ST THERESE’S School teacher Tr­ish Ham­mond kicked off the school hol­i­days off in style by get­ting hitched to Moura’s Dene Ham­mond on the shores of Ca­nia Dam.

“It’s good to have it all done, plan­ning it all for more than 120 peo­ple had been very full-on,” said Mrs Ham­mond (nee McPhail), with a laugh.

Dene popped the ques­tion when the cou­ple was camp­ing on their Air­port Rd prop­erty out­side of Monto last Au­gust.

“I met Dene when I was teach­ing in Biloela, some friends in­tro­duced us,” Mrs Ham­mond said.

Although Mrs Ham­mond is orig­i­nally from Ca­bool­ture and Dene is from Moura, they are loving life in Monto.

“That’s why we chose Ca­nia Dam to tie the knot,” Mrs Ham­mond said.

After the big day, the stel­lar hol­i­day break kept on rolling, with the cou­ple hon­ey­moon­ing in Her­vey Bay.

“We went on a whale watch­ing cruise and man­aged to see some whales so it was great,” Mrs Ham­mond said.
