Your Special Event

Raylene & Taaj : A love story

Wow doesn’t time fly!! Almost thirteen years ago we met and fell in love.

You with your V8’s and tractors and me with my love of bacardi rum and being the last to leave the party! Who would have known that late nights and V8’s would be replaced with four kids, early evenings and family appropriate people movers!

Friends and family you know our story. From one young man and one slightly older young woman, we’ve spent the last thirteen years creating our beautiful but incredibly boisterous family and it’s time for our next chapter.

With our family in tow we’ve decided to go one step further and make our relationship more than just Facebook official, we are getting married!

We would love for you all to share this special moment with us all by joining us for our destination wedding in beautiful Fiji.
