RC – How did you meet Paul?

Paul and I met online.

RC – How did Paul propose?
After dating for a year and a half and having many date nights at Crown for dinner and a movie, I didn’t think anything different on March 14th 2015. After our dinner and movie we walked back to the car (which was parked on the roof top, with an amazing view of the city) Paul popped the question!

RC – Is there a particular reason as to why you chose your venue?
Besides Lakeside it being a beautiful venue, we got an incredible deal. Free accommodation in Vegas, which we added to our 4 week trip to the USA/ Mexico.

RC – Your favourite part of the wedding?
Oh, I loved it all!
As cliche as it sounds, my favourite part was getting to marry the man of my dreams.

RC – How did the dress make you feel?
My amazing dress! It made me feel beautiful. My dream dress, which I thought I wouldn’t be able to wear due to being a plus size woman. But due to the ‘Curve’ range, i was able to properly try on my dress and see how well it would fit my body.

RC – How was your bridal shopping experience at RC?
Everyone was very helpful at RC, Brunswick but a special Thanks is due to Francesca. She was very helpful and honest in a respectful manner.

RC – Advise for brides to be?
Don’t leave things to the last minute. Book and order as much as you can as early as you can. Enjoy it while you don’t have to stress about deadlines. No matter how organised you are, the last couple months are always stressful!
