A wedding is always a beautiful occasion, an intimate special day full of emotion and tenderness as you say your vows to one another.
But weddings can also be fun, reflecting your style as a couple.
Mel and Gary, chose to be somewhat irreverent and outrageous, despite their obvious commitment and celebrated their union in full chicken suits.
See their wedding poem below, what an original statement!
Rooster and Hen
Today we are here and the weather is sultry.
We won’t wear formal, but prefer to wear poultry.
We share a bond of love and fun,
hence wearing a chicken suit in the hot tropical sun.
The heat has not affected our minds,
Today is not about the past,
today is the day that binds,
a union which will last.
We will stand here side by side,
In our suits of fluff and feathers.
We will offer you our pride,
and our commitment in all endeavours.
We will travel together as one ‘till the end,
a journey through life as each other’s friend.
We won’t let the hard times ruin the fun that we seek,
but will fondly recall the day we kissed with our beaks.
So grow old with me, my dearest friend
and share my life – one rooster, one hen!
So, remember, you can be very original and even outrageous if you’d like.
The advantage of having a Civil Celebrant is that you can have a wedding which reflects your personal style as a couple, typifying your uniqueness.

Wedding suppliers and couples need to know the facts…
The Cairns Regional Council is now responsible for issuing permits in regards to wedding ceremonies and receptions held on a beach in the Cairns area.
The beach area is defined by the ‘area from the top of the beach right down to the spring low tide mark’.
This rule applies for all beaches between Bundaberg and the tip of Australia at Cape York.
If you are planning on having your wedding on a Cairns beach you need to apply for a permit.
To apply for a permit click here.
If you are planning on having a wedding on an island or a coral cay, then the ‘Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service’ is the body to contact to obtain a permit.
Visit their website at www.nprsr.gld.gov.au
If you are a business you need to visit www.business.gld.gov.au.
If you intend to have a ‘Low Impact Wedding Ceremony’ on a beach, the good news is you don’t need a permit at all. For more information on what criterias make up a ‘Low Impact Wedding Ceremony’ please visit www.nprsr.gld.gov.au
We are currently compiling a list of questions/comments or concerns of behalf of anyone affected by the above rules and regulations in order to present them to the Cairns Regional Council.
If you would like your questions/comments or concerns put forward to the Cairns Regional Council, please write to us by Friday 25th October 2013 at: email@example.com
