On the 13th of December 2014 I married my best friend! It really was the happiest day of my life, and I wouldn't change a thing. The build up to our special day was amazing, and the excitement shared by our friends and family was really truly heartfelt.
Our dream from the start was for our big day to be a celebration of love, life, family, friends, good food and good wine, and it really was a big party and a elebration of love and life.
I met my Ewan 13 years ago, you could call us high school sweet hearts as clichèd as it may sound. At our prefect camp we were coupled as husband and wife in an ice breaker, and the rest is history.
The ceremony was really beautiful, we were lucky to be married by a truly lovely person, who was very close to my late father, which made this really special. We were beautifully serenaded by our cousins who brought tears to ours and the guests eyes.
Our idea was always to have the ceremony and reception at the same place - and Asara hotel & wine estate was the perfect setting. Someone upstairs was really pulling strings- we had the most beautiful day, despite the crazy weather during the week before our big day.
My dress was a vintage styled lace dress from Olivelli, I loved my dress so much I wore it till 3am celebrating the night away. My beautiful maid of honour and bridesmaid wore pretty peach flowy knee length dresses, perfect for the summer weather. And My handsome groom and his groomsmen were dressed in stunning tailored navy blue suites.
The tables were frosted with crystal chandeliers, loads of candles sources from function hiring 4 u, and the stunning stationary with lace detail and diamantès designed my my close friend and maid of honour and her design company - Ain't it grand. What I really enjoyed was us setting up the hall the night before, despite being chased away saying I should be chilling with a glass of champagne.
Without the love and support of our parents, family and close friends we would not have had such an amazing day, thank you for making our day so unforgettable.
We are truly blessed.
