The Proposal

He suggested we get a nice photo out the front before we go in...

Pierre’s birthday is the 14th of February, Valentine’s Day, and I had arranged to take him out for dinner at The George on Collins. He suggested we get a nice photo out the front before we go in. So, we asked a nice passerby if they could please take a photo for us. He then turned to me and proposed. The lady taking our photo, switched it to video mode, so we have both photos and videos of the gorgeous moment.

Our ceremony was on the balcony of the Melbourne Town Hall.  I loved the columns, and I found it in keeping with the style of The George Ballroom.  I really wanted everything to flow nicely.  We had exactly 100 guests. We wanted only our closest friends and family there.

Our reception was at The George Ballroom in St Kilda, with 100 guests. The George is simply amazing.  It is by far the most beautiful venue I think I have seen in Melbourne.  The way they have restored it is so divine, it was the perfect setting for our wedding day.

The highlight of the day, was definitely when we first saw each other down the aisle, and walking down the aisle with my dear old dad.  It was a beautiful moment, and one I will never forget.

...make sure you know what you want, before you go talking to suppliers

My best advice is to make sure you know what you want, before you go talking to suppliers.  Scour the net, Pinterest etc, for inspo.  If you don’t know exactly what you are after, then I feel this is where confusion can start to creep in, and you become unsure if you’ve chosen the right thing or not.  You need to be clear and concise, so that you don’t feel disappointed on your big day.  Think about yours and your partner’s taste, and try your best to emulate that on your wedding day.
