THE FIRST SIGHT
We met on a Contiki trip in Europe, we spent 25 days on a bus with 40 other people seeing the sights and partying around Europe. After the Contiki tour, we travelled around Europe for 6 weeks together. We then did long distance from Perth and New Zealand for 6 months before deciding to move to Melbourne together.
We were on holiday in the Kimberley region in WA and Paul had organised for us to spend the night on a luxurious houseboat at the horizontal waterfalls a natural wonder of the area. We took a helicopter ride over the waterfalls at sunset, the helicopter then dropped us off on a private pontoon where Paul proposed and we popped some champagne. The helicopter then picked us up and we spend the night celebrating on the boat with the other guests.
We had a lot of guests travelling from all over the world so it was important that we could have the ceremony and reception all in one location. Abbotsford Convent is such a beautiful place with a wonderful history and we felt it really represented Melbourne in the best way. We also loved that we had creative freedom to decorate the reception room as we wanted. It meant we could make the room really reflect us as a couple.
THE FAVOURITE MOMENT
It was seeing Paul standing at the altar when I walked into the church. It felt like it was just him and I in this wonderful moment together. We looked at each other as I walked down the aisle we were both crying and every time I think about it, it makes me smile.
I wore the Onesi by Pronovias Dress.
It made me feel beautiful and amazing. I have never worn a dress that fitted me so well. I wanted something modern with some traditional elements like the lace. I loved the pure white element it really made me stand out on the day and the train made it have a bit of a dramatic feel.
FINDING THE ONE
It was really great! My Mum and I went dress shopping together and we met Jo at the Armadale shop. She was so amazing at listening to what I wanted and making recommendations. She made me feel really special throughout the whole process.
I had 2 alterations and the team were great I was over the moon at my final fitting the dress was just perfect!
