~ with Sunshine Coast marriage celebrant – Kari.
Congratulations Bianca and Christiaan married at The Country House in Hunchy.
Theirs was a cosy and intimate wedding and full of love.
Bianca and Christiaan married on the veranda of The Country House B & B homestead looking out from Hunchy..over the glorious flowered garden. We could see all the way to the coast over the trees. What a spectacular place is Hunchy tucked away from the world along an old track over the cattle grid and beyond. The Hunchy secret is discovered by Peter Pans and Mary’s seeking a retreat under the hills of Montville on the Range. Bianca and Christiaan found a country paradise for their Australian wedding.
Bianca’s favourite colour was definitely the theme of the day, complemented by bold pink and orange gerberas. And there were flowers everywhere; in lapels of each guest, in her hair, and woven lovingly through the slats of the veranda rails. She proved how absolutely stunning a bride can look without wearing a white wedding dress. And Christiaan cut a most handsome image as he waited for his bride. The bold colours suited their young and bold outlook on life, migrating to Australia to make a family life.
Originally from South Africa, Bianca and Christiaan wished to include in their ceremony something reflective of marriage back home. They requested a prayer be read in Afrikaans. So this celebrant takes herself off to learn how to pronounce Afrikaans!
We were also privileged to watch a video message sent from South Afrika on the computer screen.
As they walked away from their hinterland wedding ceremony, we noticed the road was strewn with jacaranda blossoms.
It was a perfect purple day!
