I’m starting 2014 with a beach filled love fest.
After I first met Liezel and Roy to discuss their wedding plans, I came away feeling like I’d already made two new friends. Roy’s face was so familiar and after some discussion, we realised that not only did we grow up almost next to each other back in Melbourne, we went to the same university and knew some of the same people. It can feel like such a small World sometimes.
Their wedding in Sri Lanka was an amazing experience. Not only did I get the chance to explore the beauty of a new country, I was able to get to know so many great people. Liezel and Roy have a relationship to be envied. Together they are fun-loving, adventurous and ooze such a calm presence. Numerous times I witnessed them deal with things that would have sent most bride/grooms into a frustrated, panicked frenzy. Not these two – they worked calmly together to get things done.
Liezel and Roy had a lovely ceremony on the beach of Mt Lavinia. The ceremony set up was so beautiful which was the result of the hard work of Liezel’s cousin and wonderful wedding planner Stefan. After they exchanged their personal vows, Liezel’s talented sister Hailey sang for them and after their first dance (which was so fun!) there was a surprise fireworks display. The night was warm and humid and everyone partied into the wee hours of the morning under the starry tropical skies. These two and their loved ones definitely know how to party that’s for sure!
Liezel and Roy, thank you so much for making me feel so welcome into your closest circles. Thank you for trusting me with your big day and I look forward to our continued friendship.
