A UNION OF LOVE AND SURNAMES
COUPLE FINDS FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE ON THE HIGH SEAS
They only lived kilometres apart on the Sunshine Coast at Buderim and Currimundi while growing up. But it took a family vacation on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean in 2012 for Gemma Layfield to meet dancer Ashlee Small.
After staying in touch as friends for a year, they both settled back into life in Australia where their relationship blossomed.
And on March 30, the two tied the knot and officially became the Smallfields at Beerwah Hideaway Function Room in front of 60 family and friends.
To ensure they could spend as much time with their guests, Gemma and Ashlee got ready together in Maleny with their bridal party, and headed to Beerwah forest for photos before the ceremony, officiated by celebrant Andrew Sinclair.
The couple honeymooned in Japan and live at Mango Hill.
CONGRATULATIONS: Ashlee Small has married Gemma Layfield to become the Smallfields.
