Find a little more about them and their special day below…
How did he propose?
It was Dan’s birthday, we freezing in Stanthorpe with my family for dinner when he proposed to me saying “all he wanted for his birthday was for me to say yes”.
What made your wedding day amazing?
Other than marrying the love of my life? Having all of our family and friends in one place made it truly amazing & a massive shout out to all of the staff at the Crowne Surfers Paradise especially our coordinator Annmaree, you guys made everything run perfectly for a stress free day.
Did you incorporate any traditions into your wedding day?
We did a hand tying ceremony where each of our bridal party wrapped our hand in a different colour ribbon each colour represented a different meaning.
Did you create/do anything to make your wedding unique or show your personality?
We got our hands on some Instacameras where our guests could take their own photos. We got some great shots alone with quite a few hilarious ones!
Do you have any tips for future Brides and Grooms planning a wedding?
Don’t let other people try to sway your decisions with their opinions! We almost pulled the pin and eloped as everyone else’s opinions and advise was forced upon us taking away from what we wanted and what was important to us. Make sure you savour every second of the day from the first sip of coffee in the morning to the walk back to your room the day goes way to fast if you don’t.
Where did you honeymoon?
We are heading over to Italy at the end of September as we pulled the wedding together in under 3 months we have had to re-save some funds so we can head off and explore.
