~ with Sunshine Coast marriage celebrant – Kari.
Congratulations Royanna and Tyler married at Tiffany’s looking out over the Glasshouse Mountains.
They chose an auspicious date, the 11th of the 11th of 2011. Tyler had first proclaimed his love on 8th of 8th 2008, so recurring numbers were a theme. However recurring love was the theme of their 50’s style wedding day.
She described falling in love with him as experiencing two people dancing to a beat that nobody else could hear.
So much love and thought was poured into their wedding day; from the first moment the guests received a save-the-date with pics taken in a field of the couple-to-be peeping from behind a parasole, until the games on the grass and the dress-up-photo-booth at the reception.
Coastal Jazz warmed the air with relaxed Jazz tunes, fan tailed doves wandered around the sandstone courtyard, the sun shone brightly. It was a perfect day.
The bride arrived in a baby blue 1950’s Plymouth, called Alma May. Ooooh ain’t she sweet.
However there was one item, Royanna did not know about until the middle of the marriage ceremony. Tyler turned to his bride and apologised because he had recently spent money on …wait for it… a ukelele. He proceeded to sing to her, their special song….and brought the house down. It’s hard for a celebrant to keep a dry eye occasionally!

Kari, We cannot thank you enough for marrying us, and not just for marrying us but for taking our every phone call and meeting with us and always making us feel as though we were your only clients. You continued to make us feel as though we were incredibly important to you. Your attentiveness to us helped us feel secure that all the personal touches that we wanted throughout the ceremony would be honoured.
It is clear that you love what you do and that shined through on our wedding day. The whole bridal party loved you and we received so much positive feedback from the guests about you also. I have heard many people say that they spoke to their celebrant once over the phone before their wedding or simply communicated over email. With you, we felt as though our friend was marrying us by the time our Wedding Day arrived because you provided us with so much personal attention. I will be recommending you to anyone I meet that tells me they are getting married.
Lastly, you were so kind to us Kari and we will always remember you. Thank you for absolutely everything. You are a godsend!!
Royanna & Tyler
