How we met:
We met through mutual friends. Myra grew up in Queensland and moved to Port Fairy for a few months after high school to spend time with family that lived down here. She met Ben and never went back to Queensland!
The proposal? how,what when:It was Christmas Day 2015. Ben had planned to proposed on the beach (we both love the ocean) - he was going to tie the ring around our dogs collar, get down on one knee in front of the mighty southern ocean and propose. However it was a 40 degree day and they only made it as far as the carpark before Myra decided it was too hot for a beach walk and drove back home! Ben was far too nervous to wait any longer and ended up proposing in the hallway of their home!
Theme and colour palette:We wanted a day that reflected us. We are very laid back, we love nature and didn't want to be left with lots of plastic decorations that would just end up in landfill. There was no specific theme or colour palette, we just used what we could find - driftwood from the beach, shells, native flowers and foliage, timber logs - it looked beautiful!
