Tell Us Your Love Story
How did you meet?We met in Auckland, New Zealand where we both grew up. One of my best friends played in George’s band. I watched them play one night (George was the drummer), and he made an impression. We went on our first date the following day and the rest, as they say, is history.
How did he put a ring on it? At our local park where we often stroll through. He waited for the sun to come out and read a list of 30 reasons why he loves me.
Where did you draw inspiration from? My sister’s wedding. The focus was on the celebration, music, and dancing.
What made the wedding personal to you? We had a surprise Balkan brass band play with everyone on the dance floor. Everyone got very into it – including the Aussies and Kiwis – they loved it! We also had a good friend officiate the ceremony and another good friend MC – they both did a stellar job.
What were you most nervous or excited about? Walking down the aisle and our first dance! We did a fun little choreography to Sunday Morning by Maroon 5.
Now, the most important part – the Dress!
Tell us about your dress? My dress is the Farrow gown. I love the sheer blush bodice with ivory lace on top. The colour and fit was flattering and it was super comfortable.
What stockist did you get it from? Bluebell Bridal, Melbourne
What was your most memorable moment from your day? That’s a very difficult question. I think walking down the aisle and seeing all our friends and family waiting in anticipation, here for us, in this beautiful garden setting. It was quite magical. Otherwise, seeing all our friends’ surprised faces and dancing to traditional Balkan music was awesome.
