Twins on the way after country-style wedding

IT’S been a big year for an Emerald couple who were married in a pleasant country-style wedding and are now expecting twin girls.

Lachlan Bridgeman and Cassandra Vassallo were thrilled at the news they were expecting not only one, but two, bundles of joy, only months after they tied the knot at the Emerald Botanic Gardens.

“We were shocked when we found out but we’re so excited,” the happy bride said.

Mrs Bridgeman said she was surprised at how well the day ran.

“There were no hiccups or anything, everything actually went really well,” she said.

The couple had been looking forward to their big day for about a year and Mrs Bridgeman was excited to finally marry her soulmate.

After both growing up in rural Queensland, the couple opted for a country theme with all bridesmaids and the bride sporting boots on the day.

“I’ve been to a few weddings and wearing heels are so uncomfortable, so we went all boots so we were all comfortable all night,” Mrs Bridgeman said.

They were surrounded by about 80 friends and family and continued the party at the Maraboon Tavern.

The couple was wed at the Emerald Botanic Gardens.
