Backyard Surprise Wedding

Nic & Kellie surprised their friends and family with a wedding in Nic’s family’s backyard. Nearly everyone thought it was just an engagement party but then late afternoon they gathered everyone together and announced they’d be getting married! Kellie’s friend Allison had the pleasure of officially marrying them too as she had just recently become a registered celebrant. How cool is it to have your friend marry you!?

A favourite moment for me would be seeing the looks on peoples faces when it was announced it was a wedding. And also when Nic & Kellie were first declared husband and wife! ❤
