Kellie & Tom’s inner-city Hobart wedding wasn’t deterred by a chilly November spring day… Kellie shares some snippets from their big day.
Ours was a modern day ‘swipe right’ love story, and quite a whirlwind at that. We were engaged within 12 months of meeting, but we took some time planning the wedding, saving up for what we wanted and were married nearly two years later.
Rain, hail or shine
The weather on 24/11/18 was chilly and rainy, but someone was looking out for us, as the rain stopped while we wandered around the beautiful waterfront having our photos taken before hopping on the boat down to Peppermint Bay. The rainy weather picked up again and produced some big swell…. so the boat trip down the Derwent was quite a ride!
Full of Laughs
The best thing about our day is we just laughed the entire day. The speeches made our hearts swell and our smiles so wide our faces hurt the next day. We were surrounded by all of our favourite people who travelled from all over the country and it was just the best thing ever.
Our day was made even more special when we received amazing news on the Thursday leading up to it. My husband’s beautiful mum has been very unwell over the past few years, battling various forms of cancer. Two weeks before our wedding, a lump was detected in a routine scan and everyone- including her doctors, feared for the worst. Luckily, the results came back and everything was okay- nothing cancerous. Having our wedding the few days later was just a double celebration. Tom’s mum is his best friend, so having her there healthy and well was the greatest wedding gift we could have asked for.
