ARE you feeling the love this Valentine's Day?

Well, now you can hold on to that feeling for the coming Optus Gympie Music Muster because organisers have announced a custom-built chapel will join this year's line-up.

You can be assured the Gympie Muster is the one place a bride can wear boots under her wedding gown, or have a celebrity drop in as Troy Cassar Daley did for Jason Graham and Kelly Grosse.

The couple who exchanged vows at the Muster in 2009, had met there eight years earlier, and Cassar Daley serenaded the newlyweds ahead of this Main Stage performance.

Country music radio personality and registered celebrant Nick Erby will be on hand to help festival-goers renew their vows and complete child-naming ceremonies at this year's Muster Chapel.

Mr Erby married Jody and Julie Johnston at the Muster in 2010.

"Over the years there has been a few," he said.

"Weddings at the Muster are a great idea. We can make weddings special out there."

Romance is in the air for couples, who will have an anticipated 60,000 patrons to select from as witnesses.

The custom-built chapel will be installed at the Muster for the duration of the festival with interested couples able to register their interest from today (Valentine's Day).

Bookings for the chapel will be on a first-come, first- served basis.

All registered couples will be presented with a gift pack containing CDs as a wedding gift from the Gympie Music Muster and will go into the draw to have one of the 2012 Optus Gympie Music Muster headline artists perform at their ceremony as the bride walks down the aisle, providing an unforgettable moment to cap off their Muster marriage.

"The Optus Gympie Music Muster has had several proposals and weddings happen onsite during the event's 30-year history," Music Muster CEO Vickii Cotter said.

"As such, we thought this makes it easier for anyone thinking of getting married at the Muster and offers a great one-of-a-kind experience for those already married who might be thinking of renewing their vows,"

To ensure all services run smoothly and adhere to legal guidelines, registrations will not be available during the festival period, and all services must be confirmed one month prior to the beginning of the Music Muster.

Event organisers will promote each service in their official program in the hope fellow patrons will attend services.

Couples intending to marry must register with the Muster's office by July 1 to ensure legal proceedings and documentation are done correctly.

Those renewing their vows country-style or wanting to book a child-naming ceremony have until July 21 to register.

To register or for information visit muster.com.au or call the Muster office 5482 2099.

The 2012 Optus Gympie Music Muster will take place at the Amamoor Ck State Forest August 23-26.
