25 couples tie the knot in epic big-batch wedding ceremony – so would you do it? 

Twenty five love-struck couples have said I do in a Vegas-style wedding after deciding they couldn’t wait any longer to tie the knot.

Kayleigh Forward was amongst the blushing brides on the big day and told FEMAIL  she couldn’t have gotten married any other way.

The wedding ceremony was hosted by Brisbane-based radio personality and registered celebrant Abby Coleman, who describes herself as a ‘sucker for love’.

She was joined by her co-hosts Maty Acton, who turned up in a sequin jacket, and Stave Davidson who dressed like Elvis for the ceremonies.

Abby wore a stunning pink gown as she officiated each of the couples’ vows on Wednesday – before all 25 couples sat down to share their first meal as husbands and wives.

The love-loving radio host suggested she put on a big-batch wedding ceremony live on air and ‘the phones went nuts’ with couples hoping to be included on the day.

Kayeleigh said she called her partner Brady Pengally-Martin as soon as she heard the plan for a radio-hosted wedding – and he quickly agreed it would make for a memorable day.

She called the station and her details were put on the long list of other hopeful brides.

‘I was so excited they chose me to be part of the day,’ she said.

The brides looked stunning, and wore everything from summer dresser to coloured gowns and traditional wedding dresses on the day

Kayleigh and her husband Brady had been engaged for three years before they were married on Wednesday.

‘My husband wanted the big wedding whereas I never thought I would get married,’ she said.

‘We were going to go to New Zealand and elope but Covid ruined that, and I didn’t want to waste any more money,’ she added.

Kayleigh was given two months notice for the big day, enough time for her to find a $70 dress and for Brady to buy a good suit.

Each couple were greeted by Abby and her co hosts Stave and Matty on the day - Kayleigh listens to the hosts every morning and said it was a 'dream come true

‘I was so anxious and stressed leading up to it,’ she said.

‘But on the day everything felt so right. I couldn’t wipe the smile off face, and I was actually squealing with excitement. It was like a volcano eruption of happiness,’ she said.

It was perfect for Brady too. The groom ‘melted’ as he watched Kayleigh step through the doorway and walk down the aisle.

‘He had this murky smile on his face, he just lit up watching me,’ Kayleigh said.

The couples were given 15 minutes to walk down the aisle, exchange their vows to make everything official, share a kiss and sign their paperwork.

Kayleigh is a superfan of the network and says seeing Matty, Abby and Stave on her wedding day was ‘a dream come true’.

The radio station, B105, covered each couple’s hair, makeup, flowers, music, food, drinks, photographer and of course the celebrant for the day.

Each bride and groom took home a present on the day, with Kayleigh and Brady gifted a Smeg blender.

The couple spent about $2000 in total including outfits, some much-needed visits to the hairdresser and for a photographer who helped them capture pictures with family after the ceremony. 

Kayleigh won a JetStar voucher on the radio previously so the couple plan to use the voucher to take trips around Australia for their honeymoon.
