The family business has run successfully for over 23 years, with current owners Ian and Jillanne taking over in 2007. With the new stock, R & R Hire can easily cater for all sized weddings. As owner Ian says, “just tell us the three w’s and we’ll take care of the rest. Tell us what you want, where you want it and when - and we’ll take it from there.” “We have the range and expertise so that customers can have complete peace of mind that we’ll turn up and there’ll be no hassles,” he said. The massive hire range includes everything from chairs, tables, crockery and glass wear, to floor coverings, silk linings and wedding arches. They have pagodas and marquees that cater for all reception sizes as well as the more traditional peg and pole marquees. “These days there is such a variety in how weddings are themed - we cater for all styles from rustic to vintage, and casual to classic,” he said. “People getting married already have so many pressures, so at R&R Hire we make it a point to provide an easy, accessible and highly professional service – completely stress free,” Jillanne adds.

Miss Rebecca ties the knot

By Sonia Clark On Saturday, January 10, Miss Rebecca from the Black Swan School of Dance officially became Mrs Rebecca Willshire when she married her sweetheart of nearly two years, Steven. Meeting Steven through friends at a family function in April 2013, a spark was obviously there as they exchanged numbers, and soon after they arranged to meet up for a first date. Described as the ‘best first date ever!’ Rebecca explained that their evening consisted of a beautiful romantic dinner followed by a lovely walk along the beach where the conversations easily flowed as they talked into the night. Steven proposed to Rebecca on holidays at Venice Beach in L.A. organising a sunset picnic on the beach with her favourite coloured rose petals strewn around and a local musician playing her favourite song. The actual wedding took place at the Little White Wedding Church in Maleny which perfectly suited their elegant modern classic theme. One of the highlights from the day which all went so quickly – was for Rebecca to see the emotion on her future husband‘s face as she walked towards him down the aisle. Rebecca had three bridesmaids, with her best friend of over 13 years as maid of honour. Wearing a bespoke Australian made Elizabeth deVarga wedding gown, Rebecca described her dress as “amazing!” The classically elegant gown had beaded straps and was encrusted with pearls. The dress was made out of soft silk with a satin overlay, needless to say the bride looked absolutely radiant! The reception that followed was held at The Edge Mooloolaba. And yes, the wedding dance was beautifully choreographed by Rebecca as they danced together as husband and wife to their favourite song.

Marking a matrimonial milestone By Lea Parkes At GC&M News we often include classified ads for important milestones and my favourites are the wedding anniversaries, for 40, 50, or 60 years, and on some occasions even longer. What I love most is when the husbands come in and organise it as a surprise for their better half. They don’t always like to give you too much detail, but it is lovely to see just how proud they are of their achievement and these days it certainly is. One Glass House Mountains couple who last month celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary was pineapple farmers Margret and Rick Moffatt. We put a few questions to Margret about her wedding and the secret to wedded bliss. What was their wedding date? 22nd January 1955 Where did they get married? Nambour – Methodist Church with celebrations that followed at her sister Milly’s house. How did they meet? They met at the Beerwah Hotel – Margaret was a waitress in the dining room and Rick was pub regular there after work. What does Margret remember most about her wedding day? Getting prettied up in her older sister’s wedding frock, her brother gave her away, and the best part of all was walking down the aisle seeing a tall handsome man waiting for her. What does she think the secret is to staying married so long? Margret reckons it is simple – it is about true love, always calling one another ‘Love’, kissing each other goodbye in the morning, lunch and before bed, and the big one – not having any secrets. Does Margret have any advice for young couples getting married these days? When you make your vows, they are made to be kept. Her mum always told her kids – you make your bed, you lie in it (or in this case once you have made the commitment you stick with it).

A wedding crisis: reception awash By John Jennings All sorts of interesting things happen at weddings which guarantee there is something to talk about later on - maybe even at a 50th wedding anniversary. All happy couples have favourite stories to tell, beer can ring-pulls exchanged for wedding rings by the best man and so on. Who can ever forget the British film, Four Weddings and a Funeral? For one Hinterland couple, Jessica (Jess) Magarry of Glass House Mountains and Lachlan Downes of Buderim, the challenge was to urgently secure a suitable venue for their reception after driving rain ruined an outdoor setting for 80 guests at the bride’s parent’s property in Glass House Mountains. With the wedding ceremony previously set for 4.00pm at Sir Leslie Wilson Park in Dicky Beach, the Pelican Waters Golf Club came to the rescue offering their undercover terrace to the couple to help prevent anyone from getting ‘wet feet’. At 1.00pm on Friday, January 23, Jessica made the decision to relocate the reception festivities and a series of frantic phone calls began. Within an hour the Beerwah Community Centre was confirmed, security arranged and the decorations, food and drinks transferred in a mass transport effort from both family and friends. As the unusual heavy rain lashed down, a feeling of relief swept over the bridal party, DAY JOIN TO

Losing weight isn't easy. It takes real commitment to make the necessary changes to diet, exercise and lifestyle. And, for most people, it takes a plan. That's why Curves, the fitness franchise designed exclusively for women, has developed Curves Complete, a simple, easy-to-follow weight-loss plan that combines the three keys to taking off weight and keeping it off: meal plans, exercise and motivation. Curves is the only place you can get all three. For many women, managing the simple logistics of sticking to a diet and exercise plan is what defeats them. Meal planning and preparation, shopping, designing an effective and age-appropriate exercise plan, coping with everyday emotional highs and lows – it can be overwhelming. Sometimes it seems easier to stick with the status quo. That's why our new Curves Complete program provides a foolproof plan for dealing with all of these diet challenges – and helps keep women on track for success. The Curves Complete program incorporates all three key components of a successful weight management plan and is designed to help dieters lose up to 10kg of body fat and up to 50cm in just 90 days. Women are seeing real results and sharing their success stories with others at Research shows that up to 95% of dieters regain their lost weight, and then some. It’s not because there’s something wrong with them, it’s because there’s something wrong with conventional weight loss plans. For more information about Curves Complete or if you just want to exercise to get firm and toned call Curves Beerwah on 5494 0455. The first 20 people that bring a copy of this ad in with them when they join our Curves Complete program on a 12 month membership will receive a fabulous Curves Pedometer to help them succeed with their weight loss.
