Tayhla & Kellen Powell

In life it's not where you go, it's who you travel with 💞

From family friends not knowing each other to meeting in England is where this love story begins, living in Ireland and travelling Europe Kellen planned the perfect surprise engagement in Sorrento; Italy

with the help of Tayhla's best friend.

Q: Why did you choose The Whitsundays?

A: Tayhla - "It's one of our favourite places in the world and we knew it would always hold

a special place in our hearts."

"The best thing about having a wedding in the Whitsundays is that everyone could spend a long weekend together and all the vendors and photo location were close by"

Tayhla & Kellen chose linen and cream colours as these reminded them of their time in Greece. They wanted a very casual style with a water view. They chose a sit-down buffet dinner to keep it relaxed with only speeches and cake-cutting for the formalities so they had plenty of time for dancing.

Wanting their ceremony and reception outdoors in the same location The Bali Hut & Lawn was the perfect location. With it's stunning views of the Coral Sea by day, and dancing the night away

under the stars by night was, perfection.

Q: What would you recommend to other couples to invest in for their big day?

A: Tayhla - "A wedding planner and a day coordinator! The peace of mind this gave us was a huge help as it made for everything to run smoothly. A photographer you love as you have those photos forever "

Q: Your most memorable moments?

A: Tayhla: "My most memorable moments were walking down the aisle and seeing Kellen's face. Photos together on the beach and watching the sunset. Having our first dance on the grass under the sparklers and sitting in the limo at the end of the night reminiscing as we drove around Airlie".

"Having everything planned to perfection from the day coordinator to all family members knowing their role takes the pressure off you and leaves room to enjoy, soak in and be present in every moment of your big day".
