Your Love Story

Please tell us a little about your love story, how you met, your engagement?

Lee and I met as i moved in next door to him around – April 2014. We moved in together shortly around two months later.
We got engaged over in Bali whilst on holidays in Nusa Lembongan on the 8th October 2016.

Destination Wedding

Why did you choose a destination wedding and what was the best thing about having a destination wedding?

We love the area this is our home

Hens and Bucks

What did you do for your hens and bucks nights?

Lee went to Cairns with the boys for 4 days and hired a house. 
I went to Bali with a handful of girlfriends and also went on the sun-downer cruise two days prior to the wedding so all my family and other guests could attend, we then went to dinner at La Marina

Wedding Day Vision

Did your wedding have a theme or a particular style? Please give details if possible about styling, dress, jewelry etc.

We went with Gold and navy – love both colours.

Cocktail or Sit Down

How many guests did you have and was it cocktail or sit down? What was the reason behind these choices?

We had a cocktail style – around 70 people.

We wanted to keep it very low key and for everyone to have fun and mingle not sit down the whole night. Lee and i both didnt want the traditional wedding as we are very casual people.

Splurge Vs Save

Where did you splurge and where did you save?

We didn’t really splurge – we kept everything simple – i made all of the decorations etc – I did all of our planning and organising. 
We hired a few things from Divine Weddings, like tables and the Altar etc – They completed all of the set up for me. but all over we kept everyhting to a tight budget as we have a mortgage and we also didnt care to spend huge amounts of money on our wedding.

Whitsunday Wedding Venue

Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venue?

WE LOVE the VMR – its easy accessible – right on the water and it is just beautiful. They were so flexible and easy going. We liked the idea of DIY and we had a lot of fun putting the day together and organisation of our food!!

Honeymoon Heaven

Did you have a honeymoon? If so where did you go? 

Yes we went to Hawaii for two and a half weeks. Explored all the Islands.
