WED­DED BLISS FOR COU­PLE

Stanthorpe Border Post - - FRONT PAGE -

ST MARY’S Church in War­wick holds spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for both Shelbi (nee Wantling) and Mitchell McMa­hon which is why they chose to cel­e­brate their wed­ding vows at the beau­ti­ful church.

Shelbi, the youngest daugh­ter of Rus­sell and Saman­tha Wantling, and Mitchell, the only son of John and Kylie McMa­hon, tied the knot in front of 110 of their clos­est fam­ily and friends.

The church holds a spe­cial place in the hearts of both fam­i­lies as many mem­bers of both fam­i­lies were mar­ried at St Mary’s.

Shelbi was sup­ported by her maid of hon­our Teigan Wantling and brides­maids Tay­lah Wantling and Saman­tha McMa­hon.

Mitchell stood along­side Ben McMa­hon, his best man, and grooms­men Mark East­well and Ayr­ton Friedrich.

“Mitchell and I are best friends who fell in love early on in our teenage years and found mu­tual ground in our love for cat­tle, fam­ily, close friends and our drive to push each other to achieve our best,” Mrs McMa­hon said.

“We love a good laugh and down­time but also love to work hard and that’s what’s made our re­la­tion­ship so strong.”

The re­cep­tion was held at the Hawker Road Func­tion Cen­tre in War­wick where loved ones gave mem­o­rable speeches.

A high­light of the evening was Shelbi per­form­ing a song she had writ­ten about Mitchell as part of a mu­sic as­sess­ment back in high school.

The cou­ple chose to cruise the Great Bar­rier Reef for their hon­ey­moon be­fore re­turn­ing to start their mar­ried life to­gether.

“Some peo­ple say get­ting mar­ried young is crazy, but we look at each other daily think­ing how lucky we are to spend so much of our lives to­gether.

“We get to watch each other and our re­la­tion­ship grow from the young school kids we were to the suc­cess­ful adults we have be­come.

“Our jour­ney is just start­ing,” Mrs McMa­hon said.
