Lord Howe Island is a destination wedding paradise, and a place where walking and cycling are the major modes of transportation. Whilst cars are available for hire, the island pace lends itself to a more gentle and relaxed method of exploring the island.
A World Heritage listed location, Lord Howe Island consists of turquoise waters and sub tropical landscape, and it feels as if you have stepped into a postcard. The landscape is truly breathtaking and until you visit you cannot truly understand the extraordinary beauty of this location. So when Damien was ready to propose to Kristen, there was no better place than Lord Howe Island.
Where to have the wedding? Whilst both Damien and Kristen explored the more traditional options of a wedding in Sydney, their hearts told them that Lord Howe Island would really be their dream location.
A destination wedding is not without its organisational challenges, and Lord Howe Island would prove to be no different despite being part of New South Wales. Strict baggage allowances, and sometimes unpredictable weather made this a challenging wedding to put together. Kristen and Damien flew a few months prior to the wedding to make arrangements. Through the help of Kathy and her team at Earl’s Anchorage Restaurant, their dream wedding was to become a reality.
Kristen’s father hand carved this beautiful sign for their wedding. It however was a significant challenge and cost to have shipped to the island.
The rings that Damien and Kristen and chosen served as both wedding and engagement rings. The design was so unique, I understand why no wedding ring could possible match Kristen’s engagement ring.
