Wedding Reception | 24 September 2016 | Kasey & Ben Boulton | Silos Estate & Restaurant, Berry, South Coast

by

Kasey and Ben’s wedding day was filled with the warmth and love of their family and friends plus as an added bonus, the weather gods came to the party by turning on a beautiful South Coast day which was just perfect to celebrate the beginning of their together forever journey. Kasey and Ben selected Silos Restaurant as the location for their reception. Silos is located on a green hill just outside Berry, which features two silos that almost a century ago was used to store grain.

The love story of Kasey & Ben began in August/September of 2008 when they went on a double date arranged by Kasey’s best friend. Both were feeling very nervous, but by the end of that evening they had exchanged their first kiss and the rest is history. Four years later they moved in together and on 16 July 2015, Ben arranged a weekend away in the Blue Mountains, where he could not have organised a more romantically perfect setting to ask Kasey to be his wife. Snow, roses and champagne, Kasey in tears when asked and the answer was a resounding yes!

They exchanged vows and became one at St. Marys Star Of The Sea in Gerringong earlier in the afternoon then returned to Silos for photographs around the picturesque property whilst guests enjoyed wine tasting. Soon it was time to commence the festivities! Entering to two songs from Grease by Olivia Newton John & John Travolta, the wedding party, then Kasey and Ben entered the Marquee adjacent to Silos Restaurant to great applause and twirling napkins!

Following an exquisite entrée, it was time for our first set of speeches. First up was Ben’s Grandfather Mick, then Ben’s Mum Vicki and followed by Kasey’s Dad Peter. Lovely speeches from each one of them with beautiful sentiments being expressed about our newlyweds. An emotional father daughter dance then captivated the guests as Kasey and Peter shared a special moment on the dance floor. Some fun with the Newlywed Game and then it was time for guests to enjoy the delicious main meal.

The second set of speeches commenced with Maid of Honour Hannah recounting the story of the first date. Best man and Ben’s younger brother, Josh was next and last but not least, the man of the moment, Ben! Ben expressed how he always dreamed of his wedding day, how it would be and the type of person his wife would be. He went on to convey how Kasey exceeded his dream and vision of the person he would marry and how this wedding day was better than he ever imagined. The love Ben has for Kasey is obvious, he does not hide it and it is returned in spadesful by Kasey – truly they are a perfect match!

At the end of the speech it was time for their first dance as husband and wife to a very unique version of Keith Urban’s “Your Everything” – another special moment which Kasey and Ben will remember forever and once again captivating the guests. They then cut their wedding cake before Ben shared a dance with his mum, Vicki – which was just beautiful. It was now party time, time for everybody to let their hair down and have some fun!

In what seemed to be too soon, it had come to the time to start wrapping up the festivities, but not before the bouquet toss, garter toss, everybody joining in on the dance floor for one final dance and then Kasey and Ben departing through a guard of honour to commence their happy ever after!

Kasey and Ben, it was nothing but a joy to get to know you both along with your family & friends. I feel blessed to have been granted the huge honour to play a part in your amazing wedding day as your South Coast Wedding MC and South Coast Wedding DJ. I feel privileged to have witnessed first hand how much you both love, cherish and how devoted you are to each other. It makes my heart happy to see how you both value family and friendships. It was nothing but a pleasure every step of the way and I know that your love will continue to grow with every passing day. To echo words spoken by Ben’s mum Vicki, love is all you need and if you have love, nothing is impossible and happiness is assured! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Wedding Ceremony & Reception | 12 December 2012 | Kingfisher Bay Resort, Fraser Island, Queensland

by

Guests gathered on the beach at Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island, Queensland on Wednesday 12.12.12 at 12 noon to witness Iori and David’s wedding ceremony which commenced at precisely 12:12 pm. of course! I will expand a little on the day in a moment, but first please listen to the recording from ABC Radio.


Iori and David have requested privacy, however have given permission for some photographs to be posted on this Blog. The only photograph which depicts them, has been digitally modified to honour their privacy request.

As the guests arrived for the ceremony at 12 noon, they were greeted with the Telstra Timecall “At the third stroke it will be 11:59:30, 11:59:40, 11:59:50 and 12:00 precisely” followed by the three pips in each instance. With David waiting with his best man, some precise timing and the assistance of the Kingfisher Bay Resort events staff using two way radios, we were able to orchestrate Iori’s arrival to be at David’s side ready for the ceremony to commence at precisely 12:12 (denoted by the Telstra Timecall, ” At the third stroke it will be 12:12 precisely” followed by the three pips and verified with the Internet), in fact I dare say it was more like 12:12:12, as the time clicked over to 12:12 immediately after the first pip!!!!

Celebrant, David Proctor, performed a beautiful ceremony as the 35 invited guests, consisting of Iori and David’s dearest family and friends, witnessed their exchange of vows, the signing of the register, blending of the coloured sands and their first kiss as husband and wife.

Following the ceremony, whilst Iori and David went off around the Island for photographs, guests had some free time, before gathering in their Villa for canapés and drinks. A short time later Iori and David entered the Villa and mingled with guests till 5:00 pm when guests were taken to the Jetty Bar for more drinks and to watch the sunset (which I am told was quite spectacular!). While guests were down at the Jetty Bar, I moved the equipment from the Villa and set it up for the reception on the Dingo Deck overlooking the pool.

At 7:00 pm the guests started to arrive from The Jetty Bar for Iori and David’s Cocktail Reception. It was a lovely relaxed reception in a beautiful location and definitely suited their style. A little while later there were speeches from Iori’s sister, the Best Man and of course Iori and David. The cutting of the cake, first dance and then it was party time with Gangnam Style being the hit of the night! Bouquet presentation, garter toss, farewell circle and an invitation for those that wished to return to the Villa for a little after party, which finished at 12 Midnight precisely (as you would expect!!!)

It was such a great pleasure and honour to be a part of this very special wedding, 1200 odd kilometres from home. Iori and David are very much in love, they love their friends and family and opened their hearts to all those present – I feel very privileged to have witnessed the connection they share. Enjoy your European honeymoon  and may love, laughter and music continue to fill your lives forever!!
