Nezz and Andrew fell in love amidst a spirited teenage shaving cream fight. True story.
Andrew, the larrikin, obviously had his eye on young Nezz (I mean, could you blame him?) as he went out of his way to single her out to douse her in shaving cream – now that’s what I’d call a “meet cute”. In all seriousness it was the stuff young love is made of, and seven years later Andrew made it official when he proposed to his sweetheart.
I’m can’t say for sure they’ve made shaving cream fights something they do on each anniversary, but I’d like to hereby officially suggest it. And not only for Nezz and Andrew, because I feel we could all use a little shave cream romance in our lives. Just don’t come crying to me if you get it in your eye.
This happy couple planned a relaxed stylish wedding at one of the Sunshine Coast’s more affordable wedding venues, which maintains a fitting elegance. Twin Waters Golf Club offers both ceremony and reception packages, and is a great venue option for those wanting to take the hassle out of the day, allowing you to plan everything in one location with the help of a dedicated coordinator.
Bride Nezz was a vision in a gown from Brisbane bridal boutique, White Lily Couture, and brightened up the day with posies by wedding florist Willow Bud. Their ceremony and reception was styled with white simplicity by Cloud Nine Weddings.
Jennifer Oliphant Photographer was there for Nezz and Andrew’s gorgeous Twin Waters wedding to ensure it was all recorded for posterity.
Kate Ellen Makeup Artist at work prettying up the bride “We had light rain early in the morning, but we were lucky enough that the weather cleared up in time for our ceremony and it was a perfect day!” “We wanted a wedding theme that reflected us as a couple; warm, easy-going and fun.” “We always support each other and are each other’s priority. We have a lot of respect and appreciation for each other and try to communicate openly.” “Our main priority was finding an affordable venue that could provide a relaxed but stylish setting for both our ceremony and reception. We wanted our venue to be easily accessible for our guests and close to accommodation. Twin Waters Golf Club ticked all the boxes for us!” “Our bridal party photos were shot on the golf course at Twin Waters Golf Club. Then Andy and I travelled to Cook Road at Bli Bli with our photographer and videographer.”
“As Andy works away we try to spend as much quality time together and do things as a couple that we both enjoy.” “When we met, it all started at a shaving cream fight at Andy’s sister Patricia’s 17th birthday party back when I was in high school! Andy kept singling me out and covering me in shaving cream and from that moment it was on!” “We surprised our guests by having our bridal party enter reception by dancing in to Tambourine by Eve! Considering we sprung this on our bridal party about 10 minutes before they entered reception, they all executed their dance moves with killer style! Then Andy and I entered reception by dancing to a mashup of Let Me Clear My Throat by DJ Kool, MC Hammer’s You Can’t Touch This, Gangnam Style by Psy, and Beyonce’s Single Ladies! It was goofy, spontaneous and so much fun!”
