NEWLYWEDS Amy and Aaron Briggs were in the middle of their wedding rehearsal when news of the five day lockdown broke.
The couple had planned to marry on Saturday and the snap change to coronavirus restrictions meant it would be the third time they would have to reschedule their wedding.
But with a turnaround of about three hours the pair were able to marry on Friday night at Simon's Waterfront with their two-year-old daughter Layla a flowergirl.
"For being put together in three hours it was really good," Mrs Briggs said.
Listen to the latest episode of our weekly podcast The Booletin and Beyond:
She said about 40 people attended but had to leave early to make it home before the midnight restrictions kicked in.
Unfortunately a lot of Mr Briggs' family was unable to attend but the couple planned to have a bigger celebration when restrictions well and truly eased.
"It was just a rush around," she said. "It was pretty epic because I had my hair and my make-up to get done. It was stressful. But I'm happy that it was done."
She thanked Simon's Waterfront, her celebrant Emmalee Bell, photographer Josh Beames, Functions 2 Flowers, Aesthetic Beauty Spot, Birds and Fellas, Clancy's Menswear and Ilma Cakes for their hard work.
