Queensland Beach Wedding Venue – Lara & Shannon
Lara and Shannon completely and utterly blew us away with their kindness and love for each other. We can honestly say from the bottom of our hearts that it was our pleasure to work for this amazing group of people.
Shannon and Lara were married at our Queensland Beach Wedding Venue on Sunday the 20th of September 2015 with the sand beneath their feet and the sun managing to break through the clouds which turned into a beautiful sunny day just for them! Lara had two gorgeous bridesmaids and a brides-man dressed in blue to perfectly complement their beach theme, whilst Shannon had three strapping young groomsmen by his side. Shannon and his groomsmen were standing under our beach arbour and listening to the voice of their talented friend singing “Somewhere over the Rainbow” and playing the ukulele. What a sight this was especially when Lara started walking down the aisle. She completely blew us away so we can only imagine what her groom-to-be, Shannon was thinking.
The singing didn’t stop there though! Once our bride, groom and guests had entered the room at our Queensland Beach Wedding Venue it was time for some well-earned food and speeches. Lara and Shannon’s speeches definitely weren’t like the normal speeches as majority of the guests were up and signing traditional New Zealand songs including the Haka. Shannon went to school with our fantastic recommended entertainer Dr Love and even he joined in on doing the Haka which was a great sight to see.
You could really tell how close this family was and we had tears in our eyes when Shannon stood up and serenaded Lara with the beautiful song, “Stand By Me” as his speech! We were honoured to be a part of this wedding and the team at An Island Hideaway wish this beautiful couple all of the love and happiness in the world!
