Last weekend was truly an emotional weekend for weddings in the Northern Rivers region. The area was hit with the worst flooding in almost 50 years and many couple’s weddings were affected. Roads were cut in all directions which meant wedding guests and suppliers simply weren’t able to reach their destination.
For Kimberley and Shane, several of their guests were trapped north of Byron Bay and the disappointment was obvious. Tears were flowing, stress levels were high, but then at the last minute, while Shane was patiently waiting for his bride-to-be, a group of guests came sprinting across the fields and made it to the ceremony literally seconds before Kim arrived.
Luck it seemed was definitely on Kim and Shane’s side. The clouds parted and the couple were married under the first patch of blue sky I had seen for what seemed like weeks.
This set the tone for the rest of the day. Kim and Shane exchanged vows, with their gorgeous daughter Luella in their arms, at Elements of Byron’s beautiful Heart of the Bay in front of their closest family and friends, to the acoustic tunes of Luke & Sebastian.
The reception was held back at the resort, where everyone enjoyed themselves long into the evening.
