How we met:

Liam and I grew up just a block from each other and attended the same primary school without knowing it. Many years passed and my parents, who owned a business in Warrnambool at the time, used the Telstra business centre for their telecommunications where Liam just happened to be a representative. It was there that Liam and I met. Liam made contact with me outside of business hours offering any assistance with the phone I purchased from him should the need arise, the rest is history….

The proposal? how,what when:

Liam and I went to our favourite resort in Bali. Without me knowing Liam had hidden my engagement ring, which he had selected without any assistance, in his golf bag. I did wonder why he was so protective of his golf bag on the trip I must admit. On March 24th 2016 overlooking Tanah Lot Temple on the cliff face of the Indian Ocean while the sun was setting, Liam got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Needless to say after 7 years, the answer was YES. Liam had organised a photographer to capture the moment and then a private dining experience on the cliff afterwards. It was beautiful.

Theme and colour palette:

Liam and I wanted our guests to feel comfortable and in the party mood. We wanted everyone to dance the night away, which we certainly achieved, with every guest on the dance floor, including my grandma. My favourite flowers are succulents and white gladioli so this was the base for our colour palette. Candles were the order of the day with about 500 lining the walls both during the ceremony and the reception.
