Brian & Minnie's Fin's Plantation House wedding will have me buzzing for many moons to come!! On their Big Day which is also your fav Celebrants B'day, we dodged the predicted deluge of rain and I was super grateful to be rocking the mic. Fins is one of my fav Tweed Coast Wedding venues and damn we had such a great time rocking this epic wedding. Sometimes everything just falls into place, an amazing couple, a crowd ready to party and a world class vista as the back drop. Not even the Groom's transport not turning up on time & forcing him to arrive literally, just on time, could fault this day in anyway. Are you getting my vibes about just how good this one was!?!
Our lovebirds crossed paths 30,000 feet in the sky on a Jet Star flight to Sydney. Brian's good mate John, who's 6ft 4 tall, was accidentally kneeing Minnie in the back. She turned around to tell him where to shove his legs and met Brian. The charming & witty Englishman who'd consumed a few Pale Ales prior to them meeting. As cool as you like Brian suggested Minnie put some Sydney highlights in his phone to check out and also to leave her number so they could catch up again on the GC again. Soooo Gooood!! What are the chances!!!!! They went out for breakfast, connected and when the time was right, feel madly in love. Their ceremony was so fun and we had their whole crew of VIP's in the pocket and there were so many happy tears. So outrageously stoked for Brian & Minnie!!!
What they said about me: Look up the definition of 'Bees Knees for Celebrants' in the dictionary and you will fin Ben Carlyle's name!! From our first meeting with Ben we knew he was the humble soul to officiate our special day. He is so relaxed and modest. You will not leave a meeting with Ben without a huge smile on your face. His positive, loving vibes are contagious and he brought these, plus some for our wedding day. He took the time to get to know us and what we wanted for our ceremony. He kept it unique, representing us perfectly!
He took Brain for a surf the morning of the wedding to chill him out and kept me laughing as I waited in the limo for my late groom. He kept our ceremony casual and light, exactly what we wanted. He interacted with our guests, so many thought he was a close a close friend of ours. Ben has a way of keeping you very present in those imperative moments. He made it feel like it was just us three and not the 100+ guests watching us declare our love to the world. Ben knew exactly what to say to us prior and during the ceremony to kill off our butterflies and to remind us what we were doing!
Ben would just ride the waves of our ceremony with us, laughing at anything that wasn't going to plan, adding more jokes to make us all just laugh it off.
Ben you were everything Brian and I had envisioned, thank you for everything. If you're about to get married, snatch Ben up quick he will not be a disappointment!!
