that, Jodel and Greg's very first impressions of each other were explained as, “some random guy” and “I didn’t really notice her”. But as destiny would have it, after a ‘few’ first dates and unknowingly becoming an item, but confirming it with Greg asking, “I don’t know, are you my girlfriend?” and Jodel replying, “well, yeh… I guess.” - they’re now Mr and Mrs (JLA)!
Their love for coffee and fitness brought these two amazing lovebirds together 5 years ago. Brandon was Sarah’s motivator, goal setter, guide and coffee runner aka her personal trainer - he said it was “love at first rep”.

Fouad promised Zhong two things when they started dating. Firstly, to tear down her walls and secondly, to write her a rap song.

We start at the beginning, “Matt had the proposal all planned out, wanting it to be by the rockpools so as to create a romantic memory… but with the emotion of the moment, while on bended knee, with ring in hand, all he could manage to ask was, “Hey Carly, do you want to get married?” Carly of course said “Yes” and the rest so they say is history…” says celebrant Lynette Parton.
As said by Uel (the Best Man), “In life you have friends, you have good friends, you even have best friends - and then you’ve got family.” Michelle and Kerry’s wedding saw the bringing together of wonderful, warm-hearted, beautiful people who treat one another like family and have God’s love at their centre.
It all started when the ‘little island’ guy met the ‘big island’ girl, all those years ago on a trip to Arizona. While they joked about green cards, little did they know, this was already the start of something special.
Renee and Nick have an amazing and loving chemistry with each other and a beautiful family connection, all who have open hearts and open arms. We could all feel the love and see the happy tears flow.
Fun, cheerful, nautical with a hint of pineapples are words that would best describe the wonderful Sydney wedding of Mary and Phil. The day started off with an intimate tea ceremony – but not before Phil proved his love for Mary by downing a wasabi sandwich, getting his arm waxed and practicing his audition song for The Voice (kidding), ‘Work’ by Rihanna.
