Professional triathlete Emma married Coach Drew in a classic Hinterland chapel wedding at all-in-one venue, Weddings at Tiffany’s. For the active Brisbane couple, it was a fitting moment on a mountain climb when Drew asked Emma to be his wife.
Emma shares her wedding planning story and why they chose a hinterland chapel wedding for their special day…
“The views at Weddings at Tiffany’s were the main reason we chose the Sunshine Coast and in particular the hinterland region. We wanted a wedding that had an amazing location and venue and Tiffany’s fit this to a tee.”
Biggest Wedding Planning Challenge
“Drew and I both spend a lot of the year overseas so this was a challenge in ensuring we did as much planning as possible while at home. Luckily the internet is a great tool and we were able to order certain things online even when we weren’t at home.”
“We were very happy with all our suppliers and looking back on our wedding day there was nothing that we would change. Every person we had involved in our day made us feel special and created everything just as we had planned.”
Why I Married Him
“We are best friends and complement each other in every aspect of our lives. Even though we are opposites this makes our relationship even better and helps us each become a better person.”
