Four years ago, Danyelle spotted Trent at a youth church event when she was in year 12. She thought he was the most handsome man she had ever seen, and instantly fell in love. They were both a little shy to make the first move to speak to one another, but they managed to curb the nerves. After their first meeting, they got to know one another some more and it wasn’t long before Danyelle says she knew he was The One. And the rest is history, as they say…
Their wedding ceremony at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Maleny was full of heartfelt tears (mostly the groom’s), lots of smiles (mostly the bride’s), and lots of faith, starting with the Pastor’s, who officiated his niece’s marriage to her one and only.

“The morning of the wedding I was so chilled everything was happening at once but I just kept laughing with my girls and we had music going dancing laughing. There’s no point at all stressing as everything is already planned all you can do now is go with the moments and enjoy them!” “I remember the reveal to my dad… he turned around and straight away lost it, started crying his eyes out with tears. This was incredible for me because no one, not even my mum, had ever seen my dad shed a tear and here he was balling his eyes out over me. It made me feel so loved and special.”“The best thing I would say was just realising how much impacting love was there that day.” “As I was walking down the aisle, there was my groom, Trent, also lost it crying his eyes out. The poor best man didn’t have enough tissues, as he didn’t think Trent would cry so much, so my uncle, who was the pastor, had to give him his hanky.” “Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I was very blessed and had a lot of support from my bridesmaids and my mum, she was one of my biggest supports, without her my wedding wouldn’t of been the same! But most of all just enjoy the excitement and try not to worry.” “To be completely honest I would not change a single thing and I mean it one hundred percent. It was the most relaxing amazing beautiful enjoyable day ever and I love reliving the memories in my head over and over!”“(The proposal) was absolutely amazing; at our favorite beach spot on the cliff over looking the beach and he had four candles set around us. He had also brought a blanket for us to sit in and cuddle, while he started reading me a love poem from a book I had recently given him. As I was just thinking, ‘This is so dreamy’, he then gets down on one knee and I swear I couldn’t feel my heart beat, I had butterflies all over when he asked me, ‘Danyelle, wlll you marry me?’ I leaped with joy and said, ‘Of course I will!’ and hugged him so tight we almost lost the ring down the cliff.” “I found it very had to cut people off our wedding list. It came down to us deciding not to have kids at our wedding which did upset a few people but it all worked out in the end.”
