How did you meet your spouse?

We met at work!

Tell us about your proposal

Jesse took me to the Dandenong Ranges Botanical Gardens, and got down on one knee on a beautiful secluded track near the lake.


Tell us about your wedding dress. How was your experience when you were searching for "The One"?

I tried on lots of different styles of gowns but ended up with one that I initially wasn’t even going to try on! My mum, sister and I immediately knew it was the one when I walked out of the fitting room. Sposa let me customise the lining, sleeves, and created a magnificent bespoke veil to match, making my Dylan Parienty gown one of a kind.


Describe a favourite highlight or two from your wedding day.

We loved having all our family and friends together to celebrate after years of Covid. I also enjoyed my Cinderella moment when Jesse helped me into my shoe.


Do you have any advice for couples currently planning their wedding?

Keep it simple! People won’t remember the details.
