Tell me how you two met?
SHARNI: Ben and I have been friends for seven years, I was living in Tasmania and Ben here in South Australia. We’d originally met through an interstate basketball/netball carnival.
We reconnected via Facebook a couple of years ago, and as they say… the rest is history.
What hooked you in what was the moment you decided they were the one?
BEN: Sharni was offered a role with her employer to relocate to SA. That was the moment I realised I wanted nothing but that.
Who proposed? Tell me the story, was it a huge surprise? Tell me everything 🙂
SHARNI: 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 up… So he regathered his thoughts and proposed a week later at Windy Point lookout. He packed a little picnic, with cheese, my favourite wine and of course – my fur baby, Lincoln.
Who chose the ring? Was that a surprise? Was the size right – haha?
SHARNI: The ring is very special to me. It was my Mum’s engagement ring to my step dad – they have a beautiful marriage, filled with love and laughter.
Why did you want engagement photos? Why is this important to you?
SHARNI: We really wanted to have a practice run with Lucinda. I’m not at all comfortable having my photo taken “candidly”, so wanted as much practice as possible prior to the wedding day!
Is there a story surrounding the location you had your photos taken at? Significance? Proposal?
BEN: We actually had our first date here, fish and chips on the beach. Perfect.
