The Proposal

Matt decided to propose during a holiday in America in 2014. They had spent both Christmas and New Year there, but he waited until the 3rd of February to pop the question. It was incredibly romantic and movie-like, it happened in Central Park, New York which was covered in snow. As they were crossing a small wooden bridge, he handed her a book titled “Reasons Why I Love You”. On the last page he wrote, “will you marry me?”. “I looked up in total shock and saw Matt on one knee”, said Sandra. “We were both in tears, and I nodded YES!”.

The Venue

They had a beautiful garden ceremony and a sit-down reception at Ravensthorpe which is a majestic 19th-century property in Albion Park, NSW.

Make a run sheet of the day, so everyone knows where they need to be.

The Theme

Their wedding theme was ‘modern romance’ with a soft colour palette comprising white, green and blush pink hues.

The Dress

The bride wore a stunning custom-made column gown with lace and illusion bodice by Mary Iaoannidis Couture together with earrings by Georgini.

The Suit

The groom looked fabulous in a navy dinner jacket by MJ Bale.

The Bridesmaids' Dresses

The bridesmaids wore gorgeous blush pink dresses by Zimmerman in all different styles to match their style and body shape.

I had my speech prepared 6 months before the wedding. This gave me more than enough time to make sure I was comfortable with my speech so I wasn’t nervous on the day and more importantly, I didn’t need to read off a piece of paper, or palm cards on the night.
