Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

WE WOULD like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the Air­lie Beach com­mu­nity for the help and sup­port we re­ceived for our wed­ding in March.

We were due to be mar­ried on Mon­day 10th March at Daydream Is­land, which was the same time that cy­clone Hadi had planned to visit the area. Due to the weather con­cerns Mar­itime Safety Queens­land shut the port from 6pm the Satur­day prior to our wed­ding, which meant that we had to de­cide if and how we were still go­ing to be mar­ried.

As we had 80 guests trav­el­ling from out­side of the Whit­sun­days, we had to make the de­ci­sion if we were go­ing to post­pone the wed­ding and lose many of our guests or change the venue of our wed­ding so it could still go ahead.

In want­ing to have our guests in at­ten­dance, we re-planned our wed­ding to be held at Air­lie Beach on the Mon­day which gave our guests time to have flights and ac­com­mo­da­tion redi­rected and booked.

We didn’t know what we were go­ing to do for a venue, let alone the other de­tails you gen­er­ally spend 12 months plan­ning for – and within hours, venues and ser­vices came to our res­cue and of­fered their sup­port.

We want to say an enor­mous thanks to ev­ery­one in­volved, we have been speech­less for weeks as it’s so nice be­ing a rel­a­tively new res­i­dent to this area to have ex­pe­ri­enced the amaz­ing com­mu­nity spirit that is well and truly alive here in Air­lie Beach – thank you. Tash and Peter Wheeler AIR­LIE BEACH
