Every time Kirstie Francis parks her car, she has a reminder of a very special memory; when Adam Leach proposed.
“We enjoy having a laugh about the ‘carpark proposal,” explains Kirstie, 27. “Adam [also 27] had planned to propose on our flight to Tasmania but that didn’t go to plan.” Adam had become really nervous and before he knew it the flight was over. But that didn’t stop him from going ahead. “He ended up popping the question in the airport carpark after we landed,” smiles Kirstie.
So from a not so romantic proposal to a stunningly romantic wedding, the pair married on May 22, 2015. “I had always dreamed of an autumn wedding as I think that there is nothing more beautiful than falling leaves and rich autumn colours,” says Kirstie.
They married with 110 guests at Poet’s Lane in Sherbrooke, Victoria. “Our ceremony was much more emotional than I expected,” smiles the bride. “Both Adam and I couldn’t hold back the tears.” She praised the setting of the venue saying the gazebo was the perfect spot to wed her man.
The couple say they felt like a king and queen at their wedding. They followed up the big day with a honeymoon in Bali.

Kirstie’s stunning lace strapless gown was from Nifi Bridal.
“It was a chilly day,” says the bride. “But we were very keen to marry outdoors.”
Adam and his crew were dressed by wedding experts Ferrari Formalwear & Bridal.
“Everyone will warn you the day goes incredibly fast,” smiles Kirstie.
