Kim and Toby share summer lovin’ at garden wedding in Tassie

Wedding: 18/01/2014

Kimberley Robertson and Toby Skene gained more than fitness when they joined boot camp.

“After a few weeks of group boot-camp sessions my personal trainer cheekily informed me that I had an admirer within the class…Toby [25],” smiles Kim, 28. They were engaged 18 months later but as this bride explains, it was not a fairy tale proposal.

Kim was washing Toby’s work clothes (after her nagging failed to get him on the job), and stumbled across the engagement ring. “Being a hopeless liar and never having kept a secret between us, I promptly rang Toby crying ‘I’ve found something’,” says Kim. Although Toby was upset the surprise was ruined, he promised if they never spoke of it again he would still make the event a surprise – which he did several months later, on Christmas morning, while on holiday at Kim’s parents’ house.

“We married one year later in the exact spot in my parent’s garden where he proposed,” says Kim. The couple opted for a garden wedding with close to 100 guests. “The wedding day was a beautiful summer’s day in Tassie, and believe it or not it was extremely hot,” says the bride. “The reception — a beach side venue — was a perfect end to the day. We had a cocktail style party with beautiful canapés and short, but very sweet, speeches and formalities.”

The bride says not to worry about expectations on your wedding day. If something doesn’t go to plan – it’s at least worth a laugh!

“My brother’s band that had flown over from Melbourne to play at our wedding was absolutely incredible,” smiles Kim.
