Cyclone Yasi

The Bride's Diary team, along with the rest of Australia, are so glad to hear that there have been no reported fatalities or serious injuries as a result of Cyclone Yasi. While the cyclonic conditions are set to remain and the extent of the damage is yet to be properly assessed by authorities, it's comforting to know that so far the destruction doesn't seem to be as bad as first anticipated.

We would once again like to let North Queensland know that our thoughts and prayers remain with you, and we hope you can all return safely to your homes as soon as possible. 

We would also like to extend our congratulations to the families who, despite the chaos and harrowing conditions outside, welcomed their newborn babies into the world overnight! While the timing was far from ideal for the families, the exciting news has provided a much needed lift to Queensland's spirits, and it's wonderful to know that the new mums and their babies are healthy and doing well.

Great to see that Queensland hasn't lost its sense of humour!!!
