A SPRINKLE of rain, a rainbow stretched across the horizon, a sky full of stars, a candlelit dinner.
Their wedding had it all.
All, except guests.
Lani De Silva married the love of her life, Robbie Carter, in an intimate ceremony at Kumbogie Woolshed on March 28.
Amid an escalating COVID-19 crisis and tight restrictions, the Tamworth couple decided to wed with the venue owner, photographer, and celebrant present - and their parents dialled in on Zoom.
"The whole time we'd been adamant that we just want to get married, we want to be married, we don't want to wait," the new Mrs Carter told the Leader.
The couple tried to keep the day "as authentic as possible", she said.
They married at their original venue and shared a bottle of champagne and a candlelit dinner, homemade by the owners of the Daruka property.
"We sat where we would've sat for our dinner and we ended up having a picnic under the stars, which we always do when we're out camping ... except we happened to be suited up and dressed up," Robbie Carter said.
The wedding they'd spent ten months planning, the wedding brimming with family and more than 90 guests, couldn't happen, but the couple said they have no regrets.
"We're so excited that we did it. We'd do it again in a heartbeat," Mrs Carter said.
The Carters cancelled their overseas honeymoon, but plan on taking an Aussie road trip once the COVID-19 pandemic is under control.
