Young love blossoms into Lauren and Shane’s formal wedding

Wedding: 08/09/2015

Posted by Kate | 14 December, 2015

Whirlwind is the perfect way to describe Lauren Vautier and Shane Corrigan’s romance.

The Brisbane couple, both 21, met in a coffee shop. “Shane literally bumped into me and then said ‘you look beautiful’… eight months later we were engaged and eight months after that we got married!” says Lauren. “I guess when you know, you know.”

For the proposal, Shane and some friends built a timber arbour, draped in fabric and fairy lights. Lauren was led to the site blindfolded and as their favourite song played, Shane got down on one knee. “He planned the most jaw-dropping proposal,” Lauren recalls.

The couple quite literally took to the stage for their formal wedding, at Brisbane’s Princess Theatre, held on September 18, 2015  in front of 150 guests.

Reception celebrations followed at Mirra, Fortitude Valley, with elegant, simple decor supplied by Adorn Event Hire.

Lauren says, in their eyes, the day was perfect.

“We planned a wedding while both working full-time in eight months alone,” she says.

“People kept telling us that it goes so fast and I never thought it would go as fast as it did.”

Lauren describes herself as blessed for finding her gorgeous and unique gown. She kept it simple for the bridesmaids’ dresses with identical black lace numbers.
