Camels add character to wedding
AS if the perfect weather wasn't enough, Cyra Croft and Ben de Silva also took the trouble to provide the perfect spectacle for their wedding guests - a camel caravan along Boambee Beach.
"When we were planning the wedding, Ben's mum wanted us to do something different - someone suggested the camels and we really liked the idea. We rode along the beach to the fishing club and got a great reception," the bride said.
She also admitted getting a terrible fright when her mount stood up and she realised how high off the ground she was.
"It was a really fun thing to do - something we will never forget."
The bridal party, which comes from Grafton and Bundaberg, then hosted 140 guests for a relaxed family reception.
The camels are owned by Allan Atkinson.
