Unfolding in the outdoors and surrounded by lush greenery, the wedding between Cheryl and Josh was classically stunning and oh so romantic.

How did you know your partner is “the one”?

He stuck with me through thick and thin, through the toughest times of my early career.

Tell us a little about the proposal and the lead up to the wedding?

Balls Head Reserve on a rainy day, booking the first venue we visited and getting married 8 months later!

What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme / vibe?

Simple, clean, modern, with some contrast provided by the venue!

Favourite detail and/or moment of the day (besides becoming husband and wife of course! or Wife and Wife, or Husband and Husband!)

The speeches were definitely a highlight, but more so being able to spend the day with our most loved family and friends.

Did you undertake any DIY projects, if so what?

Everything we had time for – bombonieres (credit to Josh’s mum for the pouches), name tags, menus, all printed at home at the last minute!

What does marriage mean to you?

A lifelong commitment to love, support and respect each other. A partner to share joy and sadness with. The beginning of family.

Talk to us about your dress, where is it from? How long did it take to find etc 

Luv Bridal at Lane Cove. With promised deals everywhere we went, it wasn’t long before I put a deposit down. One tailor’s visit and plenty more alterations by mum later, we finally achieved the end product!

Any funny stories in the lead up to or on the day?

Getting booted out of a café at my hens party for bringing our own food and having unplanned visitors on our boat in

Sydney Harbour (though just for minutes and nothing like the bucks party I’m sure!)

Advice for other couples planning a wedding?

Be aware of your timeline, the days fly by quicker than expected. Help each other out, remember to be nice to everyone. Everything pans out eventually 🙂
