She worked at the university he was studying at. Anita and Murray hit it off straight away. In fact, they say there are undoubtedly soul mates. They sure have a lot of fun together, which is evident in their fair wedding theme, complete with lollypop stand and ferris wheel. You have to love it!

The Special Moments
My favourite moment was reading our beautiful vows that we wrote to each other. Murray wrote his on the back of an invoice which was funny and mine was scrapbooked to perfection in the shape of a heart. We both wrote similar things but in different ways. It was my favourite moment. Another great part of our wedding was having a few rides at Aussie World open for our guests to enjoy before the reception. It really made our wedding unique and fun for all.
The ceremony was perfect. I was so nervous and scared of that moment in front of everyone but when I got to the alter I felt so comfortable up there.
On an unplanned visit to a bridal shop with my Mum I found my dream dress straight away.
Our Parents came with us to see venue options on the Sunshine Coast and without their support and generous contribution our magical day would not have been possible.
Special Family Moments
I made sure our mum’s got pampered with hair and makeup on the day with me and my bridesmaids. My Brother walked me down the aisle which was sweet. My Sister and Murray’s Brother were in our Bridal Party. I especially enjoyed ribboning up my own car (the wedding car) with my Father in Law.
