Tell us about the proposal
Our proposal was low key and intimate. Sitting on the beach looking out to the ocean.
Key Styling Inspiration
We had no real theme in mind. We only knew that we wanted it simple yet sophisticated with dashes of colour around. I also spent a lot of time with my amazing mum (who was always there for a chat and to offer advice) searching Pinterest and organizing small details.
What did you do for your honeymoon?
We didn’t honeymoon as Alasdair’s family had made such a long journey to see us. We will however be honeymooning in Europe next year!
What was the funniest moment from the day?
One of our groomsmen received a fine for trying to fix the suspenders fiasco!
What was the most special memory from the day?
Walking down the isle to my husband. Seeing how wonderful he looked and how nervous he was. Knowing that this was the best decision either of us had made! Definitely seeing all our family and friends in the same place enjoying themselves. With Alasdair’s family living overseas, it was the first time our two families were meeting. It was just an amazing feeling knowing that everyone had traveled so far to share our special day with us!
What advice would you give other couples to be?
Use a wedding planner! They’re fantastic and have done it all before. They have a million suggestions if needed and are always there to chat or talk through the decisions you need to make. Plus, they know the area and all the great suppliers!
I had a wonderful wedding planner, Roxy from The Wedding Planners Whitsundays. She absolutely went above and beyond! I couldn’t have done it without her!
Make sure you read reviews and do your research before making any decisions. Let the guests do what they want! It’s not worth the stress of trying to micro manage a big group.
Special Thanks to
A massive thank-you to my amazing mother and Roxy from The Wedding Planners Whitsundays, I couldn’t have done it without you both!!!
