MONIQUE MARRIES MATTHEW

City Beach caught up with newlyweds to ask them a few questions about their special day.

How did you both meet?

Through friends, we were friends for a few years prior to becoming a couple.

How did he pop the question?

Matt organised a weekend away on the south coast. On the day I was blindfolded and walked to the lookout which is set on a cliff over looking the ocean where there was rose petals, champagne, fruit and cheese platters and when I turned around Matt was on one knee asking me to marry him. It was such a perfect moment.

Definitely adding in gold to my theme and having a cocktail layout.

Any advice for couples about to tie the knot?

Just enjoy every moment, the day goes by so quickly. I’d highly recommend a videographer so you have the memories forever and you get reminded of things you forgot about. Brides – Make sure you eat the morning/day of your wedding EVEN if your too nervous, Trust me.
