Wedding Reception | 9 April 2016 | Cassie & Ben Kirton | The Carrington, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

"No person really decides before they grow up who they are going to marry. God decides it all the way before and later on, you find out who you are stuck with." ~ Kirsten Age 10

Cassie and Ben first met at an 18th birthday party of a mutual friend in 2008 and whilst they can't recall the exact circumstances of the meeting, this was to be the beginning of their wonderful love story. A few months later they realised they were falling in love. Within twelve months following this, they knew they could not live without the other, but it took some time despite constant hints from family and friends for Ben to pop the question.

In May 2015 Ben arranged a trip up to the Gold Coast as part of Cassie's Birthday celebration. He had organised a Hot Air Balloon ride on which he was intending to propose, but decided against it at the last minute and proposed before going out to dinner that evening. A surprised Cassie of course said yes and here we were celebrating this beautiful couples wedding!

Cassie and Ben exchanged vows at Our Lady of the Nativity in Lawson. Family and friends then made their way to The Carrington in Katoomba for the reception. They were greeted with canap├ęs and drinks in the Lounge before settling into the Grand Dining Room for the evenings festivities. A short time later everybody enthusiastically welcomed the members of their wedding party but saved the biggest welcome for Cassie and Ben; who were surprised with everybody cheering and twirling napkins in the air as they entered the room!

After the entrees, we heard from Cassie's brother Eric, Ben's Godfather Bill and the Chaplain from Ben's school Chris, who is affectionately known as "Chappy". During this time we heard some wonderful heartfelt stories about Cassie and Ben, how their relationship developed and how perfect they truly are for each other. A little bit of fun then followed with the Newlywed Game.

The main meal was then enjoyed. It was then time to hear beautiful words from Matron of Honour, Abby and a humourous story or two from Best Man, Sam. Last but not least it was Ben's turn and with Cassie standing by his side, he thanked everybody for attending, a special thank you to Cassie's mum, Deborah and to those that had travelled before ending by thanking Cassie for being his wife and expressing how happy she had made him in doing so. The speech ended with a loving kiss for his stunning bride.

Dessert was then served, Cassie & Ben cut their wedding cake and a special first dance before being joined by the wedding party and guests on the dance floor. All too soon it was time for the bouquet and garter toss, farewell circle and a journey through a tunnel of love as Cassie and Ben departed to commence their married life together and this beautiful, intimate, loving reception came to an end.

Cassie and Ben you are both beautiful individuals and together make a very special couple. I can tell how much you are loved by your family and friends and how happy they are that you both have decided to take this next step in your relationship. I know you are both very excited about the future, your new home and the many new adventures that lie ahead. Thank you for allowing me to play some part in your very special day as your Blue Mountains Wedding DJ & MC, it was nothing but a total pleasure getting to know you both and witnessing the happiness and deep love you both have for each other. I know this love will continue to grow throughout your together forever and to reference Kristen Age 10 above, I am so glad that God decided you two should be stuck with each other! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!
