Bianca Taylor was dancing the night away to celebrate her 18th birthday when she spotted Jarrod McNally in the crowd.
“I picked a balloon off the stage and gave it to Jarrod and I guess the rest was history. Jarrod saw me dancing and, in his words, ‘it was done and dusted’,” Bianca, 26, says. “We have now been together for eight years and our connection from the moment we met has been strong.”
Jarrod, 27, proposed on Christmas Day, 2014 and the Mildura, Victoria pair then began planning their classic wedding. The lovebirds wed just across the border at a friend’s property in Gol Gol, New South Wales, on April 9, 2016 in front of 140 friends and family.
The newlyweds and their guests then crossed back into Victoria for the reception at Mildura Club Da Vinci, where the couple once again hit the dance floor, for their first dance as husband and wife. “Jarrod and I surprised our guests with a choreographed dance to Ed Sheeran – Thinking out Loud, which we worked on for over 12 months,” smiles Bianca.
“Our guests danced and sang the night away and we cried and laughed throughout the whole night. We had everyone we care about all in one room sharing the most important day with us.”

Gorgeous make-up and a relaxed up-do had Bianca looking her best for the big day.
Conducted by celebrant Jan Goodieson, the couple’s personalised vows had guests reaching for the tissues!
“Jarrod is the most caring person I know and is always considerate to others,” Bianca says.
“Marriage is a celebration of love and we embraced every moment of the day to the fullest. Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be and more!” the bride says.
Says Bianca, “I get so happy thinking back on how truly perfect the day was.”
