THE FIRST SIGHT

Nick and I met at the gym, he was my personal trainer and after 3 training sessions we started seeing each other. The first date he cooked me a 3 course dinner at his house.

THE PROPOSAL

Nick and I went to Tasmania a place called Binalong bay where Isabelle spends most of her family Christmases. He took her up to her favourite orange rock over looking the ocean and got down on 1 knee and proposed. Back on the beach was X marks the spot with seaweed and dug in the sand was a bottle of Moet champagne to celebrate.

THE VENUE

Stones of the Yarra Valley has a European feel we wanted a venue that was surrounded by vines and was out of the city. We grew up in Tasmania and Nick in New Zealand and wanted something out of the city amongst the Victorian Vines.

THE DRESS

The dress was perfect. I felt like a princess, I had so many comments throughout the night about my dress and how beautiful it looked and I couldn’t of asked for a more WOW dress.

FINDING THE ONE

It was great as soon as we arrived we had champagne, I chose a dress that I had dreamt of wearing and realised it didn’t suit me. The lady chose 4 dresses that thought would compliment my body keeping in mind I wanted long sleeves. The last dress I tried on that she chose was the one. I walked out and my mum couldn’t stop the tears rolling down we were all involve and found “the dream dress”.

ADVICE

Keep an open mind when trying on dresses. let the experts chose the dresses that would suit you. You’ll often find the dress you have in your mind that you’ve dreamt of won’t actually suit you.
