Our Love story began at High School, yes that’s correct, we are highschool sweethearts!
Are journey found us moving to Perth from Tasmania and we couldn’t be happier. On a beautiful Novembers day Andrew proposed on the spectacular beach in Busselton. After 11 years of dating, of course I said Yes!
My amazingly talented parents built a wedding chapel in Latrobe Tasmania meaning the perfect location was set. The dress search however, was not as easy. I went to multiple dress stores across Perth, never finding THE ONE. At last I walked into Dion for Brides and was instantly relaxed. Browsing the gowns without being bugged or prompted to hurry up. The fittings were so special. I didn’t have my mother or bridesmaids with me so Claudia made sure I felt a million bucks and put no pressure on me to make a decision. When I finally put on the dress it was such a surreal moment. Like a total cliché really, I felt as if I was glowing. The dress was perfect, we matched the shoes and a perfect veil with a stunning headpiece. All from the one place! How easy hey.
Our wedding day had a few hiccups as does every big event I am sure, yet being so organised and having a completely relaxed frame of mind on the day made the hiccups barely noticeable. That combined with the love surrounding us from our nearest and dearest made the day ultimate perfection. It was topped off with the most spectacular sunset which made having a clear marquee worth the risk.
All our dreams came true and I truly felt like a goddess in my dream dress!
