♥How did you first meet?
Dwayne and I met online nearly four years ago and we met in person two weeks later at the pub.
♥ Tell me about the proposal…
A beautiful Friday night in February Dwayne took me to our favourite Italian restaurant and then we went to Mt Coot-tha where he popped the question, I was totally surprised.
♥ How did you find planning the wedding?
I’m a list person, my family had bets on how many lists I’d have and how organised I’d be. I actually only ever made one list (to prove them all wrong!) and that was the guest list. The day before the wedding my Mum was begging me to write a list so I didn’t forget anything on the day, but I didn’t and luckily I didn’t forget anything! I was fairly relaxed during most of the planning, and went with the flow. Extremely lucky I had my mum and bridesmaids support!
♥ What was most important to you for your special day?
It was so important to us that we shared our day with our closest family and friends. We had family travel from England as well as from Cairns and rural queensland to attend.
♥ What did you love about Pelican Waters Golf Club?
The first time we saw the Pelican Waters Golf Club we both fell in love with it. The thing that sold the golf club to us was the bridge! We also loved that it was intimate, beautifully manicured and the staff were amazing - Michelle made the lead up to the day effortless and was always available to meet or discuss on the phone anything I needed, and Jodie on the day was amazing!!! Dwayne and I can’t thank Jodie enough for the day!
♥ What is your favourite moment/memory from your wedding day?
My favourite memory was walking across the bridge/down the aisle with my dad and seeing Dwayne for the first time! The weather was absolutely perfect, we couldn’t have picked a better day.
♥ Where did you honeymoon? Tell me about that…
We went to Thailand and stayed in a resort in Khao Lak, the weather was terrible but we still had a great time!
