THERE is nothing like the Muster to ignite passion and romance in its patrons and this year the event is hoping Muster lovers confirm their love for each other in a purpose-built chapel.

Organisers of the 2012 Optus Gympie Music Muster will set up a chapel on site for the event allowing patrons to marry, renew vows or have a child naming day during the festival and witnesses shouldn't be a problem with an anticipated 60,000 patrons to select from.

Couples interested in sharing the love over the music festivities are required to register their interest prior to the event.

Muster lovers can now register online at www.muster.com.au or by calling the Muster office 07 5482 2099.

Bookings for the chapel will be on a first- come, first-serve basis with several nuptials and renewals expected to take place between August 23 and 26.

Couples intending to marry must register with the Muster's office by July 1 to ensure legal proceedings and documentation is adhered to.

Those renewing their vows country style or wanting to book a child- naming ceremony have until July 21 to register.

All registered couples will be presented with a Gift Pack containing CD's as a wedding gift from the Gympie Music Muster and registered couples will go into the draw to have one of the 2012 Optus Gympie Music Muster headline artists perform at their ceremony as the bride walks down the aisle providing an unforgettable moment to cap off their Muster marriage.

The winning couple will be announced on Wednesday, August 22.

Couples will say their "I do's" in front of not only their guests but also in front of country music radio personality and registered celebrant Nick Erby.

While the brides may opt out of wearing white due to the inability to keep their wedding gown clean, it's expected cowboy boots, akubras and drizeabones will become standard wedding garb for happy couples at the Gympie Music Muster.

Bride and grooms-to-be also don't need to worry about catering, instead their guests can simply explore the delights on offer at the Muster.
