…just like Jo and Len did to their wedding ceremony along the riverfront at Noosaville.
~ with Sunshine Coast wedding celebrant Kari ~
Congratulations to newly weds, Jo and Len, your wedding was such fun.
But here is how it began….
Before the wedding began, guests were a little surprised when the Groom unbuttoned his shirt. Dressed in singlet and rolled up pants, he wandered away from the wedding canopy set up by the banks of the Noosa River (by Splash Events). His purple shirt hung on the canopy and he disappeared! Was purple going to be a colour theme today?
Ah, only to return a little while later from the water, paddling a canoe with energetic young Best Man, Ben. Cheers greeted them as they beached the canoe and redressed in their handsome finery.
But where was the bride?
Guests were invited to step this way and wander over to the roadside; bemused looks, puzzled questions ensued.
It all became clear when the bride arrived on the arm of her dashing son, Max, with her bridesmaids. Several girls stepped onto the zebra crossing and held up all traffic for the bridal party to cross over. Reminiscences of Abbey Road, more cheers ….. and tears, and laughter. And the ceremony had not begun yet!
Returning to the bridal canopy, the guests were in for another surprise, as indeed was the bride. Len took up a microphone and sung to his bride as she walked down the aisle. We forgave her tears. We all cried. It was too beautiful.
That was simply the beginning to a delightful wedding ceremony by the river, …..
and finishing as the sun was sinking over the still water, on the top deck of the Boathouse floating restaurant.
Ah …. it doesn’t get better than this!
