Former Finley resident Amanda Laurie married Adam Burchell in an intimate ceremony in Vanuatu last year.
Amanda and Adam have lived together in Townsville since 2003 where Amanda teaches maths and science and Adam works as a Turbine Operator at Phosphate Hill.
A couple for 13 years, Amanda said they wanted a quiet ceremony.
‘‘Three years ago Adam proposed on our 10th anniversary of meeting each other, which was also my birthday, and we have finally tied the knot,’’ Amanda said.
‘‘After such a long time together we wanted a very quiet and simple wedding, so we were married on the beach at The Havannah resort, Vanuatu on June 27 last year.
‘‘We had a short ceremony on the beach, and then a romantic dinner for two on the jetty, which was covered with wild ginger flowers, croton and philodendron leaves.
‘‘We then spent another ten days in Vanuatu at the Grand Hotel Casino for our honeymoon before heading back home to Townsville.’’
Amanda is the daughter of Tom and June Laurie of ‘Rosewood’, Finley and Adam is the son of Brad and Marion Burchell of Brisbane.
