Let’s do it! You need this celebration! When I meet Jas and Josh back in February 2019, they explained their story to me and I’ve never heard so much pain and suffering from a couple and the fact they supported each other through these bad times was a testament to them both. They hadn’t started on their wedding plans and engaged my services to bring the complete wedding together with them booking a couple of items and we set a date for the 21st of October 2020, sadly throughout our planning Jas Lost her mum who is also her best friend and decided she could get married without her and they suggested it wasn’t the right time and we put the wedding on hold for a few months and see how we felt then, a couple of months later they were still unsure and I felt the raw pain they were both suffering and I suggested that I think you have been through so much that you need something to look forward to, you deserve a celebration and you need it. A few weeks later Josh calls and he said Let’s do it! We are bringing the wedding forward a whole 12 months and lets book / move all our bookings to the 21st of October 2019 leaving us only around 2 months to bring the wedding together and off we set, we booked a new venue at the Central Coast Leagues Club with the DJ mobilistic DJ’s, moved Videography Everlast video productions to the new date along with Ed Taylor our celebrant, we booked Ivy lane florist for styling and flowers and OMG booths for the photo booth, Jas booked her friend Shannon as the photographer, CMP Hair Artistry and the hair and makeup artist, and their friend Jake as the receptions live music, Jojo delivered the goods with the cake and lastly High class Limousines as the stretch Limo. Before we knew it the day had arrived and with a simplistic and simple themed wedding we promptly set up the ceremony and reception and before long guests were arriving. Soon after Jas and her bridal party arrived with a combination of Bridesmaids and Brideman they were looking stunning in all black attire. As Jas approached the ceremony four of the guests began the Haka adding a passionate and uplifting vibe to the ceremony about to happen, Ed delivered the ceremony with pure admiration for the couples love and relationship, recognising several guests who couldn’t be with them but there in spirt.
Once the ceremony was completed the bridal party went off for photos and video footage amongst the surrounding grounds, soon after it was time to kick the night off and food service has already began, the bridal party entered and as their MC I delivered a grand entry for the newlywed. We progressed into a few formalities and began with around 5 speeches filled with tears, stories and happiness, we broke for more food service and followed with again around 4-5 speeches and then progressed into a little fun with cutting the cake then the shoe game interesting many questioned were answered in agreeance which was lovely but equally entertaining and spread laughter amongst their guests, after the shoe game Jas and Josh for the first time had their first dance as Mr & Mrs Bobbin and began to party the night away. Towards the end of the night there were defiantly a few heavy heads and lots of drinks consumed but this wedding was every level of fun, happiness, tears and absolute appreciation for bringing their day together and making it happen. We could be prouder to assist Mr & Mrs Bobbin in making sure they had the special day they truly deserved and wish them every ounce of happiness as they embark on this wonderful new journey and Husband and Wife.
