How did you meet? We met at Northern Bass Festival, I know so romantic haha. I saw one of his friends who I knew and he introduced us!

When and where did you get married? Married 30.01.21 at The Stone Terrace in Hot Water Beach.

What was the theme/aesthetic of your big day? Chic, Coastal, Neutral vibes. White/beige/blush with hints of my favourite colour- khaki green.

What was the biggest source of inspiration while planning your wedding? Pulling bits and bobs of inspiration from everywhere but keeping in line with my dreamt up visual of it blending into the setting- not contrasting. That's why I choose the beautiful clear Llhire Marquee, sand coloured plates, wooden handled cutlery etc. Instagram and pinterest have their place but they can also be super overwhelming!

The most memorable moment from your day: Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing my so soon to be husband shed a little tear, I sure wasn't expecting that!!! But omg bouncing on the Bouncy Castle with my bridesmaids was a BLAST. One of them even tackled me in my dress- needless to say, the dress stood the test totally fine!

The biggest hit on the dance floor was: We did a little surprise dance (the girls from my hens party) which was hilarious- to Forever by Chris Brown. Otherwise, anything Beyonce is always a hit with my friends! Classic!

We honeymooned in: We stayed in Hahei for another week. It is our favourite spot and boy it was beautiful.

Did you always have an idea in mind of what you wanted your dress to look like? I wasn't the kind of girl who had her wedding and dress planned out before she got engaged to be honest! But after seeing a few ideas online and always seeming to save the same pictures, it was clear what I liked!! Trish was able to see my vision straight away and I felt SO confident walking out those beautiful pink doors after my first consultation. Honestly, was such a breezy process and I was over the moon with my gorgeous dress.
