Time and time again you’ll hear the same songs at wedding ceremonies – but Metallica probably isn’t one of them.
Chelsey Ryan, 29, and Scott Williams, 31, married at their classic wedding on October 2, 2015 with 80 guests. “Music is a huge part in our lives with us loving an array of music genres,” explains Chelsey. “I walked down the aisle to Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters,” the acoustics in the chapel – which features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Coomera River – was out of this world.”
Rewind three years to when Scott proposed, which Chelsey said was “breathtakingly beautiful,” because he involved their then three-month-old daughter Eva. “He turned Eva to face me and as I read the words ‘Mummy will you marry Daddy?’ [written on her singlet] he asked me if I would marry him.”
The couple chose the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort for both the ceremony and reception, I choice they don’t regret. “The venue was spectacular, we wanted our wedding to reflect a classic yet simplicity feel,” smiles Chelsey. “We were able to achieve this by keeping decorations to a minimum and allowing the stunning venue to be the statement piece.”

“We have three beautiful daughters and even though marriage is a union between two people, for us it was all about us as a family,” says Chelsey.
