How did you and your partner meet?
“It was well and truly young love as Jonathan and I met when we were neighbors and have been dating since I was 15 years old.”
How did he propose?
“The evening started with a helicopter ride to Sydney from the Blue Mountains.”
“We were then driven in a Bentley to the Park Hyatt from the airport.”
“There we had a beautiful degustation dinner in the ‘Dining Room’ followed by a romantic walk along the harbour where he proposed with the perfect view overlooking all of the lights. My husband is very spontaneous!”
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
“Originally, I wanted a beach wedding which slowly evolved into a vineyard wedding which, when looking for venues in the Hunter Valley, turned into an end product at the Hunter Valley Gardens where I got the best of all worlds.”
How did you choose your wedding gown?
“It was quite the process as it took many, many shopping trips!”
“I drew my inspiration for my wedding gown from lots of pins on my dream board.”
“Interestingly enough, the dress I ended up with was completely different to what I had imagined but as soon as you see the perfect one, you just know. I fell in love with it!”
Any DIY décor elements?
“DIY elements included the place cards and the table and seating chart.”
What was your favorite moment from the day?
“My favourite moment from our wedding day was when my husband and I took the time to go offsite with our photographer, videographer and wedding party between the ceremony and reception to capture some heartfelt shots.”
“For us, it important to really take in the day and everything that had happened so far and to share in the excitement of the evening ahead with those we love most.”
If you could do it all over again, what would you change?
“Nothing!!! I can actually say I look back and love all of my memories – of course there were some little hiccups, but I think it made the day pretty special overall.”
Any tips that you can give to future couples?
Let all of the decisions be yours and your partner’s – everyone has opinions on what they think it should look like, well intended I am sure, but in order to be super satisfied with how your day unravels, you need to know that every decision you made was of that and your other half.”
