DESTINATION WEDDING: A large group of Sydney and Melbourne residents have reluctantly travelled north to Byron Bay for their friend’s wedding.
“To be brutally honest, none of us wanted to come,” one guest told DBT. “And the bride is acting like she’s actually doing us a favour.”
Local bridezilla Amber Wrigley and her new husband are holding their wedding this afternoon at her holiday house in the Byron bay hinterland, 800 kilometres from Sydney.
Guests say they are angry about the cost of flights, car hire and accomodation, at a time when most people have already been to Byron within the last few months.
“What a hassle,” said another guest. “I’m so over this wedding and the reception hasn’t even begun.”
“And, the bride and groom will probably end up getting divorced in a few years anyway.”
It’s understood Amber Wrigley was keen to get married in Byron so she could have a ‘destination wedding,’ while at the same time testing how loyal her friends are.
“I knew you’d all love it here,” she said in her wedding speech. “Thanks for making the effort to come. I’m sure it was worth it.”
More to come.
