Scotty and Sam got married 20 years ago this month!

On November 9 1991 I said “I do” in a small pub called Lake
Eacham Hotel, Yungaburra, with a small group of special friends as we travelled
in our caravans and tents through far north Queensland.

It was so beautiful and like Scotty said “I have always
wanted this to be about just us”. We had the huge wedding planned and had even
booked in at the Botanical Gardens in Sydney, even the invitations had gone
out! But our situation changed (huge story and too long to write!) so we made
this alternative choice. I have never regretted this decision. We enlisted the
help of a local Wedding Celebrant!

I had a beautiful gown all ready at Abbey Bridal but had to
cancel and I was even worried that our wedding rings would not make it time as
they were a gift from a jeweller in England and needed to be redirected to
Cairns post office! We really sweated on them as we visited the post office
daily for a week. I bought a $100 bridesmaid dress and the matching tulle and
was staying at The Cool Waters Caravan Park in a tent. I hand sewed fishing
line into the “train” and made a shoal and even shoe decorations all by
hand with my travelling girlfriends all helping! Talk about budgeting! I wish I
was that good now. The flowers were $100, the meal for 11 of us was like $15 a
head! And we put $200 across the bar. Scotty did not have one entertainer
friend amongst the crowd so an old pianola in the corner served as our music
for the Bridal Waltz. We stayed upstairs in the 100 year old pub and of course
the bed was short sheeted and covered in toilet paper! Thanks Scotty for
marrying me 20 years ago today! It has been an amazing ride so far!
