In sickness and in health: Kirsty and Kris’ gorgeous golf club wedding

Wedding: 21/05/2016

Posted by Kellie | 25 August, 2016

One week after meeting, Kirsty Powell and Kris Pendlington were testing out their future marriage vows. 

The Gladstone, Queensland pair had hit it off chatting online and agreed to meet. But a week later Kris was badly assaulted so the relationship hit fast-forward as Kirsty helped care for him during his recovery. “That was the best decision I’ve ever made because, as cliched as it is, I knew from the moment I met him that he was the man I wanted to be with,” explains Kirsty, 27, of Kris, 29. “This time enabled us to get to know each other while I was looking after him.”

Before long they were engaged, and on May 21, 2016, they married in a gorgeous golf club wedding with 60 guests on Hope Island.

The bride, who ravished in a modified Mori Lee gown, says it was a “breathtaking” day, celebrated with her two young children, who by then, were already calling Kris ‘Dad’.

“Kris is the best thing that’s ever happened to my children and me,” says Kirsty. “He came along and taught me how to love again, how to love myself again which is so important and, perhaps the most amazing thing, that it was possible to fully and completely trust again.”

“I will be forever grateful for this amazing man.”
