In the words of the bride;
"I have always dreamed of my wedding, I was one of those little girls who spent hours daydreaming about meeting my prince charming, falling in love, finding my dream wedding dress and getting married and living happily ever after.

Dale and I met a decade ago and have been together for about 9 years. I was lucky to meet my Prince so young, lucky to grow up with him, and even luckier that as the years went by, we grew closer and closer together.

Dale popped the question in our home one Sunday morning in 2014. From that moment, step by step, every one of my dreams for our wedding fell into place. I was incredibly blessed and privileged to work with a wonderful bunch of people who listened and understood our vision for our day.

We made our vows under the poplar trees at D'Aria wine farm, an incredible venue to have our special day, we laughed and cried big happy tears as we experienced this profound moment accompanied by 134 of our closest friends and family. Our ceremony was short and sweet and spoke deep into our hearts. It was everything I dreamed of and more.

We spent a short while with our photographer and videographer, capturing our gorgeous day, then joined our reception. The reception hall was so wonderfully decorated in the green and white vision I always had. The speeches were a great mix of comical and deep elements, thereafter we were treated to the best dinner we have ever had. Our guests are still talking about the food!

We danced our first dance as husband and wife to Ellie Goldings, "How Long Will I Love you", which was perfectly matched to our journey together. Our dance floor was filled throughout the night and we only left at 2 am.

We have always been told that weddings go by in a flash so we both made an effort to constantly be mindful of the love and magic and the fabulous details that made our special day, it was thanks to the wonderful advice we received, that we both soaked in every moment, taking in the beauty of it all, and have memories that will last a lifetime and more.

I am thrilled to share our experience with SA weddings and enter this exciting competition. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to share our love and commitment."
