How did you both meet?
We met in 2010, when we both started working at Woolworths Culburra Beach, but we didn’t start dating until 2012.
Who popped the question & how?
We were celebrating our 6 year anniversary in Melbourne. We had always agreed that 6 years was our magic number. We both had engagement rings for each other, ready to propose. Aaron won and proposes at 11.50pm on our anniversary night.
What type of wedding did you plan? What was your theme?
Our wedding theme was to have fun and relax. We wanted our wedding to be a party and just an all round easy night. For both us and our guests.
What quirky features made your wedding unique?
Our wedding was unique because it was midweek on a Wednesday! We wanted to celebrate on our anniversary date and meant we only had our nearest and dearest. We often describe ourselves to be quirky as we don’t do anything normal or take ourselves too seriously. We channeled this into the wedding. From the bride catching a life with the lifesaver buggy and wearing a moonboot (broken foot). To not having a traditional flowers.
Where did you hold your ceremony?
On the beach, in the sand. Right in front of CityBeach. We always wanted a beach wedding.
Why did you choose City Beach?
We choose City Beach because they made everything so easy for us! Everything we wanted and needed was catered to and supplied. The team did everything for us, meaning the only thing we needed to do was show up. The location at City beach was beautiful and the perfect back drop for our day. They also have delicious food and beat most of the rest in price and inclusions
What was it like dealing with Wedding Coordinators, Melissa & Michele?
We couldn’t ask for more. They helped us every step on the way. Told us what to do and when. Made the process super easy.
What was your most memorable moment from the day?
- Having many MANY laughs with the bridal party.
- Taking awesome night shots.
- The boys having a chilli eating contest, having to then chug down milk.
- Any advice for couples about to tie the knot?
- Take the time to spend a moment with your husband/ wife. The night will go super quick, don’t stress if you can’t make it around to everyone.
What was the funniest thing that happened?
The groomsman premature popping a bottle of bubbles during photos and the men at the wedding having a chilli eating contest.
