For their 140 guests, Nikki and Pat set forth to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere, with great music, food and wine. And that’s exactly what they did when they planning their country style wedding in Yandina here on the Sunshine Coast.

Poetic Proposal 

“Pat surprised me on a trip to London at Christmas with a sort of ‘poetry trail’ around London, where he used some of my favourite poems as clues to lead us to the next destination throughout the day. He incorporated my love of poetry, Christmas, adventure, and travel into the most amazing day, which ended with him proposing to me!”

 

Biggest Wedding-Planning Challenge

“Choosing the bridesmaid dresses! I had five bridesmaids; one lives in Kenya, one in Rockhampton, one in Melbourne, and the other two live near me (in Brisbane). It just made the dress choosing and fittings a bit of a logistical nightmare!”

True Love

“Pat is the kindest, smartest, most thoughtful person I know, but he also has a fun and romantic side which matches my own. He shares my love of music, travel, great food and wine… and he’s such a positive person. But above all of that, when we met each other, we just knew.”

Wedding Secrets 

Biggest splurge: Probably a tie between flowers (Willow Bud) and photographer (Gabriel Veit Weddings). Both were reasonably priced, mind you, but they were both recommendations and we fell in love with their work, to the point I don’t think cost would have mattered – we had to have them!

Best bargain: Our wedding invitations – we got them online for a great price.
