So it all started about 6 weeks ago (well maybe 7 now), My partners parents were living not far from us and my parents and grandparents where coming up for a visit, so all I needed was my nan nan (Josie) to come up aswell and we were going to surprise everyone with a wedding, my partner (now husband) and I have been together for 14.5 yrs, and our parents (mainly our mums) had been harrising us for yrs to get married, we had been engaged for 7 yrs and have 3 kids, so with my Nan nan agreeing to come up it was time to plane our surprise wedding, We decide to have it out on the wonderful Low isles just off of port douglas, which our parents knew we loved going out there and wanted to show the granparents, we got a wonderful celebrant and great photographer, who were all in on the surprise, the crew on the boat we went out on also knew and kept it a secret from our families, so the day finally arrived with no one none the wiser, the boat ride was a bit choppy, ( my poor boys and I were all sick on the way out) which worked out good as it gave me an exuse to go for a walk and be alone for a bit (get ready) so whilst I was getting ready our dads and my partners mum all went snorkeling, but my mum decided to come look for me and found out a bit earlier, she burst into tears when she seen my partner and took off on her own for a walk around the island, Jason sent our boys down to the beach to tell everyone to come up, by this stage my mum had calmed down, Everyone walked up and found the table and chairs and jason and our boys standing by the light house, the celebrant showed my dad where i was so he could walk me down the isle my little girl was our flower girl, and as I walked down the isle with my dad and daughter I couldnt help but smile, as I walked past everyone and as thier tears flowed of happiness, I knew we had done the right thing,

It was a fun ceramony with many photos taken, and the island is beautiful, we had more photos on the beach, Then once back on board we had a great lunch, It was a bit smoother ride on the way home and one of my boys fell asleep the other was next to me again as we were both very unwell, the other passangers on board all congratulated us, once back home I was feeling much better (thank goodness), No one could belive that we had good married, after so many yrs together we didnt want a big wedding something small and sweet all up we had 7 guest and it was the best day, even getting sea sick :)
