Antony and Lyndall

The boys wore Van Heusen black pinstripe suits with white shirts from Myer. Tony wore a cream shirt which matched perfectly with my ivory dress.  They wore black Havaianas for the ceremony and their own black shoes for the reception. We found the turquoise stripe ties at Tarocash.

Our beautiful son and pageboy Hunter wore a black Fred Bracks suit and Mossimo shirt from Myer. His blue tie was from David Jones, black shoes from Pumpkin Patch and thongs by Hi-Hop.

The buttonholes, corsages and bouquets were styled by my friend Blaise who flew all the way from outback Queensland for the big day. The bouquets were arm sheath style with white oriental lilies and Singapore orchids. It was so nice to have her make them at the last minute. About two months before the wedding, the lady who had been booked to make them cancelled on me. So Blaise had to organise everything over the phone and through email. What she made was better than I had originally pictured!

Our reception venue and ceremony location were set up by Raelene Ryl from Confetti Events. Some friends and I also went down to help in the morning. It was so good to see what it was going to look like after so many months of deciding on the lay out.

The table decorations included driftwood and shells which we found on local beaches in the lead up to the wedding. My sister Tamara’s friend, Eliza made beautiful palm wax candles and my sister Michelle’s friend, Tania made clam shells filled with smaller shells from beaches near Wickham, WA. We used these as table decorations and as thank you gifts for family and friends who helped on the day.

Brian Willoughby let us borrow his old aqua and white Vauxhall as our Bridal Car. My Uncle ‘Bishy’ drove for myself, my dad and my eight year old niece. The usually five minute drive to the Twilight Beach seemed to take forever in the old car! My younger brother Cam drove his Ford and family friend Alan Oliver drove his Holden for the day. They were both modern and similar colours so we used these as the other bridal party cars. That Sunday was also the Bathurst Supercheap 1000 (car race) so the boys were watching and listening to the race most of the day. Tony was very glad to hear that Holden won the race!

I was planning to walk down the aisle to “I will” by the Beatles but was too impatient to see Tony so I followed my bridesmaids down the sandy path with “All You Need is Love”. I love anything by the Beatles so it didn’t matter that much and we were already quite late by that stage.

We had dried fish scales in blue buckets instead of petals for the flower girls to scatter and bubbles and pinwheels to please the children at the ceremony.

My sister Michelle read a poem for us that was very special to me.

We wrote our own vows and included Hunter’s favourite saying “… to infinity and beyond!”. That made our guests smile!

After the ceremony we had photos taken at West Beach looking over Dempster Head. While we were there we noticed some whales in the water below. It was beautiful to see! Then we had photos taken at Castletown beach with the old broken jetty and also at the Tanker Street Jetty.
