Felicity and Jim plan whirlwind country wedding in 25 days

Wedding: 25/04/2015

Posted by Kellie | 7 June, 2016

Can the wedding of your dreams be planned in 25 days? Felicity and Jim Seaman proved it can.

The Bathurst, NSW couple, aged 28 and 24 respectively, met and experienced what the bride describes as a whirlwind romance. The relationship took the city girl to the country, with the pair living together within months of meeting.

But times ahead were never going to be easy once Felicity’s mum was diagnosed with mesothelioma – a type of cancer. Felicity’s four younger siblings needed a lot of care while their mum sought treatment. “Jim is a farmer and it was not an uncommon sight to see him and four children head off to work in the morning to drench sheep, fix fences, or any other jobs that needed to be done,” explains Felicity.

When the outlook worsened, and the couple realised their role as guardians of the children was going to come sooner rather than later, Jim popped the question. “It was not your usual down-on-one-knee, romantic proposal, but it was the most special thing in the world,” smiles Felicity.

But with a small window to get married due to the shearing season, the country wedding only had a 25-day planning opportunity. They married on April 25, 2015 in the presence of 45 guests at the Wyagdon family property. “It was the most amazing day of our lives,” beams the bride.

“Our relationship has withstood some incredibly testing times, that were either going to make us or break us,” says the bride.
