Real Wedding Chris and Angela

Let us introduce you to Chris and Angela Barwick’s Wedding.

Few things are as stressful as losing your luggage at the airport, but Chris had even more reason to stress than most. After six years together Chris was finally ready to pop the question, but the ring he had had specially designed for Angela was now lost in transit between Launceston and the would be romantic proposal location, the Whitsundays. “Ange was stressing out, and I was trying to keep calm so she didn’t get suspicious. I was kicking myself because I had originally planned to keep the ring on me, but Mum convinced me to pack it away in case I got caught up at security. Thanks Mum.” Luggage recovered, Chris decided that their second night in was going to be the night for the big reveal. “Chris asked me if I wanted to go for a walk and I got really cranky at him, I just wanted to stay at the poolside cocktail bar. I was not impressed.” And then to top it all off, once that ring finally made it onto Angela’s finger, the setting broke off from the ring, and they nearly lost it amongst the sand dunes.

A bad omen? The Universe trying to tell them something, maybe? Hardly, Chris and Angela are the kind of people who can laugh at themselves and see the humour in life’s little hiccups. “It’s when things don’t go according to plan that the best memories are made.” It’s these moments that they shared with me as I asked them about their wedding day, and what made it special. Like the precarious trip to the ceremony in a newly restored Austin, the best man not being able to button his suit pants up, and the forty minutes it took for Chris to get all the hair pins out of Angela’s hair on their wedding night.

They explained that they decided to get married at the Tailrace Centre after attending one of the Wedding Taste and See events. “Sharon introduced the shared banquet and said that it really encourages your guests to engage with each other. Afterwards we were amazed by how well it had worked, we found out so much about the other couples sitting around our table that we wouldn’t have if we’d each had our own separate meals.”

Angela was not your typical little girl who grew up fantasising about her wedding day. “My Grandma gave me her wedding dress to play dress ups with and I took it out and got it all torn up and muddy.” I loved hearing about her talk about how she broke the mould of a ‘traditional wedding’ and threw in her own creative touches. From handmade paper flower bouquets, a man of honour, and a rainbow backed wedding
