IT WAS MEANT TO BE

For newlyweds Chris and Renee
Counsel, their marriage was the peak
of a relationship that spanned 17 years.
After meeting at primary school in
1997, the two stayed friends but never
dated throughout their schooling
It wasn t until eight years after they
finished school that fate stepped in.
"After high school we lost touch,
went our separate ways and lived our
separate lives for a long time," Chris
"[One day] we ran into each other
and started talking again, and found
out that we only lived two streets away
from each other."
The couple started seeing each other
and, realising they shared a lot of the
same values, began to fall in love.
"We truly believe that fate brought
us together, and it was truly meant to
be," Chris said.
Three years on from their first date,
Chris proposed to Renee on a romantic
weekend away for her birthday in
"I kept her busy the whole day,
doing fun things around Sydney to try
and distract her from the fact that I was
going to propose that night for her
birthday dinner -- she had no clue,"
"I was so worried that night that I
would blow my cover early and that
she would notice the ring box in my
jacket pocket before I was ready to
propose but I somehow managed to
keep it hidden."
Following dinner, Chris proposed to
Renee beside the harbour -- and she
The couple shared their wedding
day with 60 family and friends at Gold
The ceremony was held at the
chapel followed by the reception at the
Renee said her dress -- strapless
ivory satin with floral beading and a
flared skirt -- was "the one".
"It was that special dress that just
made you float on air in love with it,"
she said. "When the doors to the
chapel opened and I started to walk
down the aisle and I saw my husband-
to-be s face, I saw his teary eyes, his
huge smile and him repeatedly saying
It gave me such a feeling of joy
that I had a hard time struggling not to
cry," Renee said.
The couple honeymooned for 12
nights on a cruise around the south
rap attack well
An up and coming Canberra all-girl
rap duo have lashed out at
Queanbeyan in a comical attack on
national radio, calling the city a
wannabe Canberra and basically
part of the ACT .
Coda Conduct members Sally
Coleman, 23 and Erica Mallet, 22,
were invited to perform the rap,
which has since spread across social
media, as part of the weather forecast
on Triple J s breakfast show Matt and
Queanbeyan! What a wannabe!
Copied our forecast, got it free. But
it s not a shock, cos you re basically
. . . just part of the ACT, the most
offending line reads.
Quanger?! -- goes on to give the city
heaps over its residents tendency to
don socks and sandals, its opening
hours, and oversupply of takeaway
joints. Even the city s public art
choices did not escape the savage
Canberra! We get a light rail and
we a damn sight better with a
Skywhale. But meanwhile when we
had it, Queanbeyan went and got a
Mallet said they had been worried
about the reception across the border.
Luckily, however, the rap attack,
which also rhymed Red Rooster with
the name of Queanbeyan poet Omar
Musa, was taken in good humour by
the town, whose residents have been
sharing it widely on social media.
Coda Conduct have also made a
recent guest appearance on Triple J
Unearthed as part of their
International Women s Day program
and are getting more and more
airplay on the station.
