Invitees to Melissa Willcock’s surprise 30th birthday celebration on Saturday ended up being the surprised.
On arrival the guests were ushered outside the shed at 4pm thinking they were going to be saying a birthday 'surprise' to Mel Willcock but greeting them was a beautifully decorated garden with bar, caterer, musician, family goat, photo booth bus, fire pits, chairs and celebrant Pam Nelson.
But you had to feel for the wedding party because the weather was freezing cold and the skies were grey,.
So much so that the bride Mel threw her fabulous 'Mrs Tegart leather jacket over her lace dress at the last minute
It was not only cold but windy. Melissa and motor bike rider Rowan Tegart met 10 years ago and have been engaged for the past three years.
Rings were exchanged, the wedding Party certificate was signed, guests applauded and cheered as Mel and Rowan became Mr and Mrs Tegart.
