How did you meet? Through mutual friends at the ripe old age of 17 and we’ve been together ever since!
How did you get engaged? Dave took me to a beautiful dinner overlooking the sunset in Santorini. Afterwards he surprised me and took me back to our gorgeous hotel room and as the door opened the room was alight with candles and he got down and one knee and asked me to marry him!
How long did you spend planning your wedding? 1 year
How would you describe your Big Day? Our day was truly more than we could have ever imagined. It was bursting with love, laughter, tears, and pure joy and happiness and surrounded by our family and best friends. We honestly could not have pictured the day to go any better than it did!
What was the highlight of your Day? I don’t think we could ever pick just one highlight, so here are a few: seeing all our friends and family at Bradleys Head Amphitheatre so genuinely happy to be there was the first highlight of the day! Secondly, being announced as husband and wife (finally after 9 years!). The speeches and then of course the huge party that ensued. Seeing all our guest dancing the night away was probably one of the biggest highlights for us. It really was a huge celebration.
Do you have any suggestions for future Brides and Grooms? I think the best suggestion is to take other people’s suggestions and opinions with a grain of salt!! You will be bombarded with your family and friend’s thoughts and opinions but at the end of the day you need to do what makes you and your partner happy.
The process of planning a wedding is undoubtedly stressful at times but try not to take it too seriously. Above all when you wake up the morning of your wedding day just let it all go and soak up every single moment as it truly is the most incredible day. Enjoy it!
One last thing, if the budget allows for it….get a good photographer AND videographer. It’s all your left with at the end of the day!
