Leiana met Shannon ten years ago through a mutual acquaintance. For twelve months the pair shared a delightful friendship, but then they fell in love. Now, they are not only best friends, they are also husband and wife.
Shannon proposed to Leiana in April 2009, on the day of the couple’s seven-year anniversary. On the pretext of taking their puppy, Daisy, for a walk, Shannon suggested that they go to the beach. It was late afternoon, not long before sunset, when they arrived at a beach they had been visiting for some years on special occasions. Leiana noticed that Shannon seemed a little nervous as they began to walk along the path, but didn’t think anything of it until Shannon suddenly stopped and asked her to marry him.
Because he wanted Leiana to be able to choose her own engagement ring, he presented her with a ring he had found in her jewellery box to mark the occasion. As a fine rain started to fall around them, an ecstatic Leiana said: “Yes”.
Leiana and Shannon chose to marry in 2011 on Easter Sunday. Leiana says that she was very nervous in the lead up to the big day, wondering if everything that she had put so much effort into planning would run smoothly. She was also very nervous about the idea of walking down the aisle.
As it happened, the day turned out beautifully. Leiana looked stunning in a fabulous gown that had the couple’s guests gasping in delight – and Leiana quickly forgot her nerves as she walked down the aisle towards her handsome husband-to-be.
The ceremony was as romantic as it was emotional, and even the weather was well behaved, with just a sprinkling of rain after the outdoor ceremony and family photos.
The couple opted for a silver and white theme, and Leiana added plenty of sparkle with crystals, mirrors and other glamorous elements. For their guests’ bomboniere, the couple chose diamond ring key rings for the ladies and engraved silver bottle openers for the men.
Their table decorations were sensational: five-tiered crystal candle holders on mirrors with crystal tea lights for the bridal table, while the guest tables featured fluted vases with crystal chandeliers, and white roses on mirrors scattered with crystal ‘diamonds’.
The couple agree that the day was absolute perfection, and definitely one of the best of their lives.

One of our favourite images from the very talented Perth wedding photographer, Rebekah Wilson, is this gorgeous shot…
“This photo was taken just as Brett and Sally were about to step out of the church as husband and wife; it’s my favourite of the day. They asked me later if I knew the older couple in the background but none of us did. The love between these two people just shines through – there they were watching a young couple embark on their life together… maybe remembering their own special day and enjoying the moment. This snippet of time captured has become a memory that will last forever.” - Rebekah Wilson,Rebekah Wilson Photographer
