Magical Moments


When people ask me what my favourite part of my wedding day was I cannot help but be taken back to the special moment when my dearest daddy walked me down the aisle. I experienced such joy having my hero walk me down the aisle towards my prince - two of my favourite guys in the whole world! Knowing my father was right beside me, and seeing my soon-to-be husband welling up with tears when he saw me walking towards him is a treasured memory that I will keep with me forever.

The Honeymoon


My husband, Brad, planned a truly amazing honeymoon in Zanzibar. It was so beautiful - the perfect start to our life together.

The Venue

We had our reception at Thornbirds Conference and Wedding Centre, but had the wedding ceremony at our church - Brackenhurst Methodist.

Marriage Officer

This is a special one. My grandfather is a minister, and ever since I was little I would give him very clear orders that he was going to marry me one day. It was truly special having my grandfather marry me and Brad.

The Reception and Entertainment

Brad always says that he has two left feet, however, he was determined to learn how to dance for our special day. We found a dance studio in Randhart and ended up with such a talented dance teacher who was incredibly patient with us. We decided that we wanted a choreographed "first dance" to our favourite song: "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Frankie Valli. We practised and practised and practised - and we nailed it! The dance even included a spin where Brad lifted me off the ground. We were so nervous about it, but we did it perfectly that night. A picture of our spin can be viewed in the gallery.
