Interview Kelly & Daniel
How did you both meet?
Daniel had played football with my brothers for many years so we had always known each other. We started talking at a function in 2016, continued to catch up on nights out and started dating in 2017.
Who popped the question & how?
Daniel planned a weekend to Sydney staying at our favourite hotel. I thought it was just like any other weekend away to Sydney until we arrived and I opened the door to find rose petals scattered everywhere. It led to “will you marry me” being written out in rose petals on the bed.
What type of wedding did you plan? What was your theme?
After looking at several venues, we knew that City Beach was the venue for us. We loved the relaxed beach surrounds and amazing views. Our theme was natural, rustic/beachy which fitted with the venue amazingly. We wanted our wedding to be a relaxed and enjoyable night with our closest family and friends, and we were definitely happy with the outcome!
Where did you hold your ceremony?
We were married at Unanderra Immaculate Conception Church. This was special for us because we both went to primary school at St Pius X.
What was it like dealing with Wedding Coordinators, Melissa & Michele?
Every step of the planning process went smoothly. Any questions I had were answered and things were explained so well. I never felt pressured and was able to communicate with the girls very easily.
What’s your No 1 go to song that HAD to be included in your playlist?
We had listened to James Arthur ‘Say you won’t let go’ many times over the years and we always knew it would be the song for our first dance.
What was your most memorable moment from the day?
Walking back down the aisle through all our family and friends after saying our vows and being greeted by them as they came out of the church is a moment we will always remember.
What was the funniest thing that happened?
We had so many laughs while getting our photos taken with our bridesmaids and groomsmen. They played a special part in our wedding and these moments will always be cherished.
What parts made you cry?
There were a few emotional moments throughout the day. Seeing each other for the first time, having family travel to be with us and our first dance, were some of those moments.
Any advice for couples about to tie the knot?
Don’t let the stress get to you, enjoy the day and have fun because it will go so quickly.
