GUESTS at Bundaberg couple Eloise and Geoffrey Smith's wedding at the Moncrieff Theatre on Saturday could be forgiven for thinking they had walked on to the set of a Broadway musical.

And that's exactly what keen dancer and singer Eloise Smith (nee McLellan) was aiming for.

A mock movie poster at the front of the theatre advertised the couple's holy matrimony to the public and invited guests were mailed theatre tickets rather than traditional invitations.

Life models in tutus and pointe shoes struck ballerina poses at the top of the auditorium stairs and the wedding ceremony included live performances and lighting and sound effects.

Mrs Smith said the unorthodox wedding ceremony represented her passion for song and dance and the couple's desire to provide their wedding guests with a unique experience.

"I think the ceremony suited us down to a tee," she said.

"It showed that we are a bit different and that we like to think outside the box."

The wedding ceremony concluded with Mrs Smith performing a rendition of Lonestar's Amazed, accompanied by a tap dance performance by her brother, Robert McLellan.

The wedding was a childhood dream realised for Mrs Smith, who has grown up through dance and performance through her aunt Dianne's well-known school in Bundaberg.

And best of all, after a big organisational effort, there were no performance jitters or glitches on the day.

"It was the wedding I always imagined - it was everything we hoped it would be and more," she said.

"It was just a fantastic day all round."
