A Beach House family wedding

The Laklinyeri Beach House is a place for families to make treasured memories, and Mia’s family made some extra special ones during their stay.

Two-year-old Mia has Tay-Sachs disease and is under the care of the Women’s and Children’s Health Network Paediatric Palliative Care Service.

In October 2023, she had the chance to stay at our Beach House – a purpose-built holiday home in Victor Harbor for families of children with complex medical needs or who are in palliative care.

Mia’s parents, Sarah and Jacob, chose to use this opportunity to get married in the local region!

Sarah, Mia and her brothers, Hunter and Aston, got ready together at the Beach House the morning of the wedding.

The family then had a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception with family and friends at a local park and spent the rest of the week at the Beach House, relaxing and enjoying this special time together.

Sarah said, “Staying here has been an overwhelming and beautiful experience that we will cherish forever.”

“It is incredibly humbling to realise just how many people come together to make the Beach House a reality. The space is so light and bright, and well catered for families. We have thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities, and our boys have had so much fun playing and being kids!”

“The equipment and facilities provided have meant Mia is comfortable, as well as the rest of us. We are very thankful as it gave our family some quality time to rest, reset and connect, and make the most of our time with Mia.”
