Tom & Jane. The Patersons (junior)!
Your classic high school sweethearts who got together at a mates house party. Jane being the confident and self assured young lady she is apparently made the first move. Tom regained the upper hand with a romantic (and very much out of the blue surprise) proposal after work one Friday evening.
They made the pilgrimage back to the part of the world where it all began to make things official. Holding the wedding in the front yard of Tom’s family farm/home was one of his few requests for their big day. What a setting it was. The Patersons (senior) property is set amongst the cane fields of Farleigh a short drive out of Mackay. Tom & Jane poured their hearts and a hell of a lot of effort into making their big day one to remember. Endless amounts of planning the day and more DIY than a sane person would ever willingly take on made sure their country wedding will hold a warm place in the hearts of all in attendance.
