How did you meet your spouse?

My husband and I both met at university when we were studying law, and we got married seven years later.


Tell us about your proposal

My husband proposed to me at the end of the COVID restrictions when everyone in Melbourne was allowed to socialise in open spaces and parks. He surprised me and asked me to go for a walk with him to my favourite park, Alexandra Gardens in Kew. When we arrived, a whole arrangement was set up in the Park Gondola and that’s when my husband got down on one knee and proposed!


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

My maid of honour, mother in law and her sister all attended The Sposa Group and we picked out a few wedding dresses of various styles to see what suited. When I tried on my wedding dress, I instantly knew it was the one when I walked out of the dressing room and saw myself in the mirror. Everyone's unanimous reaction - we all said yes to the dress right away!


Describe a favourite highlight or two from your wedding day.

The whole day was an absolute blast, we had a very intimate wedding and planned each part as we wanted to ensure a personalised experience to enjoy with each other and loved ones.

Our first dance was something that we both enjoyed and will always put a smile to our face thanks to the special effects which my husband arranged to surprise me on the day.


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

Having styled the wedding primarily on our own - make sure to tailor the day and hire vendors who provide arrangements and services to cater to your needs, and who also have the expertise to take over on the day so you can enjoy all the special moments you’ve planned together.
