The McFarlanes: Grant, Kathy, Hayley and Rachel
Rainbow Beach local, Hayley, recently wed her high-school sweetheart on Monday April 24. Proud parents, Grant and Kathy McFarlane, watched the couple take their vows, as did the groom’s happy parents, Trevor and Cheryll Mahaffey from Goomboorian.
It was a beautiful autumn day for the couple, who chose to have a rustic wedding in the picturesque Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
Both ceremony and reception venues boasted stunning views, historic charm and a relaxed country atmosphere, which created the perfect day for the pair who celebrated with their families and closest friends.
The bridal party consisted of all family members: Edward Maragna, Belinda Maragna, Best Man – Peter Mahaffey, Flowergirl – Pippa Mahaffey, Hayley and Brendan Mahaffey, Flowergirl – Ava Mahaffey, Maid of Honour – Rachel McFarlane, Nathan Dick, Jade Mahaffey
Of course, there were lots of personal touches, with Hayley and her dad designing and creating most of the decorations, as well as Hayley screen-printing all the stationary.
Yandina Station never looked prettier – with chandeliers of old-fashioned flowers and fairy lights.
Brendan and Hayley (now Mahaffey) have returned from their honeymoon in Tasmania and are back at work on the family farm and at the Gympie Regional Gallery.
