“Somewhere in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale”

WEDDING DATE: 22 April 2016


Tell us about your love story!

My husband worked with my best friend’s husband at a previous workplace. Joel had seen me out and about with them a few times, sent them a message to find out who I was. We ended up going on a date which turned into a full day out. We haven’t really left each other’s side since. We have two beautiful children together.

Joel promised to me over breakfast at the Stamford Grand in Glenelg. He had roses brought to the table and then had a guitarist sing “I wasn’t expecting that” by Jamie Lawson. I balled my eyes out the entire time.

Describe what marriage means to you.

Marriage is about friendship, love, loyalty, being silly and having a laugh. You need to be a team in everything you do and always push each other to be a better person and achieve your goals.

The wedding location.

We got married at the Registry Office in the city and had our reception at the Griffins Hotel. It was perfect!

The theme of your wedding.

We went with a navy colour theme but our whole wedding was focused around celebrating with our kids and close family/ friends.

The bride’s dress.

I bought a beautiful one off dress from you! It was stunning and only needed slight alterations to length (perfect fit right from the start). It was elegant and I felt like a princess! My husband was blown away by my choice.

Wedding songs.

I walked down the aisle to 1000years by Christina Perri. We had our first dance to the song Joel promised to me with “Jamie Lawson – I wasn’t expecting that”

Food, food, food!

The Griffins Hotel catered the event – there was so much food which all tasted amazing!

Most memorable moment.

I had just walked up the aisle and we were about to start when my 2 year old son walked down the aisle and shut the door I came out of. This fit perfectly with his personality and made everyone giggle.

What about the extra details?

We went with some little details that we can keep forever – artificial bouquets so I can keep them for my daughter and a wooden card box that we can keep all our keepsakes in.

What’s the best advice you can give a bride and groom planning their wedding?

Don’t feel like you need to have a huge wedding for it to be perfect. We made the decision to keep it small and have all the people we love and cherish by our sides.

Favourite love quote.

“Somewhere in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale”

What do you look forward to most as Mr. & Mrs.?

We just wanted to be married and start our next chapter together.
