Having spent many a weekend away in Byron Bay, including one that resulted in an engagement ring on the third left, it was inevitable that Kelly and Scott would also be married in Byron, a place very special to them; “Byron Bay always was and will be a special place for us, we had many weekends there and it was the place that Scott proposed. Our dream is to one day set up a B&B in Byron and retire!”

Having worked a lot in event planning, Kelly collected ideas for months in the lead up. She says, ” I collected ideas that I wanted to have on our big day to create a very personalised ceremony and reception for our friends and family. The inspiration was a romantic vintage wedding, the venue was decorated with baby’s breath, vintage bottles and retro furniture, and on the tables instead of having traditional tablecloths we used doilies that were handmade by Scott’s nana and mum.”

Their romantic day was spotted with a few very lovely surprises too! “Scott’s friend, Joe, and Scott’s sister, Catherine, surprised us with a gig singing the songs that mean a lot to us. Meanwhile Scott’s friend Stephen who lives in the UK surprised us with his presence – he had a just born babe back home in Ireland!”

Deborah from Boots Photography was one of the very talented vendors working to make Kelly and Scott’s day a triumph. Kelly says, “The day was magical, everything went according with planning and the weather was amazing. Having my family and friends coming all the way from Brazil and Scott’s friends coming from all over Australia and Ireland made the day magical. We had a lot of our friends involved with the wedding preparation, music, decoration, sweets, hair, make up, bridesmaids dresses so it meant a lot that all of those elements had some love from our friends.”
