School weddings hit of the season
PERHAPS it's the arrival of spring, but there seems to be something in the water at Warwick State High School.
With English and Japanese teacher Megan Harding currently enjoying her honeymoon after marrying Mark Lawlor last weekend, a further four teachers will tie the knot this week.
Yesterday, drama teacher Emily Perkins married in Fiji and teachers Caleb Kuhl, Eddie Groom and Kirstie Davey are all set to be married today, too.
It was a mixture of reasons that the small group all chose this weekend.
"It's school holidays (as of this weekend) so we won't have to take off time for our honeymoon," said Mr Groom.
Miss Davey, a learning support and SOSE teacher, said for her, she chose this weekend for its weather.
"It's spring and it's beautiful," she said.
"You'd be silly to get married in the summer - it's too hot. And winter is too cold and autumn is too brown."
Mr Kuhl, who has been with his fiancee, Shayna Little, for about one year, said he was both nervous and excited about the arrival of his big day.
"We've had a look at the weather forecast and it all looks good," he said.
"We're having a garden ceremony so we wanted some nice weather."
Outdoor-loving Mr Groom, who met his fiancee on a bike trip five years ago, said he was looking forward to his honeymoon.
"We're going to Tasmania for a week," he said.
All three teachers took time off in the lead-up to their big day to help finalise plans.
