My dress was simple, elegant, and just perfect. I would put it on every day if I could.
Meg and Shirin were absolutely amazing to work with – their guidance and advice saw us dream up a design that felt sophisticated and chic. The silk was a dream to wear all day, and couldn’t pass up wearing a veil – that paired with my long train added those pieces of extra magic. I felt every bit a bride on the day.
Rob and I crossed paths amongst mutual friends nearly 8 years ago, but it wasn’t until over a year later that we bumped into each other at our local supermarket (turns out we had lived a few minutes away from each other our entire lives). We got talking, went our separate ways, and by the time I got home there was a message on my phone asking if I’d meet him for a drink at our local bistro. I knew he was something special very early on.
Can you tell us about your engagement story?
Our engagement still blows my mind. Rob had organised a surprise weekend away and on arrival to the international (that part really threw me!) airport he told me we were flying to Sydney. What followed was a clifftop proposal looking out over Freshwater Bay, with a ring Rob had been designing for the 6 months prior. He had organised for my gorgeous friend and her now husband to meet us on the beachfront below the lookout, where champagne and a picnic were waiting for us.
What would your one piece of advice for our brides to be?
One lovely piece of advice my Mum gave me… Keep coming back to what it’s really all about – marrying the person you love, and starting this next chapter of your lives together.
It can be easy to get swept up in the planning of it all – the menus, wet weather plans, and travel logistics (at times I was very guilty of this), but at the end of the day it’s about celebrating your love – don’t lose sight of that.
