Sparks fly at Yamba wedding with fireworks display

A SPECTACULAR fireworks display for two has been shared by a whole community.

All eyes were on the horizon in Yamba on Sunday night as residents came out onto their decks and front lawns to watch the gulf light up in colour.

What people were looking at was actually a wedding gift for Jen and Dave Johnston, who tied the knot at Angourie's Green Point on Sunday.

Mr Johnston said the display, put together by his uncle who owns Sydney-based fireworks company All Occasions Pyrotechnics, was loved by everyone, especially his young son Braxton who came up from South Australia.

"We didn't expect it to be that big; they certainly put on a show," he said.

The couple lives in Brisbane but often escape to Yamba for holidays, making it the perfect place for them to get hitched.

"Dave's family owns a holiday house down here and we enjoy our weekends away," Mrs Johnston said. "It's just such a beautiful place to get married."

Mrs Johnston said it was easily the best day, and night, of her life.

"A lot of things have happened in the past 12 months and it hasn't been an easy planning process - we had three date changes - but to see it all come together I was pretty chuffed. It was absolutely amazing." The loved-up couple are expected to return to Brisbane today to prepare for a five week honeymoon in Europe.
