Katie and Brett met in August of 2009, Katie thought Brett was a great dancer and Brett thought Katie was very pretty as he watched her from the other side of the room. Not long after, they had arranged to go for coffee, but Brett suggested they go to dinner instead – and dinner it was at Cronulla’s Little Italy Restaurant. Whilst Katie realised she was in love with Brett after a few weeks, it was not until a few months later that Brett realised he was in love with Katie…..and so this was the beginning of a beautiful love story.
Two years later, in August 2011, Brett proposed on a trip away to Berry. Brett had it all planned, An early morning 1 kilometre hike up to Cambewarra Lookout to watch the sunrise and as the sun rose he would propose. Unfortunately, when they got there, the lookout was closed. Not to be deterred, Brett suggested they jump the fence – which they did. He lost his bearings in all the excitement and couldn’t quite work out which way was east. Anyway, as much as I hate to cut a beautiful story short, Brett proposed, Katie said yes, she shed a tear or two, and here were were at The Tea Room Queen Victoria Building in Sydney to celebrate their lifelong commitment.
Guests arrived and were welcomed with canapés and refreshments whilst Katie, Brett and their wedding party had photographs in and around the Queen Victoria Building. A little while later they were all welcomed with rapturous applause from the 120 invited family and friends. A delicious entree and it was time for the first segment of speeches. First up was Katie’s mum, Kathleen, followed by Brett’s dad, Ray and finishing with Matron of Honour, Suzy. All conveyed beautiful sentiments and it was abundantly clear that Katie and Brett are very much loved.
A delectable main course and it was a very humourous speech from Best Man, Michael and lovely words from Brett. Dessert followed, then the Cake Cutting before Katie & Brett shared their first dance as husband and wife. The wedding party and parents joined them part way through, followed by the remainder of the guests, then the party really began.
The bouquet and garter toss, followed by a ‘Catchers Dance’ where the two lucky catchers were asked to have a special dance together – and being good sports they of course obliged. More dancing, Katie and Brett being lifted into the air and much more fun. In what seemed like no time at all, it time to say goodbye. A farewell dance with all the guests before Katie and Brett departed to start their new life together.
It was a beautiful relaxed and sophisticated wedding that was loads of fun. Katie and Brett are two beautiful and amazing people – they light each other up and everyone around them and along with their fun wedding party, it was such a joy to be a part of their wedding day as their Sydney Wedding DJ and MC. Thank you for entrusting me and inviting me to be a part of your fabulous wedding day. Have a wonderful and enjoyable honeymoon and may love, laughter and music continue to fill your lives forever!!
