Michelle is a boot scooting bride

WEDDINGS are now a regular occurrence at the Gympie Muster.

ABC Wide Bay reported yesterday that Michelle Storey spent the first day of her honeymoon with 10,000 other Muster campers this week.

Michelle married her long time partner, Clinton Anderson, at the place they met seven years ago.

"We met at the Muster seven years ago and we only decided five weeks ago that we would get married and this is where we wanted to do it," she said.

"We decided that we didn't need a big wedding and we met here and had friends here and decided we would just do it.

"It's a sad story that led to it though, because we lost a baby about nine weeks ago, but it made us realise what is most important to us and not to worry about anyone else."

The couple had more than 25 friends and family at the ceremony with many Muster-goers also attending.

"We told our family we were going camping for the weekend and if they could make it, come along," Michelle said.

The couple tied the knot outside the Crowbar and like traditional weddings, Michelle was dressed in white - and arrived late.

"Yes there was a white dress, it was beautiful and my friend did beading on it and it only cost me $200," she said.

"It was meant to start at 11, but I took my driver the wrong way and got there at 11.35; I didn't mean to be a late bride."
