Day 12 in the world of Sam and Dani: Arrived in Brisbane and were met by Becca =) Back at her house Dani spent the day in bed whilst Sam went with Becca to get her hair coloured and practice her wedding hair. The next day we headed up the Gold Coast to Surfers Paradise where we had a mini hens night for Becca. After having tea and beautifying ourselves we went out for a few drinkies, ended up bumping into some marines from America who spent the whole night buying us drinks, yay! For anyone who knows Dani, you will know she doesnt do shots very well, but on this night she was having shots all night!!! Becky you would be proud!! Sam was very impressed as she converted her to a southern comfort drinker =)
Next day Dani was dying but had to be dragged round a mall cos UK Customs decided to hold Sam's bridesmaid dress (no idea why) which meant we had to find another. Luckily we found this very, very clever lady who managed to make an identical dress in a day, she was a genius!! However, this is supporting our dislike of malls as we seem to be spending too much time in them.
On the Friday we headed upto the Sunshine Coast to Kawana Island ready for the wedding. Getting there was pretty interesting considering the sat nav didnt even know where we were!! All the roads here are new and are not recognised so when you take a wrong turning you're done for as the roads take forever to finish!! When we finally arrived we met up with Becca and the bridal party and got pampered at a nail salon (yes we are actually travelling!). That night we all went out for tea with family and friends before jacuzzi'n it up in the penthouse suite =)
Saturday was AMAZING!! The bride looked stunning and the venue was perfect. The morning was spent drinking champagne and the bridal party having their hair and make-up done which looked beautiful. The ceremony was held on the beach and the bride and groom stood in rose petals saying their vows. Becca asked Sam to be a witness so she had a special part in the ceremony =) After the initial photo's the bridal party and grooms men were whisked away to another beach where they had more shots and the bride and groom had photos in the sunset. Dani thought the meal was delicious so ate Sam's as well, causing her to feel ace the next day whilst it was Sam's turn to die on her ass. Had a lovely day and night, although a messy one! The photos say it all!!
Spent the next few days chilling, heading into the city tomorrow to explore!
