THE COU­PLE: Kirby My­ers and Ben Strang THE LOVE STORY: Kirby and Ben or­bited each other’s friend­ship cir­cles for years, but it was at a birth­day party where they fi­nally struck up a con­ver­sa­tion. “Our friend in­vited us all up­stairs,” Ben says. “She put on a David At­ten­bor­ough doc­u­men­tary which straight away sparked us (Kirby and I) talk­ing to each other over our shared love of him. We have now worked out there must have been at least five oc­ca­sions over about 10 years that we could have met given our shared friends.” Af­ter five years of dat­ing, civil en­gi­neer Ben pro­posed to Cirque du Soleil per­former Kirby in a quiet spot near Ni­a­gara Falls. THE BIG DAY: The cou­ple mar­ried on Septem­ber 22 in the rooftop gar­den at QT Ho­tel, Surfers Par­adise. It was a small cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion cater­ing to 30 fam­ily and friends. Kirby says the day was per­fect. “Our favourite mo­ment was sur­pris­ing our par­ents with a spe­cial thank you and de­stroy­ing all hope of them be­ing tear free at the cer­e­mony,” Kirby says. “The day went per­fectly, even with the best man strug­gling to get the rings out of a tight jacket pocket.” CEL­E­BRANT: Sarah May Alexan­der Civil Mar­riage Cel­e­brant THE DRESS: Kirby wore a Match Made Bridal skirt and back­less top with a bow. Her “some­thing blue” was a pair of sparkly Kate Spade sneak­ers. THE SOUND­TRACK: Sim­ply the Best by Noah Reid, You’re My Best Friend by Queen and I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Bea­tles.
