We both lived in the Philippines, but there was only one place to get married, back home. I thought Mum had it all under control – well she did, but she had Melissa as our “Hidden Bridesmaid” and let me tell you nothing would have been done without her. Thank you for all your love and care, the day was just brilliant!

We would have never known where to start. Oh, actually we did…..we called you and you became our very own Hidden Bridesmaid. How do you keep up, as there is so much to do? Because of you, we had the best 4 day wedding a couple could ever dream of!

Getting married was going to be a nightmare with me traveling all the time and Andrea new to Adelaide – thank goodness for you Sis! Andrea didn’t have any bridesmaids, well she did have one, a “Hidden One”! Thanks again for all your help and making the flower girl dresses as well – what a brilliant day.”
