♥ How did you first meet?
Gavin and I met through a mutual friend. The day we met my friend Judy was over helping me take up a dress for a bride and bridesmaid party I was going to. Gavin had rang Judy to catch up and he came over to hang out with us. The first time he saw me I was standing on a table in a Wedding Dress .
♥ What was the proposal like?
Gavin’s proposal was the day before my Birthday, I was pregnant with our son and we were sitting outside on our veranda. He handed me and empty box and asked me to Marry him. (He had the ring on his little finger).
♥ How did you find planning the wedding?
Planning our wedding with Michelle and the team at Pelican Waters Golf Club was very low stress and easy. When it came to the ceremony and reception Gavin chose everything, I gave him the colour for the bridesmaid dresses and off he went. The ladies at Cloud nine were very surprised that I trusted Gavin to choose everything. All suppliers that we dealt with were professional and helpful.
♥ What was most important to you for your special day?
Ultimately the most important thing for us was that our day went smoothly and everyone enjoyed themselves.
♥ What did you love about Pelican Waters Golf Club?
Firstly we loved how flexible Michelle and the team were when discussing things that we wanted for our wedding. The reasonable price, friendly and fun staff who genuinely appeared to enjoy their jobs and look after our guests very well. The staff also doted on Gavin’s 80 Year old Grandmother who had flown in from England on her own to be at our wedding and my Mother who is in a wheel chair, We wanted our guest to feel just as important as us and they did.
♥ Favourite memory?
It’s hard to pick just one, the entire event was amazing. Gavin’s favourite memory is the moment I was walking over the bridge and he saw me in my dress for the first time, he also loved the wildlife on the Golf course. We had a Pelican at the ceremony, a black swan while having photos around the course that came really close to us. My favourite memory is cutting our cake as it was the only thing I chose and it worked.
♥ Where did you honeymoon?
Our Honeymoon was on Moreton Island we went on a short trip away, as we have our own business and couldn’t take to much time away. Gavin was still booking jobs while we were away.
♥ Would you recommend Pelican Waters Golf Club?
We found Michelle to be very accommodating to the style of wedding we wanted, she was flexible with every decision we had to make, this made the experience every low stress and enjoyable. We felt that the experience and attention to detail throughout the entire wedding process with Pelican Waters Golf Club was outstanding and I am constantly recommending them to anyone that asks. We can honestly say that we were extremely happy with every aspect of our wedding and the value for money experience we received.
♥ What suppliers did you use for your wedding?
We also took on Michelle’s recommendations for our wedding suppliers and we are grateful and extremely happy that we did.
