Cruising into love: Kim and Vafa marry at rustic wedding in Cairns

Wedding: 06/05/2017

Posted by Anna | 20 August, 2017

It’s traditional for a bride to be fashionably late on her wedding day, but car trouble meant this Cairns bride-to-be was a little more delayed than hoped.

Kim Morlin married her beau Vafa Aminpour, both aged 30, at their rustic wedding on May 6, 2017 at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal. “Vafa’s nerves started to kick in when I was late to the ceremony as my dad who was driving us over to the venue couldn’t get the car to start,” laughs Kim. But eventually she made it down the aisle, walking to Vafa accompanied by a live performance of James Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go. Ninety guests witnessed their vows.

“The Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal was the most perfect venue with its polished concrete floors and industrial feel, and the stunning backdrop of the Trinity Inlet,” explains the bride. “The speeches made for loads of laughter and left not a single dry eye in the house. We danced the night away and had to pay the providers extra so that we could stay longer than originally planned!”

Kim and Vafa, both bankers, consider themselves each other’s perfect match. “We think alike, both know when to be silly and when to be serious,” she explains. “We laugh together every day, and couldn’t imagine life without each other.”
