How they Met
Friends introduced Emma and Michael at an Annual Christmas pub crawl, as soon as they started talking it was obvious there was chemistry.
Emma: I remember being in awe of his smile and thinking to myself - this guy is gorgeous.
Michael: Emma's deep red hair at the time.
We now go to that same pub crawl every year to celebrate our meeting.
I was completely blindsided when he proposed , we'd been out to dinner at Madame Wu's where we'd been discussing our future and I'd been giving him stick for taking his time and suggested we go look at rings again, little did I know he was sitting on it. As we were walking back to the car along the pier he says "I don't think I can drive yet" I was walking slightly ahead and hear "I've just got to do this first" and I swing around with "What?" to see his standing there with the box open. I tackle hug him crying saying I wrecked the proposal. We then sat down, both had a mini cry and he asked me to marry him.
Michael: Bloody Emma trying to ruin an amazing night!
In planning their wedding :-
Emma's dress was from The Bridal Company at Helensvale; I knew I wanted lace but I didn't know what style, I liked the fact that it was the same lace throughout and when I tried it on, I felt like a bride so I knew it was the one.
Hillstone St Lucia was where they had their ceremony and reception. The Rosewood Room- We chose this venue for multiple reasons; easy for guests both central and in one place, great staff, great food and beautiful surrounds.
Was there any unique or funny moments that stood out in your mind about the day?
Emma - While at UQ, Adam asked us to lay on the grass, I wasn't sure how my dress would go getting down so I dropped to my knees and did a push up....which then resulted in a few more for good measure.
Any advice for future couples?
Don't sweat the small stuff - pick out your big rocks, your must haves and let everything else fall into place. At the end of the day you've married the love of your life, if things don't go to plan ask yourself - did I get married today? If yes - your day was perfect and your next chapter has begun so enjoy it!
Michael: Enjoy and savour the day. It goes very quickly.
