Rest assured… there is not a dry eye left in the office today. 

Today was meant to be the happiest of young Stephanie Scott’s life, getting married to her childhood sweetheart. 

But cruelly things took a turn for the worse this week and she will not see that day. 

And while her burned body was discovered last night, her family are trying to come to terms with her sudden passing on what should be her wedding day. 

The family and friends are preparing to honour Ms Scott with a picnic today but her sister has taken to the internet to share a glimpse into her heartbreak. 

Kim Scott has made her wedding speech public today and, honestly, if you can get to the end without a tear then you must have a heart of steel. 

Read the full speech below.

On this Your Special Day…

My little sister, 
Stephanie Clare Scott,
Is now a wedded wife, 
Believe it or not.

Aaron Leeson Woolley, 
The luckiest man, 
Is a welcomed honorary member 
To the prestigious Scott clan.

They met in Canowindra, 
Young and sweet. 
Flirting at IGA,
Between the creamy pasta salad and cold meat.

They shared car journeys, 
Along with dad, Stuie and me. 
There were sparks a-flying,
Any blind dick could see.

Twilight soccer
Was where it was at. 
Cowra played host, 
The competition was phat.

Stephanie and Aaron, 
Made a good team. 
A match made in heaven, 
So it would seem.

The car journeys home, 
Saw dad raise his voice.
Critiquing and replaying the game,
Listening, the only choice.

And so Aaron listened, 
And listened some more. 
Realising then and there, 
He had to be sure.

Liking a teachers daughter, 
Was no small thing. 
But playing soccer with her dad, 
You’ve got to be kidding?

I admired his bravery, 
His persistence and class. 
Challenging dad and occasionally,
Making him seem like an…awesome father.

And so the relationship began, 
There were smiles from ear to ear. 
Days turned to months, 
And months turned to a year.

Stephanie was in Wagga, 
And Aaron back home. 
The dreaded long distance, 
Trusting the unknown.

They travelled back and forth, 
And somehow made it work.
Although not always perfect, 
They knew what love was worth.

Long summers together,
Although they went too fast.
It was becoming clear to all, 
This relationship would last.

Stephanie graduated,
And settled out west. 
Aaron followed suit, 
He knew what felt best.

They made a home, 
Comfy and content.
Now settled and happy, 
Off to work they went.

Stephanie a teacher, 
Aaron cutting meat. 
Their life in Leeton,
Was beginning to feel complete.

Away to Thailand, 
Adventures far and wide. 
Aaron had a plan, 
He was after a bride.

Time for dinner, 
And Aaron played it cool. 
Making several trips to the bathroom,
Dropping the kids off at the pool…

Or was he? That tricker!
That sneaky little thing! 
He got down on one knee, 
And pulled out a ring.

Stephanie couldn’t believe it, 
Such a shock, a surprise! 
The happiest moment, 
Looking into his eyes.

Of course she said yes, 
As we’re all here today. 
Celebrating this couple, 
On their beautiful wedding day.

They make each other smile, 
They can fill a room with love. 
Joking and laughing, 
They fit each other like a glove.

We couldn’t be happier, 
It’s a dream come true. 
To watch your sister find happiness, 
And to say ‘I do’.

You’re beautiful people, 
When you stand alone.
Together you’re strong, 
You set the tone.

I wish you all the happiness, 
For the many years to come. 
May you fill each other with joy,
And never be glum.

I’m sure you’d all agree, 
That their bond is unique. 
Special and happy,
Their love is what we seek.

Congratulations to you both, 
Now friends and family, 
Please join me in a toast, 
To Aaron and Stephanie.
