When Broome couple Eliza and Andy decided to get married they couldn’t imagine a better way to do it than at their favourite time of day. As dawn broke over Entrance Point Beach on a hot and steamy morning in the middle of the wet season, the couple shared their vows in front of their closest friends and family with marriage celebrant Kelly Morrow there to officiate the intimate ceremony.
Between the DIY wedding dress that Eliza made with locally designed fabric from the Nagula Jarndu Women’s Art Centre, the handpicked flowers sourced the night before and Andy’s wedding ring that Eliza lovingly made herself from wire, this sunrise beach wedding was definitely one to remember.
The couple met in Karratha when Eliza, working for the ABC, was interviewing Andy on the subject of cattle breeding. She thought he seemed rather good looking in his big hat, while he thought she was wearing a nice pair of jeans. The next time Andy was in town, he took Eliza out for a coffee… then to the rodeo. The rest, as they say, is history.
Eliza is an amazing gardener and loves cooking food harvested from her crops. Andy loves to eat so they are a good match in this regard.
To Eliza and Andy, marriage means a promise that you will always look after each other and that you are on the same team. Enjoying life together while at the same time respecting and appreciating each other’s differences is something they both value and will guarantee a beautiful, happy and harmonious marriage full of love and support… and gardening!
