Kayliegh and Theo create memories at elegant rustic wedding

Wedding: 05/12/2015

Posted by Kellie | 23 May, 2016

The proposal is a moment that is normally contained to the memory banks.

But Theo Allen wanted to make sure when he popped the big question to Kayliegh Cowell, it would be a milestone they would remember in many years to come. After just six months together, the 22-year-old resort worker hired a photographer to catch the moment that he proposed to his love, a 24-year-old primary school teacher.

“Theo proposed on our six-month anniversary at Tangalooma Island Resort – where he now coincidentally works,” explains Kayliegh. “We were walking along the beach when he suddenly stopped and asked me to marry him – he even had a sneaky photographer hiding in the bushes to capture the moment!”

The couple, who had attended the same high school before they officially met and started dating, married at their elegant rustic wedding on December 5, 2015. Cherbon Waters in Burbank, Brisbane, was an ideal waterside location for both ceremony and reception, celebrated with 60 guests. “Our theme was rustic vintage with a touch of elegance,” explains Kayliegh.

Making use of a long engagement, the pair took time to create much of the day. “We DIY’ed a great deal of our wedding from all the stationery right down to the beautiful ring pillow my mother hand-sewed for us,” smiles the bride. And the newlyweds headed back to Tangalooma for their honeymoon!
