Wedding bells - a gorgeous Gold Coast wedding!

By Lauren – Gold Coast Mum





My little sister got married!

It was an amazing weekend/ week leading up to the big day/ days following the big day catching up with visiting family and friends!

My middle sister, 14 months younger than me, married her partner of 15 years who also happens to be my husband’s best friend since kindergarten.


The boys have known each other since kindergarten and have grown up together, and now we all live in Queensland so still catch up as often as possible.

Together (before hubby and I had our children), us 4 have enjoyed multiple holidays and ski trips – skiing Australia and New Zealand,  and some amazing times together. They’re also God-Parents to our 4 children.

So this wedding was a very big deal for all of us! :-)

I was Matron of Honour and hubby was Best Man.
 
 
Miss 5 was Flower Girl, Mr 3 was Page Boy.
The twincesses were also gorgeous in their Flower Girl dresses.




Mr 3 and Miss 5 walked down the aisle together and were on their best behaviour during the ceremony.



Mr 3 looked SO cute wearing his little suit, complete with a bow tie and braces that I was gifted from Buckle Jr. 1922’s brand new Junior line of accessories for boys.

Made for the mini man, Buckle Jr. 1922 features a tight selection of belts, braces and bow ties for boys ages 3 – 10 years. 



(Renowned for their handmade appeal, the range successfully mimics
Buckle’s adult sizes so that little boys can mirror their dads – utilising the same leathers and buckle finishes.)




The twincesses were present at the ceremony, and were kept amused while the rest of us were on official duties.





The weather was perfect, the bride and groom looked absolutely divine, the ceremony was so beautiful and the location was picturesque.

There was a lot of LOVE in the air!





After the official photos and meals, my Matron of Honour speech touched on some funny stories from our childhood and special stories /moments shared with the Bride and Groom.


Instead of incorporating any Von Trapp Family style musical numbers (that surely would’ve been a huge hit ha ha), I managed to weave some song titles and lyrics throughout my speech that provided a few laughs, especially for the Bride and Groom.

Corkers included: "I wish I could give the world to you, but love is all I have to Give..." (thank you Backstreet Boys).

And marriage advice from the great Maroon 5: "It's not always rainbows and butterflies, it's compromise"...)
Four of the six of us. The twincesses were asleep by the time we managed to get this shot.



We all danced and enjoyed ourselves well into the night, thankful everything went so well and glad it was such a wonderful day for a fabulous couple who we all love dearly!

Congrats to my sis and brother-in-law!

  6. I held an event here, and it couldn't have gone any smoother. An infinite list of food items were there. The staff and manager at the wedding venues were excellent. As an event coordinator, they made my job extremely easy.
