We are getting married

You are invited to the wedding of Matthew Cooper and Kaylene Butler. The date of the wedding is the 14 May 2022 and we would like you to be a part of it.

Our Story

We met through the power of technology and quickly bonded over our shared love of popular culture
(video games and movies ). By the date of the wedding we will have been together for over six years. During that time, we have ventured to distant lands in search of Cherry Blossoms (Japan), snow on Cradle Mountain (Tasmania) and the mysterious Hobbit (New Zealand). Unfortunately Hobbiton is puzzlingly bereft of Hobbits. On two occasions we journeyed to the mysterious halls of Melbourne Convention Centre in search of even more video games (PAX Melbourne). Several years ago we also became proud cat-parents to one Odin ‘the cat’ Cooper . After many adventures and video games played, while shopping for earrings on Kay’s birthday, and after an extensive conversation over food court quarter-pounder burgers we decided that it was time begin a new adventure together - marriage!
