Katie + Chris


Katie and Chris’ wedding was certainly a surprise for all in attendance, who were under the impression they were attending an engagement party. Read how the gorgeous event unfolded from the bride herself, and see some amazing imagery captured by Byron Loves Fawn below.

‘The engagement party had begun and the guests were arriving. At around 7.50pm, my bridesmaids and I snuck off separately into the secret room for our costume change. The boys then snuck off around ten minutes later. The guys got all set up standing next to the backdrop with Michelle Davis our incredible celebrant in the secret room. From what I hear, the staff at Settlers Run all of a sudden pushed open the temporary wall which made the engagement party and ceremony area one big room! The guests were surprised with the boys all standing up there proudly, our celebrant standing next to them, the chairs, aisle, candles, backdrop etc. They were all totally shocked; there were tears, gasps and total confusion. One of our guests heard someone say, ‘What are the boys doing up there? Are they performing a show for us?’ The guests all merged towards the ceremony area with quite a bit of caution, still unsure of exactly what was going on. Meanwhile us girls were being ushered in golf carts to the back of the building where we would start to make our way down the aisle. Our good friend Jack Johnstone was performing Northern Wind by City and Colour as we walked down. My dad met me at the entrance to walk with me. Our ceremony by Michelle Davis wedding celebrant was the perfect representation of who we are as a couple – relaxed, funny and full of love.’
