Where did you meet?
Tinder - In 2018 we made the best swipe right of our loves ;)
What part of your dress did you love the most?
THE POCKETS! this was a gamechanger. Alongside this, the beaded detail and the fact it was such a breathable material really helped on the day. I also had an absolutely beautiful veil from Etcetera which was lace goodness!
What did you like the most about your wedding day?
It's hard to choose just one thing. Our vendors were astounding! we couldn't have achieved our dream day without them. Our bridal party for being down for anything including a choreographed entry song the night before (LOL). Our venue was beautiful and day coordinator Carlene was amazing. We were lucky to avoid any lockdowns and limitations which we were very thankful for. Our final escape to the beach was one of mine and my husbands favourite moments because it was just us (and our amazing videographer Ruben from RubTech Productions and second photographer Kim) but it was a bit of quite from the rush of the day.
Any advice for future brides?
When they say the day goes quickly, this is no word of a lie! As incredible and fun as our special day was, we found taking time and being in the moment so important. And we had a significant blunder for the day where our original photographer cancelled 45 minutes before I was due to walk down the aisle) to say they couldn't attend. Our amazing vendors worked together to sort alternatives which we fortunately had with our hairdresser and our videographer with the amazing Kim stepping in later in the evening. So, my BIGGEST advice is meet and make sure you gel with your vendors as they are as much a part of your special day as your loved ones. .
