Stacy and Bevan are ready to re-run their wedding reception.

After the nightmare of last Saturday, Stacy and Bevan could not have imagined their wedding would have such a happy ending.

The Padbury couple have had trouble sleeping since a gang of juveniles caused havoc at their wedding reception, allegedly threatening to kill wedding guests with bricks and glass bottles.

It was after their first dance together as a married couple that the violence broke out, resulting in bloody scenes and eight friends and family members going to hospital.

Thanks to the kindness of strangers, tomorrow Bevan, 26, and Stacy, 25, will get another chance to cut their wedding cake and throw the bouquet at a "re-do" reception at Mosmans Restaurant.

After the couple returned from a relaxing honeymoon in Margaret River yesterday, they reflected on the beginnings of their six-year rom-ance and Bevan's surprise proposal on their front lawn.

Stacy, a dance teacher and training officer at a bank, said they met through a mutual friend eight years ago.

"We had been friends for about two years when we got together and then we were together for about six months before Bevan went to live in Canada, which had always been the plan," she said.

"Then the plan was that after about six months I was going to move there as well but Bevan came home after about five months."

Bevan, who works in construction, said he had known he was coming home after Stacy called to tell him she had landed a great job in Perth. "It was a good time but I missed Stacy," he said.

Stacy said she had just come home from dancing when Bevan greeted her on their front lawn and got down on one knee in May.

"I thought he'd been to Bunnings and and he had the biggest smile on his face," she said. "I went up the driveway and got the mail and turned around and he's down on one knee."

Their second wedding reception has been made possible by donations from businesses that offered to help out after one of the wedding guests was interviewed on radio station 92.9.

Stacy will wear a new dress - her original dress is being dry-cleaned after it was splashed with blood - and they will cut a new cake after the first one was squashed in the violent commotion.

She said last weekend's events were a blur. "We are really overwhelmed by the generosity - we just want to say thank you," Stacy said.
