Kaylie & Patrick relive first kiss at their vintage beach wedding

Wedding: 22/02/2014

Posted by Kellie | 15 February, 2015

Kaylie Harrison, 29, and Patrick Chaplin, 32, returned to the scene of the crime for their vintage beach wedding.

“My beautiful husband and I met and shared our first kiss at a caravan park called Kioloa Beach on the south coast of NSW when we were just kids,” explains Kaylie. Fast forward 15 years later and Patrick proposed. The choice of wedding venue was an obvious one. “We decided we wanted to share our first kiss as husband and wife and celebrate out love where it all began,” says Kaylie.

So with their 180 guests, the pair headed to Kioloa Beach on the NSW south coast for their February 22, 2014 wedding. “Hours, days and weeks were spent with gorgeous family and friends hand making so many lovely items for the day,” smiles Kaylie. “We had to organise and truck down pretty much everything ourselves.”

A décor highlight, among many, were the several rustic wooden road signs Kaylie made to lead their guests from 135km away. “It took a lot of hard work and lots of lovely helping hands but we created the most beautiful setting.”

Aww when I saw the pictures I knew it was that secret little spot Kioloa straight away. I have fond memories of that place from when I was a kid.
