ALYSSIA and Curtis Fisher had their hearts set on White­haven Beach as the per­fect des­ti­na­tion to tie the knot.

Not even Cy­clone Deb­bie stood in the way of their re­solve with the lo­ca­tion look­ing as beau­ti­ful as ever on April 10, a week and a half af­ter Deb­bie struck.

White­haven’s defining fea­tures were am­pli­fied with clear blue skies, wa­ter and trade­mark white sand.

Not­ing the unique na­ture of the is­land, the UK cou­ple de­cided they wanted to get hitched at White­haven Beach be­fore mov­ing back home to Eng­land.

Whit­sun­day wed­ding plan­ner Jes­sica Lawrence said the Fish­ers got the wed­ding ex­pe­ri­ence of their dreams.

“They ab­so­lutely loved it, it was won­der­ful for them,” Ms Lawrence said.

“They were there a cou­ple of days prior on a day trip so they knew there was tree dam­age (but) they were re­ally happy with the beach and how it looked, with wa­ter still blue and sand still white, it’s still pic­ture per­fect.

“They re­ally wanted to do their mar­riage here be­cause they don’t have any­thing like that in the UK.”

The Fish­ers were not the only cou­ple to tie the knot dur­ing the Cy­clone Deb­bie af­ter­math, with two other wed­dings that week­end and an­other three ex­pected for this week­end.
