ON A beautiful winter day friends and family of Tyler Dingle and Kaoma McKeown gathered to celebrate the love of a young family.

The couple, who met six years ago while working at McDonald's together as teenagers, were joined by 80 guests who had travelled from as far as Sydney, Brisbane and Tamworth.

But perhaps the most treasured guests were the smallest Dingles, with a daughter arriving only nine weeks before the big day.

Tyler and Kaoma elected to exchange vows in the picturesque Mecure Capricorn resort in Yeppoon on July 5, the date was exactly six years after their courtship began.

The now Mrs Dingle said marrying the man of her dreams would always be the most treasured memory of the day.

"I'm falling more and more in love with my new hubby every time I see him," she said.

"Everything was perfect, there were sunny blue skies and lots of laughter, fun, love and lots of tipsy relatives."

Small touches of tradition and fun allowed Mr and Mrs Dingle to showcase both their heritage and personalities to family and friends.

For the beautiful photoshoot by Allsop Photography, the groomsmen donned superhero buckles.

Three generations of honoured wedding promises, symbolised by their rings, were carried down the aisle by the young ringbearer.

The newlyweds wished to express their gratitude to everyone who helped create their fairytale beginning.

The couple thanked their Master of Ceremonies Louise Williams, who was also a great wedding day manager, and their mums who helped make it all happen.
