Twins tie knot at double wedding
WEDDING guests might have thought they were seeing double when twins Danny and Darryl Knight, 28, married their wives in a dual ceremony.
The wedding was held at the Kholo Botanical Gardens on Saturday, when 80 guests, including family and shared friends celebrated not one, but two marriages.
Danny Knight and his bride Lesley read their vows as they stood alongside Danny's brother Darryl and his bride Samara on their special day.
"We all got up there at the same time, Darryl and Samara said their vows first and then we followed.
"It was a very big day, the family loved it," Danny said.
As well as sharing the ceremony, the couples shared a wedding cake for the reception, and arrived together in the twins' grandfather's HK Holden Monaro.
The twins' aunt, Aileen Knight, said the wedding was "absolutely beautiful".
"It was so special watching the two boys walk down the aisle, one after the other, with their wives.
"They're also the youngest of the grandchildren in our family, so that made it even lovelier.
"There were a lot of tears, especially from their mother and I," she said.
She said there were some funny moments in the dual ceremony, with the celebrant having to change the standard speech.
"The celebrant had to remember to say everything in plural, and it was a bit of a struggle to fit that into the usual ceremony."
Danny Knight said that it "just made sense" to get married on the same day as his brother.
"We were having a few drinks one afternoon, talking about our weddings, when we came up with the idea.
"We were set to get married around the same time anyway, so we thought 'why not?'," Danny said.
Apparently, the wives were happy to share their big day too.
"The girls are close too, they didn't mind at all. We've been on plenty of double dates over the years and we all get along really well," Danny said.
The brides had separate bridal parties, and both women had daughters who were involved in the ceremony.
"I'd never heard of a dual wedding being held before, but it couldn't have been done better," Mrs Knight said.
