Interview - Tegan & Mitchell
Wedding Date | 12/10/2019
How did you both meet?
We swiped right
How did he pop the question?
Mitchell surprised Tegan with a weekend away to Wollongong in September of 2018. He took her to the lighthouse at Flagstaff Hill and while overlooking the water, got down on one knee and asked her to spend forever together.
What type of wedding did you plan, what was your theme?
We stuck to really simple colours, ivory florals with lots of greenery. We liked the rustic wood as well so we used that as part of our centerpieces, place tags and table numbers.
Which quirky features made your wedding unique?
The whales that joined us while Tegan was making her way down the aisle – such a special moment.
Where did you hold the ceremony?
We had booked to hold our ceremony on Flagstaff Hill, at the lighthouse where Mitchell proposed. However, the weather had other plans and City Beach did an amazing job at setting up our ceremony in our function room as back up.
Why did you choose City Beach?
We had decided to get married in Wollongong, so drove down for a weekend and went to a few wedding open days at different venues. When we got to City Beach, it was a totally different experience than any others we had been to earlier in the day. Leanne was so helpful and had made time to answer any questions we had. There was so much included in our package and we felt like that made it so much easier for us. We didn’t have to think about extras, because majority was included. However, they were also so accommodating with being open to us changing things, adding things and were so patient during the whole process. Also, the food is AMAZING!
What was the most memorable moment from the day?
Being pronounced Husband and Wife :)
What was it like dealing with Wedding Coordinator Melissa?
She was so patient and so helpful throughout the entire process of planning the wedding. She would always get back to us so quickly with any questions we had.
What’s your No.1 go to song that had to be included in your playlist?
Pony – Ginuwine. There was no way Mitchell was getting married without dancing to that song hahaha.
Who was your dream team for the day?
Venue | City Beach Function Centre
Celebrant | Julie Rynne - Melose Memorable Moments
Photographer | Pepper Images
Florals | All Ocassions
Cake | Delaneys
Any advice for couples about to tie the knot?
Absolutely. Make sure that as difficult as it can be, you make decisions about your wedding that make YOU happy. Not to please anyone else. There is no ‘right’ way to have a wedding, so be sure that it’s authentic to you and how you want your day to be remembered.
