Leah and Jed’s wedding was awesome!! Perfect weather, gorgeous couple, stunning rustic venue on the South Coast, simple not-over-the-top amazing details which completely represented Leah and Jed plus a lot of fun really made their wedding shine! So much love went into making it the amazing day it was.
Leah and Jed are genuinely lovely and thoughtful people and it was so wonderful to witness them celebrating their marriage surrounded by so many close family and friends. Jed’s brother, Rohan and his family even made the trek from Germany, where he lives and works, plus endured the mandatory Covid quarantine period just so that he could attend the wedding and act as Jed’s Best Man.
Whilst the wedding was rustic, the way they met was very modern….on Tinder! It seems simple to just swipe right when something about someone catches your eye, but there is always something much more beautiful as to why they were drawn to each other. For Leah it was Jed’s smile! For Jed it was Leah’s eyes! They instantly swiped right and after about a month of chatting electronically, decided that they were comfortable enough to meet up in person.
That meeting led to a love that has grown and grown, their adorable little daughter Lyla, a shared passion for renovating their home and making it their own and a proposal in July 2020 which led us to their wedding day.
The location of the wedding ceremony and reception was Terara Park which is located at Terara on the fertile river flats of the Shoalhaven River three kilometres east of Nowra. With a stunning jetty overhanging the dam, complete with row boat and lush outdoor area made for a very picturesque ceremony. The simple, yet beautiful and meaningful ceremony, officiated by Joanne Novich Marriage Celebrant, celebrated their journey to this point, their love for each other and their shared love for Lyla. Cheers and applause followed as they were pronounced husband and wife!
Whilst Leah, Jed and the wedding party had photos around the property, guests were able to relax around the rustic surrounds which included outdoor fire pits, a luscious grazing table with delicable delights to enjoy, cold beverages and a games area. The rest of the evening was filled with love, laughter, delicious food, fun & games, dancing and relaxing.
I always struggle to find the right words to explain how grateful I am for the the couples who entrust me with the responsibility as their South Coast Wedding MC & South Coast Wedding DJ; Leah and Jed, it was truly an honour that I was able to play a part in your amazing wedding day, I loved seeing you both together, the gentle tenderness, the light hearted banter, how generous you are with yourselves and your warmth with everyone. Have a lifetime of laughs, an eternity of love, and an abundance of happiness as you start this new chapter as Mr & Mrs! May love, laughter and music continue to fill your lives forever!!
