Wedded Bliss Goes Off With Out A Hitch !

What a happy ending for a Port Macquarie couple, Christine Drennan and her husband to be Matthew Moore, they are currently sailing on P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Jewel and had planned a beautiful beach wedding at Mooloolaba which is on the Sunshine Coast Wednesday this week.

Unfortunately their wedding celebrant Gail Evans was at the beach in Moolooaba waiting for them, but due to strong winds and a rough swell this prevented the tender boats from taking passengers ashore including the bride and groom. The wedding was off, or so it thought!

But wait a minute, Pacific Jewel Hotel Director Melissa Yates who Australian Cruising News has got to know over many cruises on Pacific Jewel had other ideas.

Matthew Moore and Christine Drennan getting married on Pacific Jewel

She had arranged for a special commitment service to be held on-board Pacific Jewel and while Captain Otty Ghoshroy couldn’t legally marry the couple, the rest of the day went ahead as planned with champagne, a wedding cake and a reception dinner in the ship’s main dining room. The bride even wore her beautiful wedding dress.

To ensure the couple still officially became man and wife, P&O arranged for Ms Evans to fly to Gladstone to conduct the wedding yesterday. The ceremony was held in The Dome at the front of the ship, with stunning views of the Queensland coast.

Wedding on Pacific Jewel

Matthew Moore and Christine Drennan were officially married on Pacific Jewel in Gladstone on Thursday this week. .

Cupid's arrow might have hit a day later than planned but love and romance got there in the end.

Well done to P&O Cruises Australia and Melissa Yates and to all those involved.

We also wish the happy couple [husband and wife] a lifetime time of happiness together.
