What an incredible day it was for Stephanie & Christopher’s wedding! Fun, relaxed, emotional… it was everything you would want your wedding day to be.
My day started with the boys’ preparation in Ballina at the Groom’s parents house… and conveniently also at their personal hairstylist who lives right nextdoor! The girls were all getting ready at the couple’s home in Cumbalum, before being whisked away to Bangalow by Forever Kombis.
I can honestly say that I have never seen The Moller Pavilion at Bangalow Showgrounds look as good as it did for Steph & Chris’ wedding. The couple did an incredible job with their rustic styling and The Alstonville Florist really outdid themselves with dressing the arbor and all the other floral delights.
As everyone gathered under the big ol’ fig tree, we could see the Kombi with the bridesmaids arrive at the entrance… but then it stood still… for much longer than Chris anticipated. Was it cold feet? A breakdown? Change of heart?? Thankfully not, somehow the gate that had just been unlocked minutes before had been locked again. Once everyone realised what the issue was, one of the groomsmen ran down to meet the Kombi with a key. At the same time, a couple of cheeky cows had decided to make their way through another gate to see what everyone was congregating under the tree for. Another groomsmen was tasked with herding the cattle back, and after a short while, everything was back on track.
The rest of the day ran like clockwork. Michelle Shannon delivered a beautifully heartfelt service (as she always does). The bridal party and I shot around the showgrounds and the main street of Bangalow before heading back to the Moller pavilion where the party really started.
