Lovely Bride Lisa tells us her love story,
How did you meet ?
“Our families have know each other for years!”
“My mum and Paul’s dad lived in the same street in Glasgow, Scotland and were in the same class at school.”
“Both families immigrated to Australia and over the years have stayed in touch.”
“Paul and I’s parents have always been close and saw each other regularly, but as we got older Paul and I didn’t see each other for years.”
“In 2005 it turned out we were both travelling Europe at the same time and my parents suggested I catch up with him and his friends for a drink in a pub in Glasgow.”
“That was in 2005.”
“After six years of fun, memories and country hopping, our friendship turned into a relationship and 2 years after that we are married!”
“We were heading up to Noosa and stopped at Montville for lunch.”
“We were enjoying the views when Paul turned me around and got down on one knee.”
“Cue the ugly cry!”
“There were so many laughs on the day, but probably the best man’s speech.”
“He cried his eyes out. It was beautiful but so funny at the same time.”
Favourite Wedding Day moment
“All of it, without a doubt. There is nothing we would change.”
Advice for other brides-to-be
“Make sure everything is done, including the little things, at least two days before the big day.”
“I loved being able to truly relax and soak up the time with family and friends prior to the wedding day.”
“On the day just keep reminding yourself how lucky you are to be marrying the person you love, deep breaths, and enjoy!”
From the pipes, to the kilts to the whisky, this is a truly fantastic Scottish Australian Wedding.
Thanks so much to Ben for allowing me to share this amazing Big Day.
Its incredible that years may pass but bonds remain, and even though we may lose each other for a while, that when we find each other its like coming home.
