How did you two love birds meet?
We have been friends for eight + years, I was living in Tasmania and Ben here in South Australia. We reconnected via Facebook a few of years ago. Only 8 months into our relationship, I knew he was the one – work offered me a transfer to SA, so I made the move and the rest they say is history…
Who popped the question and how did it happen? Was it a surprise? Spill…
It wasn’t a surprise at all… Ben is terrible at keeping secrets. We actually had a false start… Ben was placing little notes around the house, and I found a bottle of Moët in the fridge and knew something was going on.
So… he regathered his thoughts and proposed a week later at Windy Point lookout. He packed a little picnic with all my favourite things – cheese, wine and of course my fur baby, Lincoln. Knowing how important family is to me – Ben incorporated our parents love stories in to the proposal. We were overlooking the Racecourse – which is where my parents met, and Ben’s parents had their first date at the Windy Point restaurant. They both have beautiful marriages filled with love and laughter, everything we hope for in ours.
How long was your engagement & how long did you have to plan your wedding and did you plan the wedding yourself?
We got engaged nine months before our wedding day and I basically started planning the second we got home! I’m an extremely organised person (and a control freak) so planned the whole thing – with a bit of input from Ben.
Were you nervous walking down the aisle?
OH MY GOSH – YES. I’m glad I had a parent on each arm to hold me up. Once I could see Ben, all the nerves went away and tears of joy arrived. Ruined my makeup 60 seconds in to the wedding!!
What was your favourite moment(s) from your beautiful wedding day?
The speeches – we laughed, we cried and were reminded of how blessed we are by our friends and family.
How would you describe your overall wedding day experience?
It truly was the best day of our lives – We didn’t want it to end, so much so we left an hour later than planned. I’m laughing in pretty much every photo, because I didn’t stop the entire day.
What advice would you offer to other couples planning a wedding?
Don’t sweat the small stuff – you really don’t notice it on the day!!!! Choose vendors that know their sh*t, and that you can laugh with too. They make it an easy process!
Where did you escape to for your honeymoon? Would you recommend it to other couples?
Italy & Qatar! We spent three weeks across Rome, Florence, Venice & Doha. We fell in love with Florence – ohhh the shopping!!
