How We Met:

We met at a friends party one night. Neither of us wanted to go, but changed our minds at the last minute. It was fate I guess. We had our first date on the 12 Nov 06 and we've never been apart since.

The Proposal:

We went down to Sydney for a week for my birthday in August. We had been down there for 4 days when we were going to the Sydney Opera House to check out the view at night. At the top of the top of the steps he pulled out a beautiful ring that he had picked himself and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes! We then went out for dinner and spent the night calling friends and family of the exciting news.

Wedding Dress:

Was a La Sposa gown. As soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. It was a stapless white gown with swarovski crystals around the bodice and a ruffled skirt and train. The veil had matching swarovski cystals.

Accessories:

I keep my accessories to a minimum due to the detailing in the gown. I bought diamond necklace, bracelett and earrings from secrets. As a gift to my bridesmaid I bought them some diamond earrings to wear on the day.

Groom's Attire:

Suits were rented from Spurling Suits in Brisbane. The boys scrubed up quite nicely in the end!

Bridesmaids

I had two bridesmaids and both choose the exact same black dress from Mr K. We decided on black cocktail dresses so they would be able to wear the dress again.

Wedding Theme:

Black and white with a slash of pink and orange.

Flowers:

My bouquet was a mini shower of roses and phal orchids in white, while my bridesmaids had pink and orange roses and stock florets.

Ceremony Reception Decor

We had Styled Events come in a design the ceremony location and reception. We had an all white ceremony with chair covers and white aisle runner. And our reception we had pink and orange uplights and a 'lounge' area near the bar and dance floor. The room looked fantastic!

Transport:

VIP Limos. We had hired a 9 seater black limo. It was such a beautiful car and I felt like royalty when inside. While driving around people stopped and waved. I felt like a princess!

Bomboniere:

We had personalised glass shot glasses which read: Nick and Amy Taking a shot at Marriage 12 Nov 2011 They came packaged in a clear box with 2 foiled chocolate hearts inside and pink and orange ribbon. They looked fantastic and were a huge hit!

Cake:

Cupcake society. We had 4 tier wedding cake with Cherry Ripe, Caramel, White Chocolate and Raspberry and choc fudge. We served our wedding cake as dessert with fresh cream and coulis and it tasted devine!

Entertainment:

DJ Lennie! He was fantastic! He sang beautiful world for us. he was fantastic, I had no idea he could sing! It was unreal.

Honeymoon:

We spent 1 week at day dream island. The perfect honeymoon.

Special Moments:

The whole day. Being pronounced husband and wife, and knowing that I'll be with the man I love for the rest of my life.

Tips:

The whole day is amazing. It's been said before and I'll say it again. The day really does go by so so fast. Take a moment to enjoy yourself and live in the moment. If something doesn't work out dont fret about it. Remember why you are there and enjoy yourself. It's only 1 day and it really does go by all too quickly.
