MARK Joseph Wilkinson and Linley Paige Maidment grew up in a small town together, but later met when they were just 13.

The couple had a beautiful tropical wedding and the weather was more than perfect.

The Australian couple had a fun filled wedding at the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort with family and close friends attending the special day.

Linley said she couldn’t quite remember how she felt when she first met Mark because she was just 13, but Mark recalls trying to play it cool when he first laid eyes on Linley.

The couple courted for four amazing years and both were ready to settle down and start their happy journey together. Mark had proposed to Linley in Hawaii and the couple chose Fiji as their wedding destination.

“We love it here, it’s paradise and the people and places are beautiful,” the couple said.

Mark loves everything about Linley and says marriage to him meant getting married to his beautiful girlfriend and finalising their love and commitment.

Linley says Mark is just the perfect man for her and marriage to her represented their strong love and commitment together.

Linley looked stunning in her wedding dress and she loved how it had a beautiful and tropical touch to it.

The bride had her sister and bestfriend Matilda by her side as her maid of honour while Mark had his best friend Benjamin as his best man.

Linley had her sisters as her bridesmaid while Mark had his brothers as his groom’s men.

The bridesmaids wore elegant purple flowy dresses to compliment Linley’s beautiful wedding dress.

The couple not only had a wonderful tropical wedding they also experienced a Fijian Village visit after tying the knot, experiencing the true Fijian lifestyle.

The couple spent their honeymoon in Singapore, Malaysia and Bali.
