Destination Weddings by Mister & Lady | Thai-ing the knot
The Story of Leigh & Katelyn
Leigh told Katelyn she had to wear something comfortable and be prepared that she may not come home until the next day. His mother dropped them at the airport and he managed to walk Katelyn around the terminal and board a plane without her knowing its destination. An hour later they arrived in Canberra, checked into a hotel and made their way over towards the lawns of Lake Burley Griffin. His first surprise was a Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons concert, the next came during Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You when Leigh got down on one knee in the front row of the concert and asked Katelyn to marry him. Luckily she said yes!…to read more and see more pickies click here
On the island of Koh Samui in Thailand at Bandara Resort & Spa Leigh & Katelyn became man and wife. It was always going to be where they got married after holidaying there for the first time in March 2009. They fell in love with the atmosphere, weather, services and the people they became friends with. A destination wedding made perfect sense as they could have their family and closest friends celebrate with them whilst also enjoying a well earned holiday. It was to be the first time some of their relatives would travel overseas and the excitement became contagious from the moment they mentioned it would be where they would tie the knot.
All dressed and ready Katelyn stopped still for a moment, she had the most exciting & unexplainable feeling come over her. She realised she was about to see her loving Leigh & marry her best friend. The man who would make her laugh even in her darkest moments and even if it was at her own expense. Seeing Leigh’s face as she walked down those stairs will remain ingrained in her memory always. His unforgettable tears of joy & love make her tear up every time she thinks of that moment.
He first saw Katelyn walking down the stairs and onto the sand arm in arm with her parents by her side and he could not believe his luck. The woman of his dreams with the kindest heart and passion for life would soon be his wife and he had a lifetime of years to look forward to. An ear to his grievances and supportive beyond measure he would swear to adore her always and be as loyal to her and she had always been to him.
The years that follow would be full of their favourite ways to spend their time like taking their Pomeranian Bambi for a walk, cooking & eating some good food, enjoying the backyard deck at their newly built home & catching up on some of their fave TV shows. A couple who believe in laughter and it’s magic ability to cure most ailments. This would be their prescription for a happy and long life together.
