Wedding is a relaxed affair

"LAID BACK" and not quite traditional was exactly what Rebecca Samios and Robert Montin wanted their wedding to be and it was exactly what they got.

The sun came out for the couple and their 75 closest friends and family at the wedding held at the newly-weds property in Stanthorpe.

The pair were married August 4 at 11 am at the home they will continue to live in into the future.

Rebecca Samios, the only child of the late Bill and Jean Samios was taken to the ceremony by close friend Ed Ray and walked down the aisle by her uncle Gordon Moffet with bridesmaids Cheryl and Gabby Ray supporting her through the day.

Robert Montin's best man Leo Murtas brought the reception together delivering a speech which brought nearly everyone to tears.

The youngest son of the Sonia and the late Avelino Montin also had Mark Wilkinson as a groomsman.

Mrs Montin said the relaxed wedding and reception were just as much about the guests as them.

"It was a bit of a get together for a lot of family who don't see each other much," she said.

"It was just a merging of two families and everyone got along."

The couple's two dogs were a part of the ceremony as flower girls along with Mrs Montin's aunty and Mr Montin's mum who blessed the wedding rings at the ceremony.

The newly-weds are planning a honeymoon trip travelling through Australia next year in a camper van, stopping at Bathurst before going to Mrs Montin's hometown Canberra.

Mrs Montin also complimented photographer Stuart Rayner on capturing their special event perfectly.
