Married on Mar 8, 2014

Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite <3

On the 8th March 2014 Craig & I said our vows at the most beautiful, whimsical Mofam River Lodge in the Elgin Valley. Almost five years of dating and a year and five months engaged the day I had dreamed of finally arrived.

Craig arrived at the ceremony on a speed boat and I came in on the river barge with a bagpiper playing. (Craig’s family is Scottish and he wore a kilt in honour of his Father). With all our loved ones seated under the trees we declared our love for each other. The reception was under a Bedouin tent, with a slight bohemian theme. The love and warmth we felt was indescribable. I lost my Dad, my hero, one month before our big day so it was extremely emotional, but at the same time so happy and magical. Every part of the wedding was like a dream. The speeches were fantastic, the food was divine, and the DJ was the best. We danced until 2am. I get Goosebumps just thinking about it. We are so fortunate and grateful.
