As the sun retreated behind mount Vaea, it provided a perfect silhouette glow over a grand celebration of love yesterday.
From the beautiful decorations, to the arrival of the bride; Jaydin O’Grady and Kane Meredith tied the knot in class after seven years of love.
The wedding, held at the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum, saw guests enjoy a wonderful evening.
Arriving in a helicopter, Jaydin walked right into the hook of her father, Michael O’Grady’s protective arms, where he guided her down the aisle to hand over the duty of protection to Kane.
After a brief ceremony led by Father Mosese Kolio, the couple said their “I do’s” marking the beginning of their new journey as husband and wife.
“We met through mutual friends and then we became friends ourselves for a little while until we decided that there was something there,” said Mrs. Meredith.
“Kane always had a thing for me, and I guess there was always something there between us.
“We started dating in 2009, after two years of being friends and then after that we did some long distance for a year.
“Kane moved over to see me in Melbourne where I was studying and then we started living together.
“After about three years we had our beautiful son Kaleb; we then lived together for another year before moving back home where we decided that it’s finally time to get married.
“So in a nutshell, after seven years together we finally tied the knot.” As for the groom, he didn’t have much to say.
“When I first saw her I thought to myself ‘Amazing, just exquisite, she is such an exquisite person’ and when I got to know her my thoughts altered to a ‘beautifully caring person’,” he said.
“When I asked her out it wasn’t all elaborate; I asked her to be my girlfriend on the seawall and now seven years ago I’m marrying this amazingly exquisite, breathtaking person.”
Guests enjoyed the rest of the night with a beautiful live band, drinks overflowing and food galore.
Congratulations Kane and Jaydin Meredith!
